Pray for Courage

Everyone, even the seemingly most self-confident person - needs courage to face each day. Some days require more courage than others, especially if you’re shy and timid. Most people think of the need for courage only when facing a dangerous situation, but there are endless circumstances that require courage: such as trying to break a bad habit, discipling a child, asking for a promotion, giving a speech, being alone, asking for forgiveness or or any other challenge that is out of your comfort zone. If you are ever tempted to run away from your troubles - let Jesus help you stay and fight the battle. Ask God for an extra measure of courage to help you face whatever trials are before you. The Bible says in Psalm 138:3, “When I asked for your help, you answered my prayer and gave me courage.” Moses said in Deuteronomy 1:6, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified . . . for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.” That’s a pretty powerful promise you can claim every day! Always remember that in every situation - lean on Jesus. Pray for courage and God will replace all feelings of intimidation and fear, with Holy Spirit boldness - allowing you to truly shine for Him and accomplish all that He has planned for you.
