PRAYER FOR HOPE, FAITH, PEACE AND STRENGTH

Prayer For Strength and Peace

Prayer is one of our greatest gifts from God. Prayers can be used to heal, protect and encourage Christians in times of tribulation or help others in need. They can be used to serve and obey God.

Prayers can be used in spiritual warfare against the enemy that seeks to destroy us. They can be used to help make difficult decisions and help us fight temptations to sin.

There are countless applications of prayer in a Christian’s life but here we want to focus on prayer for hope and faith, peace and strength, how it can instantly lift you the darkest of places.

The more you open up and share with God the more He will reveal His will for your life

Here you will find  a handful of prayers of hope, faith, strength and peace that have helped me and it is my prayers they will help you start a personal conversation with God.

Short prayer for hope

My Father and My God! I need you! What can I do without you? Where can I go, what can I accomplish? I am genuinely powerless and need your help. Give me hope and faith. Show me the path. Protect and guard me. This prayer I send in the Mighty name of my King of Kings, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Short prayer for strength

My Lord! I’m so weak and discouraged to stand the situation in my life. God, please give me some strength only you have. Make me be able to hold and take all the trials I face in my life. Lord, please never let me stay alone, be always with me. In the name of Jesus. Amen.

Short prayer for peace

God, there is chaos in my heart and my life. I am filled with fear and hesitation. So I really need the peace back to my life. I know, my God, that only you can give it. Please listen to my humbled heart; I so want to find rest in you. In the name of Jesus. Amen.

Short prayer for faith

Dear Lord, help me not to lose faith. Give me the ability to see, hear and trust you. Help me never to lose faith in hard situations of my life. Please let me know that you are always with me, that you care about me, that you support me. Don’t let me hesitate, but make me stay strong in my faith. In the name of Jesus. Amen.

When Jesus walked the Earth He consistently demonstrated a healthy prayer life. In fact, His example is what we should strive for never loosing hope. The night He was taken into custody Jesus went into the Garden of Gethsemane (Matthew 26:36-56) where He told the disciples His “soul was very sorrowful, even unto death” (verse 38).

If anyone in History needed prayer for hope and strength it was Jesus in that moment. Being fully God He knew what was coming and still wanted to work within the will of the Father. So He prayed. We do not know everything He said in that prayer but we do know He returned to the disciples after one hour of praying (verse 40).

And then, went back to pray some more (verse 42).

Prayer for hope and faith from Bible

Here are an example of prayer for hope and faith, which is inspired by the events detailed in Mark 4:35-40:

Father, I want to thank you for all of the blessings you have bestowed upon me, I am not worthy and yet your grace says I am. Your Son Jesus, my Lord and my King, are with me but sometimes Father I feel so alone. Please Father, lift me up in your righteous right hand.

Give me hope that there is light waiting for me, even though I see nothing but darkness. Father, my life is in turmoil, and I am surrounded by stormy waters, and yet all I can think is that Jesus sleeps calmly in the front of the boat. Give me the hope and faith Father that He is with me always.

In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

This is not to say you have to memorize scripture or be an expert in Biblical knowledge to pray to God (although those are both good things). In fact, often the best prayers are when you cry out to God and empty your heart and soul laying your troubles at the foot of the cross.

Pray and  never lose hope

Today most Christians probably spend less than an hour a week praying. Some people are not sure how to pray or what to say… but truthfully prayer is anything else. The more you do it, the better you become.

The more you open up and share with God the more He will reveal His will for your life. When I am feeling down, sad, worn out, stressed or just plain fed up I cry out to God. I say a prayer for hope, faith, peace and strength.

It always helps.

One of the greatest chapters in all of scripture is found in the Psalms of David specifically Psalm 51. In these verses David cries out to God in a desperate plea for help… yet another great example of prayer for hope that God answered in glorious ways.

