5 Best Psalms to Pray When You Need God’s Help Fast

One of the most beautiful aspects about God’s grace is that, by way of prayer, fallen men can approach the King of the Universe anytime and anywhere. This means you will never need an appointment and you’ll never get lost on your way to meet Him. The Lord has promised to be with you wherever you go and at all times … and He desires to hear from you just as you are.

Despite how it may feel at times, God is not some far away God who doesn’t care. Rather, the King of kings and Lord of lords is your Heavenly Father. Not only is He your Father, He is the perfect Father. He loves and cares for you with a perfect love, a love that is continuous, long-suffering, protective and everlasting, and thus His greatest wish to grant you all you need and ask — and then some.

The Book of Hebrews exhorts, “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in [our] time of need” (v 4:16). From this passage (and many more like it), it is clear that God desires for you to approach Him boldly — with a confidence that only an heir to the Throne can possess. As a believer, the door for grace and answered prayer is unlocked for you; you need only to believe that He is able to give you all you desire (so long as it is His will).


This all being stated, as you “come boldly to the throne of grace” you need not waste time searching for perfect words. By the grace of God, those who have gone before us, divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit, have left for all mankind some of the most powerful prayers this side of Heaven — and we are mightily encouraged to use them.

If you are in need of God’s help today, set aside a few minutes of quiet time to meditate on these 5 Best Psalms to Pray When You Need God’s Help Fast. Through contemplation of these most holy words God Himself, through the power of the Holy Ghost, will lead you just as you are in the most perfect and effective prayer for this time of need. 

5 Best Psalms to Pray When You Need God’s Help Fast

Psalm 77:11-14

I will remember the deeds of the Lord;
    yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
I will consider all your works
    and meditate on all your mighty deeds.”
Your ways, God, are holy.
    What god is as great as our God?
You are the God who performs miracles;
    you display your power among the peoples.

Psalm 86:1-5

Incline Your ear, Lord, and answer me;
For I am afflicted and needy.
Protect my soul, for I am godly;
You my God, save Your servant who trusts in You.
Be gracious to me, Lord,
For I call upon You all day long.
Make the soul of Your servant joyful,
For to You, Lord, I lift up my soul.
For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive,
And abundant in mercy to all who call upon You.

Psalm 119:129-133

Therefore my soul complies with them.
The unfolding of Your words gives light;
It gives understanding to the simple.
I opened my mouth wide and panted,
For I longed for Your commandments.
Turn to me and be gracious to me,
As is right for those who love Your name.
Establish my footsteps in Your word,
And do not let any wrongdoing have power over me.

Psalm 79:8-9

Do not hold us responsible for the guilty deeds of our forefathers;
Let Your compassion come quickly to meet us,
For we have become very low.
Help us, God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name;
And save us and forgive our sins for the sake of Your name.

Psalm 16:1-2, 5-6

Keep me safe, O God;
in you I take refuge.
I say to the Lord,
you are my Lord …

Lord, my allotted portion and my cup,
you have made my destiny secure.
Pleasant places were measured out for me;
fair to me indeed is my inheritance.
you are my only good.
