Have you ever considered that when you pray you are exercising a part of your faith that is really rooted in hope? That’s right, you don’t pray because you believe in prayer, you pray because you believe in God, our hope! On one occasion, Jesus taught a parable to remind us we ought to pray and not lose hope. But his most famous prayer, which is often called the model prayer, is really a prime example of how prayer is rooted in hope. In the Lord’s prayer, we are reminded of why we pray and why we have hope in God.
