10 Prayers For Help In Times of Need
Isn’t it true that you spend more time offering prayers for help from God than in any other type of prayer? I know that is the case with me, as much as I do not to admit it. I am so thankful that we have a Heavenly Father who is full of mercy and grace and we can count on the fact that He will always answer our prayers for help.
We can cry out to Him in our time of need and He will rescue us. Though sometimes it seems He will never answer or does not hear, God is still on the throne and available and willing to listen to our prayers for help. Ask for help and then be still and know that He is God and will act in His time.
Listen to the song over there on the right on this page and then take a look at these 10 prayers for help that I have collected.
Gideon’s Prayer for Help – A Sign from the Lord
Judges 6:36-37, 39 “If you will save Israel by my hand, as you have said, 37 behold, I am laying a fleece of wool on the threshing floor.
If there is dew on the fleece alone, and it is dry on all the ground, then I shall know that you will save Israel by my hand, as you have said …let not your anger burn against me; let me speak just once more.
Please let me test just once more with the fleece. Please let it be dry on the fleece only, and on all the ground let there be dew.”
Hannah’s Prayer for Help – To Have a Son
1 Samuel 1:11 “O Lord of hosts, if you will indeed look on the affliction of your servant and remember me and not forget your servant, but will give to your servant a son, then I will give him to the Lord all the days of his life, and no razor shall touch his head.”
Solomon’s Prayer for Help – Wisdom for a new King
1 Kings 3:5-9 “Ask what I shall give you.” 6 And Solomon said, “You have shown great and steadfast love to your servant David my father, because he walked before you in faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart toward you.
And you have kept for him this great and steadfast love and have given him a son to sit on his throne this day. 7 And now, O Lord my God, you have made your servant king in place of David my father, although I am but a little child. I do not know how to go out or come in.8 And your servant is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen, a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for multitude.
9 Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?”
Daniel’s Prayer for Help – Seeking Mercy
Daniel 9:16-19 “O Lord, according to all your righteous acts, let your anger and your wrath turn away from your city Jerusalem, your holy hill, because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and your people have become a byword among all who are around us.
17 Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O Lord, make your face to shine upon your sanctuary, which is desolate. 18 O my God, incline your ear and hear.
Open your eyes and see our desolations, and the city that is called by your name. For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy. 19 O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act.
Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.”
Jonah’s Prayer for Help – From the belly of a fish
Jonah 2:2-9 “I called out to the Lord, my distress,and he answered me; the belly of Sheol I cried,and you heard my voice.
3 For you cast me into the deep,
into the heart of the seas,and the flood surrounded me;all your waves and your billowspassed over me.
4 Then I said, ‘I am driven away
from your sight;yet I shall again lookupon your holy temple.’
5 The waters closed in over me to take my life;
the deep surrounded me;weeds were wrapped about my head
6 at the roots of the mountains.
I went down to the landwhose bars closed upon me forever;yet you brought up my life from the pit,O Lord my God.
7 When my life was fainting away,
I remembered the Lord,and my prayer came to you,into your holy temple.
8 Those who pay regard to vain idols
forsake their hope of steadfast love.
9 But I with the voice of thanksgiving
will sacrifice to you;what I have vowed I will pay.
Salvation belongs to the Lord!”
Paul’s Prayer for Help – Spiritual Strength in the Church at Ephesus
Ephesians 3:14-21 4 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
A Prayer for Help – To Follow the Savior
God of all grace,You have given me a Savior,produce in me a faith to live by him,to make him all my desire,all my hope,
all my glory.
May I enter him as my refuge,build on him as my foundation,walk in him as my way,follow him as my guide,conform to him as my example,receive his instructions as my prophet,rely on his intercession as my high priest,
obey him as my king.May your dear Son preserve me from this present evil world,so that its approval never tempt,nor its disapproval terrify,nor its vices defile,
nor its errors delude me.
May I feel that I am a stranger and a pilgrim on earth,declaring plainly that I seek a country,my title to it becoming daily more clear,my desire for it more perfect,my expectations of it more abundant;and whatsoever I do may it be done
in the Saviour’s name. 
A Prayer for Help – To Be An Instrument of God’s Peace
Lord make me an instrument of your peace,Where there is hatred let me sow love.Where there is injury, pardon.Where there is doubt, faith.Where there is despair, hope.Where there is darkness, light.
And where there is sadness, joy.
O divine master grant that I maynot so much seek to be consoled as to console;to be understood as to understand;To be loved as to loveFor it is in giving that we receive-it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.And it’s in dying that we are born to eternal life.

6 Short and powerful prayers to say for your husband
Praying for your children? Most moms would agree that comes easy. But praying for your husband? Who does that regularly? In our busy lives, husbands sometimes get left behind.
We find the time to pray for our children, and may even participate in mothers’ prayer groups, but praying for our husbands is a different matter. This can make it a struggle when we wake up to how important it is to pray for our spouse.
So here are six short and effective prayers inspired by the letters of Saint Paul that you can try right away, without waiting for Father’s Day.
1. So my husband knows the love of God
“So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.
And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Letter of Saint Paul the Apostle to the Ephesians 3: 17-19).

