“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
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.”

Heavenly Father I come before You and seek your grace, comfort and love. I have lost faith, hope and trust in you. I am questioning your existence and your purpose in my life. I can not communicate my inner belief to you. My senses and deeper insight are not focusing on you. I am not moved by either your word as contained in the Bible or the creation which is around me. I find no pleasure in reading your word.
I do not enjoy hearing or participating in anything which is done to praise you or your name. Help me to discover you anew. Let me put this prayer in the name of Jesus, who you chose to wash our sins. I do not want to feel guilty for any sin or sins I may have committed. I seek to draw understanding and peace from your presence. I do not hear you call me. I request that you renew my faith and guide me to listen to your voice. I am now deaf to your voice. Help me this day> God Almighty I want to know you,
Return to A Prayer for Hope
Have you ever heard of someone say “just have faith, everything will be OK?” This is often said to comfort and encourage those who are struggling with an illness, facing serious problems, or stressful situations.
We are asked to have faith (trust, confidence, hope) in something far beyond what we see. In such hard times, some of us are often left with only that, just faith. To give you strength in your faith, I have put together this list of 30 Bible verses about faith for you to read and study.
We can grow strong in our faith and trust what God has in store for us. There is a hope in God’s promises, and a light in all of the darkness.
Faith is trusting, believing in complete assurance and being confident in God. Living in faith is showing our service and obedience to God. And He will increase our faith if we continue to ask and draw closer to Him.
May these Bible verses about faith give you a foundation to study upon and grow in your faith. Praying and diving deeply into His word will give your faith a spiritual rejuvenation, plus a strong power of hope for what is to come! God Bless You Abundantly!
