May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13).
Jesus, you are the God of hope. We have no one like you who fills our souls with joy and peace. We thank you, Lord, for you are our only hope. It is your hope that gives us rest. It is your hope that causes us to wake with expectation in the morning and lay down in peace at night. It is your hope that gives us the courage to live the Christian life with confidence knowing that you live in and through us. Jesus, we thank you for your resurrection has defeated death, our greatest enemy. Pray Lord, make us a people of hope, a people determined to believe your promises. You, Jesus, are our only HOPE! Amen!
–India B. Davis
