A Prayer for Hope, Spiritual Discernment and Peace
Heavenly Father, I thank You greatly for our Lord Jesus Christ, our light of Hope. I, Your humble servant, come before You today in need of hope. There are times when I feel so weak, helpless and uncertain. Sometimes I feel hopeless because I have sinned.
I pray to be strengthened. Fill me with confidence that in You, there is hope for a better future and a better life. Build my faith in You. May I wholly trust in Your unfailing providence and everlasting mercy and love.
1 Peter 1 : 3 – 6 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living Hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

Praying for Discernment
Lord Jesus, I pray to be always filled in Your love and your Holy Spirit. Give me discernment between right and wrong, between good and evil and between what is of You and the world. In you, I will prosper and rejoice. Through you, I can conquer anything that is coming from the world.
I pray for the same hope to continue in my life as i strive to love my neighbour as You have taught me to. Help me follow Your great examples and be better in life so that reflect your light to those around me. Help me, Lord Jesus, to always extend my warmth and kindness.
May I set a good example in Your ways for my young ones. Help me to be the example of what it means to be called a Christian, so that they may be in awe of You, our Lord and Saviour.

Praying for healing
Lord Jesus, I lift up all those who hope to recover from their illnesses. You know their deepest desires and the pain they go through.
May Your light of Hope never grow dim in them, as they hold steadfast to fervent prayer and ask You for healing in all they undergo, to get well in health, mind and soul.
Matthew 12 : 21 In His name the nations will put their hope.
Peace and Unity in my life
I hope for peace and unity around me, in my home, my relationships, my work and my country. May this peace begin with me so that I can contribute wholeheartedly towards a better, long-lasting relationship in my family. May it progress towards to a better society and a better world around me.

Steadfast Daily Prayer
Last but not least, Lord Jesus, I hope that I hold steadfast to prayer everyday of my life. May I rely on the word of God for the eternal nourishment of my soul.
I pray to put on the armor of the word of God, as I give Him all the glory. In Your blessed name, Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!
