When we are at our weakest it’s hard to pick ourselves up and continue – that’s when we need prayers for strength that will sustain us. It is also a time to hang on to the scriptures we’ve learnt over the years, clinging on to every promise we’ve heard from God. For example in Isaiah 41:10 He says:
“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ (Isaiah 41:10)
If you are able, it’s reassuring to confess scriptures like these that build our faith and lift our hearts. However, there are times in our lives when we are so down it’s hard to pray, confess the word or even hang on, on our own. It’s at times like these that we need a body of believers around us who will encourage us and intercede for our situations whatever they may be. That’s why it’s so important to be part of a local church!
If you feel like you are going through the ‘Valley of the shadow of death’, we read about in Psalm 23, remember it is only a shadow and it won’t last forever. You are not alone. God has not forsaken you and what you are going through others have been through too.

We all face times of trial and God doesn’t expect us to go through these by ourselves. He encourages us to bear one another’s burdens. So when you are feeling down don’t isolate yourself from others as one is inclined to do. Rather get yourself to church and receive the prayers for strength that you need. Never forget, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1-3)
You will also be greatly encouraged as you watch Christian Television especially LIVE prayer meetings targeted at praying for viewers.
