Prayer for courage

Posted by Joseph Iwaye on Saturday, December 3, 2016 Under: Prayers
Courage is the innate capacity to do what is right when everyone around you is doing the opposite. Courage gives you the ability to proclaim Christ when others are denying him. Taking a brief look brief at the scripture, I found out that courage can give you the zeal, the boldness and the strength to fulfill your God-given destiny (Deut. 31:7, 1Chr. 22:13). Courage can energise you to kill your Goliath and thereby announce you to the world (like the case of David). Courage can take you from obscurity to fame. God knows the potential power of courage, he instructed Joshua several times to be courageous (Joshua 1:6 -7, 1:9). David instructed his son, Solomon, on many occasions to be strong and courageous (1Chr. 28:20) because he understood that courage is the pathway to victory.

Beloved, you need to be courageous. If you are not, you can ask God for the grace to be courageous today. 
Below are a few prayers you can pray for courage. They are written for every beloved of Christ who desires to gain strength and courage in their daily activities or endeavour.
