Renew My Hope O Lord:

Lord it is so easy to look at life circumstances and feel hopeless.  The years seem to have been wasted in so many ways, my heart cries Why? Yet your word assures me that you love me and have a purpose for me. Lord help me to feel and know that love, words in black and white are not enough, I am hungry for you Lord.

O Lord renew my hope in you.

The world around me is so sad and broken and I know that the only thing that can transform the darkness is you working in power to transform this land. Lord I need you to so fill me with your Spirit that I can bring your message to this generation.

O Lord renew my hope in you.

Lord I look at your church and I know that it is not what you meant it to be. Lord your church is either caught up in a focus on experience at the expense of the word or the word at the expense of experience. Lord I know you want a Church that honours both the Word and Spirit. Lord as I look my hope burns low.

O Lord renew my hope in you.

Lord your word says that that in putting our hope in you the God of hope, we can can know joy and peace in believing. Lord help me to become more centered upon you. Lord I want to honour and glorify your name.

O Lord renew my hope in you. Amen

David Rollings was born in Luton in1949 and raised by my Christian parents in the Gospel Standard Strict Baptist denomination( Hyper-Calvinistic} in the sixties I rebelled against this background and got involved in left-wing politics. I became a Christian in 1969 and soon started reading Francis Schaeffer's books and came to embrace a Christian Worldview. I had the privilege of being on the staff of L'Abti Fellowship from1975 - 1979. After L'abri I studied at London School of Theology where I gained my BA.(1983) A few years later I studied for my MA by distance learning with The Nazarene Theological College Manchester (1999) For the last 25 years, I have been an elder of Shoreham-by-Sea Baptist Church. I also regularly attend the Christian Doctrine Study Group of the Tyndale Fellowship.
