Supernaturally inspired HOPE: a reflection about the Secret of Prayer

Yesterday I was nearly overwhelmed with a sense of HOPE. I don’t even know what specifically I felt hopeful about, but rather, I felt a clear and powerful presence of GOD around me, and a profound sense of hope that something very good, very wonderful, very excellent would show itself very soon.

This new Hope helped me to understand at a new, deeper level the scripture:

“Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)

Secret of Prayer

There are many secrets about prayer. Many seek to understand the power of prayer and to access it. As I was engulfed by this profound sense of Hope, I realised:

Faith = Hope + Love.

I’ve had an insight into the power of Hope as it relates to Faith. When Hope is full, it brings with it Faith to believe in all that is possible with GOD. Praying with Faith, with Hope and a pervading sense of Love, will bring breakthrough.

I leave you to meditate on this. If you discover you agree, do let me know:)

And if it changes your prayer life or increases breakthrough, let me know…. and any other prayerful person you come across. We need to be praying the Father’s will, the Father’s prayers. Then His kingdom will come!

May I leave you with another Mystery to unravel?

“And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these¬†is¬†love.” (1 Corinthians 13:13)


Shalom and Blessings.
