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!

But then the value of the community really hit me when I sent a request for people to pray for my daughter when she was in the hospital.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the sign up process like?
Click this Link, which will take you to the sign up page.
Put in your email, name, and preferred format (don’t worry, they can be changed later if they need to be).
You’ll get an email sent to the address you provided. Open it, and click the link.
You’ll go to a confirmation page, where you’ll click to go to payment details.
Enter your payment details in the Amazon Payments page.
You’re in! The next daily prayer will come soon.
Why do I have to go to Amazon to pay for the subscription?
I’m not a savvy enough to handle credit cards on this site, sorry. With that being said, I leave it to experts. With Amazon Payments, you can pay by credit card and you’ll see the same type of checkout process you’ve seen if you’ve ever bought anything from them. It’s a familiar interface, and their payment security is top-notch.
Who handles the email software?
MailChimp. They make sure your email address is secure (i.e. not sold or spammed) and they handle the actual delivery of the emails. They’re great.
What if I want to change my preferences?
There will be a link at the footer of every email where you can changed your preferences if you want. Anything you can’t change there just reply to the email and I’ll handle it in MailChimp.
Every other newsletter out there is littered with advertisements. Will this one have any?
No. The emails look great and are very clean. One image, one memory verse, one prayer, that’s it.
Also on those other lists you’ll get “extra” newsletters twice a week selling books, courses, telling you to sign a petition, support the sponsors, or some other random offer. I respect you and I respect the community this has become. I am absolutely against doing that. Anything I send will be something I’ve created, and it will be valuable and at a steep discount.
Tell me more about the Tithing gift process…
Tithing is something that I choose to do because I feel like it’s the right thing. With that being said, I want it to be at the benefit of committed members who make this group great. I don’t want a situation where a lot of people sign up the day before a tithe, and remove themselves after. It’s not fair, so that’s why you’re only eligible after being a member for 3 months.
I think this daily prayer service and the community around it will help your prayer life so much that you will want to share it with others. But with the tithing gift it gives you more incentive to share the blessing with others because you stand a lot better chance at receiving the tithe gift for your church or charity.
As for the tithe itself: I’ll send a real check via mail anywhere in the world. It will be in U.S. Dollars. I will research the church, ministry, or charity before I send the check. The check will be from my bank, on your behalf, to an organization. Under no circumstances will I send it to an individual. Sorry again to be stern about it, but it’s the best way to prevent someone being fraudulent.
What’s the catch?
Â No catch, I promise. This newsletter makes strengthening your prayer life easy for you. And the members are awesome. But in all honesty, if you aren’t serious about developing your prayer life, you’re not welcome. That’s really the only catch.
I Want To Strengthen My Prayer Life
YOU WILL GET EVEN MORE
I am currently in the brainstorming process of writing a book for the Amazon Kindle. That’s about all I can say right now. However, a way that Amazon promotes new Kindle books is they give the authors the choice of a calendar day where they can make the book FREE. Subscribers to this newsletter will be notified so you can claim your free copy of my Kindle Book on Prayer.
As current newsletter members will tell you, this group is my top priority, even over the site PrayersForStrength.Net. Anything I come up with that I’m satisfied will be helpful to you, I’ll let you know.
P.S. – ONE LAST THING
I don’t know how else to say it, but writing prayers and sending them back to myself completely revived my prayer life, which in turn helped me in lots of ways. I feel closer to God and have been blessed with answered prayers in so many other aspects of my life. I really think that this daily practice of prayer will strengthen your prayer life too.
You’ll get free access to my Kindle Book as soon as it’s released in return for joining the list. You’ll be eligible to possibly “win” a tithe gift from the newsletter for your church. And, if it honestly doesn’t work out or you don’t like it, you can cancel at any time.
I know you’re busy, I’ve been there. I let my prayer life completely dry up before doing anything to help it. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Join the community. You’ll get prayers each day. You’ll establish a routine of prayer that will strengthen your relationship with God. I promise you will be blessed.
I’m convinced. I’m ready to transform my prayer life!
Prayer for Strength
Jehovah Rapha, I come before Your throne of Grace and Mercy, asking that You keep me safely wrapped in Your loving arms, from the harsh, cruel reality of this world.

That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
I pray for revitalizing strength, Dear God, that glorious boost of power to continue on life’s journey. Let it bubble in my soul so that I never give up, so that I never lose hope and faith in You. I trust You, Lord. I lay my life before You, surrendering my body, my heart, my soul and my all to You.

Revive me when I feel as though I can’t go on, pick me up whenever I fall, be by my side whenever I call. Hold me close and never let me go. Be that strength that I crave and yearn for, boost my soul within. In Jesus’ mighty name, all that I pray for shall come to pass. Amen and Amen!
