5 Verses to Pray When You Need God to Do the Impossible

Sharing is caring!

Do you ever have times when your life’s circumstances seem impossible?

Times when … your relationship is broken, or you can’t find a job, or your child is rebellious, or you can’t break a long-held bad habit, or your pain or illness is worsening, and life is just plain hard?

Times when you wonder if the outcome you’re praying for is even possible?

The Bible says, Nothing is impossible for God. These 5 prayers will help you pray when you need Him to do what only He can do in your impossible circumstances. #Pray #Faith #AnythingisPossible

I’ll be honest with you. I do, too!

I’ve had times when my heart was heavy and I felt like I’d prayed the same prayer request a thousand times. Even now, I have a few big prayers that I continue to pray even though nothing seems to change.

And in my sadness, I start to wonder if this prayer of my heart is even possible.

Jesus repeatedly told people that God is able to do the impossible…

“What is impossible for people is possible with God.”

Luke 18:27

And He also told people to…

“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.”

Matthew 7:7

So, I’m praying today but I’m not only asking God to do the impossible … I’m believing that He CAN DO the IMPOSSIBLE!

And even though I’ve asked Him a thousand times before, I’m confident He will hear my prayer and respond in love!

Maybe you’d like to join me.

5 Verses to Pray When You Need God to Do the Impossible

The Bible says, Nothing is impossible for God. These 5 prayers will help you pray when you need Him to do what only He can do in your impossible circumstances. #Pray #Faith #AnythingisPossible

“O Sovereign Lord! You made the heavens and earth by Your strong hand and powerful arm. Nothing is too hard for You!”

“I am the Lord, the God of all the peoples of the world. Is anything too hard for me?

Jeremiah 32:17 & 27

Father, I go outside and see the beauty of Your creation. The sun, moon, and stars hung perfectly in place. Seas and land, mountains and valleys, plants and animals with countless variations all sustained in complete order by Your gracious hand.

Father, nothing is too hard for You!

You care for and protect Your children … body and soul.

Nothing is too hard for You!

I believe You are able to do the impossible and Father, and sometimes from my perspective, this problem appears impossible. But You are the God of possibilities! Please, Father, do what only You can do. Please help me by Your Grace. Amen.

He counts the stars and calls them all by name. How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension!

Psalm 147:4–5

Father, You see me. You know me by name. And You love me! I am not just one of many … I am Your child. I am Your own.

There is nothing I can experience that is beyond Your understanding and comprehension. This battle I’m facing is known to You.

I believe You know what I need and that You will provide it. I understand that it may not be what I want … but it will always be what is best for me.

I also believe that if You ask me to wait or endure, You have promised to give me the strength and peace and everything else I need each day.

This is hard, Father, but You are great! Your power is absolute. Your grace is sufficient. Your love unfailing. Thank you! Amen.

Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to Him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

Ephesians 3:20–21

Father, I need Your mighty power to work within me.

“Lord, I believe, help my unbelief!” (based on Mark 9:24)

I believe You are able to accomplish infinitely more than I might ask or think. As I fight this battle, please help me keep my eyes on You … not on the problem. Give me the courage and strength to surrender this situation to You. By Your grace, help me trust Your love for me and live with the confidence that You care about this even more than I do.

Father, You sacrificed everything to save me and show me the greatness of Your love.

I surrender this day to You. Help me in this wait to know with confidence that even though I can’t see it … You are at work doing what only You can do, things that will always be for my good and Your glory. Thank you, Father. Amen.

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.”

Mark 10:27

Oh, the reassurance of Jesus’ words, Father. Were it not for You … there would be no saving grace. Were it not for You … I would have no faith.

Because of You, Father, the impossible becomes possible. Being born again becomes reality. And love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control become blessings I enjoy because of Your Spirit within me. Thank you!

Your grace is sufficient! (1 Corinthians 12:9) And I have everything I need. (Psalm 23:1)

Father, there is no limit to what You can do. Your miracles touch the lives of Your children each and every day.

Please help me trust Your plan for me today. Help me follow where You lead and obey Your will as You reveal it to me. Help me to see Your miracles. Amen.

