If you clicked on the title to this post because you wanted to know more, because you need to pray … I’m guessing you need a miracle in your life.
You’re not alone … my most visited post is 5 Verses to Pray When You Need God to Do the Impossible.
And if you visit the Blessing Counters Pray Page … you’ll find prayer after prayer from people asking for God’s miraculous intervention.
Which is one of the reasons why I write. You see…
I’ve experienced God’s miracles!
- He has forgiven me.
- He has given me the gift of faith.
- He calls me His child.
- He gives me hope for the future.
For this anxiety-ridden worrier who knocked herself out to do life “right” and failed miserably … His grace, mercy, and healing love are miraculous.
I’ve also experienced His miraculous power when…
- He lovingly healed my broken heart I believed was beyond repair.
- He healed Rev of near-fatal Constrictive Pericarditis and gave us bonus days to count.
- He protected our 1 lb 9 oz preemie grandson through months in the NICU, PICU, and beyond. Today he is a thriving 11-year-old young man.
He is the God of miracles. The God for whom anything in possible.
I can’t promise you He will give you every miracle you ask for… you see, I have experienced His “no” at times and I am also still waiting and praying for miracles yet unseen because He is saying “not now.”
I can promise you … He hears every prayer, He loves you, and He will always give You His best even when you don’t understand.
So, we’ll pray and go to the One who hears, loves, and gives His best when we need a miracle.
5 Verses to Pray When You Need a Miracle
O God, Your ways are holy.Psalm 77:13–14
Is there any god as mighty as You?
You are the God of great wonders!
You demonstrate Your awesome power among the nations.
Father, Help me remember today that You are who You say You are. You are holy, mighty, and powerful. You are my Creator, Redeemer, and Comforter. You are gracious, merciful, and loving. You are my way and the truth I need. You are my hope for the future.
You are the God of miracles, the One for whom nothing is impossible. And Father, I need a miracle and so I lay my problem before You asking for Your grace and mercy. Please strengthen me today and help me keep my focus on You rather than on this things that is overwhelming me.
The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book. But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in Him you will have life by the power of His name.John 20:30–31
Father, Thank you for those You inspired to keep a record of all the works of Your hand from the beginning of time. Thank you for the people who documented Jesus’ life and ministry.
Your Word helps me know You. It inspires me and gives me hope. It is the weapon I need to fight the attacks of the enemy. Your Word is Truth! And I believe! I believe Jesus is Your Son and my Savior. I believe that through Him I have life and that is the miracle I needed the most. Thank you, Father.
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”Matthew 19:26
Father, I believe in Your hands the impossible becomes possible. I admit that sometimes this problem seems impossible. It’s hard to imagine a good outcome. I know the way I want it to go but at moments I have my doubts that the outcome I hope for will happen. But then I remember all the good things You have done for me in the past. I remember miracles that were born in hopes and prayers. So, I surrender this need to You asking You to once again make the impossible possible.
“Abba, Father,” He cried out, “everything is possible for you. Please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want Your will to be done, not mine.”Mark 14:36
Father, This is hard! It’s hard to say, “Your will be done.” It’s hard to ask and then let it go in faith. It’s hard to surrender my will when the possible pain seems like more than I can bear.
Help me remember that although You didn’t take away Jesus’ cup of suffering You gave His all He needed to endure. And You did it for me. You strengthened Him and gave me life.
Help me remember that You see the big picture of my life and every life. You hold it all in the palm of Your hand. You sometimes allow what is painful because You know how it can affect the future.
So, help me trust You today and say, “I want Your will to be done, not mine.”
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!Psalm 106:1–2
His faithful love endures forever.
Who can list the glorious miracles of the Lord?
Who can ever praise Him enough?
Father, Thank you! You are good! You are love! You are worthy of all my praise!
You are the God of miracles … too many to count! Today, I’m asking for You to bless me with one more miracle. I believe You are able. Please strengthen me and give me everything I need so whatever You decide, even if you don’t grant this miracle, I will rest secure knowing my hope is in You alone.
Father, I trust Your will. I am secure in Your perfect love and I will praise You now and forever and even then … it will never be enough. In Jesus name, I pray.
Friend, I know you have moments when you wonder if you should give up because waiting on this miracle feels like the hardest thing you’ve ever had to do. And my heart hurts for you.
I can’t tell you how much I’ve struggled to find the words to say to encourage you in these last few sentences.
You see, I could stand with the prosperity teachers and tell you God wants you to have this miracle for which you’re praying. I could even stand with those who say you should simply forcefully and confidently bombard the throne room until God gives you want.
But I can’t. Because I will only share with You what I believe to be His truth.
And the truth I believe … is that God loves you and wants what is best for your eternal future. He hears every prayer and He loves you more than you can imagine. I am certain that your future is safe with Him.
If you need a miracle today…
- cry out to Him.
- fall at His feet.
- touch the hem of His robes.
- thank Him for all He has done in the past.
- trust Him and follow where He leads.
Give it all to Jesus and surrender Your need and all that you are to God’s timing, love, and perfect will because that’s where miracles happen.
