What is hope to you? Something that gets you through the day? Or something elusive that feels just out of touch? In this fifth week of Sacred Ordinary Days communal prayer, Kayla Craig, liturgist-in-residence and podcast producer at Sacred Ordinary Days, hosts this time of reflection and prayer to help you on your journey of becoming more wholly human, more fully faithful.

P.S. Did you miss last week’s prayer for the fearful? You can find it here

We invite you to join us for companionship and guidance as we seek to meet God in new ways with humility, grace, and mercy. Our time together will lead us right up to Ash Wednesday with a posture of reflection and hope in Christ. May this time together transform us to be more wholly human, more fully faithful.

To receive these prayers and reflections in your inbox, sign up for our newsletter at sacredordinarydays.com.

Each week, you’ll receive:

  • A personal prayer written for you by our Sacred Ordinary Days team
  • Scripture to meditate on
  • An audio prayer to stream from our podcast
  • Quotes and featured liturgies from a diverse group of Christian writers
  • Tools for your prayer practice
  • Reflection points for the journey

To meditate on:

Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful. // Hebrews 10:23 (NLT)

Oh! May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope! // Romans 15:13b (The Message)

You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word. //  Psalm 119:114 (NIV)

To reflect on: 

What is something (big or small) giving you hope today? What is one change you could make this week to tune your heart to hope? Poet Emily Dickinson wrote, “Hope is the thing with feathers.” What does that mean to you?
