Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me.”
There are many times during our Christian experience when we are going through the challenges of life, or the enemy is coming in like a flood, and we need to find strength in God.
A prayer for strength is often needed during difficult times. God is always here for us, to give us strength and lift our hearts when all seems hopeless.
Most of us realize that our own strength is not always enough to get through some of the situations that this life brings.
At those difficult times, it is wise to call on God for extra strength and for His strength to help sustain you when your own strength fails.
Try these three powerful prayers for strength when you need it. Believe me, eventually you will.
When You Doubt
Dear God, I need Your strength today and every day. I can do nothing without you, but I can do all things only through Jesus Christ, Who will strengthen me.
I need this strength every day. You can uphold me by Your righteous right hand, and only by Your Spirit can I endure.
I depend on You every day, and this is what You really desire, anyway. Help us, Your beloved children, to focus on You, the object of our strength and the source of our salvation.
We as the children of God are not our own source of strength. Thankfully, You, God, are the source of our strength and can keep us going in ways that we cannot of ourselves.
Your word says in Psalm 28:8 “The Lord is the strength of his people; he is the saving refuge of his anointed.”
When my own strength fails, Yours takes over, and I thank You for having access to You through Jesus Christ, in Whose precious name I pray. Amen.
When You Fear
Dear Lord, I do tend to fear. Please forgive me when I do. I also am dismayed at times by the heavy burdens of life, so thank You for this reminder of Yours from Your Word, that I have no reason to fear or be dismayed.
I recognize that I am my own worst enemy. Help me to know that You are my God and You have promised to strengthen me and help me.
By Your right hand, the hand of sovereignty and strength, You uphold me, for which I am eternally thankful. I pray this to You, oh Great Father, through Your Son’s awesome name, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Second Corinthians 12:9-10 reminds me that “Your grace is sufficient for me, for your power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
In Jesus Christ’s great name I pray. Amen.
When You’re Weak
Father God, when I am weak, You are strong, and Your grace is enough for me, as Your power is perfected in my weakness.
So, when I am feeling especially weak, I must realize only then am I strong because of You, for I have nothing to boast about except my weakness, but that’s how Christ’s power can rest upon me.
Your word says in Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” I will lean on this word.
Only in You can I endure because I have no chance without You, and in the mighty name of the King of kings and Lord of lords, Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
