A prayer for strength and courage in difficult times
“LORD, I’m so grateful for Your eternal and unfailing love. I know You are always with me through both good and hard times (Isaiah 41:10).
Father, I know I can always be honest with You. Because You know my heart like no other (Psalm 44:21).
And honestly… I’m having a really hard time in my life right now. I’m struggling. My foot is slipping (Psalm 94:18). It’s been tough.
LORD, I know in life there will be trials to build my faith (James 1:2). And no matter what, I know You are in control. Everything happens for Your perfect and greater reason.
But LORD, I also humbly pray for Your loving mercy and help in my time of need (Hebrews 4:16). I come to your throne of grace with a heavy heart, which I know You do not turn away (Psalm 51:17).
Please save me, LORD! Lift me up from my troubled waters (Psalm 18:16). My stress is great, my worries run deep.
Give me strength to endure this hardship. Fill me with renewed faith to pull through. Help me rely on the true peace of JESUS (John 14:27).
Show me any hidden sins I need to repent. Guide me down the right path. Calm my heart to lean on Your understanding, not mine (Proverbs 3:5-6).
LORD, I surrender my anxieties to You because I know You care for me like no one else can (1 Peter 5:7).
When Your time is right, I trust You will save me from my sorrows. Your will be done! In the meantime, I will fix my eyes on You and know I am not alone. This pain will pass!
“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for You are with me” (Psalm 23:4). O Lord, comfort me as I hold onto your every word that I know is true.
In JESUS’ mighty name I pray, AMEN.
