Prayer For Encouragement And Hope
Jesus, my Savior, I humble myself in Your presence because You are worthy. You are worthy of all my praise because You made way for me to be called a child a God. Forgive me for placing myself above You. Come and take Your rightful place on the throne of my life. Grant me hope and joy as I live my life surrendered to Your lordship. Amen.
Lord, my Shield, the enemy's attack is on all sides, and I have used all my strength. You alone are my Shield and Defender, so I cry out to You for help. I stand behind my shield of faith, pressing on to gain ground because You are my Shield. My strength comes from knowing You are with me, and You are diverting all the enemy's arrows sent my way. Thank you, Lord Jesus! Amen.
God of Light, the psalmist wrote, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for You are with me. Thank you for walking with me through every valley I endured. I pray as I tread through this current valley, that You would once again be my Light in the darkness. Thank you that Your presence is a constant source of encouragement. Amen.
Lord of Unfailing Love, do not fail me now! I come before You burdened by the pressures of life. Ever since I started my relationship with You, Your love has encouraged me. It has been a compass to bring me back to You when I have strayed far from Your path. Your love has called me out of many pits. I ask that You would wrap me in it once again as You encourage me and keep me close. Amen.
Lord, Chain-Breaker, You are worthy of all my praise. I stand before You freed from the chains of my past, which were dragging me to death. Thank you for setting me free. Lord, I have once again entangled myself in problems, and I am in bondage to them. My Chain-breaker, please give me the strength I need to break free. Amen.
Lord of Power and Love, I am Your child, and I sing Your praises because of Your faithfulness to me. Your love has and will sustain me. Your power has saved me from my sins and will save me from my troubles. I pray for my current situation and ask that You would be the light that goes before me and the guard behind me. You have given me strength and courage many times, please do it again! Amen.
God of Enduring Faithfulness, thank you for always answering when I call. The answer may be no, but it proves You are listening and You care. I come to You because I need encouragement that only comes from sitting at Your feet. I bow myself before You and shelter in Your unfailing love. As I pause in Your presence, I hope to feel Your faithful love and protection over me and draw from it what I need to move forward. Amen.
Dear Heavenly Father, I do trust You, but at times I wonder if my faith in You is sufficient. Praise God that my hope does not reply on my sufficiency but on Yours. My hope of eternal life in heaven with You does not depend on my righteousness or good
works, but on You and on Your everlasting faithfulness, Your omnipotent strength and Your finished work of Calvary's cross.
What I wonderful God You are, and I am beginning to understand what it means that I must nor rely on my own strength, for my strength will fail, but I am to rely on Your everlasting Strength and Your eternal faithfulness to finish the good work that You started in me the moment that I trusted You as Saviour.
Help me to abide in You and to trust in the promises that You have given to all Your children in the Bible, for Your Word is truth and cannot be broken. Oh thank You, Lord, that You chose to save all who trust in Jesus Christ, and have promised that even if my faith grows weak or fails, You will not forsake me, but have promised to remain faithful to finish the good work that You have started in me. Thank You Father,
