Praise God, Our Encourager

“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you.  I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

God, we praise You that being an encourager is a part of Your nature. You never leave us when we are discouraged or at a loss, but You promise to work on our behalf to and uphold us in every circumstance. When we find ourselves feeling discouraged, we ask You to shift our focus to You, our God and our strength.


Pray for Hearts to Encourage Others

“Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.” Proverbs 12:25

Lord, open our eyes to see those around us who are weighed down and feeling anxious and give us the words to speak encouragement to them. Through those words, let them see and feel Your love for them.


Pray for Hearts to Be Encouraged by You

“So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.” Romans 8:1-2

We pray for those we encounter to find the eternal encouragement by experiencing freedom and forgiveness through acceptance of You as their Savior. Let them know that they are seen in the fear, anxiety, ________________, and You have provided freedom and joy in You.  In Jesus name, Amen.

“Encouragement is awesome. It can actually change the course of someone’s day.” Chuck Swindoll, pastor, author and founder of Insight for Living radio program


Mission: to see every school covered in prayer so that the power and presence of God are experienced in our communities.
