romans-12

Gracious God,
We place our hope in you.

Your hope overcomes all things,
Your hope heals our wounds and
Your hope restores our souls.

Your hope inspires us to action,
Your hope conquers the power of death,
Your hope frees us from the powers of this world.

In your son Jesus Christ we witness your hope made flesh.
We give thanks for your hope in action.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ,
The living Word, Amen.