When you pray to God He promises that He will hear your prayers (1 John 5:14). You just have to ask. Spend more time with God today in prayer, ask for what is on your heart and see how God responds in your life. Be filled with hope over things to come.

Prayers for Peace

Prayer For Strength and Peace

Lord Jesus, we adore your cross which frees us from sin, the origin of every division and evil; we proclaim your resurrection, which ransoms man from the slavery of failure and death; we await your coming in glory,

which will bring to fulfillment your kingdom of justice, joy and peace.

Lord Jesus, by your glorious passion, conquer the hardness of our hearts, imprisoned by hatred and selfishness; by the power of your resurrection, save the victims of injustice and maltreatment from their suffering; by the fidelity of your coming,

confound the culture of death and make the triumph of life shine forth.

Lord Jesus, unite to your cross the sufferings of the many innocent victims: the children, the elderly, and the persecuted Christians; envelop in paschal light those who are deeply wounded: abused persons, deprived of freedom and dignity;

let those who live in uncertainty experience the enduring constancy of yourkingdom: the exiles, refugees, and those who have lost the joy of living.

Lord Jesus,cast forth the shadow of your cross over peoples at war; may they learn the way of reconciliation, dialogue and forgiveness; let the peoples so wearied by bombing experience the joy of your resurrection: raise up Iraq and Syria from devastation; reunite your dispersed children under your gentle kingship:

sustain Christians in the Diaspora and grant them the unity of faith and love.

O VirginMary, Queen of peace, you who stood at the foot of the cross, obtain from your Son pardon for our sins; you who never doubted the victory of his resurrection, sustain our faith and our hope; you who are enthroned as Queen in glory,

teach us the royal road of service and the glory of love.

Amen.

Pope Francis' Prayer for Peace (June 4, 2014)

Lord God ofpeace, hear our prayer!

We havetried so many times and over so many years to resolve our conflicts by our ownpowers and by the force of our arms. How many moments of hostility and darknesshave we experienced; how much blood has been shed; how many lives have beenshattered; how many hopes have been buried… But our efforts have been in vain.

Now, Lord,come to our aid! Grant us peace, teach us peace; guide our steps in the way ofpeace. Open our eyes and our hearts, and give us the courage to say: «Neveragain war!»; «With war everything is lost». Instill in our hearts the courageto take concrete steps to achieve peace.

Lord, God ofAbraham, God of the Prophets, God of Love, you created us and you call us tolive as brothers and sisters.

Give us the strength daily to be instruments ofpeace; enable us to see everyone who crosses our path as our brother or sister.

Make us sensitive to the plea of our citizens who entreat us to turn ourweapons of war into implements of peace, our trepidation into confident trust,and our quarreling into forgiveness.

Keep alivewithin us the flame of hope, so that with patience and perseverance we may optfor dialogue and reconciliation.

In this way may peace triumph at last, and maythe words «division», «hatred» and «war» be banished from the heart of everyman and woman. Lord, defuse the violence of our tongues and our hands.

Renewour hearts and minds, so that the word which always brings us together will be»brother», and our way of life will always be that of: Shalom, Peace, Salaam!

Amen.

Prayer of Pope Benedict XVI for the World Day of Peace (Jan. 1, 2007)

Tothe Queen of Peace, the Mother of Jesus Christ «our peace» (Eph 2:14), Ientrust my urgent prayer for all humanity at the beginning of the year .. .

to which we look with hearts full of hope, notwithstanding thedangers and difficulties that surround us.

May Mary show us, in her Son,the Way of peace, and enlighten our vision, so that we can recognizeChrist's face in the face of every human person, the heart of peace!

Pope John Paul II

O God, Creator of the universe, who extends your paternal concern over every creature and guides the events of history to the goal of salvation, we acknowledge your fatherly love when you break the resistance of mankind and, in a world torn by strife and discord, you make us ready for reconciliation.

Renew for us the wonders of your mercy; send forth your Spirit that he may work in the intimacy of hearts, that enemies may begin to dialogue, that adversaries may shake hands and peoples may encounter one another in harmony.

