Prayer for courage, strength and Wisdom (with bible verses)

In times of trials, we must pray for courage and strength.

There is simply nothing we can accomplish on our own.

We need strength from above to see us through all our troubles.

If you are struggling with a new project and need God’s power and wisdom, you can depend on him to help you.

Likewise, if you are fearful of the future, you need to pray for courage from above.

There are times in our lives when we aren’t sure of what actions to take.

Should I continue with this current project?

Should I go on in this relationship?

Can I continue working in these terrible conditions?

Will I ever get healed again?

In your darkest hours, you can rely on God’s mighty hand to help return happiness to your heart.

Thankfully, there are no impossibilities with God.

So, be rest assured, if you believe in him, he will answer all your prayer.

I have put together this prayer for courage to move forward and do the right thing.

Prayer for courage, strength and Wisdom

We must give thanks

We go through a lot each blessed day.

In our trials, we must stop for a minute to give thanks.

This is crucial in our service to God and for our prayers.

God has still been faithful despite all your troubles and concerns if you will be truthful to yourself.

At least, I know he has not allowed you to go blind (that, of course, is the reason you could read this post).

So, we must appreciate him for all he has done.

God loves praises and requires that we worship him with thanksgiving (even in bad times).

So, before we pray for courage and strength,  let’s thank Him for his loving-kindness toward us.

The scripture says,

I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness;
    I will sing the praises of the name of the Lord Most High.

Psalm 7:17

Let us pray

Prayer for courage, strength and Wisdom (with bible verses)

Loving and caring Father,

You have been my God and my protector.

Lord, I am thankful for all you have done for me.

I will be nowhere without your protection and your mercies.

Despite my shameless iniquities, you have stood by me.

Lord, I have come to thank you and worship your name.

Lord, I ask for forgiveness of my sin.

I am a sinner, and I can not deny myself before you.

You know everything about me, including all my secrets.

Forgive my sins and answer my prayers today.

Thank you, Lord, Amen.

Rejoicing in hope

What are your challenges and your trials?

God has sent the Holy Spirit to comfort us in our trials.

That, we must remain steadfast in his worship and praises.

So, right now, we will ask for the courage and determination to do the right thing.

We will ask God to give us the wisdom and strength to stay focused on our trials.

I know for sure that temptations and trials are inevitable.

But with God on our side, we know we will rejoice in the end.

The scripture says,

Not only so, but we[a] also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us

Romans 5:3-5

Let us pray

Father, you have been my helper for ages past.

Lord, I come to your this day for the courage to do the right thing.

Give me the strength to endure my troubles.

Lord, I ask for the grace to be patient and hopeful.

And that’s because I know that all things work together for good for those who love you.

Help me, Lord, to always look up to you.

Let me not be swayed in my trails.

Strengthen me with the Holy Spirit to endure all the devil throws at me.

Lord, give me the grace to always trust in you.

In my shame and trial, lord, stand by me and protect me.

Lord, I ask for protection over the evil intentions of my enemies and the devil.

Guard me with your angels.

I reject every form of unhappiness in my life.

I reject death, sicknesses, and sorrow from my life.

Lord, I am nothing with you.

Help me in my trials and give me the courage to overcome.

Thank you, Father, for your answered prayers.


He will never leave you alone.

About four months ago, I had already lost hope when God intervened.

I had operated on a patient that suddenly started bleeding.

But thankfully, as I prayed, God came to the rescue and healed my patient.

If you are struggling with any trouble, don’t ever think God has abandoned you.

Don’t let the devil’s spirit of cowardice enter into your soul.

Stand by your conviction that God will miraculously help you.

The scripture says,

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

Deuteronomy 31:8

Let us pray

Prayer for courage, strength and Wisdom (with bible verses)

Everlasting Father, you know all my challenges and my aspirations.

You know my troubles and my pain.

Lord, I am confident that you will never leave me alone.

I know you watch every step that I take in this wicked world.

You said in your word, “Can a mother forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you!”

Therefore, Lord, I ask for strength in my trials.

I humbly seek your presence over the issues in my life.

Give me the courage to succeed over every plan of the enemies.

Let me achieve all that I have planned.

Lord, I need you right now as ever.

Continue to be my hope, strength, and shield.

Please, Lord, do not leave me in my trials.

Thank you, Lord, for your answered prayers.

God thinks about you.

God is our helper and our strength.

He loves us so much and is willing to protect and strengthen us.

Whatever you want to achieve, you must ask God for protection and guidance.

He is able to see you through all your challenges, even in impossible times.

The scripture says,

We love because he first loved us.

1 John 4:19

Let us pray

Prayer for courage, strength and Wisdom (with bible verses)

Dear father,

You have redeemed my soul by sending your son to die for me.

Without that singular act of love, I had no hope for salvation.

I know the plans you think for me are good to give me an expected end.

I know your thoughts towards me are kind and perfect.

Lord, I ask for the grace to be patient in your plan.

I ask for the courage to move forward in my life.

I reject unhappiness and sadness in my workplace, school, and everything I will do today.

Lord, you are my refuge in times of trouble.

I commit my affair before you.

I put all my problems and ambitions in your hands today.

Let all my plans bring happiness to my life.

Thank you, Father, for your answered prayers.
