Bottle

Quinn G. Caldwell

God knows that behind every revenge fantasy and every bit of righteous anger and every unholy wish for our enemies’ demise lies some ancient hurt or old wrong or fresh wound. And God bends down from on high to gather our tears.


Partners

Mary Luti

Still, you can’t offer Mercy to an enemy every week and not start to mean it, even a little. You can’t put Healing in someone’s hand for months on end without something rubbing off.


Not like Raffi

John Edgerton

God give me the courage to be a vessel for Your light, a channel for Your grace, a laborer in the vineyard of Your peaceable Realm.


Come By Here

Elsa Cook

Hope can feel impossible and maybe even absurd. But hope is more than issues and ideas. Hope is where we find God.


Abusers

Kaji Douša

The most effective prayers for abusers are offered from the strength garnered with distance. Pray with your cheek far from the strike and find your strength.


Homeless

Donna Schaper

Congregations are soup kitchens for the spiritually hungry, shelters for the spiritually homeless, nests for the baby bird in all of us.


Sin and Sickness

Kenneth L. Samuel

God let your deliverance be manifested in our decisions. Amen.


Your Will?

Tony Robinson

Sometimes people are skeptical that we can ever really know God’s will. But maybe the real problem is that, if we ask, we don’t like the answers we get.


Trading Guilt for Grace

Marchaé Grair

Divine One, extend your grace to me and help me extend that same grace to myself. Amen.


Do Not Fret (Easy for You to Say)

Talitha Arnold

Trust. Do good. Take delight. Commit to God’s way. Take the next step, and trust that God is with you.
