A Prayer for Hope

Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who mercifully restores my soul within me. Great is Your faithfulness. 

Lord, change my heart to see what You see, to want what You want, and to do what You tell me to do, either through Your written word or the leading of Your Spirit. 

Show me a vision of eternity where you make all sad things untrue. 

Teach me to keep Your perfection and sovereignty firmly in mind no matter what I am shown by sources less reliable than You. 

Teach me to focus on You and not my surroundings. Teach me this is what real worship is. 

Teach me to put feet to my faith through hope in Your promises of salvation, perfection and peace. 

Teach me to trust Your goodness in all things. I only know good exists because You made me to want it. If there was no good, I would never be dissatisfied with my life circumstances or anyone else's. I would never think "That's not good." 

Be first in my heart all my days. 

Teach me to be grateful for every situation as a way to draw closer to You. 

In Jesus' name,
