United Methodist Church
Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God. For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jews on behalf of God's truth, to confirm the promises made to the patriarchs so that the Gentiles may glorify God for his mercy, as it is written:
"Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles; I will sing hymns to your name." Again, it says, "Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people." And again, "Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles, and sing praises to him, all you peoples." And again, Isaiah says, "The Root of Jesse will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; the Gentiles will hope in him."
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.
More Than Enough Hope
We bless you and we praise your holy name Lord.
Thank you for your Love, your mercy, and your Grace.
O God of hope Pour out your Holy Spirit upon us,
fill us with all joy and peace, as we believe in your Holy Mystery.
By the power of the Holy Spirit help us to abound in hope,
a hope rooted in our Lord Jesus Christ.
As we hope in your word, in your promises, produce in us a limitless hope.
Allowing it to awaken, and be strengthened
more and more each day as we abide in you.
Lead us and guide us and empower us in our seasons of relief to
Equip us for our seasons of suffering, giving us hope, joy, and peace,
delivering us from our despair.
Oh Jesus, our confident expectation is in your coming for our salvation,
For that we are forever thankful.
May you have all the praise, all the honor, and all the glory.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