May all commit themselves to the sincere search for true peace which will extinguish all arguments, for charity which overcomes hatred, for pardon which disarms revenge. 

Prayer of Pope John Paul II for the World Day of Peace (Jan. 1, 2002)

«Salve, Madre santa!»Virgin Daughter of Zion,how deeply must your Mother's heart suffer for this bloodshed! The child you embrace has a name that is dear to the peoples of biblical religion: «Jesus,» which means «God saves.» So the Archangel named him before he was conceived in your womb (cf. Lk 2,21).

In the face of the newborn Messiah, we recognize the face of all your children, who suffer from being despised and exploited. We recognize especially the faces of your children, to whatever race, nation or culture they may belong.

For them, O Mary, for their future, we ask you to move hearts hardened by hatred so that they may open to love and so that revenge may finally give way to forgiveness.

Obtain for us, O Mother, that the truth of this affirmation — No peace without justice, no justice without forgiveness — be engraved on every heart.

Thus the human family will be able to find the true peace, that flows from the union of justice and mercy.

Holy Mother, Mother of the Prince of Peace, help us!

Mother of Humanity and Queen of Peace, pray for us!

Blessed John XXIII

Lord Jesus Christ, who are called the Prince of Peace, who are yourself our peace and reconciliation, who so often said, «Peace to you,» grant us peace. Make all men and women witnesses of truth, justice, and brotherly love.

Banish from their hearts whatever might endanger peace. Enlighten our rulers that they may guarantee and defend the great gift of peace. May all peoples of the earth becomes as brothers and sisters.

May longed-for peace blossom forth and reign always over us all.

Pope Leo XIII

O Lord, you see how everywhere the winds have burst forth, and the sea is convulsed with the great violence of the rising waves. Command, we beseech you who alone are able, both the winds and the sea.

Restore to mankind the true peace of your name, that peace which the world cannot give, and the calm of social harmony.

Under your favor and inspiration may men return to due order, and having overthrown the rule of greed, bring back again as ought to be, the love of God, justice, charity toward neighbor, temperance in all desires. May your kingdom come.

May all recognize that they are subject to you, and must serve you who are truth and salvation; that without you they labor in vain. In your law is reason and fatherly kindness. You are ever at hand with your strength and your copious power to help man to keep it. Life upon earth is a warfare, but you watch the contest and aim man to conquer. The weak you sustain; the victor you crown.

Saint John of the Cross

O blessed Jesus, give me stillness of soul in You. Let your mighty calmness reign in me. Rule me, O King of Gentleness, King of Peace.

Alcuin of York

Christ, why do you allow wars and massacres on earth? By what mysterious judgment do you allow innocent people to be cruelly slaughtered? I cannot know.

I can only find assurance in the promise that your people will find peace in heaven, where no one makes war.

As gold is purified by fire, so you purify souls by these bodily tribulations, making them ready to be received above the stars in your heavenly home.

Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace;Where there is hatred, let me sow charity;Where there is injury, pardon;Where there is error, the truth;Where there is doubt, the faith;Where there is despair, hope;Where there is darkness, light; andWhere there is sadness, joy.

O, Divine Master,Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;To be understood as to understand;To be loved as to love;For it is in giving that we receive;It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

And it is in dying to ourselves that we are born to eternal life.

Amen.

5 Powerful Prayers for Peace Within — Prayers

Prayer For Strength and Peace

Is your heart troubled? Are you feeling the psalmist, who asked his own soul, «Why are you in despair? And why have you become disturbed within me?» One of the hardest parts of knowing peace is understanding how it has nothing to do with control.

If you're having trouble with trust or finding the words to pray above the howling of the scary storms, feel free to offer up these words to the Lord now! Below are 5 of our most favorite prayers to speak when we need God's peace to speak over our heart and mind.