This same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from His glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

Father, As I face this problem, please help me remember all the ways You have provided for me.

You have met my needs in the past and I believe You will meet my needs today and every day in the future.

You have given me strength and courage when I was afraid. You gave me hope when my circumstances seemed hopeless. You have given me patience when my wait felt like it was too long. Whatever my need … You have a glorious rich supply.

Father, You’ve kept every promise You’ve ever made. I can and will trust You to keep Your promises in the future.

By Your grace, You’ve helped me love when I wanted to turn away. You’ve forgiven my broken past and given me all I need to forgive others. You’ve healed my broken heart and filled me up.

You’ve have given me Jesus! I have everything I need!

You truly are the God of possibilities! Absolutely nothing is impossible to You.

So, today, I will trust You with my needs, wants, and desires. And with Your help, I will surrender my pain and problems to Your perfect wisdom and care.

In Jesus name. Amen.

The Bible says, Nothing is impossible for God. These 5 prayers will help you pray when you need Him to do what only He can do in your impossible circumstances. #Pray #Faith #AnythingisPossible

Whatever is going on in your life today…

God is able.

Rick Warren wrote…

Never let an impossible situation intimidate you. Let it motivate you – to pray more, trust more, expect more.

I want that…

I want to pray more, trust more, and expect more.

Because the truth is…

There are no impossible situations for the child of the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient God because for our Father … nothing is impossible!

Whatever situation you are going through, through prayer and communication with God through his son Jesus Christ, your situation will be bearable. He will not give you more than what you can’t handle. I pray his love and kindness covers you and your family and lifts you up with endurance to have hope and faith in Him. All things are possible with Him. Remember to pray constantly and give thanks for all He does in your life. I’m myself and going through very difficult times in my life and sometimes it’s easy to forget that He knows best and we will get through this. He will bless us with His mercy and grace.

      1. Hi Deb, this is my first time I read your articles and it’s inspired me so much. And I want a prayer request for my husband he’s so confused and he can’t stand of his words when he say something and it’s easy to change his mind and he keep bringing up about the past which is cause of our argument and make me feel bad. I’m looking forward to hearing from you. God will bless you more.

        1. Marites, I am happy to pray for you and for your husband. I’m asking God to give you His peace and asking Him to give your husband clear thoughts and the ability to communicate his thoughts clearly and kindly. Thanks so much for stopping by and for taking the time to join the conversation and leave your prayer request. God bless you!

  15. My husband is being bullied at work. . It is happening in a Christian University. My children are having a hard time reconciling this. He is a good father, husband, and employee. He retired from an honorable military and govt life service to work at this university. Unfortunately, the executive leadership here has ruined the lives, futures, and finances of a few families and that of their spouses and children. There is nothing Christian in their behavior. We need strength and protection. Thank you for this blog. I am so thankful I found it. God bless you in all of your endeavors, Janet

    1. Push Janet!!! Pray until something happens!! When I get overwhelmed by circumstances, I think of Peter walking on water. He didn’t hesitate when Jesus bid him to come. As long as he kept his eyes on Jesus he walked with confidence on the water; but when he looked down at the water, he began to sink. Focus on God, stay in his word and pray without ceasing!! When I focus on God and lay my burdens at his feet (and not pick them up again) the worry and stress of the problems diminish. I’m left with a peace that brings me joy. I have had many answered prayers!! Prayers are not just wishes in the wind!! They are a connection to our ABBA Father!! When we pray in the will of God miraculous things happen!!! I’m so grateful that we can come before our Heavenly Father with our with our praise and prayer requests. There are prayers that I’m still waiting for answers to. No matter the outcome his grace is sufficient for me!!

  16. Deb, I have read all the devotions you & others wrote & they are truly wonderful & help my hurting heart. March is three years ago my hubby, Ray accepted a false cult as the truth & the only way to go to Heaven. He constantly talks ugly to me because I refuse to obey him & what he believes. I am accountable to Almighty God..not him or anybody else & I accept what Jesus did on the cross for mankind & I praise Him! So much of the New Testament teaches us that we are under Grace.not any laws or rules to live by..He even says he is not sure he will do enough to get into Heaven. He really believes the “mess” he is being taught. I am 81 years old & should not have to deal with his nonsense. Our grown children cannot believe he has become so hateful because we refuse to accept anything he says about “the truth”.. Please pray for me & my family. This week has been especially tough. God bless you!

