A difficult day at work or at home might strike without warning. These trying times can have an effect on your mental, emotional, and physical well-being, and they can frequently make you feel too weak to face what life has in store for you today. But God already knows you’re strong enough to face any challenge, no matter how big or small, and these prayers for strength will give you the courage you need to remember exactly how tough you are.
It is sometimes simpler to give in to the overwhelming whirl of ideas and emotions that come when you are struggling in any scenario. However, seeking guidance via faith is one option to consider that may also offer you a sense of comfort and calm. Of course, there is no “correct way” to heal, but connecting with your religion via prayer can provide a peaceful sanctuary where you can find strength when you are feeling the most vulnerable. These prayers for strength will give you the strength you need to get through the toughest times.
If you have a family member or friend who is suffering, you can share one of these prayers with them to send them a bit (or a lot) of strength.

Get To Know God
Prayer allows us to get to know the God who created, supports and loves us. And yet, when we come before God, we frequently present Him with a wish list, similar to a grocery list. Can you imagine doing it to your spouse or a close friend? What a bummer! It wouldn’t feel like a conversation at all.
When we chat with other individuals we trust, we normally converse relatively effortlessly, bouncing from one topic to the next, or we spend hours geeking out over the nuances of our favorite issue, basking in the feeling of being understood and loved.
That is the kind of relationship we can have with God. Sure, we can come to Him whenever we need something. But we don’t only pray at that time. Prayer is a continual dialogue with God. A dialogue that, while it may not always change your circumstances, always changes you.
