A Prayer for When I feel like giving up
Emmanuel, Lord God Almighty, I praise Your holy name. Today Lord, things seem ever so gloomy. Nothing is going my way.
I feel so tired, weary and discouraged. The only way I see out of this is to give up totally. Although I still have some hope that this situation is going to turn around, the little that I have fades into the shadows daily.
I welcome the Presence of the Holy Spirit. Let Him be my Comforter and Guide. I acknowledge that I may need to make difficult changes in my life. But, making changes isn’t giving up, doing nothing when I need to, is.
I know that my present struggles does not mean I am a failure, because every great success requires some kind of struggle to get there.
Father, illness, my relationships, my job are all getting the better of me. Give me strength. Give me hope. As I cling to You, please draw near.
Uplift my Spirit, oh Lord. Give me peace. Give me joy. Give me happiness. I need hope. You alone can turn this around, for You are magnificent, and wonderful, and powerful and will never leave me or forsake me.
I am your child and whatever I ask for, I surely will receive. Worry ends where faith begins, and I trust that You, Oh God, will lead me to victory.
Be with me everyday as victory approaches at the Throne of grace and mercy. Suffering, discouragement, doubt and despair will surely leave my mind today, in JESUS’ mighty name, Amen.
