A Prayer for Strength is often needed during difficult times. God is always here for us, to give us strength and lift our hearts when all seems hopeless.
“I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens me.”
Most of us realize that our own strength is not always enough to get through some of the situations that this life brings.
At those difficult times, it is wise to call on God for extra strength and for His strength to help sustain you when your own strength fails. (Psalms 28:8 and Isaiah 40:29)

Give Me Strength, Lord
Lord, you are Holy above all others, and all of the strength that I need is in your hands.
I am not asking, Lord, that you take this trial away. Instead, I simply ask that Your will be done in my life. Whatever that means, that is what I want.
But I admit that it’s hard, Lord.
Sometimes I feel like I can’t go on. The pain and the fear are too much for me, and I know that I don’t have the strength on my own to get through this.
I know that I can come to you, Jesus, and that you will hear my prayer. I know that it is not your intent to bring me to this point just to leave me in the wilderness alone.
Please, Lord, give me the strength that I need to face today. I don’t have to worry about tomorrow.
If you just give me the strength that I need today that is all I need.
Keep me from sinning during this trial. Instead, help me to keep my eyes on you. You are the Holy Lord, and all of my hope rests in you.
Thank you for hearing my prayer.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.

For Strength and Wisdom
Thank you, Lord, for being there for me and allowing me to cry out to you in my times of need.
It is amazing to me that the Lord of the Universe would take time to listen to me and to care about what I say.
God, there are things happening around me right now that I do not understand. Some of these things make me feel weak, helpless and afraid.
Even in the midst of this, I know that you are the Lord.
I know that the situation is in Your hand, and I trust You.
I beseech you for strength and for wisdom that I would be able to endure this situation and be able to handle it in a way that would bring glory to Your name.
In Jesus name. Amen.
Don’t ever be ashamed at feeling weak. Remember what the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 12:10:
“Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.”

Prayers for Strength and Courage
Say these prayers when you’re in need of strength and courage. Day to day troubles are no match for the power of the Lord.
To be Grateful
Lord God, may we be grateful for our lot,
and compassionate toward all those who are
suffering every kind of distress at this
May we hold back nothing, and
hasten to be the ministers of prayer and mercy,
like the disciples of Him who went about doing
good in times of need.
Prayer for Guidance and Help
Dear Lord, I am calling upon you today for
your divine guidance and help. I am in crisis
and need a supporting hand to keep me on the
right and just path.
My heart is troubled but I will
strive to keep it set on you, as your infinite wisdom
will show me the right way to a just and right resolution.
Thank you for hearing my prayer and for staying by my side.
For Unfailing Strength
Do not look forward to what may happen
tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares
for you today will take care of you tomorrow and
every day. Either He will shield you from suffering,
or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace, then. Put aside all anxious thoughts and
imaginations, and say continually: “The Lord is my
strength and my shield. My heart has trusted in Him
and I am helped. He is not only with me but in me,
and I in Him.

The Bible is filled with all sorts of prayers. Prayers for strength are very common. When I need strength, I find it helpful to look and see how other great men and women of God prayed for strength.
You may think that there is no hope for you and that God will not give you the strength to get through the situation you are dealing with. Nothing is farther from the truth.
Many of these prayers I have picked are from men that had the same failures and struggles that we all have. If God answered their prayers for strength, then He will answer yours.
7 Prayers For Strength In The BibleSamson’s Prayer For Physical Strength
In this prayer for strength, you will see Samson pray after returning to God after he broke his promise to God while in a relationship with an ungodly woman.
Then Samson prayed to the Lord, “Sovereign Lord, remember me again. O God, please strengthen me just one more time. With one blow let me pay back the Philistines for the loss of my two eyes.” 29 Then Samson put his hands on the two center pillars that held up the temple. Pushing against them with both hands, 30 he prayed, “Let me die with the Philistines.” And the temple crashed down on the Philistine rulers and all the people. So he killed more people when he died than he had during his entire lifetime.
David Prayer For Strength During Difficult Times
David was no stranger to failure. On more than one occasion he did things that were not right. However, by the end of his life, he learned how to pray for strength to overcome.
He ended up being called “a man after God’s own heart.” This prayer for strength is one example of how David learned to receive his strength from God.
A prayer of David.
1 Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer; answer me, for I need your help.2 Protect me, for I am devoted to you. Save me, for I serve you and trust you. You are my God.3 Be merciful to me, O Lord, for I am calling on you constantly.4 Give me happiness, O Lord, for I give myself to you.5 O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.6 Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord; hear my urgent cry.7 I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble, and you will answer me.8 No pagan god is like you, O Lord.None can do what you do!9 All the nations you madewill come and bow before you, Lord;they will praise your holy name.10 For you are great and perform wonderful deeds.You alone are God.11 Teach me your ways, O Lord,that I may live according to your truth!Grant me purity of heart,so that I may honor you.12 With all my heart I will praise you, O Lord my God.I will give glory to your name forever,13 for your love for me is very great.You have rescued me from the depths of death.
14 O God, insolent people rise up against me; a violent gang is trying to kill me. You mean nothing to them.15 But you, O Lord, are a God of compassion and mercy,slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness.16 Look down and have mercy on me. Give your strength to your servant; save me, the son of your servant.17 Send me a sign of your favor. Then those who hate me will be put to shame, for you, O Lord, help and comfort me.
Jeremiah’s Prayer Confession Of God’s Strength And Power
The prophet Jeremiah also called the weeping prophet had the hard task of prophesying the future captivity of the people of God. He needed strength to be able to tell people something that they didn’t want to hear.
In this Bible passage, we see that he focused on God to receive his strength for the task ahead of him.
Jeremiah’s Prayer of Confidence
19 Lord, you are my strength and fortress, my refuge in the day of trouble!Nations from around the world will come to you and say,“Our ancestors left us a foolish heritage, for they worshiped worthless idols.20 Can people make their own gods? These are not real gods at all!”21 The Lord says,“Now I will show them my power;now I will show them my might.At last they will know and understandthat I am the Lord.
Praying For Strength With Music
Not all prayer is done by bowing your head and folding your hands as we see in this prayer for strength from the prophet Habakkuk. Praise, worship, and singing are all forms of prayer as well.
17 Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines;even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren;even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty,18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength! He makes me as surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights.(For the choir director: This prayer is to be accompanied by stringed instruments.)
Prayers For Strength And Faith
The Apostle Paul was no stranger to trials and tribulations. He was beaten, abandoned, stoned, left for dead, shipwrecked and falsely accused yet he still found it within him to pray for the strength of others.
In these prayers for faith and hope, you can find the inner strength to endure and be patient until you have joy.
Paul’s Prayer for Spiritual Growth
14 When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, 15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. 16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.
9 So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. 10 Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.11 We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy, 12 always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light. 13 For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.
Jesus’ Prayer For Strength For A Friend
Jesus tells Simon Peter that he is going to fail and deny Him. Jesus didn’t leave it at that.
He also told Peter in this verse that He had pleaded in prayer for Peter. He said to him that his faith would not fail. Then he told Peter to give what He had received and to strengthen his brothers and sisters in the Lord.
31 “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift each of you like wheat. 32 But I have pleaded in prayer for you, Simon, that your faith should not fail. So when you have repented and turned to me again, strengthen your brothers.”
Daily Strength For Daily Needs
Prayer is simply communicating with God. He is not nearly as concerned with the exact words you say or if you use the right formula. He is more concerned with you being honest and transparent with Him and sharing your hearts concern.
That is true no matter if you are saying prayers for strength, prayers for guidance, or a prayer for comfort. It doesn’t even matter how long your prayer is. Short prayers for strength work too!
God is just waiting for you to ask with a sincere heart for Him to be the center in all aspects of life.
If you have never really made God a part of your life or if you have never really experienced God in a real and personal way, I recommend that you visit Peace With God. They will help you connect with God for the very first time.
We hope that these prayers for strength have been a blessing to you. To find more daily strength for your daily walk with Christ, we suggest you check out our list of Bible verses about strength along with all the other great articles we have about finding strength in God.

