Praying in the Wait


Hi friends. Today I have a post featured on The M.O.M. Initiative titled Let Dad be Dad. If you are a mom, check it out.

Today I want to pray for you all as you wait. God often brings us into waiting times. If you are in a waiting time you may want to check out this resource: 31 days to Finding God in the Wait.

Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.  Isaiah 40:31

Dear Father God,

You are holy, holy, holy, omnipotent, omniscient, and You came to die for us. Your glories are seen in the sunrise and sunset, in the changing of the seasons, and in the starry host. You hold this universe together and You care about all of us – each reader of this blog is Your handiwork and bears Your image. Father there are times You have us in seasons of waiting. Waiting is difficult, it sears our hearts, and doubts cloud our view of You. As we wait we ache. Help us to cling to You as we wrestle through this waiting time. Help us to see Your hand in the wait. Use this time to draw us near to You, to whisper who You are to us, and to strengthen our faith. Thank You that when we wait for You, You give us strength so we can soar, run, and walk. In the wait help us to remember You are “able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.” (Ephesians 3:20) Remind us that You have good plans for us. Give us peace that passes understanding as we wait and trust You.

In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
