Light is sweet, and it pleases the eyes to see the sun. - Ecclesiastes 11:7 (NIV)

I would spend time in the early morning just outside my back door. I don’t know what led me...

Today's Prayer
Creator God, thank you for the wonder of your creation through which you mend our hurting hearts. 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.
