For 60 years people have been blessed by the Today devotional published by Back to God Ministries International. Now, through the online version of Today, readers have a new way to reach out to others who may need prayer or encouragement.

“Part of our prayer and goal for all our media is that the conversations flourish beyond just our team speaking to an audience,” says Rev. Steven Koster, director of ReFrame Media, BTGMI’s English-language outreach. “We want to provide a way for Web users to develop into a community of God’s people ministering to each other.”

One reader, Praveen, read a devotional by CRC pastor Rev. Reggie Smith, titled “The Promise of the Spirit.” Praveen wrote in the online comments section, “I do believe that the Spirit will connect me with Christ as mentioned [in the message]. But at times it becomes very difficult to see that the Spirit is with us—when everything around me is falling apart.”

Someone who had read the same online devotional, as well as the comment, responded: “I believe God knows what you are thinking, even before you think it. If you are in his will, I believe your prayers will be answered.”

Another reader added: “Praveen, if you are a Christian, you already have the Spirit. It has been my experience that he is already speaking. We just need to learn how to listen.”