  17. This is so much of what I/everyone needs today…Thank you for your service…Love most of all above all things…God Bless you and your Family…

  18. Dear Jesus,

  19. Hi I am so blessed n encouraged..I’m going though some tough situations my marriage but your post has really helped and encouraged me to keep on trusting and have hope in God through these stormy times because God Is the God of all the impossibility..

  20. Hi I have been greatly blessed by this post. I felt God speaking to me through your prayer. The Lord sent me here to be encouraged by His word. I am going through a financial situation and this post was right on the money (Ha ha). God bless you for being a vessel for His word. Please continue to do so, we know with God all things are possible to them that believe.

    1. I am so glad it blessed you, Bernice. Thank you for your kind encouragement. You truly blessed my day! Have a beautiful day in the Lord.

    1. I am praying for you and trust that God hears your prayers and mine. I suffered for many years with anxiety and in all honesty, I still struggle on occasion. But God is faithful and I will, with His help, keep my focus on who He is and all He’s done. Because He has gotten me through things in the past I thought would crush me. He is faithful and He loves you!

  22. Thank you.I needed to read those words today as I face another round of Chemotherapy tomorrow.Round 18 here I come.I have Pancreatic Cancer Stage 4 and need a miracle to let me live beyond the time clock of the death sentence of 5 years.
    God Bless You.

    I also pray our relationship can grow stronger through this.

    Thank you!

    1. Can lord time travel us backwards for some years! Can we go back in time for some years. M serious to this question, is this possible for Almighty, can any few no. Of person time travel backwards?

      1. I believe the Lord can do anything, Elizabeth. However, I also believe that except for one rare time in the Bible when He did, He chooses to keep creation moving in it’s planned order. If your question is one of regret, I also know that God is loving and forgiving. Although you may be living out some difficult circumstances, God is with you and with His help, you will get through this. God bless you – I’m praying for you!

  24. Please pray for my son to be delivered from smoking before he develops health issues and for his salvation.

  34. I’m asking for prayers to be obedient to God’s will and purpose for my life, so that I can be happy, at peace, and stable.

  35. Thanks for the content you’ve put because this has given words to the prayer burden of my heart . May God bless you .

  36. Thank you for your beautiful post Deb! It was so inspiring … I’m going to share it with others and read it often as a reminder. What a blessing you are! 🙂

  37. I’m sitting here now in my car trying to find the way to my husband’s hospital bed and remove the life support he’s been on since Mar 28th, 2019. I’m praying for the strength I need right now Jehovah. Please in any way heal me and Mark from this trial. I ask for my family to feel safe and believe Jehovah knows what he is doing and nothing is impossible. Thank you for the words if wisdom and I continue with faith and understanding abilities I am being given right. Is. Amen

    1. Oh, Maria, my heart breaks for you! I’ve been thinking about you and praying for you since I read this. I can’t imagine how difficult this must have been for you. I’m asking God to cover you with His comfort and peace … that He will hold you close and give you a very real sense of His presence and love. I’m asking Him to surround you with people who will hold you up in prayer and encourage you as you walk through these difficult days. God bless you! I will keep praying.

  38. Each day I repeat this prayer with the burdens of my heart . It takes a while for us to walk in the dimension where we believe what we pray for . I pray that God continue to strengthen and prepare more people like you.

    1. Leena, God is with you. He hears your prayers and holds you close. Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. God bless you!

  39. I just saw the result of a promoting examination and it was not so favourable,I pray that God almighty makes a way where there seems to be none.

    1. I’m sorry, Debby! I’m praying for you and asking God to give you His peace and direction in the days ahead. God bless you!

  40. I just happened upon your site and am so glad I did. Sometimes it’s so hard to know how to pray for myself. I’ve always said prayers for others, not so much for myself. Guess I’ve never felt deserving. I really do need the Lord to help me with several issues, mostly my health. Thank you for this site

    1. I completely understand, Jody. I’ve always found it easier to pray for others as well. I’m not sure why. I started keeping a prayer journal this year, where I’m praying through parts of Scripture and applying it to my life. It has helped me so much. I am praying for you today and asking God to meet every need … especially in the area of health. God bless you!

