Today’s Prayer

My impatient soul grows weary in the waiting period designated for this season by Your command, Lord God. Time seems to halt to a pace I can hardly endure while I listen for Your promises. Protect me from the consistent nudging of my need for resolution, Lord God. Empower my heart to be still so that I do not forge ahead on the wrong path, destined for a mistaken interpretation of Your will. Moving forward in faith feels less daunting than standing still in faith where my vulnerabilities and insecurities feel utterly exposed to the enemy. How do I survive the hours of perplexity and confusion, knowing that I am anxious to serve You in righteousness but not knowing what way to take? Lord, prohibit me from rushing forward in presumption merely to rid myself of the discomfort of silent waiting. So let me wait with anticipation, Lord. May I seek Your presence in prayer while continually worshipping You in this space between. May this waiting period bring out the simplicity of my soul with childlike humility that remembers the wisdom of my Father. Even as I tarry here in this appointed season, I will yet hope in You, Jesus. You will come at exactly the right time, never early and never late. With patience, I will endure the affliction of waiting without rebellious inclinations because I know You are blessing me with a refinement of spirit. For to do Your will is my truest delight. Even when I am brought to spiritual extremities I will yield to You in the waiting. For Your helping hand will drive back the floodwaters and vanquish my enemies. With my heart fixed upon You, Jesus, I can rest assured that You are keeping me safe as I wait with resolute peace. You are my joy, my salvation and my refuge. Your will be done. Under the Word of truth in Psalm 27:13-14 and the authority of Christ Jesus, I bow in prayer.

I remain confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
    be strong and take heart
    and wait for the Lord.
Psalm 27:13-14, NIV
