Episode 571


8 But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord, a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.

2 Peter 3:8 

There is nothing more true than the verse above, a day can sometimes fee like a thousand years, and you count the moments for class to be over. You set the GPS for your daily commute, and it says 60 mins, and you think, wow, I have to drive a full hour to get to the office and then another one back. Time can go by so slow, but yet so fast. 

We know from here on out that the year flies; before you know it, Starbucks will be selling pumpkin-spiced lattes, and it will be time to carve our pumpkins. You’ll blink an eye, and it will be Thanksgiving, and by then, your Christmas lights will be out of the attic and ready to be hung. 

If there is absolutely anything in this life that I have learned is that we as people spend too much time thinking about the past and worried about the future rather than staying present in prayer. 

My prayer is that we all have a productive fall. One full of moments with Jesus. One full of present fun-filled memories with our families. The only way we can accomplish this is by being intentional about our times of prayer and our time with those we love the most.

Put away the phone, and prepare for the fall. Set your new routines and make Jesus a priority. This can be our best fall yet.


Father God, we love you, and we thank you for the opportunity to pray with you daily, Lord, the opportunity to speak with you daily. We absolutely adore you. We love you, and we thank you for the blessings that you have given us and provided in our lives. We as a community are committed to preparing for the fall season; we are committed to redoing our routines and making you the priority, making our families the priority. We thank you for the roof over our heads, the food in our belly, and the people that surround us. We ask that you bless this beautiful Monday and the week ahead of us. It is in your 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.
