Hope is the state, which promotes the belief in a good outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. Hope is the "feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best" or the act of "looking forward to something with desire and reasonable confidence" or "feeling that something desired may happen".

Other definitions are "to cherish a desire with anticipation"; "to desire with expectation of obtainment"; or "to expect with confidence".  In the English language the word can be used as either a noun or a verb, although hope as a concept has a similar meaning in either use.

“O Lord, You alone are my hope.” Psalm 71:5 

'For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.' (Isaiah 65:17)


'Heaven is mentioned numerous times in the Bible. Here we shall enumerate at least seven facts about it which are clearly emphasized: It Is an Incentive to Prayer (John 1:12); It Is a Place for Our Treasures (Col. 3:2; Heb. 11:8–10); It Offers Reward for Service (I Pet. 1:7).; It Compensates Being Rejected (Luke 6:22- 23); It Comforts Departing Souls (I Thess. 4:13); It Is Companion to Our Blessed Hope (I Thess. 1:10); It Bids Good-bye to the House of Clay (II Cor. 5:1-2).' (William Ford)

 

Lord, as believers in Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ we come to you today to Pray4America on our knees with all humility acknowledging that we in ourselves have no strength, wisdom or empowerment to carry your banner of righteousness without the indwelling of your Holy Spirit.  (Acts 2:4)

 

 Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.


Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.


Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.











HI I AM PATTY AM GLAD TO MEET AND PRAY WITH EVERYONE...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In  the President’s plan to reduce gun violence the statistics related to school risk and emergency planning mirror the same needs as those of houses of worship.

“A 2010 survey found that while 84 percent of public schools had a written response plan in the event of a shooting, only 52 percent had drilled their students on the plan in the past year. We must ensure that every school has a high-quality plan in place and that students and staff are prepared to follow it.”

In May of this year DHS will work intentionally to address this sobering statistic for schools and houses of worship.  The Department of Education, Justice, Health and Human Services will be releasing model, high-quality emergency management plans for schools, houses of worship, and institutions of higher education, along with best practices for developing these plans and training students and staff to follow them. In addition, the Department of Homeland Security, in coordination with the Department of Justice, will assist interested schools, houses of worship, and institutions of higher education in completing their own security assessments.
