Episode 311


So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again, and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.

John 16:22


Sometimes grief is one of the hardest feelings to understand. The lingering whys and the pain that you feel in the pit of your stomach. The fear of the unknown. The longing to just speak to someone one more time.


Grief can come in many forms.


Yesterday my best friend lost her dad. She said something that resonated with me. In her pain, she said, I don’t need prayers; they didn’t work. I know a lot of us, at times, can feel as if our prayers don’t work. I just want to remind us all that prayer reminds us that no matter how painful this side of eternity is, prayer helps us remember that Jesus is right by our side through it all.


I know this was a tough year, and we all have grieved a little differently. Hold onto the promise that in the world may seem as if it ending in the middle of your grief, but you will one day rejoice, and your joy will be back soon. 



Father God, we lift all who are mourning. We lift those that are grieving a loss. Loss of a person, a dream, a relationship. Help them father, comfort them during the painful days and the lonely nights. We know that you are the ultimate redeemer, the ultimate comforter, and the only presence we need. We love you; it is in your son’s Holy name that we pray, AMEN!

Hi, I'm Ali.
I want to encourage you on your faith journey!

I'm the coffee obsessed baker from Miami, FL who got too busy to find time to read scripture everyday. I knew my life was better with Jesus and I knew I wasn't the only one struggling with finding alone time with God every morning, so I put my dreams of opening a bakery aside and set out to produce a five minute daily devotional. What first started as an email chain, has now flourished into a beautiful community and I am so happy you are here!


We are a faith based community in pursuit of daily prayer. All it takes is five minutes - we know you're busy but He loves you still.
