Dear Heavenly Father, As much as we love you, there are those times when we are pulled under in hopelessness. When those dark moments of hopelessness overtake us, remind us to reach out to help others. At the very worst times of our lives, when reaching out to help others is the most difficult thing in the world to do, touch us and inspire us to reach out to help others. In our darkest hours, remind us with your love that we are to bring your light and love into the world of those we touch each day. When we reach out to help others in our hopelessness, others may not respond. Others may reject us at the times of our lives when we need rejection the least. Others may laugh at us and ridicule us when we want to be taken seriously. But let us still reach out to those you have given to us in our lives. Let us reach out to others to show them your love and through your love show them there is hope to change, hope to improve, and hope to get better. Let us reach out to help others and show them there is a light in the darkness, there is a hand of forgiveness for the burdens they bear, and there is a mountain of hope in the emptiness of their hopelessness. All these things we humbly pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen and Amen.