  41. Your words I read tonight touched home for me. I am struggling with so many life changing issues and I don’t know how to deal with all of them; but after reading Count My Blessings has helped. I have been praying asking for His help and I do know every thing is on His time not ours. I just feel like I am sinking fast and I need maybe a sign that I can give me hope and lighten my stress and worry and help clear. May God Bless you and keep up your work of reaching out and sharing His word.

    1. Thank you so much for visiting, Carol! I’m actually working on prayer post today asking God to help us during times of change. It’s hard, isn’t it?! Sometimes I think, even good change is difficult. I’m so glad these prayers helped you find peace. I hope you’ll visit often and join me as I pray. Thank you for your encouragement. It truly blessed me! God bless you!

  42. Thank You. Amen!
    We truly appreciate you!
    May the Lord bless you and make His face shine upon you and gracious to you!
    Stay blessed!!

  43. Thank you for the encouragement that you and God have given me today. My husband has bad cancer and I am on a walker and wheel chair so we have a big problem. However God is seeing us through each day for which I am grateful. I have been studying about the Holy Spirit and am realizing that I have more power than I thought. We have been married for 60 beautiful years and I so want to care for him as long as I can. Please pray for us and in advance of this I say THANK YOU.

    1. Oh Sally, I’m so sorry you are going through this difficult time. That is a lot to manage. I’m praying and asking God to continue to give you the strength you need each day! God bless you and your husband. And congrats on 60 blessing-filled years!

    1. Amen, Phillip! One of my life verses and my motto for life … SEEK FIRST! Praise God that He wants to be known by us! Blessings!

  44. My daughter, who is single, is a Foster Mom to a little boy who has trauma from the first 6 years of his life. He’s been with her for a year now, but there are “mental health” issues that are spiritual in nature. She needs wisdom, strength and courage.

    1. Oh, Cynthia, I am lifting up your daughter and her little boy … asking God to give her strength and wisdom and to heal this child’s broken heart. Praying Jeremiah 29:11 over them both. God bless you!

  45. this Prayer was and will continue to be in my thoughts. My son is struggling with addiction and I am beyond broken hearted. He is a believer and has a strong faith. He is in a spiritual battle. He is seeing it physically. Demons standing over his bed and paralyzed w fear. We are in spiritual warfare. Please join me in praying for the defeat of the enemy in my child’s life. I know God is with him and will defeat the enemy.

    1. Barbi, I am so sorry! What a difficult battle for your family. I’m lifting your son up in prayer and asking God to give you all strength and defeat the enemy in this attack. God bless you!

  46. Please pray for my family. My husband has decided to leave me after 20 years. He said he is doing it because I don’t love him anymore, but I have tried to tell and show him that I do. I believe he was just looking for a way out. I’m trying to be strong, and praying everyday. Clinging to my faith and love of God.

    1. Oh, Amanda, I am so sorry you are going through this painful time. I am lifting you up in prayer … asking God to give you His peace and hold you close. God bless you!

  47. Thank you for the wonderful prayers. I am hoping with more reading and praying one day I’ll be able to pray half as beautifully as you. I’m grateful for your sharing. Thank you 🙏

    1. Nellie, Thank you for your kind encouragement. I am so thankful we are praying to the One who knows our hearts and minds meeting every need even when words fall short … which mine do all the time. What a blessing to be covered by His amazing grace. God bless you!

  48. I feel lost. I’m in need of prayer I don’t feel I deserve. Bed ridden with arthritis I can hardly walk. I wish I could be laid at the feet of Jesus. If I could just touch His garment I’d be cured… I just want to be touched by His shadow… Bless you for having this site… In Jesus I pray for you and your followers. Amen

    1. I am so very sorry, Antonio! I am lifting you up in prayer, asking Jesus to heal your body and free you from this pain. Thank you so much for your prayers! God bless you!

