God is Our Shield in Times of Crisis

January 6, 2021 by Rev. Kimberly C. Orr

In times of crisis, we turn to the Psalms as our prayer book. Rev. Kimberly Orr, publisher of The Upper Room, calls us together to pray for the United States and our world. Lord, our God, we take refuge in you. (Psalm 7:1a)


Rev. Kimberly C. Orr serves as the publisher of The Upper Room.

For further reflection, we invite you to read "The Path of the Sword Bender" and "Bringing a Sword to a Garden" by Kimberly Orr.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
