Prayers for Strength

This page is part of our sample prayers section

This prayer is based on Ephesians 3:16-19, where Paul prays for the Ephesians for  strengthening of their "inner man."  The Holy Spirit is the one that accomplishes that strengthening:

"Father God, I confess that I am a sinner, and that I am weak in the face of temptation. Please forgive me for my sins in name of Jesus Christ. Lord, I put my trust and strength in You. I ask that you will strengthen me with Your might through your Spirit in my inner man today. I pray that Jesus would dwell in my heart and I believe that He will by faith. I ask for your wisdom and understanding concerning Jesus’ love for me. I thank you for what Jesus did for me on the cross, and I desire to walk resurrected with Him in obedience, joy and love today. Please fill me with your fullness through Your Holy Spirit today. To You be all the glory, honor and praise. Amen."

"Lord God, I thank you for your promise of being with me at all times.  Thank you that with You, I do not have to fear anything.   Lord I thank you that you will strengthen me now and help me through this struggle; that you will uphold me with your righteous right hand.  Please send your Holy Spirit to help me withstand the adversary.  In Jesus Name I pray, Amen."
(based on Isaiah 41:10

"Lord God, I pray that you will now strengthen and purify my heart, so that I will be blameless and holy in your presence.  Lord I thank you that even though I have ignored you and lived a life filled with sin, you have promised to strengthen me so that I may counted as righteous in your sight.  In Jesus Name I pray, Amen." (based on 1 Thessalonians 3:13Isaiah 45:5)

"Dear Jesus, I place my hope and trust in you.   I pray  you will now strengthen me as you have promised, that I may stand against the enemy (Satan) and his forces of evil.  Thank you for renewing my strength, enabling me to soar on wings like the eagles, to run and not grow weary, to walk and not be faint.  Lord please be my strength today in keeping my thoughts pure and obedient to Jesus Christ, keeping my eyes free from pornography and lust.  Thank you, Lord Jesus, Amen." (based on Isaiah 40:31)
