About

Welcome to Upper Room Daily Reflections.

Here at Upper Room Ministries, we say, “Every Day — Find a Way.” We invite you, every day, to find a way to spend some time with God in reading, prayer, and meditation.

Here’s how to use Daily Reflections:

  1. Read Daily Reflections online. Or subscribe to a feed (RSS or email) to have the reflection pushed to you every day.
  2. Read each day’s quote from an Upper Room book or magazine. Spend some time thinking about these words and how they speak to you that day. As you spend time with the quote, it will deepen within you, bringing you new insights and connections.
  3. Read the scripture reading each day. The scripture reading is from the week’s lectionary scriptures. (Read more about the lectionary.) Read the scripture meditatively and prayerfully. (Try doing Lectio Divina with both the scripture reading and the quote for the day.)
  4. Close your meditation time with prayer. If you would like to, submit a prayer to the Upper Room Prayer Center.
  5. Share your thoughts with others by commenting on that day’s reflection on the Daily Reflections web page.

I read The Upper Room daily for more learning & inspiration. More daily reading of the Bible increases my Christian faith.

I start my day with The Upper Room daily readings which helps uplift me in my times of need, and that gives me God’s strength and love to continue to live , love and work all in his name.

My day doesn’t start without my UPPER ROOM and ALIVE NOW meditations. It’s here that I feel that I’m face-to-face with Jesus the closest in that day.

Dear Brother/Sister,

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ.

I am Somie, from Pakistan. Urdu and Punjabi are the biggest languages of this country. I visited your website (daily.upperroom.org/) and impressed by your work. I have one suggestion regarding booklets, sermon, tracks, and Bible studies and recording, it would be good, if these will be available in our native languages in Urdu and Punjabi. Reaching out to the people in their own languages is very helpful, effective and fruitful. If your ministry is interested and keen to reach the unreached and untold in Pakistan with the materials in native languages. I can arrange to translate for messages, bible studies, biblical tracks, books and also Urdu page on your ministry website. Our all services will be provided with reasonable rates and whatever we get we use it to spread the word of God.

Would please to hear from you,

With prayers,
Somie
Pakistan

I find the Daily reflection helps my spiritual growth. Why is there not a link to the Daily reflection page on your home page? Fortunately I have it bookmarked on my iPad, but if I ever lost the bookmark I am concerned that I would not be able to find the page again. And I am concerned that others do not have access to this great resource via your home page.

Help! My family and I really enjoy the Upper Room daily devotional and reflections that comes to us via e-mail. We have been reading them both onlilne for a few years. Our last devotional was sent on December 7,2012. Is there some sort of problem in why we are not receiving either one? Please if you need me to re-subscribe I will do so. I still want to receive both Daily devotional and Reflections. There are a true inspiration to us. Thank you and God Bless,and have a Blessed New Year!

The Upperroom reflection helps me to reflect and draw near to God. It reminds me of His love, goodness, grace and mercy.

I shared my thoughts on yesterday’s devotion. March 18, 2013 I had a real problem with the question that didn’t seem to reflect the “reflection”. Today I can’t comment and am still only getting yesterdays. Have you bumped me off because you didn’t like what I thought and shared?

I too, like some of the above posts have been unable to download daily devotions. This morning, I tried to subscribe, but still haven’t been able to find the website. If there is a charge, I will be willing to pay. Thank you

Would like to unsubscribe, but can not.
You are using google feedburner, and they seem to require an account and password. Have never had an account or password with feedburner, and am not about to get an account.
Please unsubscribe me.

I CONTACTED YOU RECENTLY ABOUT NOT RECEIVING MY DAILY E-MAIL. WHEN I STARTED RECEIVING THEM AGAIN THEY WERE AND STILL ARE A DAY BEHIND.

BEFORE I DECIDE WHETHER TO UNSUBSCRIBE OR NOT, I AM GOING TO ASK ONE(1) MORE TIME. WHY IS MY E-MAILED DAILY DEVOTIONAL, ALL OF A SUDDEN, FOR THE PREVIOUS DATE AND NOT THE CURRENT DATE ?

I really enjoy receiving the URDR; however, for the past 2wks, I have not received it daily, on e-mail, but have to go to the web site. Is there a problem? Thank you.

Blogging at the corporate level means connecting with readers through building genuine relationships with others online. Having a blog that is regularly filled with fresh content and rich in keywords for your business can provide many benefits.

The reasoning behind publishing content frequently in your site is to give readers
more to view and also to also ping the search engines more often.
Usher Raymond popularly called just Usher has
chosen to reside the life of an celebrity which now
means living inside the light of media attention each day.

I was charged for a subscription renewal on my iPhone today. The email notification says “The Upper Room Subscription (Automatic Renewal).” I do not wish to renew but I cannot find any way to cancel the automatic renewal or to ask for a refund.

Thank you for notifying us that there is a problem. you are working on it and keeping us informed. I support you still sending the daily message out as the word is good.

I receive your “Daily Reflections” online, based the Bible Readings for the day. I enjoy these, but have a question. Can these be read for a future day. – for instance for the upcoming Sunday’s Scriptures?
