Prayer for Job 3

Choose Verse

Heavenly Father, thank You for the book of Job which gives such amazing insight into the spiritual battle that continues to rage in the heavenlies. Keep me from temptation, deliver me from the wiles of the devil and help to stand fast in the faith, no matter what difficulties I may have to face. I pray that I would always maintain my own integrity in my God and Saviour, but keep me from any religiosity and legalism, and prevent me from being opinionated about the difficulties that others may be facing. Give me discernment to know how to help and encourage my brothers and sisters in Christ and may I do all for Your glory, in Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

“After this opened Job his mouth, and cursed his day.”
(Job 3:1)
Source: Verse of the day for Job 3:1

Heavenly Father, I am amazed at the wonderful way that Job refused to deny You... even when he was beset by the most terrible circumstance any man could have to face. Thank You that you ignore those times when we too have been foolish enough to regret our life or wish it away - because we are in the midst of great difficulty or depressed by the circumstances of life. Thank You that You know the end from the beginning and through Job's distress You brought him to a deeper knowledge and an exquisite understanding of Who You are. Forgive the times I have said things without thinking. Help me to keep the eyes of my heart on Jesus and keep me trusting You in every eventuality of life - knowing that You are dealing with me... and with all Your children, with eternity in view - just as You were with Your servant Job. Thank You in Jesus' name, AMEN.

“There the wicked cease from troubling; and there the weary be at rest.”

Prayer To Keep Me From Fear When Times Are Hard

Lord Jesus I come to You because when I look at the hard times that we are facing – my heart seems to fail as I don’t know which way to turn – except to You. Thank You that You have always been there for me and thank You that you have always come through with Your help in time of need - always at the right time and always in the right way.

Keep me from fear of what tomorrow may bring, knowing that I do not need to be afraid or fearful, because You have promised supply all my needs according to Your riches in mercy.

Thank YOU Lord, for Your Word which has so many beautiful truths and wonderful promises …that You are always there to help when times are hard – and thank You for this scripture from the Bible, which someone gave me today: do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Thank You for this lovely truth and for the many promises that You have given to all Your children. May my heart rest in You Lord and keep me from fear in these difficult times, in Jesus name I pray,

“For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.”
(Job 3:25)
