Welcome to the Prayer Site at Forward Movement.
Join more than a half million readers worldwide who use Forward Day by Day as a resource for daily prayer and Bible study.
Forward Day by Day is a booklet of daily inspirational meditations reflecting on a specific Bible passage, chosen from the daily lectionary readings as listed in the Revised Common Lectionary or the Daily Office from the Episcopal Church's Book of Common Prayer.
The meditations are rich in substance and offer a wide range of witness and experiences. Each month's meditation is written by a different author. Learn more in the Forward Day By Day Readers' Guide.
Isaiah 8:14 He will become a sanctuary, a stone one strikes against; for both houses of Israel he will become a rock one stumbles over—a trap and a snare for the inhabitants of Jerusalem.I am one of God’s children who is particularly gifted with learning things the hard way. On deadline or under stress, I stick to my to-do list and don’t waver. And then, when I’m almost done, when I can see the finish line, I trip on Jesus and end up falling into a pretty steep and gross shame spiral.
