Prayers for hope

Heavenly father, this day we bring to you our prayer for hope

Into a world where we see so much pain and suffering – We pray for hope
Into lives where we see pain and suffering – We pray for hope
Into our communities, wherever we see divisions – We pray for hope
Into our own lives when we feel lost or disheartened – We pray for hope
Amen

God is our hope and strength,
a very present help in trouble.

Therefore will we not fear, though the earth be moved,
and though the hills be carried into the midst of the sea;

Though the waters thereof rage and swell,
and though the mountains shake at the tempest of the same.

There is a river, the streams whereof make glad the city of God,
the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.

— Psalms 46: 1-4
