A Prayer for Hope
1 Peter 1 : 3 – 6 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living Hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
We thank You greatly for our Lord Jesus Christ, our light of Hope in Grace and Salvation. We, Your humble servants, come before You today in need of hope. There are times when we feel weak, helpless and uncertain. There are times we feel hopeless because we have sinned. We pray to be strengthened confident that in You there is hope for a better future and a better life. Let it start with great faith in You and trust in Your unfailing providence and everlasting mercy and love.
Romans 15 : 13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Lord Jesus, You are our light of Hope in Grace, Mercy and Salvation. We pray and hope to always be filled in Your love and with your Holy Spirit, for discernment between right and wrong, between good and evil and between what is of You and the world. We will prosper in You and rejoice in hope that we could conquer anything that is coming from the world, its’ lures into evil and temptations.
We pray for the same hope to continue in our lives as we strive to love one another as You have asked us to. Help us follow Your great examples and be better in life so that we could be the light of hope for the people around us who are in need of help, support and love. Help us, Lord Jesus, to always extend our warmth and kindness and may Your light shine through us for those who hope in You.
May we set a good example in Your ways for our young ones, be it our children or those around us. Help us to be the example of what it means to be called a Christian, so that they may be in awe of You, our Lord and Saviour.
John 5 : 6 When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, He asked him, “Do you want to get well?”
Lord Jesus, we lift up all those who hope to recover from their illnesses. You know their deepest desires and You know the pain they go through, together with their families. May Your light of Hope never grow dim in them, as they hold steadfast to fervent prayer and ask You for healing in all they undergo, to get well in health, mind and soul.
Matthew 12 : 21 In His name the nations will put their hope.”
We hope for peace and unity around us, in our homes, relationships, our work and our country. May it start with each of us as we contribute wholeheartedly towards a better long lasting relationship in families and progress towards a better society and for a better world around us.
Psalm 62 : 5 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone, my hope comes from Him.
Last but not least, Lord Jesus, we hope that we hold steadfast to prayer everyday of our lives and rely on the word of God for our the eternal nourishment of our souls. We pray to put on the armor of the word of God, as we give Him all the glory, in Your blessed name, Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!
