Prayer for Difficult Situations


Dear Lord,

I come before you today in prayer.

I have decided to lay all my thoughts before you.

By faith, I release all of them to you as I stand transparent in your presence.

Guide my thoughts

as they come tumbling out of me

and as they

find

a resting place at the foot of the cross.


Hear the cries of help among the cries of confusion, frustration, fear, and anxiety.

Make plentiful your thoughts of mercy and compassion toward me.

Make straight my path and guide my steps so that I follow you closely.

Deliver me from this difficult situation.

Teach me how to overcome the temptations that I face.


Enable me to come through this difficult situation

looking like Christ,

being a Champion for Christ,

and

having a testimony of

Victory in Christ.


I dedicate this day - and each day - to you.

Show me how to follow through on my commitment to you.

In the POWERFUL and MIRACULOUS name of Jesus Christ,

I pray,

Amen

David and Goliath


When David was

preparing

for his confrontation with

Goliath the Philistine,

David stirred up his courage

by remembering his former victories.


David fought against

a great bear and a great lion

and he had triumphed.




David said

in 1 Samuel 17:37,


“The Lord, who delivered me

from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear,

He will deliver me

from the hand

of this Philistine.”


As David was

standing

before Goliath,

David stirred up his courage

by speaking strong words about the POWER of God.



We read about this

in

1 Samuel 17:45-47.


Take special note

of verse 47.


45 Then David said to [Goliath] the Philistine,

"You come to me

with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin.


But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts,

the God of the armies of Israel,

whom you have defied.


46 This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand,

and I will strike you and take your head from you.

And this day I will give the carcasses

of the camp of the Philistines

to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth,

that all the earth may know

that there is a God in Israel.


47 Then all this assembly shall know

that the Lord does not save with sword and spear;

for the battle is the Lord’s,

and

He will give you into our hands."



God wants to teach us to stir up

Courage.


Each of us can learn things

from the story of David and Goliath


We too can

prepare and move through

our great difficulties

by remembering our former victories.


In our past,

we have had great bear and great lion difficulties.

God can teach us to use

our previous victories

to help strengthen us now.


We too can

stand

before Goliath

and

stir up our courage

by speaking strong words about

The POWER of God.



The Bible is our Sword of the Spirit.


Let's use its

GREAT POWER

to help us in times of trouble!




Lord, there is no one like you!

    For you are great, and your name is full of power.

Jeremiah 10:6 NLT



God is awesome in his sanctuary.

The God of Israel gives power and strength

to his people.

Praise be to God!

Psalm 68:35 NLT



Prayer for Difficult Situations


Mighty God,

Today when I feel weak, I will remember that you are my strength.

Today, when I feel weak, I will remember the times that I prevailed over difficult bear situations and over difficult lion situations.

I will walk boldly as you guide me through this Goliath difficulty.

I will walk boldly as I face Goliath encounters.

I will remember that you created me to be a Champion for Christ.

I will walk in Power, Love, and a Sound Mind.*

I will intentionally focus on your Miraculous Power and on your LOVE for me.

In JESUS' Mighty NAME,

I PRAY,

Amen

Proverbs 3:5-6 says,

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

And lean not on your own understanding;

6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,

And He shall direct [a]* your paths.


Note:

[a]* In Hebrew

the word in verse 6

translated "direct"

has the idea of "make straight or smooth."



Isaiah 26:7 speaks about our path:


The way of the righteous

[those in right-standing with God—

living in moral and spiritual integrity]

is smooth and level;

O Upright One, make a level path

for the just and

righteous.

Isaiah 26:7 AMP


Short Prayers


Dear God,

Help me to walk by the Word of God

and not by my feelings.


 

Dear God,

I will stir up courage.

Even if I have to

look my Goliath

in the knees,

I will stand Bold and Courageous

for YOU!

Amen



Make Haste


Make Haste - Please Hurry


Sometimes God's plan

includes having to wait on God.

In waiting, we learn patience.


Nevertheless,

it is o.k.

if

- in prayer -

we want to ask God to please hurry.


In fact,

God gives us

those kinds of Scriptures

for us to pray.



Make haste, O God, to deliver me;

make haste to help me. O Lord."

Psalm 70:1 (see also verse 5)


However, we are to always be respectful to God.


Note that Psalm 141

has such a prayer

in verse one

- nevertheless -

verse three reminds us to pray

that we be careful what we say

so we are not complaining and fussing at God.



"Lord, I cry unto thee:

make haste unto me;

give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee. 

2 - Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense;

and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.

3 - Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth;

keep the door of my lips."

Psalm 141:1-3


The video below says:

Lord, I want to mount up

with wings like an eagle and not just fly...

I want to Soar!
