This advent season, take time to focus on prayer. Prayer is a way to connect with God and quiet our hearts amid the busyness of the holiday season. This week’s prayer focus is on gratitude.
The second week of Advent is all about hope
The second week of Advent is all about hope. We hope for peace in the world, for healing in our hearts, and for the coming of Christ. As we light the candles on the Advent wreath, we pray for each other and for all who are struggling this holiday season.
We pray for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one. We pray for those who are struggling with illness or addiction. We pray for those who are facing financial difficulties. We pray for those who are feeling alone or isolated.
We pray that God will bring hope to all who are struggling this Advent season. We pray that He will comfort those who are grieving, heal those who are sick, and provide for those who are in need. We pray that He will bring us all closer to Him this Advent season. Amen.
The hope that we have in Christ
We hope in Christ because He is our Savior. He came to Earth to save us from our sins. He died on the cross for us, and He rose again. Because of His sacrifice, we can have eternal life.
Our hope in Christ is also based on His promises. He promised that He would never leave us or forsake us. He promised to always be with us. He promised to give us peace and joy. When we put our hope in Christ, we can trust that He will keep His promises.
During this Advent season, let us remember the hope that we have in Christ. Let us focus on His sacrifice and His promises. And let us rejoice that because of Him, we can have eternal life.
The hope of His return
Each year, as Advent begins, we are reminded of the hope that we have in Christ. We hope for His return, when He will make all things new. This hope is what sustains us through the difficult times in life. It is what gives us strength to keep going when everything seems hopeless.
This Advent, let us remember the hope that we have in Christ. Let us hold onto this hope, and let it sustain us through whatever challenges we may face. Let us also remember those who do not have this hope, and pray that they may find it in Christ.
The hope of His glory
We long for the hope of His glory. The Lord Jesus Christ is our hope, He is the bright morning star that rises in our hearts. (Revelation 22:16) We lift our eyes to Him and He gives us strength. (Isaiah 40:31)
We pray for the hope of His glory to be revealed to us afresh this Advent season. That we would see Him as our Hope and Salvation. That we would trust in Him and His promises. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
We pray that the hope of His glory would give us courage to face whatever this world throws at us. That we would not be shaken or despair when trials come, but that we would fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. (Hebrews 12:2)
May the hope of His glory fill our hearts this Advent season, and may it carry us through whatever comes our way. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
