Prayers for Hope



Inspirational Prayers

for Hope



We may feel attacked, hindered, and restrained;

We may feel discouraged, depressed, and defeated


But

Paul tells us in Ephesians 6:10 KJV,


"Be strong in the Lord
and in the power of his might."


Then Paul gives us secrets

to winning our battles

by explaining the supernatural pieces of armor

that we need to wear every day.


I encourage you to stand up

and

put on those pieces of armor

afresh and anew.

First Prayer for Hope


Almighty God,

You are my hope, and you are my strength.

You are guiding me toward your will, and I will follow you.

I will walk in amazing faith this day.

I will lift up truth, and I will pull down strongholds.

I will declare that my enemies will not triumph over me.

Sickness will not triumph over me.

Financial lack will not triumph over me.

And ______________ will not triumph over me.
                (fill in the blank)

I was created to be powerful. I was created to be victorious.

Today I will walk in the power, purpose, and peace of Jesus Christ.

Amen

 Prayers for Hope

Dear Heavenly Father,

I am facing a situation that appears hopeless.

Emotions like disappointment, confusion, and depression want to attach themselves to me.

Reach out to me and bring me thoughts of a good future. I will welcome them.

Lord, show me new possibilities.

Help me to more clearly see my gifts and talents. Help me to more clearly see the good things in my life.

Father God, help me to believe that I am precious and valuable to you. 

Thank you that you have reminded me that I was born for a great purpose.

I will choose to believe that you are bringing hope into my heart this day, so that I will have more hope tonight when I go to bed than when I got up this morning.

Father God, I will realize that hope has a name:

Jesus.

Amen
