Life can be difficult. There are times when we all feel overwhelmed and lost. In these difficult times, it’s critical to find strength and hope. These prayers will help you do just that. They are a source of comfort and support, and will remind you that you are not alone.
According to kenboa.org, for many, prayer is a way to express their feelings and thoughts to God or another higher power. Prayer can also be seen as a way to ask for guidance or strength in times of need. There are many, many types of prayers, but all share the same goal of seeking help. Some prayers for strength are specific and direct, while others are more general in nature.
Here are some of them
Prayer for Strength
Almighty Father, I am Your humble servant, I come before You today in need of strength. Strength to boldly face the challenges that lay ahead of me. Strength to overcome the obstacles that are in my path. Strength to persevere through the trials that life is sure to bring my way. I ask for Your strength, Lord, because I know that without You, I can do nothing. But with You, all things are possible. Thank You, My King, for always being there for me when I need You. In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!
Prayer for Guidance
Almighty and ever-living God, in your providence you have appointed various orders of ministers to serve your people. Pour out your Holy Spirit upon those who have been called to the sacred order of deacons. Grant that they may hold fast to the sure confession of faith, execute their ministry with eagerness, and preaching the Gospel be a declaration of the Good News of salvation. Through Jesus Christ our patient Lord, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Prayer for Forgiveness
Merciful Father, I come before You today in need of forgiveness. I have sinned against You and broken Your laws. I know that my disobedience has caused me to be separated from You, and I am truly sorry. Heavenly Father, I want to turn away from my sinful ways and return to You. I ask that You would forgive me and give me the strength to obey You. I also ask that You would help me to forgive those who have sinned against me. Thank You for Your forgiveness, and thank You for Your love. Amen.
Prayer for Peace of Mind
Dear God, I come to You in search of peace. The chaos of this world has left me feeling overwhelmed and stressed. I long for the peace that only comes from You. Help me to quiet my mind and find solace in Your presence. Provision me with Your peace that passes all understanding, that I might face each day with courage and hope. Amen.
Prayer for Comfort and Healing
Lord, I come to You in need of comfort and healing. Life has been difficult lately, and I am feeling overwhelmed and broken. I need Your comfort and peace. I ask that You would heal my wounds and give me the strength to face each day. Thank You, My King, for being a loving and compassionate God. Amen.
Prayer for Protection
Loving Father, I come to You in need of protection. There are forces at work in this world that I do not understand, and I am feeling vulnerable and scared. I beg that You would surround me with Your love and protection. Keep me safe from harm, so that I may live in peace and confidence. Amen.
Prayer for Strength in Times of Grief
Dear God, I come to You in times of grief and sorrow. I am feeling lost and empty after the death of a loved one. Please provide me the strength to face each day, and help me to find comfort in Your love. Amen.
Prayer for Hope
“Dear God, please give me the hope and faith to see me through this difficult time. Help me to believe that things will get better and that you are with me every step of the way. Amen.”
Prayer for assistance to the Spirit of Creation, God of All,
I don’t understand you, and I’m not even sure whether I believe in you, but this is my plea to you, whatever you are. I figure that if you are as powerful as people say you are, you won’t be offended if I make mistakes.
My life feels chaotic, and nothing is going smoothly. Some of it I did, some of it was done to me, and some of it just occurred. Other times I feel anger, and at times I feel shame. And sometimes, to be really honest, I feel absolutely nothing. I could use assistance during these difficult times, and I am willing to accept assistance from any source concerned with my wellness. Please place decent, kind individuals in my path. Please, God, grant me the knowledge to make wise decisions. This is my plea for help. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Prayer after loss to the Creator of everything
I require some consolation at the moment. My heart is in pieces. I have lost a family member. My life feels odd and turned upside down. I feel as though my remarks lack force, and I have lost confidence. On occasion, I awaken with a fleeting sense of joy at being alive, but an overwhelming sense of guilt always follows this, and I descend once again. Sorrow has become a constant companion, even a friend. My prayer to you is that you would assist me in allowing sadness to do its work, and that when it is complete, the wound of loss will heal. I hope that one day I will be able to welcome these memories without this level of sadness. To greet thoughts of my beloved with a modest grin and affection. Please God, assist my healing. Amen
