TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. 1Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you.
Jeremiah has the difficult task of trying to comfort a nation brought low by exile. God still means to bless them—but they must be patient.
- Tell of a time your faith was shaken. What happened?
- Where is your faith now?
- Wonder: Has God ever gone back on a promise?
PRAY: Holy Lord, in the darkest of times, your promises remain. Give us hope when we are tempted to despair, and keep the reminders of your mercy ever before us. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
BLESS: May God grant you unshakable faith. Amen.
