read bible daily

Our Sermon Series is exploring our mission to “Love God and all others unconditionally.” In preparation for this week, we are reading Luke 11:1-4 to better understand prayer as a foundation for faithful living.

Find the daily readings below along with questions for reflection. Join (or begin!) the discussion in the comments. We’d love to hear from you about how reading the Bible daily is bringing you closer to God and one another.

You also may be interested in joining a small group that focuses on exploring the scripture for the following Sunday’s sermon or learning how to approach Bible study in general – or a variety of other opportunities to “seek answers to our questions” as part of a group. Check it out here!

  1. Only through prayer and self reflection have I been able to forgive. I am so grateful to God for the peace that comes after forgiving someone and the grace from Him when someone forgives me.

    I don’t know what I would do without God during troubled times. He gives me strength and patience and most importantly peace. The biggest challenge for me during troubled times Is to be still and immediately ask for God’s help not only for the situation but for the way that I respond to it.
