There are many different kinds of prayers you can use in times of stress or difficulty. Often, this is simply because we don’t feel like doing anything else. At other times, we find ourselves overwhelmed by fears and worries that seem to have no end. In those moments, it’s good to know that God loves us unconditionally and wants only the best for us—and that He listens when we cry out for help during difficult times.
prayer for strength in difficult times
There are many times when we feel weak and helpless. When things seem insurmountable, and fear takes over our lives. These are the times when we need courage to face our challenges and hardships with strength. This is what God calls us to, so that we may overcome the difficulties in life and live a life of faith.
At these times we need someone who knows what it’s like to be human, someone who understands all our struggles because he experienced them himself. That is why Jesus Christ came down from Heaven—to help us in our time of need! He wants us to turn to him for guidance, protection from harm or evil; but most importantly—for strength during difficult times so that we can stand up again after being knocked down by life experiences that try hard not only physically but also mentally too (like being bullied).

- Prayer of Saint Peter Chanel, Priest—17th century French missionary in the Pacific: “Lord Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, who by the power of your Holy Spirit didst raise up men from among the Gentiles; grant that we also may be raised up to lead many into the way of salvation through love for you alone.”
- Prayer of St. Catherine Laboure—18th century French nun: “Jesus! You have come down to earth! You have put on human flesh like mine! I see Your hands; they are pierced by nails. My hands are pierced with pain every day; they bleed with my sins as well as yours. Yet I have no right hand to offer You as a sign of friendship because it is consumed by my own selfishness.”

prayer for protection from harm
Prayer for protection from harm and evil is a common prayer request. This prayer is often prayed by people who are in the midst of some kind of trial, whether it be physical, emotional, mental or spiritual. We pray for strength and protection so that we may avoid suffering and continue to grow spiritually through whatever challenges we face.
The Church teaches us that God will protect us from all evil if we ask him to do so. The first step in asking for this type of prayer is simply realizing that we have nothing to fear because Christ has already defeated death itself (Revelation 1:18). The second step involves trying to overcome our own worry about what might happen by relying on Christ’s promise not only to take away our sins but also those who come after us (Revelation 22:17).
prayer for protection from evil
The Lord Jesus Christ has said, “I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” (John 14:13-14)
When we ask God for protection from evil, we should be sure that our request comes from a sincere desire to follow God’s will and not just because of personal fears or worries about what might happen to us. While concerns about safety are understandable, there is a difference between seeking God’s protection and simply worrying about being harmed by others’ actions or words.
We encourage you not only to pray for your own protection; but also pray that others who are lonely or vulnerable—like children—will also be protected from harm at all times by angels sent from heaven above!
prayers of protection and safety Scripture
Scripture is a collection of sacred texts or scriptures. It refers to the words or writings that have been handed down by tradition from the earliest times and are regarded as divinely inspired. Scripture usually refers to the Christian Bible, but it can also be used to refer to other religious texts such as the Jewish Tanakh (Old Testament) or Islamic Quran.
Scripture contains God’s word or message written down by prophets, who received God’s revelation through visions, dreams, and direct inspiration from heaven. The word “scripture” means “writing” in this sense—it was originally a way of describing how God communicated with humans through words on paper (or papyrus). In other words: Holy Scripture is holy because it contains the revealed Word of God; it is not necessarily holy because of its physical appearance or contents!
prayers of protection and safety bible verses
Here are some Bible verses that you can use for protection and safety:
Psalm 91:11-16 says, “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. You will tread upon the lion and cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent underfoot.” Psalm 121:1-8 says, “I lift up my eyes to the hills—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.” Isaiah 50:10 says, “Who among us can dwell with consuming fire? Who among us can dwell with everlasting burnings?” Isaiah 41:10 (NIV) reads “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.” Psalm 23 (NIV) ends with these words, “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life…”

God of mercy and compassion, hear my prayer
My prayer today is for strength and protection. I ask that you guide me as I make important decisions in my life. Give me the courage to stand up for what’s right, and show me how to express my love through my actions rather than words meant only to flatter or impress others.
I know that without you, it would be impossible for me to live a good life—and because of this knowledge, I look forward each day with hope in my heart. When things seem difficult or confusing—or when I feel like giving up on myself—I know that you are there with open arms ready to embrace me once again into your loving embrace!
God of mercy and compassion, hear my prayer
Heavenly Father, the guardian of souls, I entrust into your care all those I love.
Heavenly Father, the guardian of souls, I entrust into your care all those I love: my family and friends; my teachers, co-workers and colleagues; those who are suffering in hospitals or prisons.
May they be protected from every evil by your power and grace. Give them strength during difficult times. Grant them wisdom to discern the signs of the times with clarity so that they may put their trust in you alone. May they continue to seek your wisdom daily so that they can live according to your ways rather than following selfish desires or worldly temptations.
Help me also to be strong when faced with temptation—to resist sin and self-indulgence—so that I may serve you faithfully throughout my life on earth and gain everlasting joy in heaven!
God of strength and courage, today I choose to face my fears

God of all comfort, be with my loved ones during this time of struggle.
God of all comfort, be with my loved ones during this time of struggle.
I know you are there to comfort me, to help me and strengthen me. I also know that you are there to protect me. I thank you for being a constant companion in my life, even when it feels like the world is falling apart around us.
Almighty God, thank you for the loving care you have shown me throughout my life
Thank you, God.
The love of Christ is unconditional and always there for us. Even when we have sinned or fallen short of your glory, you love us still. You sent your son Jesus to come down from heaven and die on the cross for me so that I could be forgiven of my sins and receive eternal life in heaven with you.
Thank you for leading by example with your perfect life and sacrifice for all mankind, because as humans we are too weak to solve our problems on our own. We need someone greater than ourselves who can help us overcome any challenge we face in this world!
O Lord, allow me to be a shield to others as you are a shield to me. Help me to protect the weak and vulnerable in their lives.
