Prayers for Strength & Hope
Being strong does not mean being big or forceful. It is often the mental strength we need to be able to believe in ourselves and to believe in those around us to make a difference in this world. This type of strength is often described by the word “courage.” With courage and the will to act, we can accomplish all things in Christ’s name.
There are times on our lives where we feel weak. Our own strength isn’t enough. Some things are beyond your direct control. That’s when we need to turn to God. Here is a prayer for strength if you feel in need of God’s help:
Thank you, Lord, for being there for me and allowing me to cry out to you in my times of need.
It is amazing to me that the Lord of the Universe would take time to listen to me and to care about what I say.
God, there are things happening around me right now that I do not understand. Some of these things make me feel weak, helpless and afraid.
Even in the midst of this, I know that you are the Lord.
I know that the situation is in Your hand, and I trust You. I beseech you for strength and for wisdom that I would be able to endure this situation and be able to handle it in a way that would bring glory to Your name.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
If you have a friend who is suffering, you may wish to pray a prayer like this one:
Lord, I come before you today knowing that all power is in Your hand. I know that you are the Lord and that you care for your people.
Right now, my friend is struggling with a difficult trial. I can see her strength is faltering, Lord, and know that you have all of the strength that she needs.
I pray that you will reach down and touch her right now wherever she is at this moment. Let your presence fill the room where she is and let her feel an extra portion of your strength that can help her to get through this day.
She needs you now, Lord, and I thank you in advance for meeting her where she is and shoring up her strength during this difficult time.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
