11 Powerful Prayers for Help

Isaiah 30:18-19 tells us about how God waits for us to come to him when we are in distress. Everyone needs help every once in a while. We have so many limitations as humans and it is not uncommon to seek help from time to time.

There are moments in life where you feel so helpless and sad as though there is nothing you can do to put things right. There are also times where you believe you are so close to achieving a goal that the slightest push will get you over the line but you just can’t seem to get it.

You may be struggling in your education, marriage, relationship, life, or workplace to the extent that you only feel that only divine intervention can help matters.  Prayers for help are not something to feel ashamed about. Help should always be welcomed.

Jesus asked for help from his father a lot. Praying to him every time he needed a miracle or divine intervention was his way of asking his father for help. We should learn to do the same. God loves us and he will not turn us away when we go to him for help.

When his death approached Jesus was praying one night away from his disciples to seek help from God. God strengthened him and he went on to fulfill the promise God made through his prophet Isaiah.

We all have purposes in our lives. God wants us to fulfill a certain promise he has made. We are his instruments. He uses us to answer the prayers of his children. When you feel stuck in whatever life journey you are embarking on, feel free to ask Him for help and he will answer.

Help us lead them back to the light that we raised them
Help us show them that this world holds nothing for them
Help us bring them back to your glory

Asking God for help makes him feel like you feel when your child comes to you for help. It makes you feel powerful like you can help them solve their problems. God is our father and he made us for his glory. He does not enjoy our suffering. He is always extending a hand to you. See him and reach out to him and he is always willing to help you (Gen.49:25).
