Praying Through Life's Challenges

Back to Growth Plan List

Life is not always easy. Sometimes challenges are looming, or difficulties can pounce on us without warning.

As Christians, our first response in times like these should be prayer -- but we may not know what to pray or how to pray. This Growth Plan will walk you through praying through the difficult times in life… from the very moment a problem reveals itself, to continuing with prayer during the arduous battle.

As you go through some of our best content on praying during challenging times, you will learn how to trust the Holy Spirit, how to pray for growth and God’s will, and how you can approach God’s throne with confidence.

The Holy Spirit acts as our interpreter and intercessor when we don't have the words to pray. What an incredible gift!

Rely on Prayer to Help You

When you face a difficult situation, ask God to do big things in it—to grow you, change you, and glorify Himself. That is audacious prayer!
