Prayer – I Will Wait Upon The Lord

PATREON SUPPORTERS Log-in here to remove ads Login with Patreon

When you feel you are in limbo, wait upon the Lord to sort it out. I find this to be particularly true when there is no answer as to what to do next, or which direction to take.

It’s also true in those situations where I may not even want to speak to someone because I cannot fully comprehend where I am, what is really going on, nor why I am there.

The scripture says “Do not turn to the right, nor turn to the left” and also “Do not look back”. If you cannot move forward, just wait. Let God put things into motion for you.

Thank Him and Praise Him, and call upon your angels to help set your path straight.

Think about what God has to do to resolve your dilemma. How many people He has to change, who they are, what they have to do and how long it may take them to obey God, for you to receive your blessings.

What You Do While You Wait Upon The Lord

Waiting is also an act of obedience. It is what you do when you are waiting that helps you to grow.

Just like Peter, when he was walking on water, trust God. Have faith that He has you and your situation under control. Do not act on your own might nor merit and just leave it to Him for as long as it takes.

Cast your cares. Be happy. Expect great things. Thank and bless Him, and wait. It is always a good idea to occupy your mind with God and Jesus while you are waiting.

Remind Him of His Word and all of His promises regarding how He said He will take care of you. That’s speaking to God and having a relationship with Him.

Waiting May Be Tough, But …

I know that God is a great God. He is the Almighty, the Most High and He loves you. As tough as waiting may seem, it is always the best decision.

When God bestows His blessings on you for your obedience, you WILL know that He is Lord and that it came from Him. He reveals Himself in your blessings, so give Him thanks and praise.

The longer the waiting period, sometimes, the greater the testimony is on the greatness, love and mercy of God. Let us pray.

Prayer: I will wait upon the Lord

Heavenly Father, in the quiet of this moment, I come before You to declare my intention to wait upon You. In a world that rushes and races, You call me to a posture of patience and trust.

My soul yearns for immediate answers and quick resolutions, yet I know Your ways are higher than mine, Your timing more perfect than any I could devise.

Teach me, Lord, to embrace the waiting as a sacred space where my faith can grow and my spirit can find rest in You. Help me to understand that in the waiting, You are working, weaving together a tapestry of grace that will reveal Your glory and goodness in my life.

Isaiah 40:31 – Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.

Isaiah 8:17 – And I will wait for the LORD who is hiding His face from the house of Jacob; I will even look eagerly for Him.

Seeking Peace and Patience

Grant me peace in the midst of uncertainty, and patience in the face of delay. Calm my anxious thoughts and quiet my restless heart. Remind me that You are sovereign over every aspect of my life, and that nothing escapes Your notice or Your care.

In times of waiting, let me be attentive to Your presence and open to the lessons You wish to teach me. May I find joy in the journey, knowing that You walk beside me, guiding and guarding every step.

I thank You, Father, for the promise and the process of waiting. I choose to wait upon You with a heart full of gratitude and faith, believing that the best is yet to come. In the name of Jesus, who is my hope and my salvation, I pray, Amen!

Psalm 40:1 I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me and heard my cry.

Lamentations 3:25 The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, To the person who seeks Him.
