The following prayer is written for a female friend.

Please modify it when praying for a male friend.

Lord of Everlasting Love,

I lift up  _______ to you in prayer concerning the situation she is in and the circumstances that surround her.

I ask that you administer strength and wisdom and peace
to her at this moment.

I ask for her protection today as she faces this challenge.

Give her supernatural provision as she moves through this day.

May she rise up above the difficulties as the eagles do.

May she run and not be weary; may she walk and not faint.

Scripture Says:

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31 KJV

The verses before Isaiah 40:31

are also powerful concerning this topic.

See Below.

The first word "He" refers to God.

He giveth power to the faint;
and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary,
and the young men shall utterly fall:

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:29-31 KJV

More Scripture and Bible study

Eagles rise above storms.

Their strong wings take them to the

heights of the heavens.

The strength of our Lord carries us and enables us

to rise above the storms of this life.

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;

My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,

My shield and the


of my salvation,

my stronghold and my refuge;

My Savior, You save me from violence.

I call upon the

Lord, who is worthy to be praised,

And I am saved from my enemies.

2 Samuel 22:2-4 New American Standard 1995 update

I emphasized the word "horn"

in order to explain that when you see that word

in scripture in Psalms or in a prayer,

it usually refers to strength,

and it usually stands for the word "power."

So it means "the power of my salvation."

God is our refuge and strength, a very
present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear, though the earth
should change
And though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; Though its waters roar and foam,
Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. 

Psalm 46:1 New American Standard 1995 update


Note that the word "Selah"


"pause and think about this."

The Name of the Lord is a strong Tower

The righteous run into it and they are saved.

Proverbs 18:10

The following video song is based on this scripture.
