Father, our hope is steadfast and secure as we trust in You for everything we have need of. We are grateful for Your divine presence and daily provision as we meet the challenges of each new day. Our hope is not diminished with these challenges, for we depend not on our own strength or wisdom, but on the One whose hope is secure, constant, and strengthening. Help us to be patient in affliction and faithful in prayer. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
