We’ve been talking about and thinking about hope this summer, and we want to take time to acknowledge that You are the giver of all of our hope. Because of You and Your great story, we can see how You have worked throughout history to right what we have made wrong through our sin. By mercifully sending Jesus to rescue us from our sin, You have given us the ultimate hope—salvation and restoration in You.
We are so grateful that because of Jesus’ death and resurrection we can go forward each day with a living hope. We know that no matter what we face, You are with us and guide us. Help us live in that hope and continue to share it with others.
Lord, we thank You. We lift You up and glorify You together. Thank You for Your mercy, love and hope. We praise Your name!
In Jesus’ name, amen.
