Prayer For Strength And Comfort
O Lord, I give you my worries and concerns and I ask for your guidance. You see it all, the outer circumstances, the inner turmoil. I know that you understand my life, that sometimes my heart weighs heavy with trouble. Right now I lay all these things before you. I breathe in, safe in the knowledge that I am held by grace. I breathe out, knowing that I am held secure in your arms. And I wait on you. For you are all truth, you are overflowing love, you are a beacon of hope and a fortress of faith. Lord, I choose to be attentive to your voice. May I be alert to your Spirit's guiding as I journey onwards with you. I love you Father. Amen.
Lord, at the moment nothing seems to be able to help the loss I feel. My heart is broken and my spirit mourns. All I know is that Your grace is sufficient. This day, this hour Moment by moment I choose to lean on You, For when I am at my weakest Your strength is strongest. I pour out my grief to You And praise You that on one glorious day When all suffering is extinguished and love has conquered We shall walk together again.
Make me strong in heart, let your life flow through me. Bring a blessing of freedom and grace. I come to the foot of the cross, once again. I lay down the burdens that I feel, And give you my troubles, my fears and my hurts. I wait upon you. I rest in your arms. As I kneel in the sanctuary, oh my Lord and my King, I will open my heart up to you. Here in this sacred moment, I wait, To hear your voice, to know your word. I ask for your wisdom to fill my mind and thoughts, And rest in your power.
Father, thank you that you sent your Son to bring me life Life in the fullness Life for eternity Thank you that I share in Christ's resurrection life That Christ is alive in me And His Spirit dwells deeply in my being Right now I receive your healing I receive the same power that raised Christ from the grave I receive Your life I receive Your strength Thank you that all things are possible for those who believe Thank you that you are moving in me right now May I continue to receive from you This hour and every hour. Amen.
You are my strength Jesus. Help me to carry the responsibilities with grace. Help me to lift each worry or burden to You. Help me to defend truth, justice and righteousness in my practice. You are my strength Jesus. Thank you.
Lord, you know me inside and out. You know about my pain and distress, you understand the fears of my heart. At the cross you endured unabating agony. You have gone before me into the darkness And emerged in power and glory. At this time I lean on You I draw my strength from Your endless love And live in Your limitless grace Trusting in You.
I come before you and ask for Your strength within me. A strength not of the world but of Your kingdom. To refrain from judgement and feast on love. To push out greed and hold tight to joy. To dispel pride and rise with humility. To quell anger and rest in self control. To shun greed and rest in giving. To turn from power and embrace service. To let go of resentment and rest in peace. To push through fear and walk forwards in grace. To run with faith, soar with forgiveness, And allow your eternal strength to abide with me. Amen.
God be surrounding you, his peace be yours, Amidst this great storm you're safe in his arms. God be above you, his lighthouse will shine, Rays of pure kingdom light gently down. God be behind you, with waves that will cleanse, Sweeping away hurt to new life again. God be beneath you, your bare feet will tread Upon softest grace sand wherever you're led. God be beside you, you walk hand in hand, Filling your mind with new colours and plans. God be within you, restoring your soul, With breezes of healing and eternities gold.