  49. Thank you for these wonderful spiritually filled prayers for those dark and troubled times we all seem to have. Your words are very lifting and inspirational and helping me let go of worrying about my problems and instead placing them at our Father’s feet in humility.

  50. Thank you for reminding me that all things are possible. Today I needed to spend time reading these truths and prayers and prayer requests. Please pray for me that I am delivered from the addiction of smoking, my sister’s health,my friends commutation application and a house. In life I start out with focus and good intentions but I lack commitment. I fail daily in may things because of it. I asked in the name of jesus to please help me to be committed to him and my purpose he has for me.

  51. Thank you for reminding me that nothing is impossible with God
    I’ve been hanging by a thread
    my faith has kept me from giving up, sometimes things- life can just weigh you down to point of pure exhaust
    I know I’m not defeated
    My father in heaven loves me
    Knows my pain n families difficulties n struggles
    I’m encouraged today even more so Deb by your empowering words
    God is a good n nothing’s impossible for Him, I truly believe that

  52. …just as the rain and snow come down from heaven and does not return to heaven without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish…so is My word that goes out of my mouth: It will not return to me empty, I will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:10-11 –Thank you for sharing these verses. My son is climbing out of his choices in his life it hasn’t been easy, but He is making progress in seeing the hand of God work in his life. There are more obstacles ahead of him teaching him to trust God. He is far away and I cannot help him…(God designed it that way) The hardest thing a parent has to go through is to watch her child go through self inflicted struggles and unable to do anything to “fix” it. God’s plan does not look like our plans and His way is not our way, but His purpose will prevail and I know the main purpose is that all will come to the saving knowledge of His grace and love. Thank you for the verses to keep me focused on praying for God’s will and not my will be done. Sometimes as parents we have to watch the struggle so that their wings will be strong enough to take flight the moment they finally break through. To God be the glory, honor and praise.

    1. Thank you so much for visiting, Teresa! I’m asking God to bless you and your family … and hold your son close as he moves forward. I so appreciate your kind encouragement. God bless you!

  53. I’ve suddenly become single in a country I came in to be with my husband, I have two young kids now, no family, struggling with a part-time job, no funds to get my professional licence on to get better paid job. Feeling weighed down without someone to talk to and just earlier today I poured my heavy heart. I believe he will arise on my behalf. In Jesus name.

    1. Oh, Omolola, I am so sorry! That is a heavy burden to bear. I am praying for you and asking God to make it possible for you to get your license and provide a way for you to take care of your family! God bless you! God is holding you close.

  54. I pray to God Almighty that I may pass m exams amd go to my final year to graduate next. I am not going to be a drop-out but a graduate.

    AMEN

  55. I need prayer right now for finances and a job. I have been looking for almost 3 months. I trust GOD but I am starting to get a bit frustrated and discouraged. I know HE is gonna send me that perfect job at some point and I just need to trust HIM. I need prayers because it is starting to seem hopeless. Is it maybe my former employer saying some things about me that are not true or is it that I am not going for the right jobs. I need prayer for guidance as well. Thank you.

    1. Waiting is so very hard sometimes. I’m praying for you and asking God to encourage you and give you hope. I’m also asking Him to guide you to the job He is preparing for you and that your wait will be over very soon. Thank you so much for visiting and for stopping to ask for prayer. God bless you!

  56. Thank you for this page. Im browsing for prayers of healing of the sick and found this page which gave me more faith and hope. My mom (ENRIQUETA MONTOYA PINEDA) had a stroke and is still in the hospital. I pray for the impossible be possible to God Almighty that she will survive and to live longer to let her know how much we, her family, loves her. She is the bond that keeps our family together. I also pray that my baby will grow healthy in my tummy this time (had 3 consecutive miscarriages) and that my mom will still be around to meet my second baby.

    I humbly ask for all of your prayers.

    Thank you and may God bless us all of our heart’s desires. In Jesus’ name, AMEN!

    Caroline

    1. I’m so sorry, Caroline. I’m praying for you and asking God to heal your mom, Enriqueta, and protect your little one. I’m also asking Him to give you His peace during this stressful and difficult time. God bless you!

