Praying for Your Spouse: Hope
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit”—Romans 15:13.
Hope disperses despair. She brings forth new beginnings, refreshed revelations and improved aspirations.
Apart from hope we wander disengaged from a sense of belonging. We’re alienated from our true value. Morality becomes irrelevant. We conjure random possibilities for our eventual destiny.
We can ask God to immerse our spouse with hope in Christ. Calvary is the place where evil and suffering are met with the hope of love and forgiveness.
Lord of Heaven, remember my (husband/wife). I ask of you by the name of Jesus to open the gates of salvation fixing (his/her) eternal hope in you alone. Let the peace of Christ rule in (his/her) heart. Guard (his/her) mind and soul against the trappings in this world. Strengthen (him/her) according to Your Word. Fasten (his/her) joy to the promise of Your inheritance not earthly gain. Cause (him/her) to put (his/her) trust in the light of Christ so that (he/she) will be called (son/daughter) of light. Create in (him/her) a broken and contrite heart so (he/she) will not grieve the Spirit but the Spirit reign in (him/her). Grow (him/her) in faith and knowledge attaining a fullness of the Son of God.
Your way, O God, is holy; I put my trust in You, Amen.
