Prayers for difficult times
When things don’t go our way, prayer can help us see the big picture and be comforted by God’s love. Whether you need comfort, help, or guidance, or are worried or grieving, we hope you find these prayers encouraging.
Prayers for comfort
I feel alone, beaten up, tears fill my eyes, I toss and turn at night, and words can’t express the pain in my heart. I pray to you because I am desperate for assistance. I need to know that you care, that you love me.
Prayer for help
Please, God, place good people, kind people, along my path. This is my cry to you. In Jesus’ name, Amen. I could use some help through these difficult times, and I am open to receiving help from any source that has my best interests at heart.
Prayer after loss
Some days I wake up and feel happy to be alive for a brief moment, but this is always followed by a deep guilt for having those thoughts, and I sink again. Please God, help me heal.
Prayers for guidance
In Jesus’ name, I ask for your guidance in directing my path; give me faith that following your lead is always the best course of action; and may I be like the well-watered garden that thrives because its roots are firmly planted in your love.
Prayers for the worried
Can you lead me to make decisions that will help me, can you guide and help me from the soles of my feet to the top of my head? Everything feels so big, so overwhelming, so insurmountable.
Prayers in uncertain times
I ask you to guide and protect me in Jesus’ name because I can no longer pretend I can help myself alone. Please help me recognize and accept divine help when I see it today. I am exhausted, stressed, and overwhelmed, even though I have only just woken up.
