Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. - 2 Corinthians 9:7 (NIV)

One New Year’s Eve when I was a young adult, I went to bed sobbing as I reflected on all that had gone wrong over the past year. I desperately prayed to God that the next year would be better.

A year later, I was back on my feet again....

Today's Prayer
Gracious God, thank you for all the blessings you have given us. May our gifts reflect our gratitude for all that you have done. Amen.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”

Join us every Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. (CST) for prayer and worship on Facebook Live.
