Praying through verses or passages of the Bible is a great way to help you pray according to the will and desires of God. Below is a passage of Scripture and a sample prayer. I would encourage you to pray that prayer, or, even better, read the passage and pray as God leads you.
Text: 2 Corinthians 12:8-9
Concerning this, I pleaded with the Lord three times that it would leave me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is perfected in weakness.” (Christian Standard Bible)
Father, we beg and and we plead in the face of suffering. Sometimes it seems you answer; sometimes it seems the answer is far away. Help us to remember that even when you tell us “no”–that you will not remove the burden from us, you still tell us “yes”–you are with us and you give us grace. Father, let your grace be sufficient for us today. Let us rest in knowing that we are weak but you are strong, infinitely strong. Help us to see your strength in the midst of our weakness, all because of your grace. Amen.
