Prayer For Endurance And Strength

Lord in heaven, I kneel before your Holy throne, testifying that despite the hard times I am going through, I know that this is your perfect will in my life. It is a season you've prepared for me to teach me how to depend completely on you, to glorify you when things aren't going my way, and to strengthen my walk in faith. My heart is cheerful that after I have persevered and have done your will, I will receive what you have promised. Amen.

Everlasting Father, I bow down before you in these times dominated by fear. Let your love free me from the fear brewing in me; Fear of not trusting you fully. Fear of giving up along the way. Fear of being worthless before you. Help me grow in faith and draw me close to you. You are my only source of endurance and encouragement. I count on you and you alone to overcome this difficult season for you promised to be with me all the way. Amen.

Father, I am in a difficult phase in my life and I need you more and than never. You understand all my struggles and you have reasons why I should go through them. I am weak and on the verge of giving up. Renew my strength and let my faith be unshaken. Let my eyes be blinded from seeing other easier options of handling this and focus on your finished work on the cross. Let my ears deafen from hearing the ridicule from enemies. I look up to you for endurance. Amen.

Faithful God, I count it a blessing when I go through trials and temptations because I know my faith is being tested to produce perseverance. Therefore, let my heart rejoice and put its full trust in you. I am not alone in these tough times; you are with me. I will endure till the end through your grace and your wisdom. Thank you for being my tower of strength. Amen.

Heavenly King, I come before you seeking your strength during these hard times. Renew my strength. Let my heart find comfort in you because you are the giver of patience and endurance. Without you, I will crush. I will give up; I will not reach the finish line. Hold my hand, Lord. Let your grace help me go through this peacefully. I know I will come out victorious because you are with me. Amen.

Almighty God, I would learn that while thou art a forgiving Lord, nature has no mercy on them that break her laws. Forgive me for all my neglect, and help me to see the way in which thou hast through mercy led me. Give me the power to endure and the strength to resist temptation. May I seek to understand thy laws, that I may not fail through ignorance. Amen.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,

As it was in the beginning, is now and will be forever. Amen.

On the Invitatory Bead:

Grant me, O Lord my God, a mind to know you,

A heart to seek you,

Wisdom to find you,

Conduct pleasing to you,

Faithful perseverance in waiting for you,

And a hope of finally embracing you.

Lord, I am weary and don't know when this race will end in my life. I feel like I've been running forever, trying to outrun this trial. Help me to stop trying to outrun my pain but rather run with endurance the race you have set before me. I know that because of you I am ultimately a victor over the trials in my life. I know that nothing in this world can separate me from your steadfast love. Please give me a measure of your love today; give me the strength to endure this trial. Thank you for your love for me that never ends! And thank you for the crown of joy that awaits me forever in your Kingdom!

In Jesus' Name, Amen!
