Here’s a prayer of hope inspired by Lamentations 3: 22-26. It was written by Bob Hostetler.

(inspired by Lamentations 3: 22-26)

Lord, I praise you
because your unfailing love
never ends!
By your mercies I have been kept from complete destruction.
Great is your faithfulness;
your mercies begin afresh each day.

You are my inheritance;
therefore, I will hope in you.

You are unfailingly good
to those whose hope is in you,
to those who seek you.

Teach me to wait quietly for your salvation.
Help me to submit to your yoke of discipline.
Let me sit alone in silence beneath your demands.
