A Prayer For Hope


Almighty God, I beg you to grant me the gift of hope.

My life is dark and full of sorrow. There seems nothing to look forward to but sadness.

Show me that life has duties and many pleasures still waiting for me.

Revive within me the desire to live.

Plant hope in my heart, that despair may vanish as the dew before the sun.

I know all good things come from you, and you have promised to give them

to your children who try to serve you.

Let the hope of happiness in the world, come to brighten my way.

I ask this in Jesus' name. Amen -- Prayer from an Ojibwa Christian community
