Our Hope Is In Christ

on May 22, 2017

Heavenly Father, Thank you for being strong enough to hold us in Your comfort. Thank You for being strong enough to and carry us when we are week.  Thank You for being a big God who nothing is impossible for.  Thank You for being a loving God who loves His children unconditionally.  Lord, we come before You today in need of hope.  Lord, where we feel despair and hopeless, we need you to help us throw down our anchor to find hope and strength to be immovable by the battles we face.  Lord, where we feel lost in our walk with You, we need hope to know that You go after the lost until You find us (Luke 15:4).   Lord where we feel we have lost who we are in You, we need hope to know that if we forget about ourselves and look to You, we will find both ourselves and You (Matthew 10:39 MSG).  Lord, where we feel discouraged about our future or how we will get there, we need hope to know that You have plans to give us a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11) and that man can plan his ways but the Lord directs his steps and establishes them (Proverbs 16:9).  Lord, where we feel You have left and abandoned us, we need hope to know You will never leave us nor forsake us (Deuteronomy 3:16).

Lord, fear has no place because our hope is found in You.  Lord, worry has no place because our hope is found in You.  Lord, doubt has no place because our hope is found in You.  Lord, hopelessness has no place because our hope can be found in You.  For God alone our soul waits in silence and quietly submits to Him, For our hope is from Him (Psalm 62:5).  For You are our hope; O Lord God, You are our trust and the source of our confidence (Psalm 71:5).  For all of our hope can be found in You.  How blessed and greatly favored is the man who trusts in You [believing in You, relying on You, and committing himself to You with confident hope and expectation] (Psalm 84:12).  So Lord we wait patiently on you, our soul [expectantly] waits, and in Your word do we hope (Psalm 130:5).  Uphold us according to Your word [of promise], so that we may live; And do not let us be ashamed of our hope [in Your great goodness] (Psalm 119:116).  Lord, we have desires that You have given us so help us to have expectation in You with the hope of seeing them manifest.  Help us to rest securely in our hope in You.  Let us be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer (Romans 12:12).  That You Lord, the source of hope will fill us completely with joy and peace because we trust in You.  Then we will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13).

In Jesus Mighty Name We Pray, AMEN!
