Prayer for a friend strength

We live in a world full of troubling times. We live in a world where hopes and aspirations are hardly realized. There are plenty of pressure and people facing various disappointments. As believers we also sometimes become disappointed because we are the same human, we live in the same world and we are also caught up in some of these challenges. At such times like these arises a need for prayer of encouragement and strength for myself or a friend, prayer for strength for a friend.

Let’s pray these prayers, particularly if you are presently going through any difficult time or perhaps your friend or loved one is:

  • Prayer of encouragement
  • Prayer of encouragement to start the day
  • Prayer of encouragement and strength for myself
  • Prayer for strength for a friend

Prayer of encouragement

God, so often in different situations I stand and can’t make first steps and decisions I should make. I stuck in such circumstances for a long time, so I ask your encouragement and help. Lord, please encourage me through all my life journey. Please make that I never felt fear or uncertainty. Let all my decisions will be according to your will. Don’t let me give up in any situation I face, but teach me to find the right way and right decision. Let I always feel your love and grace, your caring hand and encouraging support. Lord, encourage and guide me in all actions I take in my life. I pray you in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Prayer of encouragement to start the day

Lord, give me a peace of mind to meet all that the next day will bring to me. Let me fully surrender to your will. God, please come and support me at any time of the day. Whatever news I receive during this day, teach me to accept them with a calm soul and firm conviction that for all your will is. In all my words and deeds, guide my thoughts and feelings. In all unforeseen circumstances, do not let me forget that everything is sent by you, my Lord. Teach me to act directly and reasonably with each member of my family, not disturbing and not upsetting anyone. Lord, give me the power to relieve the weariness of the coming day and all the events during the day. Lead my will and teach me to pray, believe, hope, tolerate, forgive and love. Lord, I need your encouragement in all I do. I pray you in the name of Jesus, Amen.

Prayer of encouragement and strength for myself

Father of all comfort and Grace, you are the divine source of encouragement and courage, I come to you today in absolute confidence and trust in your word, I ask for strength and courage to stand in this trying time and to come out victorious.

I draw strength and comfort in my inner man by your Holy Spirit. I decree and declare that I am strengthened spiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally. My faith shall not grow cold, I shall finish strong, and I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus. I am not of them that quit and lose out, I will trust you all, for I know that my victory is assured in Christ. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Prayer for strength for a friend

Father, I pray for a friend going through trying times. Lord, please strengthen and encourage his/her heart. God, show him/her that is always near and caring for him/her, not allowing to stay alone in the difficult situation. Let’s his/her faith in Christ don’t shake, show him/her that these trials are for a good purpose and one day he/she come out of difficult situation giving you all the glory and praise. I pray through Christ Jesus our Lord, Amen.

Why we need prayer of encouragement?

To encourage is to draw strength during crises. This prayer we say asking for strength during crises or just in difficult daily situations. Sometimes we pray these prayers not only for ourselves but also for our friends and loved ones who are in the crisis or passing difficult times.

John 16:33 says, “These things I have spoken unto you that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulations; but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world”. Peace does not suggest absence of war or crisis, it means finding strength and stability in the midst of them.

Psalm 61:1-2 also says, “Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I”. Bible made it clear that we won’t go through life without challenges. As believers, we should pray a prayer of encouragement and strength in such times. Only in trusting God and praying strength will be born in our hearts to hold on till victory will come.

When you go through times that appears as if the integrity of God’s word challenged, loved ones leave and relationships threaten to break down, the Savior is a prayer away. When we pray a prayer of encouragement and strength, He does not come with explanations. He comes with His very presence, releasing peace into your heart. James 5:13 “is any afflicted among you, let him pray.”

Do you remember hymn “What a friend we have in Jesus”? He is a friend both in the good and bad times. Don’t lose your peace, refuse to bear needless pains, call on Him in prayers, and He will encourage and strengthen you and your friend’s heart. Peace will come.

A friend of mine has been going through a rough time recently, trying to “find himself,” among other things, and he has asked me to pray for him. Actually he’s asked me to pray for him several times within a few week time span. I thought this would be worthy of sharing on the blog because of the significance of what this stands for.

Praying is one of the most intimate acts you can perform. It is direct communication with God. It’s intimate, private, and direct. There have been many moments of my life that I’ve stopped and prayed during, and most of them have defined the person I’ve become. If you reflect on your life, you’ve probably noticed the same thing. We tend to pray when our emotions are at their peak intensity. This can be caused by agony or ecstasy, but the times in life that we pray are typically at a peak of an emotion.

I point this out because the last two times I was asked to pray for a friend I did so, but not with the agony that I know he was going through. He and I had engaged in deep conversation in several areas, most of which came back to the current hardship he was in. Everything related to this somehow. But when I prayed for him, I treated it like a “to-do” list. I prayed “MY” prayer, “MY” way, mentioned him, and moved on.

I will never argue that a prayer for another person is considered bad. I’m not ashamed of myself for praying a bad prayer. However, when I thought twice about this I was really convicted. The highest and lowest points of my entire life elicited prayers from me, but even though I knew in the back of my mind the same thing was happening with my friend, I treated it as a nonchalant chore.

You’ve probably been there too, right?

We are conditioned as humans to think our needs are more important than others. Call it survival or what you would like, but that’s our tendency. It’s difficult to empathize with someone as they go through a defining hardship when we’ve never experienced it. Today I challenge myself and you to do better.

When you pray, take an extra moment to get in the mindset you would be in if you were in the same situation. Approach God as if you were at a defining moment in your life and you were asking for help. It is very likely that someone who has humbled themselves enough to ask you to pray for them are in such a situation. Here is my prayer for strength for a friend:

Gracious and loving almighty father,

Thank you for the blessings you have so freely poured out on me and my friends. We thank you that you are so generous to us and expect so little in return.

