In a world filled with fear and doubt, the easiest choice is to remain meek and mild, but our Heavenly Father precedes us and presses us to walk in our faith boldly. Here are 10 powerful prayers for boldness.
Prayer for Boldness
Heavenly and everlasting Father, You are my mighty Father, and enemies tremble before You. Because You are with me, no one can stand against me. As You have received me into Your kingdom, there is no reason to fear what people can do to me. Over 300 times in Your Word, You command us to choose fearlessness. You say the righteous are as bold as a lion. Give me that boldness, Lord God. Let me be a strong warrior for You and in my life. Push me through my fear to the other side, to the Promised Land with my name on it. Propel me into the face of my fear, and right through it, to Your destiny for my life. I will not cower against the evil one’s spirit of fear, but run it over and claim victory! In Jesus’ mighty name, I pray. Amen.
Prayer to Be Bold Against Injustice
Lord God, my Rock, my Fortress, my Deliverer, I know You are with me and You see every choice I make. I want to live for You and be Your ambassador, but I need boldness from You to do so. I have observed things that are not right, and I need You to embolden me with the courage to speak out against them. Be my Rock, O God. Deliver me from every fear I have of criticism or consequences for standing up for what is right. You say You will come with vengeance, and with divine retribution, You will come to save me. I believe You, God. Increase my trust in You. Make me strong. In Jesus’ mighty name, I pray. Amen.
Prayer for Confidence
Lord God, my almighty and faithful High Priest, there are many times when I lack confidence in myself, and this causes me to be timid and afraid. Help me to stand tall in the certainty of my self-worth as Your child. Destroy my negative thoughts. Empower me in my behavior towards other people. Crush my feelings of inadequacy. Numb me to the opinions others have of me. I know that I am accepted by Your love regardless of other people’s opinions. I know that, as Your child, I am good enough, I am strong enough, and I can do all things through You who strengthens me. I have been made competent by the Spirit of God, and I thank You, that in Jesus, I am secure in my eternal destiny. You have called me by name, and I am Yours. Amen.
Prayer for Boldness at Work
My righteous God, who can stand against You? I need Your Spirit to make me resolute and bold at my place of employment. Give me the integrity and courage to stand for what is in accordance with Your law and not to back down when there is pressure to do the wrong thing. Put Your power in my flesh. You say that if Christ is in me, though the body is dead because of sin, the spirit is life because of righteousness. I am not a slave to sin! Magnify my resolve to stand for what is right, God. This I pray. Amen.
Prayer for Courage in Life
Almighty and everlasting God, I know that my natural self wants to cower and hide. It is not You, God, who gives a spirit of fear, but the evil one himself. Fill me with Your power so I may seek out my fears and confront the evil one who is creating that fear in my life. Help me to find where he is hiding and strip him of his power over me. You say to not be frightened, not be dismayed, for You are with me wherever I go. Empower me, my God, to stand firm and courageous. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and uphold me with Your righteous right hand. Calm my trembling and fix my eyes on Your victory. I am secure in my heavenly citizenship and there is nothing on earth that can take that away. Amen.
Prayer to Be My Own Champion
God of victory, You gave me a spirit not of fear but of power. Clear my mind of the noise of this world, and help me hear Your plan for my life. Guide my path so that I surround myself with supportive people who are champions in their own lives. Tune me in to my own needs so that I stay physically, emotionally and spiritually healthy. Cultivate a confident and positive attitude in me. Remind me that I am Your child, and I’ve got this! Thank You, God, for making me who I am. I know You are working in me to provide bountiful goodness in my life. Amen.
Prayer for Boldness in Sharing the Gospel
Master Potter, Abba, Father, mold me into the image of Jesus, Your Son. I want to share the good news of Your resurrection, but I am scared of being rejected by people. I am also worried that I won’t know what to say, or that I will say the wrong thing. Father, You are the Potter. I am the clay. Shape me into a person who places all trust in You, that Your Spirit will be working in and through me. May Your Spirit go ahead of me to open the hearts and minds of every person I speak to about Your Gospel. Give me the words to say and the right moment to say them. With everything I am and all that I will be, I trust in You, my faithful Father. Amen.
Prayer for Boldness in Sharing the Gospel with a Friend
Precious Holy Spirit, when I think about sharing the Gospel with my friend, I feel terrified. I want them to know You and Your love and forgiveness, but I am paralyzed by the thought of what they will think of me. Help me not to give in to this fear. Help me to face this fear and walk right through it. What You think of me is most important. And if I truly love this friend, I should want them to experience the joy of knowing You, more than I am scared of losing their friendship. For Your glory and my joy, I pray. Amen.
Prayer for Boldness in Sharing the Gospel with My Family
Gracious Father, my Light in the darkness, You know I love my family, and I know that You love them even more. Compel me with Your love to share Your Gospel of how, in love, You save those who trust in You. Lord, I am afraid of how my family might react. Please fill me with boldness and courage. Put Your words in my mouth, Father. Calm my heart so that I leave the aftermath in Your hands. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
Prayer to Live Boldly for Christ
My Father in heaven, there are many opponents to Christians in the world today. Help me to realize and keep it in the forefront of my thinking that I am in a war, not against flesh and blood, but against the evil powers of the spiritual realm. Embolden me to be a formidable soldier for You and join in the battle to fight for You. Clothe me in the Armor of God and energize my spirit. Make me bold. Make me strong. For the sake of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.
