Unexpected difficult days at work or home can happen to anyone. Your mental, emotional, and physical health can all be negatively impacted by these trying times, and you may frequently feel too frail to handle the challenges life has in store for you right now. But these prayers for strength will give you the bravery you might need to recall how resilient you are; God already knows that you are strong enough to overcome any challenge, no matter its size or weight.
When you are struggling in any scenario, it can sometimes be simpler to give in to the overwhelmingly strong wave of thoughts and feelings that tends to come up. But one option to consider that can potentially bring you comfort and calm is to seek advice via your faith. No “correct method” exists on the road to recovery, but connecting with your faith via prayer can provide a calm haven where you can draw strength when you’re at your weakest.
You will be strengthened by saying these prayers for strength so that you can get through the toughest times. And you can share one of these prayers with a friend or family member who needs it to give them a little (or a lot of) strength.

7 Prayer of the Day for Strength
A Prayer for Strength and Encouragement
Lord, in a time of trouble and suffering, I need your inspiration just like David did. Thank you for constantly being on the throne, my God, and always ready to intervene. I’m grateful that you are the same God that you were to David and are to me. I’m grateful that you are always there to help me overcome my worries and hurts. Lord, please remind me that morning may be right around the corner and that this trial won’t last forever. Give me faith that dawn is near and that your love will win out forever, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Prayer for Strength Based on the Strength of God and His Word
The message that leaves Your mouth, Father, will not come back to You empty but will fulfill your wishes and serve the reason that You intended it to. Based on Your word, I give these prayers to You for power. My glory and I are both like the grass that withers, according to Your word, but Your word, my God, endures forever. The teachings of Jesus will endure even after the death of heaven and earth. The individual whose strength is in You is very blessed. They gain vigor as they proceed into the valley. Please answer my prayers for strength in the name of Jesus, Amen.
Prayer for Strength When Weary
Lord, I’m worn out. My motivation is flagging, and my energy is waning. And I really need you right now. To get back on track, I need your fortitude and your innovative style. The joy of the Lord is my strength, according to your word. If that’s the case, then I require your delight to replenish all of my mind, body, and soul’s worn-out components.
Sometimes life’s pressures force me into a corner and leave me unable to move forward. I sometimes feel frozen when a hundred people yell my name because I don’t know where to go. Lord, please assist me to finish the race well and find courage in that quiet, safe haven you have under the protection of the All-Powerful.
When I’m tempted to give in to bad things or when selfishness clings to my clothing and won’t let go, I need your power to say no. When timidity and fear urge me to reject my heart’s desires, I need your courage to say “yes.” I need your power to extend love to everyone around me and to those who are close to me. When won’t I require your might, God?
My Strength and Song
Nothing is too tough for You, Father. Nothing I ask of You today is out of Your capacity. I’m grateful that You already know what I need and want before I ever ask. You are aware of my frailty, and only You can give me courage and joy. You give me hope and make me sing. I will praise you as my God since you are my savior. When I see Your strength, fill my heart to bursting with Your praises. Amen.
A Prayer for Strength When You’re At Your Weakest
Give me the perseverance, Lord Jesus, not the dismal perseverance of gritting my teeth, but the glory-strength God grants. It is the strength that endures the intolerable and overflows into joy, giving thanks to the Father who empowers me to partake in all the bright and lovely that he has planned for me. Jesus, strengthen me in my frailty. Amen.
Prayers for Stress
Please, Lord, My head is being assaulted by a myriad of worries. I’ve been worrying about all of these things and am so exhausted. I won’t be holding them any longer. I throw them to You because I am confident You can catch them. You hold all I cherish and take care of in Your hands, including myself, my loved ones, my dreams, and everything else. You possess unbounded intelligence, ingenuity, strength, and love. You can look after me and all the things I value. Lord, we thank You, in the name of Jesus. Amen
