today we pray for France. We pray that the people of France will come to know the hope we have in You. Lord, open hearts, minds and eyes to see that You are the only hope France needs.
Lord, teach us to live lives filled with hope so that others can see your hope in us. Lord, we pray that during advent, french hearts will be open to the moving of the Holy Spirit, and that many will see their need for the hope you bring and step out in faith to receive your gift of hope through the life born on Christmas so long ago. Father, hear our prays. Jesus intercede for us for the hopeless. We pray in your name our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
