How to pray when you want to quit


Lord God,

Thank you for your patience, grace, and love for me

as I struggle through life,

making the same mistakes,

de-valuing my calling,

and giving up on what you've told me to do because it's so difficult.

Lord, I want to persevere.

I want to endure.

Build my faith and trust in you because of who you are,

not because I try harder to trust you.

You have always been faithful and good to me.

I can trust you even when life is hard.

Holy Spirit,

speak encouragement to me,

and help me listen and absorb the truth you're saying.

I will not quit because I can't predict the end of something.

I will not quit because I'm afraid to fail.

I will not quit because I'm afraid to succeed,

to hold more responsibility,

or afraid to bear the weight of your will for my life.

I will trust.

I will obey.

I will endure and sow faith into my life.

You will show yourself faithful in return, 

just as you always have.

I love you.

In Jesus' powerful name,


Galatians 6:8-10

Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
