The title of this book is Faith, Hope, and Prayer. By faith, we are saved. Faith is the force behind the message that gives Christians the hope of a life through prayer that pleases God. The power of faith comes from trusting in the Jesus Christ as the Son of God. It gives us hope of greatness with God and the unlimited possibilities beyond death. Thus, with faith and hope, we have no need to doubt our decisions or worry about life for all is well. For whatsoever we ask in His name by prayer, there is no need to be afraid. With the gift of faith, it is possible to please God and live in hope of eternal life. The transforming force is prayer encouraged by the Holy Spirit who lives within us. So, have faith, always hope for the best, and pray before others to acknowledge Jesus and His sacrifice on the cross for our sins. The message is clear. Think good thoughts and spend quality time with God in prayer. Our faith, hope, and prayer provide the way to live God’s purpose for our existence. Prayer, in particular, keeps the connection open to God for the faith and hope in the Holy Spirit who keeps us moving in God’s direction. Prayer is the means of God’s guidance, love, and mercy. It makes a difference in what we think, how we relate to others, and our desire to please God. There is power in prayer, hope, and faith that opens the door to eternal life in Heaven.
