Praying for More Faith
Oh Yahweh, Mighty Everlasting Father, I humbly come before Your throne of grace and mercy, laying down my life before You. I crave You, Lord, You are my everything. Lord, I yearn to be in Your Holy presence, constantly seeking increased faith, Your will, and Your great plans for my life.
Draw me nearer and closer to You daily, as my thirst is quenched by Your springs of living waters. You are my heart’s desire.
Only You can satisfy this burning desire in my heart that cries out Your great name. There is beauty, Oh Heavenly Father, in the abundant joy, in the unconditional love, in the calming peace and the everlasting happiness You bring to my life.
Increase my faith, Adonai. Give me that strength and power to tear down any strongholds in my way, just as the walls of Jericho came crumbling down with that shout of faith.

God Will Never Fail Me
I believe Your very Word, Oh merciful Lord. For You have never failed me and I can guarantee You won’t start now. You are the God of truth and Your love for me endures forever.
Knowing how much You love me, to give up Your Son to save a lowly sinner such as myself, I trust You. And, though I don’t deserve it, You allowed it to happen so that I can be saved to be promoted to eternal life in Your heavenly kingdom.

Father God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth, the sustainer of all life, I come to You today acknowledging my need for a stronger faith. As much as I love and trust You, I find myself battling unbelief and doubt during challenging times.
Lord, I wish to be like Abraham, who hoped against hope because he was convinced that what You had promised, You were also able to deliver.
I know that my spiritual journey is a marathon, not a sprint. Strengthen my faith so that I can withstand the pressures of life and not falter in my spiritual walk. May my faith be the foundation that withstands the storms that come my way.

Seeking Faith Through the Word of God
Father, I recognize that faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the Word of God. Often, I have neglected to spend quality time in Your Word, which is a treasure trove of wisdom and guidance. Forgive me, Lord, for seeking wisdom from worldly sources while keeping Your Holy Scriptures at arm’s length.
May my heart yearn for Your Word daily, absorbing it like a sponge, that it may fill all the dry areas of doubt and confusion. As I commit to diving deeper into the Scriptures, allow Your truth to saturate my thoughts, conversations, and actions, increasing my faith day by day.
Romans 10:17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

Walking by Faith, Not by Sight
Oh Loving Father, the world is filled with circumstances that aim to weaken my faith. Temptations, failures, and even successes can sometimes make me rely more on my understanding than on Your guidance. Teach me, Lord, to walk by faith and not by sight, especially when the way is murky and Your will seems unclear.
You are my Light and Salvation; the Giver of Wisdom and Insight. As I face the challenges of today and the uncertainties of tomorrow, let me walk confidently in the power of Your promises, knowing that You are with me every step of the way, steering my course as I yield to Your guidance.

Prayer – Lord, Direct My Steps
You hold me in the palm of Your hands, even at my weakest and darkest hour. As You allow my faith to increase daily, walk with me throughout life’s journey. Show me the steps You want me to take. Push me in the right direction.
Wherever You lead, I will follow. Even when I don’t understand, I will trust in You.
As I step forth upon the waters, take me deeper than my feet could ever wander. And my faith will be made stronger in the presence of You, my beautiful Lord and Savior, Amen.
