Prayer for Strength and Comfort

Heavenly Father,

I come to You today feeling weak and in need of Your strength and comfort. I know that You are the God of all comfort and that You promise to never leave me nor forsake me.

Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit, and give me the strength and courage I need to face the challenges that come my way. Help me to trust in Your goodness and faithfulness, and to rest in the knowledge that You are in control.

I pray for Your comfort to surround me like a shield, and for Your peace to fill my heart and mind. Help me to find my hope and strength in You, and to know that You are with me every step of the way.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
