It feels as though I’ve been waiting for so long.

Sometimes I sense that doubt and fear are trying to invade my mind as I wait for You, Lord.

As I cling to You during these moments of longing, help me to remember that You are in control.

You are already there.

You already know.

It’s all good.

Because You are God and You are good.

While I wait for You, help me to be still.

Help me to trust and know that You are at work in the midst of my pain.

Help me to rest in Your faithfulness as You work this all out.

Please strengthen my faith and bless me with greater wisdom, Lord.

While I wait, rearrange my thinking and fix my eyes on You, Jesus.

Turn my worry and anxious thoughts into prayer and thanksgiving.

Help me to surrender to Your sovereignty over all that concerns me right now.

You have not left me alone to fend for myself.

You are with me even now as I cry out to You in my distress.

Please keep me from letting my impatience get the best of me.

I don’t want to be impatient.

I want to trust You fully.

While I wait, keep my heart and mind focused on You rather than on the outcome of my circumstances.

This is hard, and I can’t do it on my own.

I need You to fix my focus and capture my heart.

You hold the outcome; even more so You hold me.

Lord, more than anything I want the desire of my heart to be You.

Now what You can do…

Just You.

Jesus, You are worth waiting for.
