Lord you give power to those who are mentally or physically tired. As I rest in your presence you renew my strength. I am able do what is necessary without weariness and fatigue. You cause me to be still and steadfast to get the rest I need. You give power to the faint and strength to those who lack it. I abide in your sanctuary and resting places where I can be refreshed and renewed. When I have to deal continually with troubling circumstances or people, I am not frustrated because you are my God. You are with me and you strengthen and help me with wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
When I lie down at night, you give me rest and sweet sleep. Each day it is my voice that you hear directing my prayers to you. You give me everything I need because your mercies are new each day. Every time my flesh is tired, Lord God you are my strength and peace. I am not troubled because you are my refuge during times of stress. Through prayers, supplication and thanksgiving, you give me your peace which guards my heart and mind through Christ Jesus and is beyond understanding.

For God, who said, “Let there be light in the darkness,” has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ. We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves. We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed. Through suffering, our bodies continue to share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies. –2Corinthians 4:6-10 (New Living Translation)
The scriptures tells us that the fervent, effectual (continuous and heartfelt) prayers of the righteous availeth much (will reveal manifestation). If it seems as though a situation has worsened or you only see small indications of progress, it is important to keep your confidence and trust in God. Hold on to the expectation that He is moving in your behalf. In His timing He will change your circumstances. When you pray without ceasing, you change too. You can achieve victory over your challenges.
If you see the small things He does for you, then rejoice. Praising God will release your blessings from the captivity of the enemy. Your life is held hostage by your mouth. So open your mouth to praise God and open your mouth to speak the release of His eternal promises (the scriptures) that do not fail. He will not forsake the cry of the righteous.

There are over 120 scripturallly-based prayers of affirmation regarding Spiritual Growth, Family, Health, Finances and other circumstances to jumpstart or enhance your prayerlife.
Speak affirmations over your life that reflect what God says about you, what He says about your access to Him, and your access to His kingdom promises. The two preface chapters explain why living in kingdom privilege and kingdom access demands that you: Speak the Language of Kingdom and Shift from Victim to Victorious. When you do, prepare to enter into God’s tangible presence where your heart will readily commit to His love, power, peace and blessings.
The effects of communion and fellowship with God yields the manifestation of spiritual growth and blessing in every facet of your life. The benefit of prayer is the evidence that God truly honors what is promised in His Word. It is important to know the Word of God for effective and effectual prayer. And His Word declares who He is, what He does, who we are, and what we can have. Our greatest access to God, kingdom living, and the assistance of the Holy Spirit is through prayer.

Sometimes when our earthly cares are hard to endure because of lack, delays, denials and rejection from people, we tend to feel forsaken by God. I used to feel that way because when I accepted the Lord in my life, I experienced the tangible presence of God frequently. When that sensual tangibility began to fade even though I was growing in the word of God, I thought He abandoned me. I was going through so many challenges, but in actuality He was teaching me how to trust and have confidence that I was yet His daughter. As I delved into the scriptures and embraced the words that described his virtue, character and nature, I did learn to trust. Now I have the sweetest times when I get quiet and talk to Him spirit to spirit. And when I’m busy, I hold on to a consciousness that He is near, watching me and caring for everything that concerns me. I am encouraged by my favorite scriptures: Isaiah 54, Psalm 18, Psalm 23, and reminded of His safety by Psalm 91. My Father God has never left or forsaken me.
I believe He takes special care of us as we extend grace to others by demonstrating forgiveness, love and mercy to them. This is especially so if our hearts have been broken, or we have been wounded or afflicted by them. We have to allow the love of God to pour into our heart to heal, renew and restore. You have His love when you give to others in spite of your material lack. Sowing is not with money alone, but to God it is giving of your time, talents, and service that are seed. And when you sow that, He is faithful and just to the law of His kingdom that you shall reap a bountiful harvest. So expect your harvest to be whatever is needed and necessary for your life, peace and well-being. Just as God is faithful, we must remain faithful to trusting the promises of His word that are “yes” and “so be it and not otherwise.”
Here is a little project that you can do to help build your confidence and relationship with the Lord. Go through the book of Psalm and underline or highlight every word that describes his character, nature or virtue. Example: Lord, Redeemer, Father, Lord of Host, King of Kings. When you are down and out, or want to worship Him, open the bible and just read all those names aloud. He will love your worship and praise. It will dispel the darkness, loneliness, hurt and pain, or rejection. He has been, is and will always be all of those names and much, much more to you. He loves us with an everlasting love. Let the word of God help you learn and know about your spiritual Father, Husband, Brother, and Friend. He says He is those relationships to us. Be in expectancy that He will abundantly satisfy and do miraculous things for you. You are not forsakened.
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” –Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)
