When a problem wears us down and depletes our energy, prayer refuels our spirits and renews our minds. Developing a consistent habit of prayer can strengthen your faith and foster a deeper connection with the divine. It serves as a valuable opportunity for reflection and can offer solace from the burdens of daily stress and anxiety. 

Starting your mornings with prayer can be a powerful way to connect with God and set a positive tone for the day ahead. Or try praying in the evening so you can go to God with any worries you felt during the day and go to bed with a renewed spirit. No matter when you do it, consistent prayer is a powerful way to stay grounded in your faith and engage with God on a regular basis. 

Whether you engage in a daily prayer practice or you haven’t prayed in a while, God is always ready to listen. So, if you’re unsure where to begin, here are some prayers for any situation.  


1 of 12 Prayer for Healing and Strength

Father, thank you that you sent your Son to bring me life
Life in the fullness
Life for eternity
Thank you that I share in Christ’s resurrection life
That Christ is alive in me
And His Spirit dwells deeply in my being
Right now I receive your healing
I receive the same power that raised Christ from the grave
I receive Your life
I receive Your strength

Thank you that all things are possible for those who believe
Thank you that you are moving in me right now
May I continue to receive from you
This hour and every hour.

2 of 12 Prayer for Strength When Grieving

Lord, at the moment nothing seems to be able to help the loss I feel.
My heart is broken and my spirit mourns.
All I know is that Your grace is sufficient.
This day, this hour
Moment by moment
I choose to lean on You,
For when I am at my weakest Your strength is strongest.
I pour out my grief to You
And praise You that on one glorious day
When all suffering is extinguished and love has conquered
We shall walk together again.

Lord, you know me inside and out.
You know about my pain and distress,
you understand the fears of my heart.
At the cross you endured unabating agony.
You have gone before me into the darkness
And emerged in power and glory.

At this time I lean on You
I draw my strength from Your endless love
And live in Your limitless grace
Trusting in You.
