The Upper Room daily devotional May/June Issue Available Free as Downloadable PDF


NASHVILLE, Tenn. April 22, 2020 / The Upper Room / —  Since churches are unable to meet and gather safely in their buildings during the pandemic, The Upper Room is offering the May/June 2020 issue, both in English and Spanish, as a free downloadable PDF.

Upper Room Publisher and World Editor, Rev. Stephen Bryant, says, “We at The Upper Room are holding churches and our readers close to our heart, more than ever. This is our family connected through Christ, and we care deeply about each person’s physical and spiritual wellbeing.” Bryant continues, “The Upper Room devotional is a spiritual companion, a healing balm, to millions of Christians and their primary way to spend time with God each day. Nothing should disrupt this sacred connection if we can prevent it.”

The daily meditations, written by ordinary people, have offered spiritual encouragement for 85 years, from the days of the Great Depression through world wars, paper shortages, and other unwelcomed difficulties and challenges. The publication continues to thrive and is available today in over 100 countries, in 36 languages, and in several formats, including digital subscriptions. Nearly two-thirds of the print copies of each issue are purchased and distributed through churches, where pastors recommend it as a formative resource for personal devotional and small group discussions and use it widely in hospitality, outreach, and evangelism efforts.

Along with the free issue of the devotional guide, The Upper Room has created a webpage featuring resources to help create and maintain spiritual wellness during anxious times, including free eCourses for individuals and small groups, an online wall for posting and responding to prayer requests, and a special blog spot for sharing personal, theological reflections on the current global pandemic. The Upper Room is also offering Morning Prayer live each day at 11 AM (CT) on Facebook.

"In these strange new days...

...devoid of our regular routine and filled instead with uncertainty and a hum of anxiety, my husband and I have found the practice of joining The Upper Room each day at 11am (CST) via Facebook to pray, listen, and learn in community, including my sister in Houston. This is a much-needed healing balm." Join us on Facebook each day at 11AM Central.
