Upper Room

In the gap between Ascension and Pentecost, Luke tells us that those closest to Jesus returned to the upper room, where he had provided for them in the past. There they devoted themselves to prayer. When the next step in God’s story looks as if it will have to be taken in darkness and ignorance, Luke invites us to rest in the knowledge of what God has already done for us. “Go to your upper room,” says Luke, “and pray, trusting that God’s faithfulness will supply the strength you need.”
