5 Scriptures to Pray through Pain and SufferingFeb 16, 2022
Here are some Scripture prayers you can pull out of your collection when you are praying God's Word into your own, or into the hearts and lives of the people you know, who are clinging to Truth in their pain and suffering.
2 Corinthians 12:9 ESV
"But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
Father, Your Word says in 2 Corinthians 12:9 that Your grace is enough for me. Let me boast in my weakness created by this situation, so that I will experience Christ's power resting on me. Let others see the power of Christ resting on me so that they too can know that You are enough for them as well.
Reflect on the truth of this word with this worship song Same God
Philippians 4:19 ESV
"And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus."

Spirit of the Living God, remind me that Your riches in glory have been secured by Jesus Christ and they are stored for the sole purpose of making certain that I have what I need when I need it. Thank You for Your glorious, sufficient, more than enough provision.

Oh Lord God, You are able! You are able to make all grace abound to me (or name of person your are praying for)! I declare that I have everything I need at all times. I praise Your Name and rest in the confidence that I will abound in every aspect of the work You've called me to. I confess my lack of confidence that is really just a form of unbelief. And I choose to replace my unbelief with faith that proclaims, My God is able, and I am able too!

You will rejoice over me with gladness, now and when Your salvation is complete. In the meantime You will quiet me with Your love and when the time is right You will celebrate over ME with loud singing!
