Prayer: In Times of Despair

Prayer In Times of Despair – When You Desperately Need God’s Help

Everlasting and Eternal Father, I need You everyday, every hour, every minute. Pour out Your unconditional love upon my life. I ask that You bless and protect me today as I go out into this harsh and cruel world.

Psalm 143:4-6 So I am ready to give up. I am in deep despair. I remember the days gone by. Lord, I think about all that you have done, I bring to mind all your deeds. I lift up my hands to you in prayer; like dry ground my soul is thirsty for you.

We are tired and weary

Today, Oh Gentle Lord, let me experience Your holy comforting presence, for I am tired and weary, and my spirit feels weak and filled with despair.

I am trying my best to keep pushing and moving forward, to take the next step. Jehovah Shalom, today I do not feel as witty or bright as most days. I feel like giving up.

Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

Philippians 1:6 And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

I surrender all

I surrender all to You. May I understand Your role for me in this journey, Oh Loving Lord. Help me to see the purpose behind Your plan.

Provide the grace, strength, and faith I need to take the next step to reach my destination. As I seek Your face, Lord guide me that I may walk and not faint.

Lift my weary spirit, so I can find rest and eternal peace within You. May I stand on mountains and walk on the stormy seas.

Give me that unspeakable joy to dance in the rain! In JESUS’ most precious name I pray, AMEN!!

Isaiah 41:13 For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.

Romans 15:13 – Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

  5. Dear Lord,
    Help me for I am in despair. All that is ever precious to me, is always taken from me. I have all my life tried to be good, to do the right thing and now others who have seen something that is in their own mind, seek to utterly destroy take all that is precious to me, away. I know I must try to be strong to keep moving forward, but I falter at this time. Lord I pray for all mercies and that those who seek my destruction, will not succeed. I surrender myself to Thee.CS.

    1. Lord I pray for the right people to come into CS life, to be surrounding by Godly people who pour support and love into this life. I rebuke attacks of the enemy. Holy Spirit let overflow in this life AMEn Paula

  6. My Father Almighty God, forgive me all of my sins. I commit the sins that I repeat over and over. I’m always coming to you to forgive me but after a few days, I can’t control myself to do it over and over again. I don’t love him as he is a married man, and I am a single parent but when I started to talk to him, I always forgot what I should do. Please, help me, I don’t know how to stop it. I don’t know how to say no. I need a companion sometimes. When I’m with him, I feel secure for a while. Forgive me, Lord, may God still blessed me and my family.

Don’t give up David, God has a plan and purpose for your life don’t listen or believe the lies the enemy is telling you God will help you you are forgiven he remembers your sins no more once you have asked for forgiveness and repented just keep holding on and believing in him who is able to aid you in going forward for and through him for his Glory. And don’t forget it is written be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and mind through Christ Jesus

    1. Maria, I pray that today their will be people in your life that will show you that you are not alone. God says that he will never leave you or forsake you and you are not alone….ever. but I know how it is to feel alone and so I will life you up and pray that God will allow those around you to show you that you are not alone and that God has a purpose and plan for your life. You were created with unique gifts. Ask God how he wants you to use them today. If you are depressed reach out to your doctor or get professional help.

  24. Our mother Mary saved my life 21 years ago. I am so ashamed that I went back to my sinful self afterwards. The last seven years have changed me into someone I never thought I could be. Let me just tell you that when you walk with the Lord and feel his passion is the greatest gift that Jesus ever gave me. I understand him now. I was given just a a touch of his pain and passion. I now see the world through different eyes. May I spend the rest of my days for you Jesus.
