Child: Father God, thank You so much for the hope that I have in You. Help me put my hope and trust in You every day. Help me remember that when I put my hope in You, You will renew my strength. Help me to trust You to give me everything I need. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Parent: (Pray the following verse as a blessing over your child and yourself.) “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Rom. 15:13 niv).
