Dear Lord, thank you for your son, Jesus. Through him, we get to enjoy a great future. But Lord, we go through so many trials that leave us feeling discouraged and hopeless about the future. So many bad things are happening today that are causing me to lose hope in the great future that you have promised. Give me hope and strength that I may be able to stand in faith and continue to walk in your great plans. In Jesus’ name, I believe and pray, Amen.