I come to you with a request today for . He has confided in me about the state of his marriage. God I appreciate the man he is and how difficult this time can be for him and his family. I pray Lord that you help fill his heart and his marriage with love and joy so it overflows. Please guide them through the decision making process and direct them in a way that honors you and is best for them. I pray father that you be with them each moment of the day, protecting them from harmful words and thoughts. Please father fix broken hearts and fill voids for them, such that they grow closer together than ever. I pray father that you help both of them to not waver in faith, but be focused on you and your glory.

In Christ’s name I pray, Amen.

Prayers for friends aren’t a chore. They’re a defining moment. Treat them that way when you ask Almighty God to help.

Christian Prayers for Strength oftentimes serve as Healing Prayers.  The succeeding Prayer for Strength will enable you to find the strength and guidance that you need in these trying times.

No matter how strong or successful we are, there will come a point that our strength will be depleted and we will be compelled to lay down our loads and rely on someone or something to hold on to. Everyday, we are confronted with cares of unimaginable proportions and it does not take a genius to recognize that somehow, something is missing, something is wrong.

We have the propensity to ignore our condition thinking that life just have to be this way – responsibilities, obligations, duties, whatever term you have for it are but a normal part of life so we have to live by it. Burdens continue to pile up, problems grow worse, and anxieties tend to double until you find yourself unable to function, no remaining energy to go on. The Scriptures is replete with Prayer for Strength verses and they will help you to retain or regain your physical or spiritual vitality, strength and courage.

“The Lord is my strength, my shield. My heart was sure of him, I have been helped and my heart exults, with my song I give him thanks.” ~ (Psalms 28:7)

“But those who hope in Yahweh will renew their strength. They will soar as with eagle’s wings; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and never tire.” ~ (Isaiah 40:31)

“He is the God who girds me with strength and prepares my ways.” ~ (Psalms 18:33)

“The Lord is my strength, my shield. My heart was sure of him, I have been helped and my heart exults, with my song I give him thanks.” ~ (Psalms 28:7)

Are you in this situation? Are you feeling disheartened, weak, helpless, and in turmoil? You will never find strength apart from its real Source. Strength and comfort are in Him alone. God is now calling on you to turn over all your anxieties on Him because He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7) If you have received God’s invitation for salvation, He is indwelling in you. All the power and glory of God is locked inside your flesh, in your spirit when you opened your heart to Jesus, His Son.

God can and will re-energize, revitalize, rehabilitate, and revive your tired body, restless soul, and weary spirit. If you are now ready for God to do just that, follow this on how to pray —

“Heavenly Father, I am now here distraught and utterly hopeless. I confess all my sins to You, heal my spirit, soul, and body. I commit to completely turn away from a lifestyle of sin and allow You to have full control of my life. I have been so tired and heavily laden, please give me rest. I resign from running the affairs of my life and let You reign in all aspects. Remove all the worries, anxieties, fears, and trepidations in my mind, will, emotions, and heart. Lift off all the shock, fear, trauma, terror, grief, pain, and shame off my spirit. I pray for divine order in my entire being and everything concerning me – my family, studies, career, ministry, relationships, finances, plans, desires, and dreams. I want Your best for my life. I desire Your perfect will in all areas of my life, not Your permissive will. Teach me to depend solely on You for strength, not on people or things. Strengthen also my inner man and spirit to withstand all the temptations of the wicked one. I bless You Lord at all times. Your praise will always be in my mouth. I ask for the joy of the Lord to be my strength. (Nehemiah 8:10) Let there be light in my life. I believe that You hear this prayer for healing. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.”

You may have uttered many prayers before. Jesus said in His Word for us come to Him all of us who are tired and burdened and He will give us rest. (Matthew 11:28) When you prayed the above Christian prayer, be assured that God has already lifted all the tiredness and weakness from you. Why don’t you lie down now in bed and ponder on this short devotional healing prayer and totally rest in Him? You may play a soft instrumental music and listen to God’s voice. He is asking you now to be in a position of rest for you to receive supernatural strength in hard times to enable you to go on with your days. Every time you feel weak, just say this Prayer for Strength and rest assured, you will find energy and enablement that you need.

My best friend in the
world, I know he means much
more to You.
I want so much to help him, but
this is something he has to do.
Lord I lift my friend up to You.

There’s a way that seems so right to him.
But You know where that leads.
He’s becoming a puppet of the world.
Too blind to see the strings.
And Lord I lift my friend up to You.

Lord I lift my friend to You.
I’ve done all that I know to do.
I lift my friend, to You.

Сложные обстоятельства
уже омрачены его точку зрения.
Лорд поднимаю мой друг к Тебе.

Я боюсь, что у меня не будет слова
что ему нужно услышать.
Я молюсь за твоей мудрости, о Боже.
И сердце, искреннее.

тебе.

Лорд поднимаю мой друг к Тебе.

Мой лучший друг в
мир, я знаю, что он много значит
для Вас больше.
Я хочу так много, чтобы помочь ему, но
это то, что он должен сделать.
Лорд поднимаю мой друг к Тебе.

Там есть путь, который кажется таким правильным для него.
Но Вы знаете, где это приводит.
Он становится марионеткой мира.
Слишком слеп, чтобы видеть струны.
И Господь Я поднимаю мой друг к Тебе.

Лорд поднимаю мой друг к Тебе.
Я сделал все, что я знаю, что делать.
Я поднимаю мой друг, к Тебе.
