"Depending on God My Shepherd" - Perseverance Prayer

One of the few guarantees of life is that it will be hard, there will be difficulties, and things will go wrong. For Christians, there is also the guarantee there will be persecution, hardship, and spiritual warfare on top. Metaphors for life used in the Bible include a race, a storm, and a harsh wind.

One of the traits and spiritual fruits that God gives to humanity to endure the trials and tribulations of this life is perseverance, which is defined by the dictionary as “steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement. In theology, it is continuance in a state of grace to the end, leading to eternal salvation.”





Both definitions apply to the way this word is used in the Bible. The Christian life requires steadiness, purpose, and consistency. The trials, tribulations, and temptations of living in a fallen world require it, but in the end, there is eternity with the living God. Perseverance can be a difficult strength to call upon, which is why people are encouraged to ask the Holy Spirit for it, rather than relying on their own strength.

When times get tough, or something you have been working hard for is not happening as quickly as you think it should, it can be hard to keep pushing forward. Here is a powerful prayer for perseverance.



Father, You are my Great Shepherd. You provide my every need. You direct me to the right path. You protect me from every harm.

In You alone, I find everything I need to live a full life. By Your help, I can deal with life’s challenges effectively and perseveringly.

Teach me to be like sheep, following Your lead submissively, trusting Your protection confidently, and depending on Your provisions assuredly.

Help me to submit to your guidance wholeheartedly, that I may keep pursuing the right path for my life. Amen.
