We all go through challenging times, and we can get so lost in our upset that we forget to pray or ask for help. In Psalm 13, David cries, “How long, Lord? How long will you ignore me?” It can feel as though God has forgotten you, as though you aren’t worth anything. However, if you read the rest of the psalm, you’ll see that deliverance comes. God loves you and created you with a purpose.
Today, I’d like to share some supportive prayers based on scriptures to help during times of darkness. You can pray for others who are struggling, too. God desires to bring you through your challenges, so exercise your faith in His Word—even when you don’t feel like it. • God, I cast my burden on You. I know You will take care of me. (Psalm 55:22). • God, I know You are with me through these murky waters. The river will not consume me. The flames will not burn me, because You are by my side. You protect and sustain me. (Isaiah 43:2). • I know You hear my cries, and I wait patiently for You. I know You will show up. You’ll pull me out of this slimy pit of mud, clean me off, set me upon a joyful rock, and I’ll be singing songs of praise to You, God! (Psalm 40:1–3). Darling, you will rejoice once again. God won’t let you down. There’s hope and help in God’s Word, and He’s always loving you. *** Good Morning, Lord
I pray that you will lift up my mood, my spirit, and my outlook. Help me see and feel your light, please. Please hold me and reassure me that I am loved. *** “But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me.” PSALM 13:5