  57. Searching, ideas, emotions is all about take me in my walk of life needs, thanks for sharing the possible of God, amazing change

  58. Please pray for my daughter and I. We are struggling in life and the enemy is attacking. I know our father has BIG plans for us. I can’t help to feel saddened, lonely and frustrated. I pray for patience, guidance, and Christian friends for support and encouragement. I pray for my daughter who is a teenager in this world we live in, to be a mother and teacher for her, that Jesus made me to be. I believe and know that “Power of Prayer”, is a powerful tool that Christians have to overcome life’s difficulties. So I ask you to please pray for my daughter and I that we are shown and blessed to receive the great calling Jesus has for our lives. Thank you for this article. I know God lead me to you this morning. I will also be praying for all of you,

    1. I am so very sorry you are going through this difficult time, Jessica. I am praying for you … asking God to continue to hold you close and to honor your faith and answer your prayer as you’ve requested. May He bless you and your daughter as you trust His love.

  59. This is one of,if not the best thing I’ve stumbled upon while searching for styles on Pinterest (I’m a fashion designer),and I must say that my spirit has been lifted and reawakened. God does mind blowing things cos nothing is too much for him yo do,after all, he made everything. I’m currently trusting Him for a miracle and I’m praising my way up to his throne cos I know and believe that it’s a done deal.
    Thanks Deb,and may God continue to use you to touch more lives.

    1. Frances, I’m so glad it blessed you! Thank you so much for visiting and for your very kind encouragement. What an awesome God we serve! God bless you!

  60. I’m really going though a had time in my marriage, relationship right now, my soon to be husband breakup with me, this is really tough on me, I have been fasting and praying to God to make him change his mind, and to return my husband love to me again, but it seems God is silence on me, I’m still on this same prayer bcoz I want God to change his mind and touch his heart for me, I want God to make things right again, I want God to make impossibility possible in my life, I want God to change my story, I’m putting all my trust and hope in God, because I believe God never fails, he always kept his promises and he will do it for me, in jesus Amen

  61. I am so blessed to have found this post. Thank you Deb . My life has totally fallen apart starting with the loss of my oldest son 5 years ago. Then my husband deserted me after 23 years. I lost my home and everything I have loved all these years. My youngest son can’t handle all of this and has become estranged from me. I haven’t seen or talked to him in 3 years. I am disabled and am in trouble financially. I love God. I know I would have never have made it this far without his grace. I just need prayer to be able to put this all behind me and begin living again. Thank you and God bless you. .

    1. Regina, my heart is breaking for you! You have been through an incredible about of pain. I can’t begin to imagine how hard this must be. I’m praying for you and asking God to hold you close and assure you of His loving presence. I’m asking Him to send people to help and encourage you. And I’m asking Him to meet every need today and in the days and months ahead. God bless you!

  62. Thanks Deb, just the prayers I needed at this time and so bless to also found your post. My God has been so gracious to me all my life and I know Nothing is Impossible to Him. I needed these prayers to remind me of His Presence, Blessings & Love.
    Needing prayers that my relationship of 7 years will go peacefully & praying that I will find another companion/friend to enjoy life.
    Praying that he will continue to meet my needs the rest of my life here on earth.
    Blessings to you Deb!

    1. Thank you, Julie! I need the reminder of the Lord’s presence and power frequently. What a blessing to have His Word and the truth of His promises. Asking God to be with you and bless you!

  63. Glad I found this. One of my son’s n daughter were just fighting n to tip it off my spouse n I have been arguing, I really needed this. Thank you

    1. I’m so sorry, Vanessa! It’s always hard when a family struggles with conflict. I’m so glad this blessed you. I’m asking God to be with you all and grant you His peace and fill you with His love. God bless you!

  64. Yes! Asking, seeking & knocking even if we’ve done it a thousand times!! Because He is faithful! Glad we’re on the same journey, sister!

