Prayer for trying times

I hope you enjoy this sincere prayer when you’re going through a tough time. Sincerely praying keeps our hearts and arms open to receive what we need.

I was having a friendly conversation with a few friends about the art of conversation and we were talking about the qualities of being a good conversationalist. One of the words that popped into my mind was sincerity. Sincerity is a great quality to have when conversing because it keeps the conversation alive with genuine authenticity.

Masking our true selves isn’t as fun as sharing our heart’s true feelings. We all have a need to express, to be seen, and to be validated for who we are and what we are experiencing. The same principle of sincerity can apply to prayer, because what is prayer, if not a conversation with God/The Divine.

I notice that in times of stress my tendency is to contract, close my heart, and want to turn away from my faith. In times of crisis it is easy to feel abandoned, yet a lot of the time it is us who turn our back from the people and things that would support us.

So how do you stay open and sincere when you’re feeling let down? Here is a simple formula for a sincere prayer that you can use in times of crisis:

Sincere Prayer

Start with sincerely addressing the God of your understanding. Then from the sincerest place in your heart explain your situation, your fears, and your hopes. Affirm that even though you are going through a tough time, you choose to stay open and have faith that all will be well. Acknowledge the presence of God in your life at all times and thank God for always being there. Add anything else that feels right as long as it comes from your heart.

It might sound something like this:

Dear God,
Eventhough I am going through a really tough time right now,
and I have no idea how it will be resolved,
I just wanted to let you know that I am choosing to keep my heart open
because I know you are always with me, guiding, Loving, and protecting me.
I am choosing to be strong because your Love fortifies me and I know that Love is
stronger than fear.
I choose to have faith because I know that with faith and Love all things are possible.
I trust in you that the outcome of this situation will be for the highest good of all involved.
Thank you for your strength, your comfort, and Love.
I welcome your presence in my life.
I Love you.

My hope is that this sincere prayer will help you stay connected to spirit and your heart all the time, not just during times of calm and peace, but through all the many different seasons of your life. May you never feel alone and know just how loved and supported you really are!

Various Prayers for Success 

On this page you’ll find prayers for success in many different scenarios that may impact our lives. Our Lord wants us to be successful in life. He also wishes for the best of us in all things, whether in despair, apprehension, or even in the brightest times of our lives. If we turn our lives over to Him, and if we trust His way, success will follow. When you are seeking answers in life, or simply need a voice to guide you, going to the Lord in prayer is what matters most.

Prayer for a Successful Life

Lord, Your word teaches each of us that it is acceptable to ask for a successful, blessed life. Expand our borders, Precious Lord, and let us find prosperity and success in this gift of life we have been given. You said that You came that we may have life, and that we may have it more abundantly. Please grant us that abundant life, God. Let my life be pleasing to You in all ways, and in all things, so that I will be able to receive the fullness of Your blessings both in this life and in the life to come. Amen.

Prayer for Successful Surgery and Healing

I come to You Lord to ask for a successful surgery, and quick healing for someone I love deeply. As the scriptures say, in Your hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. Hold my loved one and I in Your healing hands, and breath life into our bones. I ask that you give the surgeon a steady hand, and a sound mind from beginning to end. I trust you in all ways, my Lord and Savior.

Prayer for Successful Testing and Exams

Lord Jesus, You know that I am very anxious about the tests and exams that I have to face very soon, and ask that You would calm my anxious, clouded thoughts. Please calm these nerves that I have, and let me rest in You always. I pray that as I enter the exam, that You will fill my heart with perfect peace that only comes from You. Please also give me clarity of thought, and prompt my mind to remember all the things that I have studied. Give me the wisdom and the ability to transfer my thoughts to paper. It’s in Your precious name I pray, amen.

Answered Success Prayer for Passing Exam from Hazen

On December 28, 2016 I sent a prayer petition for my NCLEX RN exam, which was scheduled on January 4, 2017. I had my prayer request. A few days ago, I found out that I passed my exam and I am officially a Registered Nurse! This truly is an answered prayer and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who prayed for me and with me. The power of your prayers and well wishes were so helpful because during my exam, I can’t explain why, but I was so calm and at peace. A few weeks ago it was a different story, I was anxious and just so full of doubt about passing. But with your help through prayers, I had renewed strength and every time I see that someone is praying for me, my confidence grows stronger. All the things that I asked for in my prayer petition came true and it was then, during my exam, that I was experiencing the power of God. I know Divine intervention is the reason why I was able to answer my exam questions and it was that same reason why I passed my exam. My nursing license is indeed a gift from God and I would use this gift righteously to extend help to those who need it. So thank you everyone for your prayers! Your prayers and God’s mercy and love made me a Registered Nurse. This really truly was a miraculous gift sent from up above. 

Prayer for Success in Selling a Home

Father, I know that You are interested in every single area of our lives, and we find that we need to sell our house. At this time, we are placing this need into Your hands, knowing that You have told us to cast ALL our cares upon You.

Lord, we thank You for providing us with this home we currently reside in, but You also know the need to sell our home at this point in time, and we want to place the entire selling process into Your hands, praying that You would be with us to guide during the entire sale. We also ask that you help us find a new home, and to bring it swiftly into our lives as You see fit.

Lord, You also know who it is that needs to move into this house and Lord, we are trusting You to guide the right buyers to see it. We pray that at the right time they may be able to purchase our home as well.

Lord into Your hands we commit our lives and our future in Jesus name, Amen.

Prayer for Success at Work

Heavenly Father, I give You thanks for all my blessings and answered prayers in my life. In the name of Christ Jesus, please guide myself towards the fruition of a successful, and fulfilling workplace. Please guide my heart, and that of my coworkers, to pursue dedication and hard work in Your name. Please watch over the proceedings and tasks on a daily basis. Thank you, Christ Jesus. Amen.

Prayer for Success In Trying Times

Father I have come to a trying time in my life, and I am not sure which direction to go. I know that if I seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, then I will be walking in Your best way for my life, forever and always. Help me Lord to be wise in the decisions I make at this junction, where various doors have seemed to close behind me. Lead me Lord in the direction that You would have me go day in, and day out. Lord I want my life to count, and I want to be successful in making a difference. Take my life Lord, and at this cross-roads I ask that You rearrange my direction as best seems for to.


“Delight thyself also in the Lord, and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” Psalm 37:4

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feed and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33

Another heart breaking tragedy has hit our nation, this time in the form of a massive tornado. While my family and I are thankful that we were not put through such a horrible calamity, we cannot help but shed a tear for all those who are affected by it. We would like to bring comfort to everyone who is affected by the disaster, we cannot be there for them physically. However, this does not mean that there’s nothing we can do for them. The power of prayer is always available to those who seek it.

As they say, you always have something to give. We may think that there is nothing we can offer others, but the truth is, there is always something that we can do to help. How? Pray–yes, we can give them the powerful gift of prayer. The spirit of love we share with them, magnified through prayer, reaches across the miles to comfort and bless all whose lives have been affected by the calamity. “Our Blessed Pope Francis urged us all to Join Hands And Prayer For Our Brothers And Sisters In Oklahoma. The power of prayer should not go overlooked.

I urge you to say this prayer with me:

Compassionate God, source of all comfort,

We pray for the people whose lives have devastated by rain and flood. Bring them comfort, we pray. Protect the vulnerable. Strengthen the weak. Keep at bay the spread of disease. Have mercy on all those working to rescue the stranded and to feed the hungry. And may our response to their suffering be generous and bring you praise.

For we ask it in Jesus Name, Amen.

– Christian Aid

Never forget about the power of prayer. When you feel helpless turn to God in prayer.
