Stories of God at Work

from United States

About 15 years ago, my son died suddenly. I always gave him the devotional each quarter to help him understand God’s love. He was a really good, hard-working, and healthy young man, but he got involved with drugs. He became very depressed over a relationship and ended up taking his own life. We were devastated, but in his house, next to his bed, we found his copy of Our Daily Bread, open to the day he died. At the funeral, we read that day’s Scripture passage from the devotional and it was a comfort to us. Your ministry is truly…

It all started in 1938 with a small radio program called Detroit Bible Class. With his gravelly voice, Dr. M. R. DeHaan quickly captured the attention of listeners in the Detroit area, and eventually the nation.

Thinking of Prayer as Jesus Taught
My Utmost For His Highest

Our thinking about prayer, whether right or wrong, is based on our own mental conception of it. The correct concept is to think of prayer as the breath in our lungs and the blood from our hearts. Our blood flows and our breathing continues “without ceasing”; we are not even conscious of it, but it never stops. And we are not always conscious of Jesus keeping us in perfect oneness with God, but if we are obeying Him, He always is. Prayer is not an exercise, it is the life of the saint.

Pocketful of Rocks
Our Daily Journey

Something about my 4-year-old daughter’s outfit looked odd. Taking a closer look, I noticed that her pockets were packed with stones. While our family had been roaming an outdoor area, she had been picking up pebbles and saving them. I had to empty her pockets; it was making it hard for her to walk!

Calming The Storm
Our Daily Bread

While Hurricane Katrina headed toward the coast of Mississippi, a retired pastor and his wife left their home and went to a shelter. Their daughter pleaded with them to go to Atlanta where she could take care of them, but the couple couldn’t get any money to make the trip because the banks were closed. After the storm had passed, they returned to their home to get a few belongings, and were able to salvage only a few family photos floating in the water. Then, when the man was taking his father’s photo out of its frame so it could…
