prayer for jesus help

We’ve been praying for Jesus’ help to defeat the enemy, so far God turns a deaf ear. But we will continue to pray, and never give up hope. Even when it seems like nothing else is working then we hold onto God’s Word and believe that He will defeat the enemy.

prayer for jesus help

One of the great blessings of being a follower of Jesus is to know that right now He is interceding for His people before the Father (Roman 8:34; Hebrews 7:25). While we do not know exactly what Jesus says to the Father, we do have examples of many of Jesus’ prayers from the Bible. For example, in John 17:

He not only prays for physical protection, but even more He prays for spiritual protection–that the church’s faith would stay strong after Jesus left them to return to His Father (17:11).

that they would be made holy; that they would know the truth of God and reflect the glory of God on earth (17:17,19).

Jesus prays that his church will grow and that many people in all the earth will come to know Him through the faithful ministry of all His disciples.

What an amazing gift to believers today to be able to read this prayer and know that Jesus was, and still is, going to God — directly and personally — on their behalf.

short prayers for help

There are at least 10 of Jesus’ prayers recorded in the Gospels:

Prayer of Self-Dedication to Jesus Christ

Lord Jesus Christ, take all my freedom, my memory, my understanding, and my will. All that I have and cherish you have given me. I surrender it all to be guided by your will. Your grace and your love are wealth enough for me. Give me these, Lord Jesus, and I ask for nothing more.

Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Most sacred, most loving Heart of Jesus, you are concealed in the Holy Eucharist, and you bear for us still.
Now, as then, you say: “With desire I have desired.” I worship you with all my best love and awe, with fervent affection, with my most subdued, most resolved will. For a while you take up your abode within me. O make my heart beat with your Heart! Purify it of all that is earthly, all that is proud and sensual, of all perversity, of all disorder.
So fill it with you, that neither the events of the day, nor the circumstance of the time, may have the power to ruffle it; but that in your love and your fear, it may have peace.

Humbly beg Gods Grace.

O my God, Thou knowest my great poverty and misery, and that of myself I can do nothing: Thou knowest how unworthy I am of this infinite favour, and Thou alone canst make me worthy. Since Thou art so good as to invite me thus to Thyself, add this one bounty more to all the rest—to prepare me for Thyself. Never let me be guilty of Thy Body and Blood by an unworthy communion. For the sake of this same precious Blood, which Thou hast shed for me, deliver me, O Jesus, from so great an evil.

Indulgenced Prayer.

Behold, O kind and most sweet Jesus, I cast myself on my knees in Thy sight, and with the most fervent desire of my soul, I pray and beseech Thee that Thou wouldst impress upon my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope, and charity, with true repentance for my sins, and a firm desire of amendment, while with deep affection and grief of soul I ponder within myself and mentally contemplate Thy five most precious wounds; having before my eyes that which David spake in prophecy: “They pierced My hands and My feet; they have numbered all My bones.”

The Morning Offering

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You all my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day, in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in reparation for my sins, for the intentions of all my associates, and in particular for the intentions of the Holy Father this month.

Direct our Actions

Direct, we beg You, O Lord, our actions by your holy inspirations, and carry them on by your gracious assistance, that every prayer and work of ours may begin always with You, and through You be happily ended.

A Prayer for the Dead

O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful, grant unto the souls of Thy departed servants full remission of all their sins, that through the help of our pious supplications they may obtain that pardon, which they have always desired. Thou Who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.
V. Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord.
R. And let perpetual light shine upon them
V. May they rest in peace.

powerful prayer for help

Lord, help me please. I’m struggling right now. I feel weak, tired, and worn out. I’m not sure what to do. Honestly, I don’t even know all the right things to say. But I thank you that in the Bible you say that Holy Spirit intercedes for me even when I don’t have the words to describe what I need. God, I have faith that you hear my prayers and believe that you will answer them in ways I can’t even imagine. You’re going to do things that I never expected.

Father, I put my faith in you, knowing that you hear my prayers and love to respond when I pray. In Jesus name, amen.
When we say, “God help me,” we are acknowledging that, above all else, we are dependent upon God.

We are saying, “I don’t have the strength in and of myself to make it through these circumstances…but God does. My God is strong enough to sustain me, even though it may seem like everything is going to pieces.”

When we say, “God help me,” we are agreeing with what the Psalmist said in Psalm 121:1-2:

I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth

Our help comes from one source and only one source: the living God who created the heavens and the earth.

God is our refuge. Our fortress. We don’t need any other help. We don’t look for any other savior. We look to God and ONLY God to rescue us in our time of need.

Often times we’re tempted to look to other sources for security and rescue. We look to money. We trust in our physical strength. We rely upon our resourcefulness.

But when we pray, “God help me,” we’re saying, “I reject any hope other than God. He alone is my hope and stronghold.”

Psalm 46:1 puts it this way, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

I love how it says that is a very present help in trouble. He’s not far off. He’s not distant. No, he’s right there with us, and he won’t leave us or forsake us in the midst of our trouble.

When we’re struggling, when we’re weary, when we’re stumbling, we can know that he is with us every single step of the way. He is VERY present with us.

Father, I put my faith in you in this time of need. I ask for your help. Because you love me, I believe that you will give me the strength I need. I trust you to help me in my weakness and to respond to my prayers for help.

I pray that you would meet my every need and have faith that you will. I am in Christ, and because I am in Him I believe that you will bless me. In Jesus name, amen.
One of the reasons God loves to answer the prayer, “God help me,” is that it gives all the glory to him.

When God alone is the one who can deliver us it means God alone gets all the glory when the deliverance comes.

We certainly don’t get any glory. We’re weak and weary and calling out for God’s help. When God comes through in big, awesome ways, he gets all the glory and praise.

I think this is what Paul was getting at when he said:

For we do not want you to be unaware, brothers, of the affliction we experienced in Asia. For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us rely not on ourselves but on God who raises the dead (2 Corinthians 1:7-9).
