A Prayer Of Thanks For Our Solid Foundation

Father, we thank You for the hope we have which is an anchor for our soul, a hope both sure and steadfast. We’d like the world to believe in and comply with the teachings of Scripture so that our sojourn here is smooth with others affirming our decision to walk in Your ways, but Scripture tells us otherwise. If we are to share in Your glory we will also share in Your sufferings. But it’s not in vain, for in our suffering perseverance is developed, a character is built and unending hope will anchor our faith. Our foundation is unshakeable as we anchor it in Your remarkable provision for our sins forgiven, abundant life provided right here on earth, and future eternal bliss in heaven. We are a blessed people, so much so, that words fail to express our gratitude! Amen.
