Prayer for Incredible when You Barely Feel Credible
Updated: Feb 19
Are you in the middle of a tough situation? God sees and He cares. Pray this with me and let Him spark new hope in you.
Here I am again, Father. You know what’s on my heart. Thank you for understanding how unremarkable I feel.
Come in like a bulldozer, Lord, and plow my heart. Make my path straight.
I need you in a desperate way. You alone are my heart’s desire and I can’t make a move, a confident move, without your leading. I rely on your goodness and your strength to put one foot in front of another.
Sometimes it feels like I’m moving through molasses, like my thoughts and emotions are stuck in mud, fixated on the negative and hopeless. Break me free, Lord. Blast me out of my ugly pondering of broken dreams. Blow away my stale thinking. Propel me into the possible and even the impossible. Elevate my faith and my thoughts as I focus on you. Forgive my lack of trust and help my unbelief.
You are a good God. An incredible God.
The enemy wants me to believe you don’t care, that you aren’t concerned for my well-being or those I love. He says you won’t come to my rescue. But he is a liar and the father of all lies. I reject the enemy and all his deceit, in Jesus’ name.
John 8:44 says about our enemy: “He’s been a murderer right from the start! He never stood with the One who is the true Prince, for he’s full of nothing but lies—lying is his native tongue. He is a master of deception and the father of lies!” (The Passion Translation)
Your word, Lord, is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. In you alone are the words of life. I trust You.
Psalm 119:109 says, “Truth’s shining light guides me in my choices and decisions; the revelation of your word makes my pathway clear.” (The Passion Translation)
When I am afraid, I rest in you. When I feel alone, I run to you. When I need a friend, I take your hand. When I need hope, I rest in your presence. When I need joy, I gaze on your glory.
Open my eyes to the beauty of your creation. Fill me with wonder. Illuminate every dark spot in my soul with the light of your love.
I choose to believe for the unbelievable and press for the incredible. Because only in you, the ordinary becomes extraordinary. The natural becomes supernatural. The impossible becomes possible.
My hope and my confidence are in you, Lord.
In the mighty name of Jesus, AMEN.
