No (Part 3)
Help us say “No” to despair.
It’s easy for us to look at the world and
conclude there’s no hope. There are so
many problems, so much evil, and so
much suffering. There are so few people
who try to do anything about any of it.
Don’t let us give up.
Help us instead to live in hope.
Help us to live in the assurance that you
are working your purposes out. Help us to
be among those who do all they can to help
make things better here and now. Help us
to see and celebrate the good—and there
is much of it—that exists in this old world.
