Prayer for Comfort and Strength

Almighty God,

In times of distress and uncertainty, we turn to You for refuge. Our hearts are heavy and we are in need of Your sustaining presence. We know that You are the source of all comfort and that nothing can separate us from Your love.

We ask that You would give us the strength to endure the difficulties that we are facing, knowing that You are working all things for our good. We ask for the peace that surpasses all understanding to guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

We pray for Your guidance, that You would make Your will clear to us and give us the wisdom to follow it. We trust in Your promise to never leave us nor forsake us and we find comfort in knowing that You are always with us.

Help us to put our worries and troubles at Your feet and let go of fear and anxiety, replace them with faith and trust in You. Fill us with hope and joy in our hearts, renew our spirits, and refresh our souls.

We thank You for Your salvation and the promise of eternal life in Your presence. We praise You for Your goodness and faithfulness.

In Jesus’ Name, we pray, Amen.