Have you ever needed supernatural strength to face a situation head-on, but not known what to pray? God is waiting and wants to offer us strength in time of need. Do not be afraid to pray and ask God for His strength to fall upon you! When you are weak, weary or unready to stand, and unsure of what to ask, pray along with these words!
A Prayer for Strength
Lord, I’m weary. My energy is sagging, and my motivation is lagging. And I am so in need of you. I need your strength and your fresh touch to get back on track again. Your Word says the joy of the Lord is my strength. If that’s true, then I need your joy to replace all the bone-tired parts of my mind, body, and soul.
The pressures of life sometimes push me into a corner, rendering me helpless to move forward. A hundred voices call my name, and I feel paralyzed at times to answer, not knowing where to turn. Lord, help me not to quit, to keep running the race faithfully, and to find strength in that safe, secret place of yours, under the shadow of the Almighty.
I need your strength to say no when I’m tempted to surrender to harmful things, or when selfishness clings to my clothes and won’t let go. I need your strength to say yes, when cowardice and fear nudge me to deny the convictions of my heart. I need your strength to reach out in love to those both close to me and all around me. When don’t I need your strength, God?
You are my rock, and I run to you today, believing that you will lift up my heavy arms, that you will fuel me for the tasks you’ve given me, and that your joy will completely consume the weakness of my life and make me strong again. I don’t want to stay grounded, crippled by limitations and failed attempts. I’m tired of feeble efforts. Lord, I want to mount up with wings like an eagle and not just fly. I want to soar.
Renew my strength, Lord. Fill me with your supernatural power to overcome each obstacle in my path. With my eyes on you, Lord, with you walking beside me, working through me, I can make it. Thank you, Lord!
In Jesus’s name, Amen
A Prayer for Strength and Encouragement
Lord, like David, I need your encouragement in a time of trial and anguish. Thank you that you are always on the throne, always my God, ready to save. Thank you for being the same God to me that you were to David. Thank you for always being near and always rescuing me from my fears and hurts. Lord, help me remember that daybreak might be just ahead, that this trial will not last forever. Fill me with hope that daybreak is coming and that your love will always prevail! In Jesus’ Name, Amen!

A Prayer for Strength to Endure
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!

A week or so ago I put together a massive post with well over a hundred bible verses about money and talked about how we need to make sure that we always put God first in our lives before money – and everything else.
We can easily allow money to become our master, and God can quickly move to the background if we’re not careful.
No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. Matthew 6:24
One thing that occurred to me in the midst of listing all those verses, however, is that I never really touched on a topic that seems to be especially important right now in the midst of a double dip recession when so many people are having a hard time. The idea of looking to God for strength in the midst of hard times.
Bible Verses About Strength
Today I decided to bring together some encouraging and challenging verses talking about how and where we need to find strength in the midst of turbulent times. I hope you find them uplifting as well.

Strength In Christ Our Lord And Savior
As the verses above illustrate, we’re told to call on Jesus Christ, and that he will hear us and give us strength, hope and a grace sufficient to carry us through. He will be our ever present help when we’re in need, and he can give us a peace that passes all understanding. For me that’s extremely encouraging.
