10 Mighty Prayers For Difficult Situations

Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.

1 Peter 4:12-13

People sometimes talk about tests and trials as being ways to prepare you for the future. When you do not suffer to get things you normally take them for granted and do not truly appreciate them. Others also believe that the strength in your character is produced when you overcome many challenges and build a strong resistance to them.

The text is telling us to expect difficulty in our lives because those are the situations that truly test our abilities. It also tells us not to be sad when these things happen because we are in Christ. Being in Christ means that we are assured of victory no matter how testing or difficult our situations may be. The bigger the obstacle, the bigger your opportunity to test your strength and come out on top.

Sometimes you go into situations that look dire. You may lose all you hold dear and have nowhere to turn. These things may be confusing to you because they might make no sense. There will be times when it will seem like everything is crumbling around you.

However, as Christians, we need to muster up the courage and strength to keep going because we know that there is glory in the end. When you are assured of inevitable victory you must be determined not to quit in the middle. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other no matter how bleak it looks in front of you.

When you fall you have to rise again and keep limping forward like a tired racer who is almost at the finish line. Our victory will be great and we will remember our sufferings no more.

Healing prayer for disease

The measure of a person’s strength is the level of the situation they can overcome. Don’t be scared by the magnitude of the problem but be comforted by the power of the God you serve. You have already been promised victory so you need not fear.

There will come a day when you will speak testimonies to people concerning what you went through. When the devil whispers words of discouragement in your ears remember the words of God that say that the situation you are going through is only temporary.

In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory, and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
