Prayer for trust in god

“As a child of God, you ought to expect God to answer your prayers. Do you ask God to do something without adjusting your life to what you are praying? If you are praying for revival, how are you preparing for its coming? If you are praying for forgiveness, are you still living with guilt? If you have asked God to provide for your needs, do you remain worried and anxious? Ask God to increase your faith, and then begin living a life that reflects absolute trust in Him.” Henry Blackaby

Dear intercessors,

We all want God to answer our prayers. We believe in the power of prayer, but when it comes down to our own individual lives and our own problems, we often don’t have the faith to believe God will answer. The times we are living in are difficult. We are often trapped by our unbelief and fear, but God is preparing us for the end-time harvest. He wants to enlarge our territory. He wants to bless us with increase, because His nature is to care and bestow divine favor on us.

We are the ones who limit Him because of our lack of trust and our fear of stepping out in faith. The truth is that the things we do for God should be outside of our own ability and should be trusting in His supernatural ability. When we back away from dependence and trust in God, we are not living by faith. He wants us to trust and obey His Word. He wants us to be strong and courageous. We need to be willing to attempt things big enough that unless God’s steps in, we are sure to fail. This is the kind of trust and dependence He is looking for in our life. We need not be shaken. He can break through every obstacle. He is the God of the impossible!

A Prayer for Trusting God in Hard Times

Lord, I thank You that You are the God of the impossible. You can do anything. I want to trust in Your ability and not my own. Teach me to see difficulties in my life from Your perspective. Help me to focus on You and Your power. I want to be like Joshua and Caleb who believed in a good report and focused on You even in hard circumstances (Numbers 14:7-9). My responsibility is to carefully read, trust, and obey Your Word. Today I bring before You this difficulty in my life . Help me not to fear but to trust You in this situation. I declare my faith in Your ability to fulfill Your promises to me. You will fight for me and win the battles in my life. You are mighty, powerful, righteous and true.  

I have nothing to fear with You on my side. I will be strong and courageous even in hard times. I will not be terrified or discouraged, for the Lord my God will be with me wherever I go (Joshua 1:9). You will never leave me or forsake me (Joshua 1:5). I do not need to figure everything out. You already know the best plan for my life. I will not try any man-made method to do only what You can do. Show me Your supernatural power. Teach me how to walk by faith and pray breakthrough prayers. I choose to have faith in Your ability to break through every obstacle in my life. Just like Joshua, You will give me the land and every place where my feet step (Joshua 1:3). “Through you we push back our enemies; through your name we trample our foes. I do not trust in my bow, my sword does not bring me victory; but you give us victory over our enemies, you put our adversaries to shame. In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name forever” (Psalm 44:5-8).
 

“Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me. Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay. You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand” (Psalm 16:5-11). In Jesus name, amen.“Faith does the impossible because it lets God undertake for us, and nothing is impossible for God. How great – without qualification or limitation – the power of faith is! If doubt can be banished from the heart and unbelief is made a stranger there, what we ask from God will surely come to pass. Prayer throws faith on God and God on the world. Only God can move mountains, but faith and prayer move God.”

Together in the Harvest,

A Prayer for Trusting God in Hard Times

Are you struggling to truly trust God to bless your life? What is your daily focus? Are your eyes focused on the Lord?

We are reminded in Proverbs 3:5 to “trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways (not some) submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”

But sometimes we battle to trust the Lord at his word. We want to take the easy path and do things our way until trouble strikes.

Trust God’s Perfect Timing

Sometimes we want instant answers and solutions. Then we turn back to our old ways. But some solutions require you to grow spiritually. So, Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord. Psalm 27:14

Remain in prayer and continue to grow your faith and trust in the Lord. Let us pray.

Prayer to trust GOD for His Blessings

Father, there are times when sorrow, worry, doubt, fear and anxiety overwhelms me. Thoughts of the future, the past, and whether everything will work out in the end, play over and over in my mind.

I wonder when my dawn will come, and if things will ever get better. Because really, I don’t see a way right now.

These thoughts break my concentration of all that I need to complete within my day. I am distracted from the joy and happiness You promised, that is renewed every morning.

Psalm 18:2  The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Remove all obstacles to my blessings

Tear down those strongholds in my life. Break every evil chain that tries to mislead me.

Help me to be focused on my present, dear Lord, and let worry fall by the wayside.

Let my heart be filled with joyful praises unto You, each and every day.

May I stand strong in faith, knowing Your Promises for me and my life will be fulfilled. For You are the God of truth and the blessings are on their way.

James 1:6  But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.

Psalm 91:2  I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

The Blessings of the Lord

They will rain down upon me, abundantly and overflowing and I will stand in awe of You and praise Your Holy name with thanksgiving in my heart.

Lord, teach me to wait patiently on You as You work things out for me. Give me the strength to trust You in the midst of the storm.

I decree, declare and claim that abundant blessings are going to flood my life. In Jesus mighty name, Amen and Amen!

Psalm 7:1  O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:

Psalm 25:1, 2  Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in you. Let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.

I’m a young Christian, from South Trinidad, seeking the wisdom of the Word and God’s blessings on my life. A journey, that’s just begun, but living to the Glory of God.

God, we put our trust in you and in no one and nothing else…

Job 15:31 NIV

Let him not deceive himself by trusting what is worthless, for he will get nothing in return.

It’s so easy to misplace our trust, God. The truth is, you are the one and only place where we can safely place our trust.

If we allow pride to convince us that we should place our trust in ourselves, we will let ourselves down time and again.

We can trust our loved ones, family, and friends, but when we trust them for our life’s meaning and fulfillment, they will always fail us. They simply aren’t responsible for our joy and should never be idolized that way. They aren’t gods. You are the one true God of the Universe.

We can’t place our trust in money. Money is truly worthless because, in the blink of an eye, our brief time on this planet may come to an end and then not matter how rich we are now on Earth, we would be paupers in eternity if we have not put our trust in you, God.

Help us to see our lives through your eyes, Holy Spirit. Show us where we are still allowing ourselves to be deceived. Give us the courage to choose wisdom and self control over fear and selfish pride. No matter how much it hurts, we want to free ourselves from the tangled mess of the world’s lies. We want to walk in the light of your abundant life!

Now we lift up some prayer requests to you, Father…
