Conscious of the need for a closer walk with God, of a deeper spiritual need . . . I covenant with God to seek an enrichment of my own spiritual life by observing a period of devotions each day.
The Upper Room Covenant (1935)
This is the story of a little magazine and how it grew.
From its first issue in spring 1935 to now, The Upper Room daily devotional guide is prayer raised to a lifestyle. The vision has always been to reestablish the practice of daily prayer and Bible reading. But the magazine is also about people: its founders, its staff, and most of all, the readers who are also its writers.
Where the World Meets to Pray introduces and honors the people whove been a part of what God is doing through the international magazine and the worldwide ministries its spawned.
From the memories of staff and longtime editorial director, Mary Lou Redding, read about:
- how the daily devotional magazine was born out of the prayers of a womens Sunday school class in Texas
- the stories of colorful characters in our history
- how a magazine began with a circulation of 100,000 to become an international publication printed in 40 languages and 77 editions
- how The Upper Room continues to develop life-changing ministries today
