SylviaGod is inviting you to lean into Him when you don't understand and trust Him. The following shield of trust prayer guides you how to pray holding up your shield of trust, regardless of what is going on around you.


Father, when things are shaky or dark and I don't understand, I redirect my focus to Your great heart of love for me and Your power and presence.

When I don't know what to pray,
I trust Your goodness. Psa 31:19, 34:8, 100:5, 119:68, 136:1, 145:7

I trust that You are sovereign. You have all authority and all power. Mat 28:18

I trust that nothing takes You by surprise. You know the end from the beginning. Isa 46:9-10

I trust that Your Word is forever settled in heaven. All things serve you. Psa 119:89,91

I trust that there is no circumstance, person, place, or time that the blood of Jesus does not cover. I trust that You who spared not Your own Son will freely give me Your best. Rom 8:31-32

I trust that You are for me, and nothing can separate me from Your love. That was settled on the cross of Jesus. Rom 8:35-39

I trust that Your lovingkindness never ceases. Your compassions never fail. They are new every morning. I trust Your great faithfulness. Lam 3:22-23

I trust that You know and care about me. The very hairs of my head are numbered. I trust that You supply all my needs through Your riches in Christ Jesus. Mat 10:30, Phi 4:19

I trust that You supply Your abundant grace to me in this situation, so that in all things, at all times, I have all Your sufficient grace I need. I trust You to show Your perfect power in my weakness. 2 Cor 9:8, 2 Cor 12:9-10

I trust that You are my shield, my strong tower, my refuge, my hope, my joy, my peace, my everything, my all. Psa 18:1-3, Col 3:11b

I trust that You renew my strength as I wait on You. Isa 40:31

I trust that You never leave me nor forsake me. You are with me, a very present help. You never go back on a promise. Heb 13:5-6, Josh 21:45

I trust that You guard what I have entrusted to You. 2 Tim 1:12

I trust that You are God of all comfort, Father of mercies. I trust that You have a heart that tears can touch. You invite me to climb up in Your lap and cry. 2 Cor 1:3-4, Heb 4:15, Psa 56:8

I trust that You give gladness instead of mourning and praise instead of fainting. Weeping may endure for a night, but You give joy in the morning. Isa 61:3, Psa 30:5

I trust that You do all things for my good and Your glory, to make me like Jesus. Romans 8:28-29

You are enthroned on the praises of Your children. When I lift You up in a sacrifice of praise, I glorify You in this situation in the here-and-now. Psa 22:3 NASB, Heb 13:15

Father, glorify Yourself this hour. John 12:28a
In Jesus' name, amen.
