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

The following Prayer for Help will assist you on how to approach God especially in troubling situations.
Since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, the entire human race became imperfect and subjected to a world that is decaying, fallen, and depraved. With this condition and the natural reality, mankind is in the worst situation imaginable making him susceptible to sin, sickness, death, and hell.
God with His redemptive plan provided a way out so that man will be reunited back to Him and His soul will be saved from eternal damnation and all the consequences of sins that come along with it. However, despite the truth that the Son of God, Jesus Christ paid for all the sins of mankind on His death on Calvary’s Cross and triumphed over death in His resurrection, man still lives and exists in this world with his free will and intention to make his own choices for himself.
Even those who have received God’s gift of salvation are not exempted from the troubles and problems pervading in the society nowadays. How much more those who have not heard of the gospel?
Everywhere you turn to, you will see the hopelessness and helplessness of people. You need not look far to find homeless folks on the streets begging bread but addicted to drugs, young teenagers dropping from school and committing fornication then abortion, married couples filing divorce again and again changing spouses so many times, families struggling in debt and financial woes, young people suffering from terminal, chronic or mental diseases that the medical authorities find no cure, children and the young being abused verbally, physically, and sexually by their own parents, degree holders being jobless or underpaid, loved ones in conflict and hurting each other. The list is endless. A prayer to God for help is the answer to these predicaments.
Every person no matter how close to the Lord or how peaceful his life has become definitely needs help. Each individual is confronted with problems albeit daunting or small. There are moments that no matter how supportive our families are or how huge our faith in God is, we are still desperately seeking divine intervention to escape from or end all our suffering.
We may not know of your exact condition and situation right now but just the same, we want to encourage you that help is just a prayer away. You may be praying the same prayer for many years for the salvation of your family or asking God for a spouse or a child. Or you may be believing for new opportunities, open doors, promotion or new contracts in your career or seeking God for a direction in your church or ministry. Perhaps, you are grieving over the death of a loved one or the death of a dream or asking God for help to grant you your own house, car or business to improve your life. There are people who are praying for help for healing of a broken heart or an emotional upheaval and some are in deep bondages and addictions to food, alcohol, drugs, pornography, sex, or negative mindsets, behaviors, and habits.
God can and will help you if you ask Him to. We need to come to God in humility, sincerity, honesty but boldly for all our needs knowing that He will answer according to His Word, will, ways, and His timing. A prayer to God for help is what you exactly need. We know that His word says in Jeremiah 33:3 ‘Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’ So when you cry out to in prayer “God help me” you know that He is there and He will answer you. Take confidence in that!
Let me pray for you now and agree with you in your prayer for help—
Abba Father, you know the real situation of this person who is reading this at this exact time. You have heard his or her prayers in the heavens and we want to agree with him as he steps out in faith believing that you will certainly answer his prayer for help. We recognize that it is only You who can help us in our time of need. We may feel that we are alone, helpless and hopeless in our situation but we choose to believe the truth about You, Your Word, and our situation. Cause this person to bow down on his knees when he is too weak to stand and face all his challenges. Allow him to clasp his hands in prayer instead of struggling and striving to provide a solution to all his problems. Speak to him clearly for the root of his troubles and give him wisdom and discernment to hear, obey and follow You and Your leading for his life. You have heard his incessant cries and the desperation in his soul. All these miracles and answers he has been praying for are known to You even before he utters them or thinks about them. You are fully aware of his need for help so Lord, have Your way in His life. Strengthen him with the power of Your Holy Spirit to overcome hurdles and hindrances and to win successfully in all His battles as he depends and trusts in You completely. We thank You for extending Your mighty hand and imparting to Him your presence and heart. We glorify You for coming to His rescue today. You are indeed the God of YES and Amen and that we affirm that no good thing will You withhold from those whose walk is blameless. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
If you have prayed this prayer to God for help, believe that God is already reaching out to you right from this moment. He is close to the brokenhearted and those in need. He promises in His Word that all those who hope and trust in the Lord will never be disappointed (Romans 10:11) and will never be put to shame (Psalm 25:3).
So, rejoice, take heart and do not be discouraged for God is and always will be on your side. He will never leave you nor forsake you (Joshua 1:5) and He will always be faithful (1 Corinthians 1:9) to us though at times we are faithless.
Please return to this website should you have specific prayer needs or need us to be in agreement with you in your prayers to God for help. We will be happy to pray with you as you seek God’s heart and intentions for your life.