2. So he can fulfill his vocation as husband
“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself” (Letter of Saint Paul the Apostle to the Ephesians 5: 25-28).
Prayer: Lord, according to Your will, help my husband to draw closer to holiness through the sacrament of our marriage. Fill his heart with Your Love, and help him to fulfill his vocation by following Your path. Amen.

Prayer: Lord, You know what we truly need. I ask You to give my husband the grace to use our resources with wisdom, to be ‘poor in spirit’ (Matthew 5: 3) and to be generous towards those in need. Amen.
5. That he should be the man You called him to be
“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong. Do everything in love” (First letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians 16: 13-14).
Prayer: Lord, I entrust to You all the decisions of my husband, his projects, his worries, and his entire being. Help him to be strong in Your Love and anchored in faith. Give him the strength to be the man that You’ve called him to be: courageous, happy, and generous. Help him to grow in faith, hope, and charity. Amen.

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength.
” (Letter of Saint Paul the Apostle to the Ephesians 1, 16-19).

How to Live With a Difficult Husband Who Treats You Badly – She Blossoms
Your husband is worse than difficult: he treats you badly at home and in public. You can’t just leave your marriage, even if your husband is condescending and treats you dirt. These tips for living in a difficult marriage are for wives who feel helpless, who need to gain strength and power.
I recently returned from a trip to Jamaica, where I spent several days lounging by the pool and gazing at the ocean. A family of five swooped in and took over the deck area next to us.
The kids weren’t a problem – I enjoyed their energy! But the husband wasn’t just difficult, he was abusive. He called his wife names under his breath and spoke to her in a condescending, demeaning, patronizing manner.
His whole attitude and tone of voice was sarcastic, mean, and rude. His wife seemed helpless to defend herself. She was passive, quiet, submissive, and helpless.
What do you do when you live with a difficult husband – a man you wish you never married? I’ll share a few ideas here…but the truth is that you need to look within yourself for the answers. The solution to your marriage problems isn’t here on the internet. It’s in you, in that still small voice that is telling you how to cope with a man who doesn’t respect or honor you, much less love you.
“My husband treats me crap,” says Erika on When Your Husband Says He Hates You. “I have no where to go and no help or money. So I am stuck in this marriage and its starting to really get to me.
My husband has lost my heart that I patched up for him, thinking he was the one who would fix it for me. I feel so much pain and try not to show it.
When I say anything my husband freaks out tells me how ungrateful I am.”
Some wives aren’t just living with difficult husbands. They are in abusive marriages, and they think they have nowhere to go. But this is a lie! It’s a false belief.
The truth is that there IS somewhere to go, and help is out there.
When You’re Living With a Difficult Husband
The most important thing to remember is that you aren’t trapped. You may feel stuck, but you do have options. The options may not be appealing or easy, but it’s possible to leave a bad marriage and start over.
Allow yourself to dream of freedom
You can’t change your husband, but you can start planning a new life. Even if you think there’s no chance in the world this new life is a possibility for you, you can allow yourself to dream. The thing with dreams is that they start with seeds of an idea. Huge achievements and successes have to start somewhere…and they always start with a tiny seed of hope.
Yes, your husband is difficult. Perhaps he treats you crap, Erika’s husband. Maybe your husband isn’t as bad as he was before….or maybe he’s more abusive than he’s ever been.
Read How to Leave Your Husband if You Have No Money for ideas on starting over.
Consider seeking help – with or without your husband
The wife by the pool in Jamaica didn’t defend herself or snap at her husband – her response was to passively treat him kindly, gently, and as though he was actually being nice to her. That was her way of surviving her difficult marriage, of getting through the minutes, hours, and days with a jerk. Living passively with a difficult husband was easier for her than confronting him.
Difficult men aren’t easy to confront. That’s why I suggest talking to a counselor or trusted friend about how to cope with a hard marriage.
Taking some sort of action may help you move forward, even if it’s simply confiding in a friend. If you haven’t told anyone that you’re living in a difficult marriage, feel free to comment below.
You’ll find that the more you talk about it, the easier it’ll get to open up.
Stay connected to people and activities that build you up
When was the last time you talked to your best friend, sister, mom, or favorite coworker? Who do you wish you could re-connect with? What activities make you feel happy, refreshed, energetic, and fulfilled? What about counseling – have you talked to a professional about your marriage? Do you exercise, eat healthy foods, get enough sleep, and love yourself? These may sound useless or meaningless things to do, but they are so important. The healthier you are, the better your life will be.
If you stay connected to people who love and support you, you’re more ly to make healthy decisions for your life. When your husband treats you badly you begin to think you deserve it, that you’re worthless. This is another lie that will drive you into despair. You can break free, but you need to start taking steps – no matter how difficult it is.
Learn ways to become an emotional strong woman in your relationships.
Be honest about living with a husband who treats you badly
Tell the truth. Talk about your marriage with someone. Be honest with yourself, too. Do you really think your husband will change? Can you see yourself spending the rest of your life with a man who treats you badly?
Yes, it would be painful, heartbreaking, hard, and scary to leave him. Maybe it seems impossible. You’ll face financial struggles, social embarrassment, and problems with your children and other family members. But is this really how you want to spend the rest of your life? You can’t change a difficult husband who treats you badly.
May you find strength, courage and faith. I pray for resources and support to pop up in your life in unexpected ways, and for a river of life to pour into your spirit. May you turn your face upward to God, inward to the Holy Spirit, and outward to Jesus. May you be filled with everything you need to take care of yourself and your loved ones.Your thoughts – big and little – are welcome below! Share how you’re doing, what you’re dealing with, and how it feels to live with a difficult husband who treats you so badly.
I read every comment, but don’t worry. I won’t give advice or tell you what to do. It’s your turn to talk.
Powerful Prayers for Marriage and Restoration [Quotes + Verses]
Do you feel your relationship is in trouble? Perhaps your better half has left, your marriage is on the rocks, or you simply feel place with the person you are with. You value the relationship that you have with your husband or wife, and you honor and respect the vows that you took in front of God and witnesses.
Despite the best of intentions, there are times when even the most perfect relationship has problems and issues. It is common for a member of the relationship to run-away from those problems, or refuse to face them by trying to leave the relationship and the home you’ve made together.
Do not despair, there is hope, you just have to find faith and encouragement from our gracious Lord above.
Prayer can repair the most damaged marriage. The power of God can bring two people, who are intended to be together, back into a love filled marriage. Your union will know the love from the blessings of God if you keep your eyes on Him in all things. Through prayer, anything is possible.
God is all-powerful and all-knowing, He can mend any bridges that may have been burned by conflict, clear away any confusion, and give you the power to forgive when needed most. If your relationship is in need of a blessing and you have nowhere to turn, always consider the power of prayer.
God is always there to listen, and his followers on earth are always ready to assist in having your prayer requests heard.
“And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32

