This month’s topical Bible reading challenge, Waiting on God, has been great! Each day as I read, I have new thoughts about the process of the wait. Why God’s timing is perfect, why it’s so important to wait for his timing, how the wait is not boring and inactive, and more. Today after reading the passage, I wrote a prayer while waiting on God and thought I’d share it with you.
A Prayer While Waiting on God
As my Creator, you know me
Even better than I know myself.
Patience doesn’t come easy for me,
As if I have to tell you that.
God, I’m so sorry
For rushing ahead
When your hand hasn’t opened the door.
I’m sorry for complaining of boredom
When being still is much more
Than sitting quietly.
You shape my spirit through the still
And you mold my heart in the quiet.
Only then, am I ready to follow your will.
Will you change my perspective of this season?
Will you rekindle my love anew?
For I know the wait is not without reason;
May it draw me closer to you.
Whatever season of wait, may you enjoy the gift of his presence.
By his grace,
“Our focus is often on the wait; God’s focus is on the work.”- One More Step