A Prayer for Peace Within

Oh Lord, sometimes my insides feel a battle zone, where missiles are falling too close to home. Other times I'm caught in an endless storm, with thoughts flying control.

Confusion reigns, and defeat creeps in to steal my joy. I need your peace—the deep-down-in-your-heart kind that stays with me day and night and speaks confidently into the wind.

Calm my anxious spirit, Lord; all the attacking «if-onlys» and «what-ifs» fill me with needless worry.

I know that trust is a big part of experiencing peace and that fear has no place in my life. Most of the things I worry about or dread don't even happen. So I'm declaring my trust in you.

I'm releasing the reins of my life again and asking you to take control. I may need to pray this same prayer daily, but I'm tired of the frenzy of life that leaves my schedule and my thoughts without any margin.

I need more of you, Lord, and less of me.

I surrender and admit: I can't control people, plans, or even all my circumstances, but I can yield those things to you, and focus on your goodness.

Thank you today for every good gift you've given, every blessing you've sent, all the forgiveness I did not deserve, and, yes, for every trial you've allowed into my life. You bring good every circumstance if I'll only let go and believe you.

I know that when I pray and give thanks instead of worrying, you have promised that I can experience the kind of peace that passes all understanding. That's your kind of peace, Lord. And it's the kind I crave.

Whenever I’m stressed, anxious, or afraid, help me remember to run to you. You're the only one that can calm my fears and end my fretful behavior.

Whether in trivial or heavy matters, I know you will not only give me peace; Lord, you will be my peace.

And when I draw close to you—in prayer, in reading your Word, in helping another, in taking my mind off myself—you will be there, up close and personal.

I can't handle these times alone, Lord. Will you speak peace and calm my storms, or hold my hand while we walk through them together? Will you bring the reassuring wisdom of those who have come through similar times into my life? Thank you, Lord. I'm trusting you.

In the name of the One who makes the wind and the waves stand still, Amen. ~ Rebecca Barlow Jordan

A Short Prayer for Peace

Lord, I come before you ready to pour out my worries, anxieties and fears at Your feet. I am claiming and declaring Your promises for blessings of peace and strength over my life. Bring a peace into my soul that passes all worldly understanding and make me a light for others to see Your strength.

A Prayer for Peace of Mind

Almighty God, We bless you for our lives, we give you praise for your abundant mercy and grace we receive. We thank you for your faithfulness even though we are not that faithful to you. Lord Jesus, we ask you to give us all around peace in our mind, body, soul and spirit. We want you to heal and remove everything that is causing stress, grief, and sorrow in our lives.

Please guide our path through life and make our enemies be at peace with us. Let your peace reign in our family, at our place of work, businesses and everything we lay our hands on.

Let your angels of peace go ahead of us when we go out and stay by our side when we return. In Jesus' name, Amen.

A Prayer for Missing Peace

Father God, my heart is filled with chaos and confusion. I feel as if I am drowning in my circumstances and my heart is filled with fear and confusion. I really need the strength and peace that only You can give. Right now, I choose to rest in You. In Jesus' name, Amen. ~ Mary Southerland

A Prayer for Peace When You're Overwhelmed

Lord, when my heart is overwhelmed, overwhelm me with Your peace. Lead me to You, my rock. Guide me to Your Word which gives me strength and refuge. Help me not to run to lesser things. Draw me to run to You first. Help me get into the habit of taking my “overwhelmed” and placing it under your will. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. ~ Jennifer Rothschild

A Prayer for the Troubled Heart

Dear God, Our world is hurting and broken. We pray for those who have lost loved ones this week, please comfort them in their grief and loss, cover them with your peace and presence, as only your Spirit can do.

   We know that in whatever we face, you are our Peace and Refuge, a very present help in times of trouble. Thank you that you remind us throughout your Word, we do not face the storms alone, but you are always with us.  Whispering calm.

Speaking peace. Bringing rest to our souls.

