My Prayer for You

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope” (Romans 15:13).

Paul closes this great pastoral letter with this prayer. Today, this is my prayer for you!

May the God of hope … may the Lord Himself be your hope for this day and forever.

Fill you with all joy and peace … may you rise in the lasting joy and peace that come only from a saving relationship with Jesus.

In believing … may God continually draw you to trust the one, true object of our faith: Jesus Christ, your crucified and risen Lord.

So that by the power of the Holy Spirit … may you lean on God’s power for your journey of faith, even as Christ depended upon God’s Spirit during His journey toward the cross.

You may abound in hope … may the certain hope we have in God’s promises bubble up in your life and be a noticeable witness to those around you.

God of hope, fill us with true hope through Your Holy Spirit. Amen.
