One who has hope is not concerned with how wishes will manifest. And the prayer of a person of hope is not directed at the gift they hope for, but the prayer is offered to God who gives it. It’s about faith in the giver of all good gifts. The requests for the gifts are not demands, because the hope is that God gives only “good” things. With true hope you are willing to be open and to wait, even though you never know where, when, or how this gift might happen.

Read Hebrews 6:17-20


Dear Father God, my shepherd, help me hear your voice of assurance when I am lost and feeling hopeless. I yearn for your rest and safety when you and I are in each other’s presence. Sometimes I have fear and I may be tempted to run away from you….but please Father,  never give up on me. My complete hope is in You.
