We come to You today with heavy hearts and in need of Your hope. The world around us can be a dark and difficult place, and it can be easy to lose sight of the light that You offer. But we know that You are the source of all hope, and we trust in Your promises.
We ask that You would fill us with Your hope and peace, and that You would help us to trust in Your goodness and Your plans for our lives. We know that You are sovereign and that You are working all things together for good, even when we can’t see it.
We pray for those who are struggling and who feel hopeless. We ask that You would be close to them and that You would bring them comfort and strength. We pray for those who are facing difficult circumstances, and we ask that You would give them the wisdom and resources they need to navigate through them.
We pray for Your kingdom to come and Your will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. We trust that You are in control, and we ask for Your grace to sustain us in all situation.
We pray this in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
