Lord, my Hope, my soul is dark and hopeless. I am before You seeking the help I should have asked You for long ago. Forgive me, for trusting in anything but You. In Your Word, You said that Your thoughts toward me are of peace, for a future, and a hope. Lord, thank you for thinking toward me at all. Let Your promises penetrate the deepest recesses of my soul and well up Your hope within me. Amen.
