Prayers about strength

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!

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.

When life is starting to get a bit tough, it can be completely natural to reach out for a helping hand. Sometimes speaking to friends or family won’t help or just isn’t an option. Sometimes you need to speak to a higher being in order to seek guidance or assistance. Whether you need a prayer for strength, a prayer for guidance or prayers for strength and guidance, this article will aim to provide you with the information you need. Prayers are a personal form of communication and as such, this article will show you how to best create your own prayers.

Original Prayers

While this article will contain an example of a prayer about strength, it is advised that you alter this to make it more personal to you and your own situation. The reason for this is that sometimes your angels need to see that you’re actually putting in the effort. Obviously they will listen to you one way or the other and will help you when they think you need it most. That’s not to say that a more personal touch won’t go a long way. At the very least it will make you feel a little bit better about yourself and your relationship with your angels. Now let’s take a look at creating your own prayers for strength and guidance.

Prayers about strength or Guidance

When coming up with your prayer for strength or guidance, it’s important to take note of why you need this strength or guidance. Perhaps you’re struggling to find motivation at university or you need guidance on how to deal with a family issue such as an antisocial child. Everyone is going to have a different reason and this is the part that you can really go all out in terms of detail. Tell your angels every aspect of your situation that is troubling you and making your life difficult. The more you can tell them, the easier it will be for them to help you.

An Example Prayer for strength

This is simply an example of a prayer for guidance and strength. You can focus on either elements or both. Again, it does depend on your own individual situation and what you feel would be the best approach. You can simply use this as a template for your prayers about strength or guidance.

Dear Angels, I solemnly reach out to you for aid. I understand that you have already done so much for me but I need your help. I recently lost my job and I’m struggling to stay on top of things. I could really use some of your guidance on how best to find my new path. Please help me to find the strength within myself to tackle this problem head on so that I can go back to living my life. I put my faith in you and your angelic wisdom. Amen!

Final Thoughts

The best advice anyone can give you regarding prayers such as this is to look deep within yourself for what you feel is the best prayer. Guides can only take you so far so when taking the time to decide how to word your prayer, trust your gut instincts. Whatever you come up with, you can use it as a daily prayer for strength if necessary. Don’t overthink whether what you’ve come up with is “good enough”. It’s the thought that counts and your angels will be fully aware of your intentions. So if what you’re saying or thinking in your prayer feels right, then the best thing you can do is just roll with it.