  65. Hello, I’m 20 yrs old. I feel so ashamed asking this but would you pls reach out to my father telling him I’m deeply sorry. Whenever I’m sick that’s the only time I reach out to him and even when I give my life to Christ, the next day I fall back into sin. My heart tells me when I sin against my father but I can’t help it. My friends at school would laugh at me if I show any sign of repentance, whenever I met him to solve a problem he helps me without I not being appreciative but he still kept helping me but after i lost my virginity due to excessive watching of porn now I’ve ran out of grace, I’m lost, I’m sick, I’m an addict to porn and masturbation. Every time I promise myself it’d be the last but yet I can’t seem to control it. Can you pls tell my father his rebellious son wants him back and thanks for this message. Thank you once again

    1. I’m sorry for the struggle you are facing, Michael! I’m praying for you and asking God to give you the strength you need. You never run out of His grace. He loves you and wants to help you. The Father is always willing to welcome His prodigal children home. God bless you!

  66. Thank you Deb for your blog and posting!
    I’ve never responded personally to a blogger before, but I desperately need Jesus to heal me emotionally. I am 57-married, and am a born again saved by his blood believer since late 20’s, yet I struggle with resting in God’s love. Never had a loving Father figure or any loving male in my entire life. My husband loves Jesus and me, but is very quiet and withdrawn and not affectionate or warm. I believe by faith because i love God’s Word that God DOES love me, but it’s not a daily emotional reality. Was molested as a child so I’m sure that isn’t helping.
    I’ve begged and pleaded with Jesus to heal me emotionally so I can rest in His love and not struggle so to believe in His love for me. I’m very tired of try to believe. I’m praying Jesus will heal me emotionally so I can not only rest in His love, but be empowered by His love and then flow out to others.
    Would you pray for me?
    Thank you,
    Mary Kaye

    1. Mary Kaye, I’m so glad you visited and I’m happy to pray for you! I’m so sorry for all you’ve been through in your life. I know God wants to heal and deliver you … blessing you with His peace. May He give you hope, peace, and encouragement! God bless you!

  67. Please Jesus redeem my son, thru you all things are possible. I give it to you and I trust in you that all things are possible. Please father do what only you can do. Please help my son by Your Grace. Amen.

    Thank you,

  68. Hi Deb, your prayer blessed me so much. Would you please pray for my grandson whose going through a very difficult time. Please pray for my family also. Thank you so much

    1. Thank you for reaching out, Dawn! I am praying for your grandson and your family … asking God to meet every need and pour out His love over your family. God bless you!

  69. I have been praying for decades (since I was a little girl, really) for a house of my own – now of course, for my husband of nearly 40 years and me. We are immigrants and not making very much per month, and a VERY average house here with no land is a million dollars. A decent place for us would be probably 3 – 5 million! (Crazy, yes?) I don’t want to live in a shack, I know I am a child of the Living God, and we are farming folk, originally. I just want a garden and trees and be able to have animals, which are not allowed most places here. In the natural, there is no way! Of course God can do it. If He can heal – and He does – money, a house, land, is easy! I know that. But we have lost two (three in the case of my husband) countries to communism, and so many times it all seems hopeless, and it is hard when I think of all those prayers and years. Please pray and perhaps give me a way to forget the past failures? Thanks

    1. Heather, thank you so much for visiting and for taking the time to share your story. I’m praying for you … asking God to meet every need as He gives you His peace and strength each day! God bless you!

  70. Thank you for your encouragement. I’m currently praying for the reconciliation of a dear friendship that has been attacked by the enemy through my friend’s family, and has led to him currently having no contact with me. It’s very sad and I think he is believing lies about me too, but God has made it clear he wants this friendship restored and your article has given me new strength to keep praying.

    Your prayers would be welcome.

    Thank you.

    1. I’m so sorry, Stephen! That is very painful. I am glad to pray for you and ask God to make it possible for your friendship to be healed and restored!

    1. Hi, I will pray for you and your family. God is great and He will not forsake us. He is powerful and almighty. In all you do just continue to pray to Him as He will give you the desires of your heart. Remember to have Constant communication with Him through prayer and reading the Bible. That’s how you will hear His voice. I pray that He keeps you and pours down his mercy and grace and fills you life with his Blessings. He is a God of Love and He hears you.

  71. I love prayers so much!
    who I am, what I have and what I am yet to have is just because of the grace and mercy of the Lord!
    I am grateful I have found this site (Deb), though I still need prayers for my family, career paths, my job and a good partner.
    please I beg you in the name of Jesus to pray for me.

