What are Prayers for Good Luck?

Praying for good luck is a way for us to ask God for positivity and help when we worry and have doubts. Although we know nothing happens by chance, praying helps calm us and puts our heads into perspective. It also gives us something to look forward to and helps us gain confidence in our endeavors.

How to Pray for Good Luck?

Thank God first

Before asking for anything, always thank God first. He is why we are alive, can do what we want, and have what we need. Never forget to thank God for everything we have in our lives. A thankful heart for God keeps us humble and constantly reminds us to trust in God’s process and leadership. 

Surrender your worries and doubts

Our worries and doubts prevent us from seeing the ‘luck’ we have. So, when praying for good luck, always surrender your worries and doubts to God. It will help your luck and boost your confidence because talking about your fears helps you unload stress. Learning to lay down your worries and doubts to God also trains you to trust Him more each day. 

Ask for God to give you confidence in your endeavor.

After surrendering your doubts and worries, ask God for confidence and courage. No matter how big or small you will be facing, you must ask God to prepare you so that you will be confident in your endeavor. Good luck only works when you are positive and self-assured with your trust in God’s plan and leadership.

Ask for God to give you peace while you wait for the outcome

Waiting is always nerve-wracking. It makes you think of thousands of possible outcomes, even results that are sometimes too far-fetched. So, while you wait for the outcome, ask God to give you peace in your mind and heart. Ask Him to remove any doubts or worries that may cause you to overthink and stress over something that won’t likely happen.

Bible Verses about Good Luck and Good Fortune

Psalm 84:11

“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.”

Ephesians 1:3

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.”

Numbers 6:24-26

“The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.”

Matthew 7:11

“If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”

Psalm 23:6

“Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

What does the Bible say about Good Luck?

According to James 1:17, all good things come from God, who works for the good of those who love Him. This would leave no room to think that our successes and achievements are because of luck. All our blessings are because of God’s rewards and provisions for those who love Him. When we trust in God, nothing comes by chance but blessings and outcomes from the Lord. 

Is it Essential to Pray for Good Luck as a Christian?

As Christians, we know that nothing happens by chance; there is a time and reason for everything because we know God is in control. So, instead of praying for good luck, pray that God helps you trust and depend on Him more. Ask for patience as you wait for God’s guidance and directions

Always remember that our goals are nothing compared to God’s plans for our lives. What we think is already the best for us is nothing compared to the best that God has in store for us.

In Summary

All the blessings, such as successes and new opportunities, come into our lives because God intended them. Although it may seem like they were bestowed on us because of good luck, we Christians must remember that everything has a purpose. As challenging as it may seem to believe, hoping for good luck to be bestowed upon you could only take you so far. 

So, instead of praying for good luck, pray for God to give you patience as you wait for His guidance and provisions. Ask for God to teach you to trust in His timing and to remind you of His promises so that you have something to look forward to instead of worrying and overthinking. Chance can only take you so far, but God will give you the extra step and push toward the end goal He has planned for you.
