Prayer for self-confidence

(a prayer for courage in myself)

Who am I Lord?
Call my name and help me walk with confidence, redeemed.
Who am I Lord?
Released and free, not chained with fear and regret.
Who am I Lord?
Son or daughter of the King who is most high.
Who am I Lord?
Mistakes and faults fall like dust, as your grace lifts me high.
Who am I Lord?
I am above, all seated with the Son of God.
Who am I Lord?
Unique and precious, called by name and made new and whole.
Who am I Lord?
The one who walks with Jesus spirit deep inside.
Who am I Lord?
No less, no more, just as I am, I need not hide.
Who am I Lord?
It is enough to stand in peace before my King.

Prayer for Mental Strength

A prayer for mental strength

A prayer for encouragement and strength


You are the wind in my sails
You guide me as I steer and find direction.
You give me the strength to keep on going.
You watch over me as I navigate stormy seas.
You are the harbour where I stop for rest.
You are my encourager when I lose hope.
You are the lighthouse that keeps my path safe.
You are with me always.

Thank you.

Prayer For Quiet Confidence

O God of peace, who hast taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and in confidence shall be our strength: By the might of thy Spirit lift us, we pray thee, to thy presence, where we may be still and know that thou art God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