    1. Patricia, I’m so glad to have you visit! And I am happy to pray for you! May God encourage you and fill you with His peace as you trust Him in the days ahead. God bless you!

  72. God is good All the time! And Nothing is impossible to Him! Thank you for these wonderful prayers that encourages everyone to have Faith & Trust on the Lord Almighty.
    Please pray for my family, specially my youngest Richard who has a lot of anger in his heart, to free him from this & return back his loving relationship with his sister.

  73. Thank you, I needed some prayer guidance tonight. Bless you. I could sure use some prayers to finally find the strength, courage and “smarts” about how best to end my very toxic marriage which has already caused so much damage to my son and to me but my son is having emotional issues and is unable to process this. My husband pretends nothing is wrong and refuses to see the damage being done to our child by his bizarre and unreasonable behavior. Please pray for us. Bless you.

  74. good morning,

    my spirit was down today in the morning, i’m like God don’t here my prayers, but once i read on Ephisians 3 i started to understand that God is with me.

    thank you so much
    Refilwe Malesa

    1. Refilwe, I’m so sorry you are struggling. God is with you! I’m praying for you today and asking God to hold you close and continue to lift you up with His promises. God bless you!

  75. Pray for me, I am not strong enough to fight everyday battles with a smile. There is so much I want in my life for me and my family, I just want my Faith to always stay strong and want the best life I can Have, God knows my heart and my circumstances. Thank you

  76. Asking for prayers for my children, they are on the wrong path hanging out with the wrong people and doing and using things they are not supposed to. I am at the point that I feel desperate thinking God doesn’t hear my prayers. I know he does and I’ve just being trying to surrender all my problems and my worries to him but it is just so hard.
    Please, please help me pray for my children. I appreciate your prayers beforehand!!

    1. Mary, I am praying for your family and especially for your children. It’s hard to watch our children have free-will and make less than wise choices. I know God hears your prayers and I’m adding my prayer that He will work on their hearts and minds and surround them people who love and trust Him.

  77. I have been married to my husband for 4 yrs. We both have a son who is fighting drug and alcohol dependency. They have both been to rehab and have both relapsed. They struggle to get their lives under control and it is a struggle for them. My son faces many legal issues. My son has a child that he has not seen in several months because of his relapsing. When high my son has done some things that he may be facing jail time he’s lost his motivation his interest in just about everything and though he struggles to stay clean it takes one to two years for your body to feel normal again without substances so both of them struggle with depression and anxiety anger both of them know Jesus both of them have given their hearts to him but they have to give him their lives and this is the part that is so hard and this is my prayer for them. And I’m asking today that you pray for both these boys I pray that God will give them the strength each day and will speak to them every day because I know Satan does and I pray that God’s voice will be louder. I pray that God will bring them complete wholeness Spirit mind body and soul that they will completely let go of the past get through what they must face and get it behind them and have the life that God wants them to have for the rest of their life and take away any and all desire for anything negative in their lives.

    1. I am so sorry, Paula! Your family is walking a very difficult journey. I’m lifting you up in prayer asking God to draw your sons close to Himself … giving them strength and courage to be able to do all they need to remain healthy. God bless you!

  78. Lindsey: Thank you for this article.
    Please pray for my teenaged daughter who suffers from Major Depressive Disorder and Generalised Anxiety Disorder. It’s heartbreaking for a mum to see her child become like this.

    1. I’m so sorry, Lindsey. It is heartbreaking to watch our children suffer. I am praying for her and for your momma’s heart! God be with and bless you and your family!

  79. I have been blessed with your message. Am going through a very difficult time in my life. Lost my job for nine months and problems seem to be multiplying. Sometimes I feel like ending it all by suicide but am comforted so I will keep praying and waiting on the Lord

    1. Oh, Edwin, I am so very sorry! PLEASE reach out to someone close by … someone you can talk to in person. I am praying for you and asking God to direct you to the job He has already prepared for you and that He will be your encouragement and strength! Thank you so much for sharing your comment with us and allowing us to pray for you!
