Prayer For Someone Having A Bad Day

O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us
through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole
human family; take away the arrogance and hatred which
infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us;
unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and
confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in
your good time, all nations and races may serve you in
harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ
our Lord.


The LORD your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.

Dear Heavenly Father;

I am having a bad day. It seems as though nothing is going right. I have so much to do and so many people depending on me. I don't' have time or energy for things to go wrong. I want to ask you to take away my bad days but I realize that if I do that I am missing out on learning to trust in you. Instead, I ask for Your love, guidance and support to help me get through my bad days. Help me to learn to trust in you through the small things so when I have bad days that are bigger I will not just come to you but I will have learned how to trust you.

Lord as creator of all, I am humbled by the love you show me even in the little things. I know that there is nothing in this world that You cannot handle. I am not worthy of Your mercy and grace. Yet, You always make it available to me. I am willing to put aside my need to control and fix things and instead trust You.

I look to You Lord and thank You for being with me and taking care of me. You give me chances to learn to trust you. It isn't easy but You patiently wait on me as I struggle to let go. I feel the warmth of your loving arms embrace me, and the peace You bring to my heart.


God, I just feel down. I'm a bit sad, upset, worried and tired all rolled up into one. I hate feeling like this, but I can't help it. I don't know how to see past these emotions. Show me the way Lord. Show me the way to You. Amen.

God, I need You. This day is horrible. I feel terrible and I can't find any hope. My heart is sinking and I just can't believe how lousy I feel. I just need You to turn this day around. I want to feel better, see beyond this, but I don't know how, so I turn to You. Amen.
