Prayer For Renewed Hope

Lord, renew our hope
when unexpected crises
throw us off the path,
When, like the disciples scattering to Emmaus,
we are discouraged and confused.

They had been hoping
that Jesus would be the one to redeem Israel.
After his death, they could not see
the future they had expected.
They could not see him,
walking beside them, teaching them.

When we cannot see the path ahead,
shake use out of our expectations.
Help us to see that you are with us,
teaching us on the way,
breaking the bread that will sustain us.

Thanks for the great prayer! As a Chaldean Catholic from Detroit, it is very interesting to read about your journey and insight on the persecution of Christians in Iraq. Thank you!
