As you set aside this time each day, know that you are not alone. Others are joining you in this journey. We find ourselves in different places and spaces but we are all still gathered together in the wide, loving embrace of Jesus.
Matthew 21:12-14 (NIV)
Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. “It is written,” He said to them, “‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.’”
The blind and the lame came to Him at the temple, and He healed them.

Whether we are full of joy, or having a time of dark and overwhelming emotion, Jesus is always beside us. Like the thief on the cross, He will not forget us. Knowing this helps us remember, too, the promises He made of a future filled with peace, hope and love. Click the link to listen or sing with us.
We often call out for Your Holy presence, but the truth is we have put obstacles between ourselves and You. Because of our own fears, we have built barriers between ourselves and others. In the name of Jesus, we ask You to break down the things that separate us from Yourself. Our real desire is to dwell together with You, to come into Your presence and be healed. Let us shout, like little children “Hosanna to the son of David!”
