Prayers for Hope and Strength
God never leaves us, never abandons us and never gives up hope in us. When you pray a prayer for hope, you are asking God to restore your hope. If you would like your prayer to be heard in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, one of the holiest points on earth, we can help you. Send us your personal prayer for hope and we will take it to the church, where the religious order there will pray over it and for you. Then we send photos of your prayer and candle back to you. Experience the power of prayer request for yourself.
Hope is what gives us a reason to continue in life and if you believe in God, you are never without it. Hope is something that He can provide, ensuring that you are always strong and with a reason to follow Him. However, there will be times when you feel low and may not understand what the reason is behind the difficult times you face. When the obstacles are all around, prayers for hope can help you move forward.
God will never give you more than you can handle . . . but He may give you more than you can handle on your own. Remember to turn to the Lord when things are too much and when you feel like there’s no hope left. He will give you the hope you need and provide you with the strength to carry on. His everlasting love is all you will ever need.
Here on this page, you’ll find prayers for hope that will help you as you go through life. Whether you are dealing with difficulties or trying to build your faith in the Lord, there will be tribulations and trials. Bask in the hope that the Lord provides and you will make it through.
But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.
