A Collect for Hope through God’s Love

Holy Spirit, gift of the Father who abides in us, strengthen our hope, that our hearts would be lifted up and carried by the love that you pour into them and we would take courage and find joy in your presence and care for us, through Jesus Christ our Lord, upon whom you landed in Israel and who ascended to you and the Father in glory. Amen. ‘Hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.’ – Rom. 5:5
