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.
Mark 16:15 And [Jesus] said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation.”It’s easy to lose sight of some of the most important—and simplest—work we are meant to do as followers of Jesus. In our churches, we can be overwhelmed by the labors of keeping things running, of merely surviving. We can become slavishly devoted to the maintenance of familiar practices. We worry so much about rocking the boat that we aren’t as adventurous as we should be. Jesus cuts to the chase here, as he gives marching orders to his followers, and to us.
Proclaim the good news to the whole creation.
