In Hope

Photo by Mr. Dickie

In hope we pray!
Come to us, O Lord!
In our sorrow and our joy!
In our emptiness and our hope!
In our life and in our death!

Adversity

Lord, may grace make possible what my nature seems to make impossible. You know how little I am able to suffer and how quickly I collapse when the slightest adversity rears its head.

Change

I pray to accept, with a serene mind, the things I cannot change, knowing it is futile to be obstinate about the inevitable. I pray to be resolute to take action in things that must be changed.

In the midst of anxious conflict, we can come to the Lord in prayer. He is able to give us serenity to accept the things we cannot change, courage to change the things we can, and wisdom to know the difference.

Keeping a diary of how God answered our prayers through individuals or new experiences is one way to document our new life in Christ.
