Father God, your amazing story and lasting promise is our one true hope. May those who don’t know you find this hope in your gospel today. I pray in the precious name of Jesus, who humbled himself even to death to bring us this hope, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.” (Romans 5:2 ESV)
