Prayer for November 29: Please pray with me. God of hope, today we pray that we would recognize the hope that you give the world – not in the form of freedom to buy stuff, nor in the accumulation of items. Open our eyes to see that the hope that you give is not in material things, but rather in a promise you give. A promise that tells us that no matter how hopeless the world might seem, you are there, accompanying us as we go through life. A promise that you will return and bring the fulfillment of your Kingdom. Amen.
