Pause for Prayer: SATURDAY 5/24

Hope means hoping when things are hopeless,
  - or it is no virtue at all...
As long as matters are still hopeful,
   hope is mere flattery or platitude;
it is only when everything is hopeless
   that hope begins to be your strength.

- G. K. Chesterton

help me hope for light
when I'm totally in the dark...

Help me hope for peace
in the midst of my distress...

Help me hope for joy
when sadness consumes me...

Help me hope for understanding
when I'm lost in confusion....

Help me hope for love
when I'm most alone...

Help me hope for faith
when I'm lost in doubt...

And when I feel most hopeless,
help me find my hope in you, Lord...
