I Ask God For Strength And He Gave Me Courage

Asking God for strength is easy. We ask him for strength all the time, but what happens when we ask him for courage?

When I was a kid, I saw a story of a father and son who were in the mountains and got lost. The boy kept asking his dad if he was okay, but the father kept saying that he wasn’t okay. Finally, the boy asked his dad why he wasn’t okay and what could they do to fix it? The father said that they could pray together to God and ask him for help. So they prayed together and then when they woke up in the morning, they found themselves near their car! How did this happen? It seems like it would have taken them hours or days to walk back down from where they were lost. But instead, it took them just one night! In this article you’ll read I asked god for strength and he gave me my wife.

So how did this happen? Well, you can probably guess that it was because God answered their prayers! He gave them strength when they asked him for it by helping them get back down safely! We’ll also learn how do you ask for strength from God.

A Prayer in the Storm

When the storms rage around me, I can always run to You and rest, Lord. In turbulent times, in trials and temptations, in weakness or in fear, You are my strength, and Your hiding place is secure. Bless You, Lord, for being my refuge. – by Rebecca Barlow Jordan

More Strength, Less Stress

Heavenly Father, You are my Strong Tower, my Deliverer, and my Shelter. I’m running to You now. Please renew my strength. Please lead me with Your Holy Spirit and guide my day. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. – by Gwen Smith, Girlfriends in God

Prayer for Strength in Adversity

Lord, I pray not for tranquility, nor that my tribulations may cease; I pray for your spirit and your love, that you grant me strength and grace to overcome adversity; through Jesus Christ. Amen. 

For Guidance and Strength

Dear Lord, I am calling upon you today for your divine guidance and help. I am in crisis and need a supporting hand to keep me on the right and just path. My heart is troubled but I will strive to keep it set on you, as your infinite wisdom will show me the right way to a just and right resolution. Thank you for hearing my prayer and for staying by my side. Amen.

When I’m Overwhelmed

Lord, You have shown me that falling is not always failing. You pick me up and rescue me when I am overwhelmed. You are Jehovah-sabaoth, the Lord of hosts, a tower of strength for me. I have no other place to run to, no other shelter in which to hide. I depend on You, Lord. – by Rebecca Barlow Jordan

A Prayer for God’s Power

Oh, God, today help us to live with faith. May it not be said of us that our faith is too small, or to help us to look to You, to see in You, Your infinite power. Your infinite glory, and greatness, and grander, and majesty, Your infinite ability. Keep us, oh God, from trusting in our power. Help us to trust in Your power. Help us to pray accordingly as we pray, even right now. God, help us to realize we’re talking to You, the king of the universe that has all authority and all power, who’s sovereignly ruling and reigning over all things. Help us not to underestimate You in our praying. As we pray for others, as we serve others, help us to do that cognizant of Your power.

“We don’t want to lead our lives to do ministry to others in our own power, in our own strength, in our own ability. Forgive us, oh God, for our tendency to do that. Lord, help us to trust in You. Help us to seek You. Help us to believe You. God, give us greater faith, we pray. Lord, help us to live with trust in Your power to do that which would be impossible otherwise. We think about things that we’re praying for, I’m guessing and supposing, in each of our lives right now. That we know if You don’t come through, if You don’t do it, it won’t happen. We trust, oh God, that You have the power to do it. You have the power to answer these prayers, so we pray that You do it in a way that displays Your glory. Give us faith like that. “We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen. (from Pray the Word, Back to the Bible)

For the Weary

Lord, I need You. Please help me sift through the things in my heart, my mind, and even the things on my calendar. Thank you for being the source of all the strength I ever need. Lead me with Your Spirit today. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. – by Gwen Smith, Girlfriends in God

For Strength and Wisdom

Thank you, Lord, for being there for me and allowing me to cry out to you in my times of need. It is amazing to me that the Lord of the Universe would take time to listen to me and to care about what I say. God, there are things happening around me right now that I do not understand. Some of these things make me feel weak, helpless and afraid. Even in the midst of this, I know that you are the Lord. I know that the situation is in Your hand, and I trust You. I beseech you for strength and for wisdom that I would be able to endure this situation and be able to handle it in a way that would bring glory to Your name. In Jesus name. Amen.

In My Weakness, You Are Strong

Lord Jesus, You are my strength and my defense. I humble myself before You, and I declare in my weakness, You are strong. There is no other like You. Thank You for clothing me in Your power and righteousness. I am enough because of You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen. – Arlene Pellicane, Encouragement for Today

Prayer for Strength against Sin

O God, in wonderful ways you created and redeemed mankind. Give us steadfast minds to resist the allurements of sin that we may attain the joys of eternal life. Hear us, O Lord. Amen.

I Asked God For Strength And He Gave Me My Wife

While you undoubtedly want to keep your wife safe at all times, you simply cannot do so in every situation. But we can have hope because our God is everywhere at once. If you pray for your wife, you are essentially handing over responsibility for her care to God and relieving yourself of the burden of worrying about her well-being.

To the Lord, I pray that You guard my wife from all harm today. She lives in the shadow of the Almighty, and I have no doubt that You are protecting her. Please tell God that I am grateful that He has ordered His angels to watch over her. I hope and pray that nothing bad comes to her house. Let no instrument of destruction designed to harm her succeed. Amen.

Psalm 91:1-2 Blessed is he who finds refuge in the shelter of the Most High, who beds down beneath the shadow of the Almighty’s wings. Whoever declares, “The Lord is my refuge; my fortress; my God; I will trust in him,” is one who places his faith in the Lord.

How Do You Ask For Strength From God

Please rest me, Lord. My vigor and enthusiasm have flagged of late. Furthermore, I rely heavily on you. Help me get back on track with your fortitude and new perspective. According to your Word, my strength comes from the joy of the Lord. In that case, I could use some of your happiness to rejuvenate the worn-out parts of my mind, body, and spirit.

At times, I feel trapped by life’s challenges and unable to break out on my own. There are a hundred people calling my name, and I don’t always know who or where to turn to. Lord, keep me from giving up, encourage me to keep running the race with perseverance, and give me the courage to find refuge and strength in your sheltering, hidden presence.

I need your fortitude to resist harmful influences and to shake off the shackles of my own selfishness. When timidity and fear try to get the better of me, I need your fortitude to say yes and follow my heart’s convictions. I need your fortitude to extend my love to those near and far. In what circumstances would I not be weak and in need of God’s power?

You are the one I can always rely on, so I come to you today, hoping that you will strengthen my weary arms, give me the energy I need to complete the tasks you’ve assigned me, and drown out all the sadness in my life with your boundless joy. To be paralyzed by my own limitations and past failures would be to remain stuck on the ground. I’ve had enough of weak attempts. Father, I long to soar like an eagle, to mount up on mighty wings. To soar is my goal.

Oh Lord, please restore my strength. Give me your divine strength so that I can triumph over any difficulty I face. I know I can make it if I keep my focus on the Lord, if he is by my side and doing the work in me. Praise be to God!
