Prayer For Trusting God’s Plan

Prayer for trusting god’s plan:If you have every found yourself asking the questions: How do I strengthen my faith in God? How do you walk in faith? You are in good company! So many of us find ourselves in places where we feel like the Father in Mark 9:24 who says: “I do believe, help me overcome my unbelief.” This scripture hits most of us because we know what we believe and yet we still find ourselves in places where doubts co-exist in the midst of our big faith. For many years I had no trouble believing the power of the resurrection. There was nothing that could cause me to waver in this faith, and yet, when it came to believing God could move in the little things in life. I did not have the same trust and belief. I knew that God COULD, but my doubt resided in the pace where I doubted he would because of some personal flaw on my part! I want to encourage you that praying for faith in the spaces that you struggle does not make you weak. Prayer is meant to be a conversation with the Father and we are told in 1 Peter 5:7 that we should cast our cares on the Lord. That includes those thoughts and feelings of doubt. The desire for increased faith, and the spaces in life where we need God to move in our lives and we are believing BIG for his miraculous hand.

There are many scriptures that talk about faith, but what scriptures can we pray to God as his living breathing word into and over our lives? Well I like to start with the promises of God. These are the things that he said that he would do and be in our lives, and because the Lord can not lie, when you pray the scriptures and speak the power of his word using promises your faith is encouraged. Here are a few scriptures promises you can pray into the situations of life where you need renewed, or improved faith.

For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. Isaiah 41:13

In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:6

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24

I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love. Ephesians 3:16-17

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. James 1:6

“‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Mark 9:23

If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. Matthew 21:22

The Prayer of Faith From James 5:13-20

Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. 

Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again, and heaven gave rain, and the earth bore its fruit. 

My brothers, if anyone among you wanders from the truth and someone brings him back, let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.

Example Prayer of Faith

Dear Heavenly Father, You are the Creator of all things and You sustain all of life. I come to you, acknowledging that your will is best and that your plan is far greater than any I could ever ask for or imagine. Lord, I come to you with troubles that are weighing on my heart and the hearts of many believers. God, I know that you carry all burdens, and I ask that you share your yoke with us know during this difficult time.

God, you are a God of healing. If it is in your will, I ask that you heal (fill in the blank), but I know that whether you choose to heal them or not, that everything will work out according to your purpose. May I seek you in good times and difficult and learn to trust you more every day. May you increase, and I decrease, as I learn to become more like you. In Jesus’ holy and powerful name, Amen.

Prayer for Steadfast Faith

Lord God, heavenly Father, we are poor, miserable sinners. We know your will, but we are too weak to fulfill it. Our flesh and blood hold us back, and our enemy the devil will not leave us in peace.

Pour your Holy Spirit in our hearts, that with steadfast faith we may cling to your Son Jesus Christ, find comfort in his passion and death, believe the forgiveness of sin through him and in willing obedience to your will lead holy lives on earth until by your grace we depart from this world of sorrow and obtain eternal life; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one true God, now and forever.

Lead Us to Grow in Faith

Almighty and eternal God, by your Holy Spirit you have revealed to us the gospel of your Son, Christ Jesus. Awaken our hearts that we may sincerely receive your Word and not make light of it, or hear it without fruit as did your people long ago.

Instead lead us to fear you and daily grow in faith in your mercy and finally through your Son Christ Jesus, obtain eternal salvation; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one true God, now and forever.
