When you’re facing difficult situations and in need of supernatural strength, what can you pray? God is waiting and offers us strength in times of need. When you are weak, weary or unready to stand, and unsure of what to ask, here’s a prayer for strength that might help!
Prayer for Strength When Weary
Lord, I’m weary. My energy is sagging, and my motivation is lagging. And I am so in need of you. I need your strength and your fresh touch to get back on track again. Your Word says the joy of the Lord is my strength. If that’s true, then I need your joy to replace all the bone-tired parts of my mind, body, and soul.
The pressures of life sometimes push me into a corner, rendering me helpless to move forward. A hundred voices call my name, and I feel paralyzed at times to answer, not knowing where to turn. Lord, help me not to quit, to keep running the race faithfully, and to find strength in that safe, secret place of yours, under the shadow of the Almighty.
Prayer for Strength at All Times
I need your strength to say no when I’m tempted to surrender to harmful things, or when selfishness clings to my clothes and won’t let go. I long for your strength to say yes, when cowardice and fear nudge me to deny the convictions of my heart. Sometimes I need your strength to reach out in love to those both close to me and all around me. When don’t I need your strength, God?
Strength to Overcome and Soar
You are my rock, and I run to you today, believing that you will lift up my heavy arms, that you will fuel me for the tasks you’ve given me, and that your joy will completely consume the weakness of my life and make me strong again. I don’t want to stay grounded, crippled by limitations and failed attempts. I’m tired of feeble efforts. Lord, I want to mount up with wings like an eagle and not just fly. I want to soar.
Renew my strength, Lord. Fill me with your supernatural power to overcome each obstacle in my path. With my eyes on you, Lord, with you walking beside me, working through me, I can make it. Thank you, Lord!
In Jesus’s name, Amen.

*And those who are reading this today, please know I am praying for you and with you that God will give you the strength you need. So many are worn out physically, and are simply tired of being tired! Some are struggling spiritually. Still others need emotional strength to make even the smallest decisions. We all need God’s supernatural strength. Like you, I don’t want to stay grounded. I want to soar! Here’s a Bible promise I’m believing God for and claiming for my life. How about you?
But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:31 NLT).
Some translations of that verse use the word wait or hope. But they all involve trusting and leaning on the Lord for the strength we need. And almost every Bible version I checked out uses either shall or will. That’s a Bible promise! And the result of waiting, trusting, or hoping in the Lord? We will experience new strength!
