Here’s how to pray in troubling times

The prophet Hosea gives the promise of God’s answers to our prayer…

In just a short time he will restore us, so that we may live in His presence. Oh, that we might know the LORD! Let us press on to know him. He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring.” (Hosea 6:1-3 NLT) 

Here’s how to pray in troubling times:

  • Begin with worship. I can praise God in every season.
  • Remember His covenant names: Savior, Healer, Deliverer, Provider…
  • Count my blessings, name them one by one.
  • Search the Scriptures for stories where God rescued His people in trouble.
  • Confess my worries. Petition him for my needs.
  • Quiet my heart. Listen to His voice. Receive His revelation.
  • Trust him to do whatever is best. Surrender my future to His sovereign care.
  • Call a friend and pray for one another.
