Prayers For Hope During Difficulties And Afflictions

Are you tired of giving up? Do you feel like there is no hope for your life? Do you want to find a way out but don’t know where to start? Well, before we continue, let me ask: have you prayed yet today? If not, I recommend starting with prayer. It’s the one thing that will never let us down. Prayer has been proven time and time again as a source of healing and restoration for those who are lost in their lives. And it doesn’t matter how serious the situation may be, it   can never be too difficult for God   to handle if you put your hope in   Him through prayers.

As the Bible depicted in the book of Isaiah 40:31, “But they that wait upon the Lord will renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint.”It is essential to hope in the Lord as He would uphold and strengthen you through the challenges of life. That’s why you have the opportunity to hope and hope for the best.

Also, Romans 12:12 says that“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”In this Bible verse, Paul vividly explains the three crucial ingredients for life transformation. 

Scripture Based Prayers For Hope 

Joyful in hope

This means to have an unwavering assurance that God is the author of our life and the finisher of our lives, and our hope should continually rest in Him at all times, and we should rest assured that our hope to attain glory in all of our tribulations.

Patient in affliction

 Patience is a virtue that we should all possess, especially when it comes to life difficulties.

A patient person may have less stress and worry about their turbulence situation as they are able to remain calm in the face of adversity because they know there’s always a better tomorrow for them.

A patient person will not be quickly bothered but hopefully wait for a better time, having the assurance that God who cannot lie will make true one day no matter how long everything He has written about their lives.

When affliction arises, keep your hope alive, complain less and pray more.
