Prayer in times of need

Isn’t it true that you spend more time offering prayers for help from God than in any other type of prayer? I know that is the case with me, as much as I do not like to admit it. I am so thankful that we have a Heavenly Father who is full of mercy and grace and we can count on the fact that He will always answer our prayers for help. We can cry out to Him in our time of need and He will rescue us. Though sometimes it seems like He will never answer or does not hear, God is still on the throne and available and willing to listen to our prayers for help. Ask for help and then be still and know that He is God and will act in His time. Listen to the song over there on the right on this page and then take a look at these 10 prayers for help that I have collected.

Gideon’s Prayer for Help – A Sign from the Lord

Judges 6:36-37, 39  “If you will save Israel by my hand, as you have said, 37 behold, I am laying a fleece of wool on the threshing floor. If there is dew on the fleece alone, and it is dry on all the ground, then I shall know that you will save Israel by my hand, as you have said …let not your anger burn against me; let me speak just once more. Please let me test just once more with the fleece. Please let it be dry on the fleece only, and on all the ground let there be dew.”

Hannah’s Prayer for Help – To Have a Son

1 Samuel 1:11 “O Lord of hosts, if you will indeed look on the affliction of your servant and remember me and not forget your servant, but will give to your servant a son, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall touch his head.”

Solomon’s Prayer for Help – Wisdom for a new King

1 Kings 3:5-9 “Ask what I shall give you.” 6 And Solomon said, “You have shown great and steadfast love to your servant David my father, because he walked before you in faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart toward you. And you have kept for him this great and steadfast love and have given him a son to sit on his throne this day. 7 And now, O Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of David my father, although I am but a little child. I do not know how to go out or come in. 8  And your servant is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen, a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for multitude. 9  Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?”

Daniel’s Prayer for Help – Seeking Mercy

Daniel 9:16-19  “O Lord, according to all your righteous acts, let your anger and your wrath turn away from your city Jerusalem, your holy hill, because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and your people have become a byword among all who are around us. 17 Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O Lord, make your face to shine upon your sanctuary, which is desolate. 18  O my God, incline your ear and hear. Open your eyes and see our desolations, and the city that is called by your name. For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy. 19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act. Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.”

Jonah’s Prayer for Help – From the belly of a fish

Jonah 2:2-9 “I called out to the Lord, out of my distress,
and he answered me;
out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
and you heard my voice.
3  For you cast me into the deep,
into the heart of the seas,
and the flood surrounded me;
all your waves and your billows
passed over me.
4  Then I said, ‘I am driven away
from your sight;
yet I shall again look
upon your holy temple.’
5  The waters closed in over me to take my life;
the deep surrounded me;
weeds were wrapped about my head
6     at the roots of the mountains.
I went down to the land
whose bars closed upon me forever;
yet you brought up my life from the pit,
O Lord my God.
7 When my life was fainting away,
I remembered the Lord,
and my prayer came to you,
into your holy temple.
8  Those who pay regard to vain idols
forsake their hope of steadfast love.
9  But I with the voice of thanksgiving
will sacrifice to you;
what I have vowed I will pay.
Salvation belongs to the Lord!”

Jesus’ Prayer for Help – Take this Cup

Luke 22:42 “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.” 

Paul’s Prayer for Help – Spiritual Strength in the Church at Ephesus

Ephesians 3:14-21  4 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17  so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20  Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21  to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

A Prayer for Help – To Follow the Savior

God of all grace,
You have given me a Savior,
produce in me a faith to live by him,
to make him all my desire,
all my hope,
all my glory.

May I enter him as my refuge,
build on him as my foundation,
walk in him as my way,
follow him as my guide,
conform to him as my example,
receive his instructions as my prophet,
rely on his intercession as my high priest,
obey him as my king.

May your dear Son preserve me from this present evil world,
so that its approval never tempt,
nor its disapproval terrify,
nor its vices defile,
nor its errors delude me.

May I feel that I am a stranger and a pilgrim on earth,
declaring plainly that I seek a country,
my title to it becoming daily more clear,
my desire for it more perfect,
my expectations of it more abundant;
and whatsoever I do may it be done
in the Saviour’s name.

