Welcome to our list of short prayers. We have sourced the best short Christian prayers on the most popular prayer topics. Prayers that are short are easy to memorize, and great for children to learn as an introduction to Christian prayer.
The nice thing about these prayers is that they are easy to teach to children. If you have ever tried to teach a bunch of Sunday School kids the Nicene Creed, you probably know what I’m talking about. Lets start off with some brief prayers for strength.
Short Prayers for Strength
Prayers for strength are great to say on a daily basis, either in the morning, or nightly before bed time.

Guide Me Lord
Guide me lord, you are my heart
you are my strength, you are my hope.
Teach me Lord, and guide my way
I love you more each passing day.
A Prayer for Being Grateful
Lord God, may we be grateful for our lot,
and compassionate toward all those who are
suffering every kind of distress at this
difficult time. May we hold back nothing, and
hasten to be the ministers of prayer and mercy,
like the disciples of Him who went about doing
good in times of need.
Hold my Hand in Weakness
Lord God, you are my strength.
Hold my hand in my weakness and
teach my heart to fly. With you,
there’s nothing to fear, nothing
to worry about. Hold me tight
in your embrace, so that I can
be stronger than the challenges
in my life. Amen.
Short Christian Prayers
Here are some great Christian prayers to memorize and say on a daily basis.
It is good to remember that with God, anything is possible. God gives us hope and guidance when we commit to prayer every day.
A Morning Prayer
Lord help me
is going to happen
to me today
that You and I
together can’t handle.
For this new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends.
For everything Thy goodness sends,
We thank Thee, dearest Lord. Amen.
A Short Prayer to Jesus
May the grace of Christ, our Savior,
And the Father’s boundless love,
With the Holy Spirit’s favor,
Rest upon us from above.
Thus may we abide in union
With each other and the Lord
And possess, in sweet communion,
Joys which earth cannot afford.

A Prayer for Healing
Heavenly Father, You are intimately aware
of the struggle I am experiencing —
the pain and the despair. You know
the desire of my heart to be healed
of this illness.
I ask now for Your
healing touch. I know that You are
able and that just like in Bible times,
You can heal me.
“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”[Psalm 56:3]
