They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. - Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)

I hate waiting. For me waiting is wasting time. I want the plane to take off once I am seated. I expect the server to bring the food soon after I place my order at a restaurant. Waiting makes me feel angry, frustrated, even hopeless.

After my home was damaged...

Today's Prayer
Father God, teach us to wait upon you. Help us to know that you are always working for our good. Amen.

Peace for someone anxiously waiting


Respond by posting a prayer.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
