Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Hope and prayer

Dear God,
    I am full of wishes,
    full of desires,
    full of expectations.
    Some of them may be realized, many may not,
    but in the midst of all my satisfactions and disappointments,
    I hope in you.
    I know that you will never leave me alone
    and will fulfill your divine promises.
    Even when it seems that things are not going my way,
    I know that they are going your way
    and that, in the end, your way is the
    best way for me.
    O Lord, strengthen my hope,
    especially when my many wishes are not fulfilled.
    Let me never forget that your name is Love.
