Praying for the virtue of hope has been more specifically on my radar recently. Watching the news covering local and world events can easily lead to discouragement. The stock market declines and our retirement accounts follow in like fashion. In the fight for whose lives matter, more and more people are killed. The atrocities against humanity in the Middle East continue. Our own government gives Planned Parenthood more of our tax dollars even after the horrendous revelations from the videos provided by the Center for Medical Progress. We need hope for a better world.
“Say to those whose hearts are frightened: Be strong, fear not! Here is your God. He comes with vindication; with divine recompense he comes to save you.”