May they both embrace the miracle that you desire to do for them, and within their spirits. Amen.
Prayer for Financial Peace In Marriage
I lift up my heart to You today, my precious Lord. Please help us to rely on You more in our marriage when it comes to our finances. We can be easily distracted by the amount of money in our bank account, or even by the jobs we currently have.
Help us not to trust in the matter of money itself, but more importantly, trust in Your economy and Your word. May Your Holy Spirit fill us with wisdom in how to manage our finances, give us generous hearts to give to those in need, and teach us to not worry about money so much.
We pray there would be peace in our marriage, especially over finances, at all times, and in all ways. May Your presence keep us grounded, keep us calm, and keep us in Your will always.
Prayer for Clear Communication in Relationships

I pray that we would live with understanding for what the other person is going through, and that we are thoughtful in our words and actions. Amen.
Bible Verses about Marriage:
“Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” Mark 10:9
“Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins.” 1Peter 4:8
“Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun—all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun.” Ecclesiastes 9:9
Bible Verses About Having Strength During Hard Times
A week or so ago I put together a massive post with well over a hundred bible verses about money and talked about how we need to make sure that we always put God first in our lives before money – and everything else.
We can easily allow money to become our master, and God can quickly move to the background if we’re not careful.
No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. Matthew 6:24
One thing that occurred to me in the midst of listing all those verses, however, is that I never really touched on a topic that seems to be especially important right now in the midst of a double dip recession when so many people are having a hard time. The idea of looking to God for strength in the midst of hard times.

Strength In Christ Our Lord And Savior
As the verses above illustrate, we’re told to call on Jesus Christ, and that he will hear us and give us strength, hope and a grace sufficient to carry us through. He will be our ever present help when we’re in need, and he can give us a peace that passes all understanding. For me that’s extremely encouraging.

Prayer To Find a Husband or Wife (with PDF Prayer Guide)
Are you single and not sure how to pray to get married? Do you need prayer to find a husband or wife–or maybe you need to pray for yourself to find a spouse, but you aren’t sure how to do so?
I do pray for all my readers who are single and desire to be married. But, even more, I desire to equip YOU to pray for your future spouse and marriage with confidence, knowing that God really DOES want you to be married if you want to be.
To assist you in your prayers, I wanted to share a model prayer with you that is much the way I prayed when I was asking God to send me my own husband.
First, rest assured that God’s Word does promise you a spouse of your own if you want one
Not everyone is required to have a spouse. Some people have a special ability to stay single and enjoy it. The apostle Paul had this gift, and he said it allowed him to focus more on the Lord.
However, marriage is still a VERY good thing. Marriage–between one man and one woman–is the very first institution that God created. He set Adam, the first husband, together with Eve, the first wife, in Genesis chapter 2.
Because He said:
… “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him” (Genesis 2:18).
So even though the apostle Paul wrote about his special ability to stay single and enjoy it, he was an unusual case. GOD said at the very beginning that it is not good for man to be alone … so He invented marriage.
Therefore, know this: if you desire to have a husband or wife of your own, it IS God’s will to give you one!
