Difficult times come, it’s a fact of life. Have you been in a situation where you not only need strength, but you need hope?
When you are close to rock bottom, there is a sinking feeling that you’ll never overcome the trials at your feet. This feeling can be awful. It can also have long lasting consequences, as it is tempting to blame God for leaving you to deal with this alone.
But the truth is God didn’t leave you, and the Bible says he won’t tempt you more than you can stand. However, I know it can be tempting to turn your back on him when it seems like the entire world is crashing down around you. Resist the temptation to run away from God, especially when you need him most. Here are 3 prayers that you can pray for strength and hope.
Holy and gracious God,
Thank you for the fact that no matter where I am, you are with me. When I make decisions, you are there to comfort me.
God I pray that today you be with me each second. I am struggling with everything right now, and I pray that you give me the hope to go on. Please give me hope and purpose so I have a goal to achieve.
Please help me as I uncover your will for my life, and give me the strength to take steps in the right direction. I know you have a purpose for me. Reveal it to me and help me to have the strength required to overcome my shortfalls and insecurities.
Please be with me and help me.
In your Son’s holy and precious name I pray, Amen.
Dear loving and gracious Father,
You have given me blessings beyond compare. Thank you for the blessings you have freely given me.
Father I’m struggling with where I am in life. I face trials and tribulations that I’m not sure I can overcome alone. Please Lord help me to know that you are with me and are faithful in helping me overcome these obstacles.
I pray Father that you give me a small glimmer of hope that everything will turn out ok. Please give me a sign that you are in charge and let it sink down and touch my heart so I know you won’t leave me. Please bless me and keep me.
In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
God, Creator, Teacher, Healer,
You have guided me through every step I’ve taken. You’ve been with me through my victories and defeats, my successes and failures.
Please be with me God as I feel worried and broken down by the tasks that lie ahead of me. I am lacking confidence to continue and am hesitant to reach out for help. Me strengthen me, and give me the power to pick myself off the floor and move forward.
Father please give me hope, as I feel alone and powerless. Please show me what lies beyond what I can see. Allow me to have the faith and strength to achieve what I don’t yet know.
In Jesus’ name I pray these things, Amen.
