Personal Note to Readers

If you are new to Daily Prayer, welcome to our community. We are people of all different denominations, from many countries and different walks of life, united by our love of Christ and confession of faith in Him.

In addition to the Daily Devotion, we have recently added a short Daily Inspiration, which I hope you will enjoy. There are many other features on the site designed to assist people in learning about Christ and deepening their faith; we hope you will take time to explore them.

By all means take a minute to leave a short comment about today's Daily Devotion or anything else you might have on your mind. Don't worry if you sound critical -- it's very helpful to get criticism, even from people who don't like something. So feel free to post whatever you might want, within the guidelines that it be Christian in nature and tone.

If you would like to become a contributor to any part of Daily Prayer, please contact us.
