Bathe me in Your glory, Lord and show me that everything is according to Your plan.

For Spiritual Hope

O Lord, we stand before You, your humble servants, and in need of Your hope. Thank You Father that our hope, which is rooted and grounded in Christ Jesus is not for this world only, but has a most glorious and eternal perspective. If we were only to hope in this life, we would be pitied more that anyone else.. but praise be to God, that our hope is in Christ, Who has been raised from the dead and in so doing has become the first-fruits of those who die in the Lord.

Thank you Lord that you are Victorious over every trouble and obstacle. Thank You Father that our citizenship is in heaven and Christ Jesus is that blessed Hope, for whom we all eagerly await, knowing that when we see Him we shall be changed in His likeness – what a glorious hope we have in Him.. a hope that is secured for us in heaven, for which we praise and glorify Your holy name.

Thank you Lord that You are producing in us great endurance through the hard places. May we set our heart and minds on things above, knowing that Christ is, seated at the right hand of God and our life is hid with Christ in God.. and we are complete in Him. Father thank You for this spiritual hope that we have in Him, knowing that He is our eternal and abundant life and that when He appears we too will appear with him in glory. Praise Your holy name ,


for Hope and Trust

Father, sometimes it does feel that you have left us in the battle. We know that you are with us, but so are our feelings of aloneness. The Enemy seems to be taking ground. Our crying out to you seems to go unanswered. We know you are at work, but help us trust you in the midst of our questions. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
