9 Powerful Prayers for Faith and Trust in God

When doubt enters our mind, it can be difficult to recover. These powerful prayers for faith and trust in God will remind us seek resolution from the Lord.

Prayer #1

Heavenly Father, please strengthen our hearts, and remind us to encourage one another when the troubles of life start to overwhelm us. Please guard our hearts from depression. Give us the strength up to rise up each day and fight against the struggles which seek to weigh us down. Amen.

Prayer #2

Dear Lord, times are really hard right now and life has really got me down. I don’t know what to do. I ask that You bestow Your wisdom upon me. I don’t want to lean on my own knowledge anymore, because it has let me down so many times. I need to hear Your voice. Give me the discernment to hear Your voice and Your voice alone. Speak to me in the way You know I will hear you best. I also pray for Your Will, Lord. I give You the praise and the glory in my circumstances because I know that I am exactly where You want me. I know this is to teach me something or to help me to grow. No matter what, I trust you and ask You to show what is best in this situation. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Prayer #3

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for your good thoughts about me. May my thoughts reflect your truth and nothing else. When I have a negative thought, I pray for your help to quickly recognize it and that You would empower me to focus on what is true, pure, and lovely. Thank You Lord.

In Jesus Christ Name I pray, Amen.

Prayer #4

Dear Heavenly Father, Your ways are higher than my ways. I pray for power and strength to surrender my way and follow your best way. I trust You Lord.

In Jesus Christ Name I pray. Amen.

Prayer #5

Lord Jesus,

The world is changing so fast. Every day the media relays tales of those who disregard law, devise evil, and destroy both people and property. And because of what’s happening, fear sometimes rises up in my heart—for me, for those I love, and for people everywhere. Yet I know you are in control.

I ask you today for your supernatural protection, Lord—both personally and globally. Please station angels around my home and family to guard them from danger. Lead us away from temptation, and help us to run from the presence of questionable activities or harmful influences. When we’re weak, help us to look up to you and to hold on tight to the truth that you love us and want the best for us.

In Jesus’ precious name,

Prayer #6

Father, I feel like I’m at a crossroads. I want to honor You and follow the path You want for me. Please make Your will clear. Show me the path to take. I will study Your Word to know Your truth. Please give me the courage to willingly accept even rocky paths knowing You are with me. I love it when life is smooth and easy but I know You sometimes choose to allow bumps to draw me close and help me grow. So, I put my hope in You that whatever the journey holds for me, You will never leave me or forsake me. Thank you, Father. Amen.

Prayer #7

Oh, Father, how I love that You guide me. You are my loving Father, who wants to shelter and protect me yet, I foolishly and stubbornly go my own way. Forgive me. Help me. I believe Your way is best but when I take my eyes off You, I am so easily tempted to get myself into trouble. Please help me follow You on the path that leads to lasting victory. In Jesus name, thanks and praise now and forever. Amen.

Prayer #8

I will run to you, Lord, whenever I feel afraid. I know your hand will protect me and lead me into your shadow, Almighty God, where I can rest and be safe. I know that bad things can happen to all of us, but you are always there to bring good out of it. And you’ve promised me that no one can harm my spirit/soul—the innermost part of me that you’ve destined for eternity. Because I belong to you, you will give me safe passage—all the way to my eternal home.

But while I’m still living in my temporary house on earth, I pray you will not only guard my heart, but also my mind from foolish thoughts and actions. Expose the lies that try to twist the truth. Give me discernment, Lord, and wisdom for the good times, the hard times, and all the in-between-times. Let me never leave home without your protection and without the spiritual armor you’ve given me.

I place my trust and dependence on you, today, Lord. Like the commander of a great army, you are in control, and you will go to any lengths to insure the safety of those under your wing of protection. I believe you want good, not harm for my life. And I am asking that you will replace fear with the confident assurance that you are always here with me, protecting me from harm. Others may try to hurt my body, Lord. But they can never destroy my soul. I’m safe with you, Jesus.

In Jesus’ precious name,

Prayer #9

Dear God, You never said it was going to be easy. You simply said, “Trust me.” My faith is strong and I give myself to You. I will live this life with gratitude. Appreciating every little thing; its difficulties and pleasures. For all this and more, I am grateful.
