Prayer For Bravery

Lord, thank you for the wonderful things you have done in my life. You have granted me many opportunities, loving people, good health, and your salvation. In these opportunities, Lord, I often have ideas and opinions for improvement, but I am afraid to express them. I am afraid to challenge the status quo. Lord, I am praying for your help in speaking up courageously. Please also grant me the strength to positively challenge tradition and make improvements to the lives of others. Amen.

Dear Lord, you have taught us to do the right thing at all times. You have taught us not to be afraid of those who doubt you and shame us. It is difficult to do the right thing and to be ethical when everybody else thinks you are wrong. I am praying that you pour upon me your gift of courage, that I may not fear the disapproval or shame that comes with doing the right thing. Help my heart to rejoice and find happiness in being kind and doing good things for others. Amen.

Jesus, you successfully led your disciples and helped them understand what your mission was. In return, they followed you and preached with you because they trusted you. As a leader, I am praying for the courage that will help me guide people to achieve certain goals. Give me the confidence to press forward even when I face opposition or failure. I pray that I stand firm, as you did, and have the courage to make positive changes in this world. I trust and believe in you. Amen.

Christ our Father, there are many times that this world presents obstacles in our way. Sometimes I feel like giving up. Help me be calm, rational, and carefully consider all consequences before I make any decision. Help me overcome my fear of making the wrong decision. Bless me with the strength to move forward and make a decision. I pray for your courage, now and forever. Amen.

Loving Jesus, I believe in you. I believe in the Holy Spirit, who you sent to us to be our helper. Bless me with your Spirit so I am full of self-control, love, courage, and power. I pray that I always walk with this Spirit wherever I go and in whatever I do. Use your Spirit to wash the distractions and troubling thoughts from my mind. Make me calm and confident in my ability to succeed. I pray that I will be filled with the spirit of courage. Amen.

Dear Lord, you are glorified and your name is above all names. You know the desires of my heart, you know my intentions and goals. Please be with me today as I go about my day. Give me the courage to work through obstacles to accomplish everything I have planned. Protect me in my encounters and bring me back home safely at the end of the day for a restful night. Amen.

Heavenly Father, you were there for Jacob when he sought help from you. Jacob feared to face his brother Esau, who was looking for him with hundreds of men beside him. I know you are ever-powerful and faithful. You blessed Jacob with courage. You promised to do good things for us, Lord, and I am here praying to you about my fears. I am afraid of many things and people because I am not sure how they will perceive me. Lord, give me the courage that you gave Jacob. Assure me even if I am treated unkindly, that I am a child of God. Let my heart understand that the hate of others is insignificant compared to the love I have from you. Amen.

Dear God, our Lord, you have commanded us to be courageous and full of strength. You tell us to neither be terrified nor be discouraged, for wherever we go, you are with us. Help me to hold onto your word and be calm in your promise. Make my faith in you continue to grow so I cannot be shaken by any situation. I need courage, I need the strength. I need you, God. Amen.
