Almighty God unto whom all hearts and minds are open and from whom nothing is hidden, thank you for the hope that is in Christ Jesus.

  •  Hope for recovery and restoration of self-esteem and dignity.
  •  Hope for the healing of hurt and disease ridden hearts.
  •  Hope for the freedom to love and experience the joy of living and for envisioning all the wonderful possibilities life has to offer.
  •  Hope for an end to terror and terrorism.
  •  Hope for courage to practice and work for justice and justice causes.
  •  Hope for a heart that affirms and embraces marginalized people.
Dear Lord, in your mercy hear this prayer.

In Jesus’ name. Amen
