Prayer for May 4: Please pray with me. Eternal Hope, today we lift up your church. With you hope springs eternal. Yet, sometimes that can be difficult for some of your followers to grasp and hold onto. That’s not surprising when we see all the crap going on around us – the lack of value of others, of your creation. There are plenty of messages of hopelessness that consume so many. Yet, your message is a message of hope – a future that is better than the present. Your message is a message of light. Let your light shine bright. Let us be the bearers of your light. Amen.
