This minisode features the reading of an anonymous prayer called the Prayer of An Aging Woman. The writer showed great insight and humor as she cried out to God for her needs in the later years of her life. This prayer could easily be offered by any of us as we ourselves get older.
This plan takes you through the entire bible in one year. The
scriptures are divided up into sixteen “parts” and organized in
semi-chronological order. You’ll read two or three chapters a
day, and sometimes skim through larger portions that contain
genealogies, census information, etc.
PSALMS OF PRAYER
One Psalm is listed each day for you to slowly pray through,
making its words your own. By the end you’ll have prayed
through the book of Psalms 2.5 times.
Each day you come to a new biblical book there will be a a
short animated video on The Bible Project website about that
book’s design and message and what to look for as you read.
You can also sign up to have those videos emailed to your
inbox. In addition to videos regarding books of the Bible, you
will find theme videos relating to several topics that appear

This minisode features a sample of text written in the early 5th century by Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, in north Africa. The text which is read is from Book 19 Chapter 20 of “The City of God.”
In this rather massive book, written after the Visigoths sacked Rome in 410 A.D., Augustine makes the case that the abandonment of the old Roman gods did not lead to this crisis. Rather, Augustine contrasts the City of Man (Earthly ways of conducting life) with the City of God (Heavenly ways of conducting life).
It in, we remember the end of the Lord Jesus’ work on Earth in the 1st century and His triumphant return to Heaven as the King of Glory foretold in Psalm 24. Though this celebration has suffered some neglect over the years, there are a number of people who are trying to bring awareness of this feast back to the church, despite there being no cultural celebration to go along with it such as Christmas and Easter.
Here is a link to a great sermon on the Ascension.
