Prayer For January 17th

January 17, 2015

hope

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Our Father,

Lord, please help us to live with excited anticipation for the things you will do in our lives. You promise to deliver…to provide…to meet our needs…to give us your peace…to bind our wounds…to hear our cries…to never leave or forsake us…we should never question “what” you will do for us or “if” you will do for us…you have proven yourself time and again and your promises are true for each of us throughout eternity. Everything we have read… everything we have seen… show us it’s not a matter of “if” you will fulfill your promises, it’s just a matter of “when”. Help us to rest patiently in you while we wait. Help us to let go of our own time tables and to trust that your timing is the best. Help us to learn our lessons well so we won’t hinder your work or delay it. Help us to grow into the mature Christians you want us to be and not be as children in our thinking. We think of how children are on a road trip… every few minutes they say “are we there yet?” A few minutes is like an eternity to them and so often we are like that with you. We want quick resolutions to our difficulties… we don’t want to hurt, we don’t want to suffer or be in pain… we live in a world where everything needs to be quicker and faster and patience is not something that comes naturally.

Father, forgive us for our impatience and frustration with you and your timing, and we ask for your help to change our thinking so we will make the most of our “waiting time”. Help us to see the events in our lives through your eyes and to seek your plan and your vision for our lives instead of our own. We thank you, Lord for all you have done and all you are going to do. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

Praying blessings of peace upon you!

In His love,
Debbie
