Prayer For A Friend Going Through Hard Times
It is so hard to watch _________ suffer. It doesn't seem fair for her to have to endure so much pain. Even though I am powerless, I believe that you are powerful and capable of stepping into this situation and completely altering the outcome. In faith, I am responding to the promises in your word that you listen to our prayers and those prayers can make her well. So, I am bringing my friend before you to ask for your healing touch in her life. Thank you for the forgiveness of sin and the promise of eternal healing, but I am asking you to provide healing for her on this side of heaven. Amen.
I pray for my friend right now. I pray that you will help them with the struggles they are going through in this season. For you know exactly what they need in this moment. Draw near to them and let them feel your presence. Open their eyes, ears, and hearts to you. Help them have the discernment to hear your voice as you lead them in their next steps. Speak to them as they read your word and bring verses of encouragement and comfort to their attention. I pray that you will calm any fear or anxiety they may be feeling. Replace it with the confidence to obey your word and to trust you. I pray that your guidance will be clear to them from this day forward. In your name, I pray. Amen.
I treasure my wonderful friends so much. Thank you for their presence in my life. I ask that you would watch over them and lead them into hope and blessing. I trust that you will protect and hold them when life is hard. Lord, help me to be a good friend to them.
Lord, I am facing such hard times, times that have become much more difficult with each passing day, and at times I get quite anxious and afraid, wondering how we are going to manage.
Lord, I know that You have promised to care for all Your children, but there are so many, I don't understand how You can care for us all. Nevertheless, I want to trust You to keep Your Word because You have promised, and You are faithful to keep Your promises.
Thank You, Lord, that You are my light and my salvation. I know that there is nothing to worry about when You are my strength and stay. Lord, I believe that there is nothing that You cannot do. Please help my unbelief Lord Jesus, for I know that when You are the stronghold of my life there is nothing of which to be afraid.
Thank You Lord,
Lord Jesus, I come to You because when I look at the hard times that we are facing, my heart seems to fail as I don't know which way to turn, except to You. Thank You, that You have always been there for me, and thank You that you have always come through with Your help in time of need. Always at the right time and always in the right way.
Keep me from fear of what tomorrow may bring, knowing that I do not need to be afraid or fearful, because You have promised to supply all my needs according to Your riches in mercy.
Thank You, Lord, for Your Word which has so many beautiful truths and wonderful promises. It tells me that You are always there to help when times are hard. Thank You for this scripture from the Bible, which someone gave me today, "do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
Thank You for this lovely truth and for the many promises that You have given to all Your children. May my heart rest in You Lord, and keep me from fear in these difficult times. In Jesus' name I pray,
Loving Lord, You are the One that gives the swallow its nest and paints the wayside flowers with such vibrant colours, and I know that if You care so lovingly for the birds of the air and the flowers of the field, how much more is Your loving-kindness poured out on each of Your children.
Lord, I know this truth and I trust Your Word of truth, but I also know that we who are Your children are to live by faith just like the birds and the flowers, without striving to do everything ourselves, but rather trusting Your provision.
Oh Lord, we are facing many difficulties in these hard times. I know that so many others families are also finding it hard to make ends meet, and at times it is hard to trust You to provide for all our needs. But Lord, please calm my worried thoughts and help me to rest all my family needs in You.
Thank You, Lord, for the way that You have provided all our needs in the past, and give me the grace to lay all my burdens at Your feet, knowing that we are much more precious to You than the birds of the air and the flowers of the field.
Let me trust in You and not be afraid in these hard times. In Jesus' name I pray,
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.
Thank You, Lord, that You are my refuge and my strength in hard times and an ever present helper in times of trouble. Help me to cling to You and this truth from the Bible that You keep bringing to my mind.
I know that You are the only all-powerful God, and that there is nothing that is too difficult in my life for You to deal with, nor is there any obstacle in my path that is so insurmountable that I cannot cross, knowing that You are by my side.
Please give me Your strength to face today's hard and troubled times, with the confidence of knowing that Your strength is made perfect in my weakness. Thank You that my strength comes from You, and that Your grace is sufficient for all the tasks and duties that will cross my daily path, not only for today but for the rest of my journey through life.
Thank You, Father, that Your grace is sufficient. Help me to meditate on this truth every day,
