Prayer for Hope

Father, Your child who You love is tired, confused, and overwhelmed.  Lord, center us. 

I've been told the HOPE that You promise is a confident expectation of good things from You.  In that case Lord, help Your children to apply Your HOPE to all the things we're worried about, confused about, and unsure what to do about it. Then, instead of expecting calamity, we can expect blessings.

For Your word says, "Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." -Isaiah 40:31

Father, I apply your HOPE, a confident expectation of good things to my finances.  I apply HOPE to my dreams, I apply HOPE to my relationships...

 -In Jesus' name, Amen.

What do you need to apply our Father's HOPE to in your life to?

Prayer for a Servant Heart

I am amazed at Mary's response to the news from an angel that she was to give birth to God's son, Jesus. 

She didn't argue saying, "it's not a good time right now". She obeyed. Saying, "I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” (Luke 1:38)

Oh Father, help us to be more willing.  God, I am ready to serve too...
