Prayer For Guidance and Strength
Pull yourself together!! That’s what the reflection in the mirror firmly told me as I grasped the bathroom sink. A red, tear-stained face looked back at me in the reflection.
Brokenness in every wrinkle, in every curl of the hair, and color in her eyes. Years of worry and betrayal. It showed.
When you decide you’re done and need God’s strength to carry your through, pull out this encouragement and truth and preach it to your own heart.
Give Me Strength, Lord
Lord, you are Holy above all others, and all of the strength that I need is in your hands.
I am not asking, Lord, that you take this trial away. Instead, I simply ask that Your will be done in my life. Whatever that means, that is what I want.
But I admit that it’s hard, Lord.
Sometimes I feel like I can’t go on. The pain and the fear are too much for me, and I know that I don’t have the strength on my own to get through this.
I know that I can come to you, Jesus, and that you will hear my prayer. I know that it is not your intent to bring me to this point just to leave me in the wilderness alone.
Please, Lord, give me the strength that I need to face today. I don’t have to worry about tomorrow.
If you just give me the strength that I need today that is all I need.
Keep me from sinning during this trial. Instead, help me to keep my eyes on you. You are the Holy Lord, and all of my hope rests in you.
Thank you for hearing my prayer.
In Jesus’ name. Amen. – Pray With Me
What Does The Bible Say About Strength
“The word strength and its derivatives are mentioned over 360 times in the Bible, applying to both natural and supernatural strength. The Greek word katei means “power, strength, might.” In the Bible, strength is often linked to God’s power. Believers are to “be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power” (Ephesians 6:10). The unlimited power of Christ is the source of strength for those who belong to Him.
According to the Bible, what strength we have is not our own. It ultimately comes from God. “Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength . . . but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord” (Jeremiah 9:23–24).” – Got Questions
Bible Verses for Strength in Hard Times
I can do all this through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Isaiah 40:29
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Ephesians 6:10
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Psalm 46:1
God is enough.
Yes, we walk through trials. Yes, life can be very hard. It’s painful. Unfair at times. But let’s remember who we are and who the Author of our life is!!
You can not change anyone else. You are not the Holy Spirit.
Worry and being anxious about a situation is like telling God and everyone around you that you don’t trust God and He isn’t big enough to take care of your life.

What Does God Say About Overcoming Obstacles
Seek emotional healing and maturity in Christ.
God has a whole life of amazing opportunities ahead of you. This thing that has you down shouldn’t be allowed to take over your life.
No matter what we go through, it is worth it. It will have an eternal award if we stay the course – clinging to God. It is not for nothing. It matters.
So we grieve and we cry, then we stand up, putting on the Armor of God and stand firmly in the truth of God preaching to our own hearts and minds.
Reminder: ANYTHING that puts itself before God in your mind is a stronghold in your life. If you think about it or worry about it more than you praise God – than it is a stronghold.
Until we turn from what hinders us in our walk with God, making a 180 turn around and return God to the center of our lives we will not walk in freedom. Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom! 2 Corinthians 3:17
So, let’s stand – putting on the armor of God and using the weapons He has given us. Moving forward with Christ within us and His praises on our lips! Ephesians 6:10-18 & Hebrews 13:15
Bible Verses for Strength
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (NIV)
For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
1 John 4:4 (NIV)
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
Psalm 28:7-8The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
