Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ Who

strengthens me.”
Righteous God, I need Your strength today and every day. Of myself, I can do nothing,
but I can do all things only through Jesus Christ, Who will strengthen me. I do need this
strength almost every day, especially the older I get. You can uphold me by Your
righteous right hand, and only by Your Spirit can I endure. When my own strength fails,
Yours takes over, and I thank You for having access to You through Jesus Christ, in
Whose precious name I pray. Amen.
Psalm 28:8 “The Lord is the strength of his people; he
is the saving refuge of his anointed.”
God my Father, we as the children of God are not our own source of strength, and that’s
good because I personally don’t have a lot of strength left after turning 60-some years
old. Thankfully, You, God, are the source of our strength and can keep us going in ways
that we cannot of ourselves. I depend on You every day, and this is what You really
desire, anyway. Help us, Your beloved children, to focus on You, the object of our
strength and the source of our salvation. In Jesus Christ’s great name I pray. Amen.
Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; be not
dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I
will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right
hand.”
Oh Creator God, my Father, I do tend to fear. Please forgive me when I do. I also am
dismayed at times by the heavy burdens of life, so thank You for this reminder of Yours
from Your Word, that I have no reason to fear or be dismayed. I recognize that I am my
own worst enemy. Help me to know that You are my God and You have promised to
strengthen me and help me. By Your right hand, the hand of sovereignty and strength,
You uphold me, for which I am eternally thankful. I pray this to You, oh Great Father,
through Your Son’s awesome name, Jesus Christ. Amen.
Second Corinthians 12:9-10 “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. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content
with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions,
and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am
strong.”
Father God, when I am weak, You are strong, and Your grace is enough for me, as Your
power is perfected in my weakness. So, when I am feeling especially weak, I must realize
only then am I strong because of You, for I have nothing to boast about except my
weakness, but that’s how Christ’s power can rest upon me. Only in You can I endure
because I have no chance without You, and in the mighty name of the King of kings and
Lord of lords, Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
