Morning Prayer

God our loving Father, sometimes we find it difficult to be hopeful. Sometimes life can be so discouraging. During Lent, remind us to turn to you and to one another to find a deeper hope and a deeper joy. Help us to see that no matter how hard life may seem, there are always people who want to help. Help us see that, above all, you want to fill our hearts with a peace that no one else can give. We pray in the name of Jesus, the Lord. Amen.