We confess our need for you. We ask you to forgive us for trying to figure everything out on our own, for not trusting that you are more than able and powerful to work on our behalf.

Forgive us for picking back up what we already determined to lay down at your feet.

Give us the ability to trust you more, give us a heart that finds rest in your presence, give us the wisdom to seek peace and pursue it, remembering it’s only to be found in you alone.

Thank you that your yoke is easy and your burden is light. Thank you that you care for us. Thank you that the peace of your loving and strong presence guards and protects our hearts and minds in you.

Thank you that we do not have to walk in fear or live in overwhelmed cycles of worry and stress. Thank you for your voice that breaks through the greatest wind and storm swirling around us, and whispers “Peace, be still.

” Thank you that you sent your One and Only Son to set us free. In the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen. ~ Debbie McDaniel

Prayer for Peace – An Ultimate Guide to Peaceful Life

Prayer For Strength and Peace

Prayer for peace means worshiping Allah through intended communication. Muslims use prayers for different purposes and the same way, there are different types of prayers. There are prayers to request for something. We also offer prayers of supplication. People always use prayer to say thanks or to praise Allah. different types of prayers, one is a prayer for peace.

Prayer to Find Peace:

Muslims use peace when they request for peace to their Allah. Through the prayer of peace, Muslims petition for the peace of the world. They may also use peace of prayer for the achievement of personal inner peace as for Muslims, Allah is enough.

“If Allah should aid you, no one can overcome you; but if He should forsake you, who is there that can aid you after Him? And upon Allah let the believers rely”

(Al-Quran 3:160)

World Peace and War:

This world has never a state of complete peace throughout the history. Wars have taken place and some parts of the world are still passing through the period of wars and terror.

The other reason for the wars, terror and absence of complete peace in this world are the misuse of power and misinterpretation of the meaning of word peace.

These reasons always caused and are also causing discomfort in this world of peace.  

Why Prayer is Powerful:

We also use the prayer for peace when we need to get peace of mind and heart, strength and protection. We all need inner peace as inner peace makes us live a care-free life full of happiness. That is why; civilized people and strong believers of Allah always move towards offering the prayer during their times of unrest and trouble.

Daily Prayer for Peace:

Seeing the situation of unrest in the present world, there is a need of daily prayer. Human beings have now become a prey of war and terror. The prayer is a strong part of the religion of Muslims. Each day, believers of Allah offer the prayer for the elimination of the situation of war and unrest in a specific country.  

“Allah places not burden on any soul but to the extent of his strength whatever good it earned is useful for it and whatever bad it earned is a loss for it.

O our Lord! Catch not us if we forget or miss the mark! O our Lord! And place not heavy burden on us as you had placed on those before us.

O our Lord! Put not that burden onus of which we have no strength to bear! And pardon us and forgive and have mercy on us. You are our Master; then help us against the infidels”

Islam a Religion of Peace:

Islam is a religion of peace. Allah does not those who cause terror and unrest for others. Therefore; he asks Muslims to fights such people who cause trouble for others and make this world a hell for others. The Muslims who do not have courage and strength to fight against such people, they use prayer for peace.

“Undoubtedly, Allah bids justice and good doing and giving to kindred and forbids indecency and wicked things and rebellion. He admonishes you that you may be mindful”

(Al-Quran 16:90)

“And fight them until there is no mischief and be there worship of one Allah, then if they desist, there is no violence save against oppressors”

(Al-Quran 2:193).

How Prayer Helps Us:

A peace of prayer makes us feel protected. It plays a major role in maintaining the peace of our mind and heart. When we do not offer prayer, our life seems to be full of troubles. The followers of Islam offer to seek help and guidance from Allah.

A way to Success:

A prayer leads us towards new ways of success and peace as when we pray we get solutions for our problems by the Allah. A prayer widens the paths for us as when we surrender ourselves to Allah, he takes the challenges and makes paths widen for us.
