    'In future' means from now on. There is no real need for 'in the future'.

    More natural would be: I hope/would like to be a doctor.

    In most of them "hope" would be a better choice.

    I hope my wish to become a doctor will come true soon.
    I would like/prefer to be/stay at home during the party.
    God will fulfil your wishes soon.
    God will answer your prayers soon!
    I hope you'll be in the final.

    I don't know what you mean by "May I wish to be with you any more?"
