Precious Hope

For it was by hope that we were saved; but if we see what we hope for, then it is not really hope. For which of us hopes for something we see? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.

In the same way the Spirit also comes to help us, weak as we are. For we do not know how we ought to pray; the Spirit himself pleads with God for us in groans that words cannot express. And God, who sees into our hearts, knows what the thought of the Spirit is; because the Spirit pleads with God on behalf of his people and in accordance with his will. (Roman 8:24-27 GNB)

My daughter often prays for the end of Global Warming. I have also prayed for issues that seemed too hard. How can the hearts of hardened people be melted? When can the outcasts find relief?

We need to be faithful, because our Lord is faithful. Our prayers and praises are companion to the Holy Spirit. Be patient, because our Lord is readying the hearts of the people. When the term is full the Holy Spirit will ignite the compassion of the people, and the world will be changed.
