Prayer for Faith

Heavenly Father,

I come before Your throne of grace with a heart full of Faith. I humbly confess that sometimes my Faith wavers and I struggle to trust in Your goodness and Your unfailing love. But I know that You are the God of all comfort and You promised to never leave me nor forsake me.

I ask that You would increase my Faith, as You promised in Your word “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17) Help me to meditate on Your word daily, to read it attentively and to obey it without hesitation. Give me a hunger for Your word and open my heart to understand and apply it in my life.

I ask for the power of the Holy Spirit to guide me and empower me to be Your faithful servant. I pray for the wisdom to discern Your will for my life, and the courage to take bold steps of Faith, even when the outcome is uncertain.

I pray for the Grace to forgive as You have forgiven me, and the power to love as You love me. I lift up all the people around me who are in need of Your love and healing, and I ask that You would use me to be a reflection of Your love for them.

I thank You for the sacrifice of Your Son Jesus, and the promise of eternal life that I have through Him.

I ask all these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.
