Father God, you are the God of promises kept. You are the God of hope. Renew our spirit of hope in you. Replace doubt with assurance, darkness with light. Make in us a new heart. I ask these things in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them. I will remove the heart of stone from their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in my statutes and keep my rules and obey them. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.” (Ezekiel 11:19-20 ESV)
