Morning Thought: Interweave faith, hope and love together to make your prayers strong. Faith trusts God’s character. Hope is a confident expectation that he will fulfill his Word. And love is a life poured out for Jesus and others, just like his life was laid down for us. The whole goal of faith is to walk over the bridge of hope to get to the ground of love. Faith, hope and love will make your prayer life strong like a pillar. Listen to how Paul prays: “For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus…For God is my witness, how I long for you all with the affection of Christ Jesus. And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment” (Philippians 1:6, 8-9, NASB).
