Daily Scripture

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Prayer Tip

These last several weeks, we have had a wonderful opportunity to learn the basics about the world’s most common religions. Though we may not hold the same beliefs, it’s easy to see some of the similar practices incorporated within each faith. There are a few that stick out to me. I find it encouraging that the Jewish people take the time to remember who they are. I like the tolerance the Hindus have for individual paths to finding God. I love how Buddhists seek selflessness. I appreciate the daily fixed times for prayer in Islam.

Lord God,

We confess we don’t understand how the world’s religions all relate to you, but we know we can all learn from each other through them. It might be easier if there were only one religion, but it wouldn’t be as interesting. Help us to take the things we’ve learned these last few weeks and incorporate them into our lives so that we might connect deeper with you and love others better.

In Jesus’ name,

Amen.
