Prayer of Encouragement

Heavenly Father,

I come to You today with a heart full of gratitude and thanksgiving. You are my rock and my salvation, and I trust in Your goodness and faithfulness. I know that You are always with me and that You will never leave me or forsake me.

I ask that You would give me the strength and courage I need to face the challenges that come my way. I pray for wisdom and guidance as I navigate through the ups and downs of life. Help me to trust in Your plan for my life and to follow Your will for me.

I ask for Your healing touch to be upon me and those I love. Bring peace and comfort to any pain or suffering we may be going through.

Thank You, Lord, for Your love and grace. I pray all this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
