PRAYER AND SCRIPTURE RESOURCES

In Lamentations 3:22-24, the prophet Jeremiah is horrified as he witnesses Jerusalem being destroyed before his eyes. His city suffers; his people cry out; what hope do they have?

It is within this context of social unrest and affliction that he speaks these words above -- "I will hope in him."

With our hope in God established by Christ, let us follow Him during this time of upheaval and uncertainty.

Here are resources to help you on your journey.

 

How can we pray for you?

If you have a specific prayer request, let us know. 

We'll add you to our prayer list.
