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,

Amen.

  1. Hello, I’m a 11 year old girl who is worried that they might not do well in secondary school. Please pray for me. I feel like I am moving further and further away from Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I am really worried about my schooling and if I might not go to heaven because I havent been reading the Bible often. I have repented to all of my sins and I know that God and Jesus have forgiven me. But I still keep sinning and worrying that I might be a lukewarm Christian. I want to give my full commitment to God. Please pray or me.

    From, Brooke.

    • Dear Brooke,
      You are a daughter of God! He will not turn you away because you haven’t been reading the Bible. Read the Bible because it is good for you. Read the Word to know Jesus better. But it is not an obligation. Remember, we are all sinners. Nobody goes to heaven for being perfect. We go there because of what Jesus did and does for us. We go to heaven since God loves us.
      If you can, please find a kind, wise person to talk about these things. You are young and have your whole life ahead of you. Don’t worry so much! It is clear that you have a heart that wants to please God. Let your heart love and be loved by Jesus.
      I will be praying for you!