A Prayer for Help – To Be An Instrument of God’s Peace

Lord make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
And where there is sadness, joy.

O divine master grant that I may
not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love
For it is in giving that we receive-
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
And it’s in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen  

A Prayer for Help in a Song – A Soldier’s Prayer

Verse
I know you’re tired,
I know you’re worn, I know you’re torn
You’re losing all your hope
‘Cause you’re a long way from home
Oh, I know you’re worried
I know you’re scared.
I’d like to put my arms around you
And tell you I care.

Chorus
Hope is in Heaven, not far away
Just close your eyes, he hears what you say.
Feel him around you, He’s everywhere
Reachin’ to touch you, Know that he is there.
Deep in the heart of a war,
He hears a Soldier’s Prayer.

Verse 2
Ask and he’ll protect you, guide where you go.
Keep you from evil that tears at your soul
Oh,speak to the Father,say what’s on your mind
It just takes a moment,if you’ll take the time

Chorus
Hope is in Heaven, not far away
Just close your eyes, he hears what you say.
Feel him around you, He’s everywhere
Reachin’ to touch you, Know that he’s there.
Deep in the heart of a war,
He hears a Soldier’s Prayer.

Bridge
Let’s pray for hope,Let’s pray for peace
I pray for you and you pray for me
I’ll pray for heaven to hear what you say
All of God’s children will find out one day
Deep in the heart of a war
God heard a Soldier’s Prayer.

Lord, in every need let me come to You with humble trust saying, “Jesus, help me.”
In all my doubts, perplexities, and temptations, Jesus, help me.
In hours of loneliness, weariness, and trials, Jesus, help me.
In the failure of my plans and hopes; in disappointments, troubles, and sorrows, Jesus, help me.
When others fail me and Your grace alone can assist me, help me.
When I throw myself on Your tender love as a father and savior, Jesus, help me.
When my heart is cast down by failure at seeing no good come from my efforts, Jesus, help me.
When I feel impatient and my cross irritates me, Jesus, help me.
When I am ill and my head and hands cannot work and I am lonely, Jesus, help me.
Always, always, in spite of weakness, falls, and shortcomings of every kind, Jesus, help me and never forsake me.
Amen.

O die ihr glaubt, zehrt nicht euren Besitz untereinander auf nichtige Weise auf, es sei denn, daß es sich um einen Handel in gegenseitigem Einvernehmen handelt. Und tötet euch nicht selbst (gegenseitig). Allah ist gewiß Barmherzig gegen euch. (4:29)

اللّهُمَّ حَوالَيْنا وَلا عَلَيْـنَا، اللّهُمَّ عَلى الآكَـامِ وَالظِّـرابِ، وَبُطُـونِِ الأوْدِيةِ، وَمَنـابِِتِ الشَّجَـرِ

O Allah, let it pass us and not fall upon us, but upon the hills and mountains, and the center of the valleys, and upon the forested lands.

The difference between Standard and Hanafi (Juristic Methods)

The only difference is in the Asr prayer. In the standard method (which is used by Imamas Shafii, Hanbali, and Maliki) the Asr prayer time starts when the shadow of an object is equivalent to its height, whereas in the Hanafi method the Asr prayer time starts when the shadow of an object is twice its height.

Daylight Saving Time

Daylight Saving Time (DST) is the practice of setting the clocks forward one hour from standard time during the summer months, and back again in the fall, in order to make better use of natural strong daylight. IslamicFinder Website is adjusting daylight savings automatically according to your location.

Latitude and Longitude

To calculate the prayer times for a given location, we need to know the latitude and the longitude of your current city or town, along with the local timezone for that location. IslamicFinder is detecting longitude, latitude and timezone of your current city or town automatically. If you face any difference in prayer timings according to your current location then please confirm these latitude and longitude first. You can also use our ‘€˜Change Settings€™’ option to change latitude, longitude and timezone of your current location. You can find this option of ‘Change Settings’ from Top Search bar setting link on right side or from today prayer times card.
