Almighty God, I come before you on this day asking you to restore our hope. Lord, hope and faith is the cornerstone of our daily lives but, sometimes life gets in the way, and we sometimes find it difficult to hold on to hope.
Lord the Bible says Romans 12:12 – Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer. Romans 15:13 – Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
Deuteronomy 31:6 – Be strong and of good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
1 Peter 1:3-5 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. 4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you. 5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
Ephesians 1:18 The eyes of your understanding being, enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints.
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. 18 While we look not at the things which are, seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are, seen are temporal; but the things which are, not seen are eternal.
