Strength for a Friend

Just like it’s important that we pray for our families, it’s also important that we ask God to protect our friends, particularly when they’re going through trials in their life. They need your love and encouragement and prayer can do that. We don’t know all the challenges our friends may be facing today, but we know that God knows everything. He hears their silence and their prayers. If you want to pray for strength in your friends life, pray this prayer silently or out loud: Heavenly Father, I come before You today knowing that all power is in Your hand.

I know that You are the Lord and that You care for Your people. Right now, my friend is struggling with a difficult trial. I can see his/her strength is faltering, Father, and know that You have all the strength that he/she needs. I pray that You will reach down and touch her/him right now wherever she/he is at this moment. Thank you for being with them in this difficult time. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Power in My State of Powerlessness

God has the power to equip you with strength as you face your biggest challenges. Philippians 2:13 says “For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose.” He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. His power can renew your strength. If you are in a state of powerlessness today and are ready for God to change the space you’re in, pray this prayer silently or out loud: Heavenly Father, I pray for Your strength to be renewed in me, a boost of faith to overcome my fears and a splurge of power in my state of powerlessness. Help me to get back on my feet once again and to run the race that is set before me. Amen.

Today, instead of turning things over in your mind, turn them over to God in prayer. Instead of worrying about your next decision, ask God to lead you and guide you along the way. Nothing’s too big or too small to pray about. God is listening and cares about your life. Trust Him to transform it!
