Your Word says the joy of the Lord is my strength. If that’s true, then I need your joy to replace all the bone-tired parts of my mind, body, and soul.

I need your strength to say no when I’m tempted to surrender to harmful things, or when selfishness clings to my clothes and won’t let go. I need your strength to say yes, when cowardice and fear nudge me to deny the convictions of my heart. I need your strength to reach out in love to those both close to me and all around me. When don’t I need your strength, God?

You are my rock, and I run to you today, believing that you will lift up my heavy arms, that you will fuel me for the tasks you’ve given me, and that your joy will completely consume the weakness of my life and make me strong again.

Prayer #7

To be Grateful Lord God, may we be grateful for our lot, and compassionate toward all those who are suffering every kind of distress at this difficult time. May we hold back nothing, and hasten to be the ministers of prayer and mercy, the disciples of Him who went about doing good in times of need. Amen

Prayer #8

Lord, I reach out to you for your guidance. Please show me which way to turn. Calm my anxious thoughts, come speak into my mind. Strengthen me as I falter and feel weary. May I feel strength rising up within my heart.

Bring clarity into my visions and dreams. I trust that you are with me, no matter where I go, Or what I decide to do. You journey with me always. Amen.

Prayer #9

God, so often in different situations I stand and can’t make first steps and decisions I should make. I stuck in such circumstances for a long time, so I ask your encouragement and help. Lord, please encourage me through all my life journey. Please make that I never felt fear or uncertainty.

Let all my decisions will be according to your will. Don’t let me give up in any situation I face, but teach me to find the right way and right decision. Let I always feel your love and grace, your caring hand and encouraging support. Lord, encourage and guide me in all actions I take in my life.

I pray you in the name of Jesus, Amen.

A Prayer for a Friend

Prayer Of Guidance For A Friend In Need

Praying for our friends is one of the most important things we can do. It’s easy to get caught up in our own needs, but it is just as important to pray and intercede for others. It doesn’t matter if our friends are near or far, in our lives or not, they still need our prayers.

Yet, how can we pray for our friends? How do we know what to pray for? In my experience, I ask my friends what they need prayer for and try to glean as many details as possible. This way, I can pray as specifically for them as possible.

When it comes to friends who aren’t currently in my life, I pray over what I knew they were struggling with the last time we talked and for the Lord to guide them. In doing this, I feel closer to the Lord and my friends as I pray.

An Encouraging Prayer for a Friend

Dear Lord,
I pray for my friend right now. I pray that you will help them with the struggles they are going through in this season. For you know exactly what they need in this moment. Draw near to them and let them feel your presence. Open their eyes, ears, and hearts to you.

Help them have the discernment to hear your voice as you lead them in their next steps. Speak to them as they read your word and bring verses of encouragement and comfort to their attention. I pray that you will calm any fear or anxiety they may be feeling. Replace it with the confidence to obey your word and to trust you.

I pray that your guidance will be clear to them from this day forward. In your name, I pray. Amen.

A Prayer for a Friend Who Is Near

Dear Lord,
I pray over my friend right now. I pray that you will lead and guide her on her search for a new job. You know what she needs in hours, salary and benefits.

I pray for your provision in the perfect position for her in your perfect timing. Help her to be patient and not let the enemy discourage her.

Also help me to be as encouraging and supportive as I can possibly be as her friend, in both the ups and downs. In your name, I pray. Amen.

A Prayer for a Friend Who Is Far

Dear Lord,
I pray over my friend right now. I pray that you will help him as he gets settled in his new city. Help him settle into his new job and his new home. Help him learn where things are located.

I pray for your provision in a church family for him and new friends. Ease any nervousness or anxiety and replace these feelings with your peace and comfort. Guide him in his journey from this day forward.

In your name, I pray. Amen.

What the Bible Says about Friendship

Many verses in the Bible talk about friendship including God’s friendship with us, how to choose our friends, and how we should interact with each other.

1. “When I was in my prime, God’s friendship was felt in my home.” Job 29:4 (NLT)

2. “I love them, but they try to bring accusations against me, even as I am praying for them!” Psalm 109:4 (NLT)

3. But I tell you this-though he won’t do it for friendship’s sake, if you keep knocking long enough, he will get up and give you whatever you need because of your shameless persistence. Luke 11:8 (NLT)

4. “When Job prayed for his friends, the LORD restored his fortunes, giving him twice as much as before!” Job 42:10 (NLT)

5. “The godly give good advice to their friends, the wicked lead them astray.” Proverbs 12:26 (NLT)

6. “There are “friends” who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24 (NLT)

7. “Here’s the lesson: Use your worldly resources to benefit others and make friends. Then, when your earthly possessions are gone, they will welcome you to an eternal home.” Luke 16:9 (NLT)

8. “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13 (NLT)

9. “Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God.” 1 John 4:7 (NLT)

10. “Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other.” 1 John 4:11 (NLT)

With each new season, we should ask our friends what they need prayer for. Although we are always praying and petitioning the Lord on behalf of our friends, needs change all the time. I personally update my prayers for my friends at the beginning of each season, Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. During the in-between times, I just add needs and requests to my prayer board.

I often pray for my friends throughout the day. Sometimes this can be easier than all at once when I have lots of prayer requests. I pray while getting ready, while working at my desk, and while making dinner. This helps me feel connected to the Lord and my friends all throughout the day. I usually end my day by once again praying for all my friends at the same time.

Praying and interceding for our friends is one of the most loving things we can do. We are called to love and support each other. Friends in the Lord are friends forever.

10 Prayers For Help In Times of Need

Prayer Of Guidance For A Friend In 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. [1]

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.

Amen  [2]
