Praying for Courage
Messiah, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, you know what’s hidden in my heart. You know my thoughts and my motives. You know when I am weak and feel discouraged.
I submit my prayers to you, Oh God, on this beautiful day. Give me courage, strength and confidence to face the trials and temptations that may lay ahead.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.
Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
Give me strength
I give my life to you today, Oh Father, just take control and guide me along the way.
There are times I may think that I do not have the strength to defeat the enemy as he attacks me in my daily life. Restore my courage and faith in you, Oh King of Heaven.
Help me to be confident both in myself as well as in You, for I know I will mount up on wings like an eagle and sore high with You on the throne.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.
Isaiah 40:31 but those who wait upon the shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint.
Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.”
Praying for confidence
And even as I ask for confidence Dear Lord, help me to remain humble in all that I do.
Give me the courage to face my fears, to stand up for myself, to fight for what I believe in, to bless others and to minister your Word.
Let the fire that burns within me touch the lives of others and manifest your love and grace to all. In Jesus’ Holy Name, AMEN!!!
Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
