God, today may I love the good I see, encourage the excellence I encounter, and strengthen the wellness in need of nurture. For you hold us all together in a warm, cosmic embrace. Amen.

Carry These Words in Your Heart Today

Love sees the good in others.

Today's Picture

I love this worship center from a Taizé service. In this service, the music and prayers bind us together throughout the world. God holds us all in a warm, loving embrace.


Today's quote by Robert Morris observes that "love is the capacity to see everyone and everything as interconnected." Where do you experience that connection?

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.
