10 Bible Verses of Encouragement about PRAYER - plus Free Printable



We all need encouragement and the best place to go is to the Bible.

In this blog Post I have tried to gather some Bible passages or Bible verses which will encourage us all around the topic of Prayer






I do believe that we should not just grab a verse and read it on its own but we should always lift our bibles and read a passage of scripture to make sure that we know the real meaning and context of each of the verses we are putting our trust in. 

I pray that you will do the same and only use this list to guide you as to where you may find help.



So here are 10 Bible verses or short passages for us to turn to in times when we need to be encouraged about 
PRAYER




1.   Matthew 7 v 7     

"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."

Persevere in prayer.




 


2.   Luke 6 v 27-28


Do not simply pray for loved ones, family and friends but also pray for those whom you find hard to love.


"But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you." 








3.   John 16 v 24


"Until now you have asked nothing in my name.  Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full."




We are privileged that we have the Lord to pray to for all things. 





4.   Acts 2 v 42 

"And they continued steadfastly in the Apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and prayers." 



Encouragement here for us to continue in prayer as we also continue to observe good teaching, fellowship with other Christians and partake together in the Lord's Supper just as the first believers did.







5.   Romans 12 v 12

"rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulationcontinuing steadfastly in prayer"



In every situation we must be resolute and firm in our prayer life.






6.   Psalm 34 v 17


"When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles." 




What a statement to hold on to! 

 

The Lord hears us and delivers us when we cry out to Him - this is a personal relationship

 




7.   Philippians 4 v 6-7

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."





We do not have to worry just bring it all to God in prayer. 




8.   1 Thessalonians 5 v 16-18


Be in an attitude of prayer, always ready to speak to God when we are rejoicing and when we are in need and always giving thanks. 





"Rejoice evermore,
Pray without ceasing.
 In everything give thanks:
for this is the will of God
 in Christ Jesus concerning you"






9.   1 Timothy 2 v 1







"Therefore I exhort first of all
that supplications, prayers, intercessions,
 and giving of thanks
be made for all men"


Prayer must not show partiality toward anyone because God has commanded us to portray His love











10.   Philemon 1 v 4


 Let us follow Paul's example and never forget to not only pray for the needs of others but to be thankful for the contributions others make in our lives and to thank God for them all.



 


"I thank my God
making mention of you always,
 in my prayers"

  4. I agree with you. We must take each verse in context to know the truth and the real meaning of it. This is a good foundational list on verses related to prayer. I pray in agreement with you that we will all use these to explore God's Word more fully and be encouraged to pray.
