“Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.” Romans 12:12 NLT
Lord, we come to you humbly today thankful and rejoicing in our confident hope. We petition You today for our needs, for the things that You have promised us, and for testimonies of Your goodness to strengthen our faith and to draw those who don’t believe in You, to You as well. Pour our Yourself and Your Holy Spirit upon us, renew our hope, and give us courage and boldness to spread the gospel of Christ with those around us. Hold us close to You God and give us strength to endure the suffering and affliction that we encounter in our lives. Show us Your goodness and pour out Your love and lavish gifts on us so that we have testimonies to hold onto within our own lives and to share with each other. Hear our prayers and answer us favorably we pray. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
