Prayer for Strength

One of my good friends shared this special prayer with me recently and I just had to share it as it definitely struck a chord with me and made me really think about some of the things I need to do in my life and some areas that I need to work on within myself in the future. I know SO many people in my life that are struggling in their lives with varying obstacles and challenges and no matter how big or how small this prayer definitely reminds you that the Lord will provide, he will never give you more then you can handle and to give up your burdens to him and he will take care of you. Psalms 55:22: "Give your burdens to the Lord. He will not permit the Godly to slip nor fall."

A Prayer for Strength

My Lord God, through whom strength is made perfect in weakness, I pray to you, give me the strength I need.
You have said, that to your children who have no might, you will increase strength.
I am weak. Bless me with a measure of strength, as may be sufficient for me.
When I am tempted by evil, deliver me, by granting me the power to overcome it.
When my daily work is too hard for me, give me the strength to be able to do it.
If my burden oppresses me beyond my bearing, lighten my load, that my strength may be equal to it.
You have helped many, I beg you to help me.
Thank you my Lord
