When you’re feeling weary, it can feel like you’ve been left to navigate life all on your own. You might find yourself longing for rest in the midst of your struggle yet unable to locate real relief. Thankfully, however, we have the Bible to turn to for guidance and comfort when we’re facing hardship. Below are three biblical prayers you can use when you’re feeling overwhelmed and worn out.
First, there is Psalm 55:22, which reads, “Cast your cares on the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous be shaken.” This prayer reminds us that no matter what we are going through, the Lord is with us and will never leave our side. He is always ready to take our anxieties and worries and provide us with peace that surpasses understanding.
Second, there is Isaiah 40:29-31, which reads, “He gives power to the weary and strengthens the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” This prayer reassures us that even when we are feeling worn out and depleted, God has the power and strength to help us press forward.
Finally, there is Psalm 121:1-2 which reads, “I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made Heaven and Earth!” This prayer reminds us that no matter how heavy our burdens may be, the only one who can truly provide us with the help we need is our Lord and Savior. His love and grace are enough to carry us through any situation, no matter how difficult.
When you’re feeling weary, it can be easy to feel lost and alone in your struggle. But these three biblical prayers remind us that God is always by our side and is ready to provide us with strength, peace, and hope. So turn to these prayers in your time of need, and find comfort knowing that our Lord is always there for us.
