Allow these discouraging times to shift your hope to its rightful place.
Lord, You said in this world we would experience suffering, but You also told us to cheer up because You’ve overcome the world.
So, we can face this week expecting to see Your goodness. When trials come, whether one or many, whether family or financial, instead of getting weary, help us get excited! As we eagerly wait for you to show up, help us hold on to hope.
Lord, You promise to give us the strength to endure no matter how long the wait—and Your word is good with us.
Perform Your word, Your way. All our hope is in You. It’s in Jesus’ name we pray and give You thanks. Amen.
Prayer based on John 16:33, Psalm 27: 13-14.
