Prayer for a difficult situation

Nobody wants to suffer. Nobody likes to feel hurt and pain. One thing that happens sometimes when things get difficult is that people move away from God. They might even get mad at him. So they stop praying. They put down their Bible. They might not go to church anymore. And eventually their heart grows cold. 

One of the problems we might face is that we want fast, easy solutions. But life and faith don’t work that way. We are complex creatures. Life is messy sometimes. But it’s also beautiful and worth living, even if we struggle.

Jesus shows us a more excellent way. He shows us how love, faith, and forgiveness can lead to miraculous changes. It may take time, and it may not go as we planned, but God’s plan always shines through somehow.

So double down on your faith when things get tough. Don’t set any rigid expectations. Instead, take the time to seek God. He will reveal his truths to you in due time. Have confidence that God’s Spirit is constantly at work. Let him surprise you with what you will learn about him and about yourself. Let God’s love speak to you.

Prayer for a difficult situation

O merciful Lord,

I’m facing difficulty. It’s so hard for me. I feel lost and confused. I just want to run away.

Help me, O Lord, I need you. Don’t let me grow cold. Instead, let me grow closer to you than ever.

Remove the obstacles and change the hearts. Let me love as long as it takes.

Your Word has told me, and I believe. Christ did not reject me. Instead, he bled for me. He took away my shame.

Tell my heart again, O Lord, I am your beloved child. Christ, my Rock, my Savior, may his Spirit prepare me come what may.

In Jesus name I pray,
