Sunday's Prayer of Hope and Encouragement (Day 18 - Hope Against Hope)

I hope today has been a day of refreshing and rest.  The Word of God encourages us to forsake not the assembling of ourselves together.  The company of like-minded people refreshes us and compels us to go deeper into the things of God.

Pray this prayer with me:

Dear Lord, at times trials come in our lives that shake us to the very core.  We don't know how we'll ever recover.  There is such pain and a looming darkness that makes it difficult to see the light of Your presence.  Help us to know in our hearts, You are there.  You are faithful.  You are a present help in times of trouble.  You hold us up and enable us to endure.

God use this time to perfect us.  Use this experience so that we reflect Your image and become more like You.  Nothing we go through is ever solely about us or for us, but let our testimony be an answered prayer for someone else and an encouragement to the hopeless.

We may never understand the why behind our story, but we choose to trust You.  Your plans for us are good.  In all things, we desire for You to be glorified.

In Jesus' name.  Amen.
