Imagine sharing the same devotional with 1.5 million believers in more than 50 languages around the globe. The Moravian Daily Texts has been living this ecumenical dream for many years! First published in 1731 in Saxony, this little book grew out of a spiritual renewal of the Moravian Church (Unitas Fratrum) that dates back to Aug. 13, 1727. Today, more than 250 years after its first publication, the Daily Texts continues its promise of “a daily message from God that is new every morning.” The strength of the Daily Texts lies in presenting the Scripture unhindered by commentary or illustration. The texts are left to stand alone and to speak to each reader in his or her life. This also allows the Daily Texts to be adaptable to different patterns of devotion and study. The printed texts, hymn verses and prayers are the heart of the devotional guide. Their purpose is to help the reader get more closely in touch with God and to meditate upon the Word of God. Each day’s entry in this beloved daily devotional includes “watchwords” drawn from Old and New Testament verses. The North American editions of the Daily Texts feature inspirational hymns and prayers, with each month prepared by different writers from across the North American Moravian Church. These editions also provide recommended daily Bible readings that allow readers to complete the Bible in two years and Psalms in one year.
