There's Hope!

O God, our hope and source of all life. We acknowledge today with joy the gift of life. Forgive us when we have taken for granted this precious gift or failed to redeem the time.

Lift our thoughts from self to You, from the me-soever to the whosoever; from the littleness of our deeds to the majesty and wonder of your mighty acts.

Grant us grace for another day. Send joy in the midst of sadness and forgiveness in the face of transgressions. Help us to find the strength to stand in the face of slander.

Our hope is in you, O God, to put all things right which are wrong. Open our eyes so we can see through faith that you are at work even when present circumstances deny it. In Your name, Amen

  1. This is most awesom Bishop McKenzie. Our women's ministry bible study group is discussing the book by Stormie OMartian, Just Enough Light for the Step I'm On, trusting God in the tough times. I just received a revelation on what I needed to do to encourage the ladies to continue the journal study guide and one way is to go through the steps.

    So when I came to Praycation and saw not only your title as The Journey Begins but the confirmation in the steps you list which I refer to in my audio recording.

    Thank you for not just being a trailblazer but a visionary as well rounded out by an example for all women of wonderment in the Lord.

    Peace in knowing...
