A Prayer for When You are Waiting on God

A prayer for when you are waiting on God

What a blessing it is to rise up in the morning and be able to praise the Lord! What are you thankful for at this time?

Are you witnessing about the glory of God in your life? About how you and your family have been blessed?

Are you currently waiting on God? Maybe you are waiting for a job, for healing, for restoration of a broken relationship, or for wisdom to know where you should go next.

Waiting can certainly test your patience. But as we wait, He prepares us. He strengthens us. And He builds our faith.


This prayer helps to bring peace of mind and assurance that God is taking care of your well-being.

Prayer – Waiting on God

El Shaddai, Lord God Almighty, I come before You with a heart full of anxiety, worry and suspense.

The nights are long, the days are tough. I am tired, weary and weak.

Lord, I am powerless toward knowing what the future holds. This uncertainty I bear has me uneasy and rises questions that stir in my mind constantly.


Are You there, Lord?

Did You hear my prayer? Father, sometimes the wait is long and impatience gets the better of me.

Forgive me and grant me the patience to await Your blessings upon my life and not question Your power.

Psalm 37:7 Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.

Your Blessings

Heavenly Father, allow me to be still as I await Your Holy presence and divine intervention. Your timing is always perfect and, even as I pray for what I think I deserve, You always bless me with what is best.


Elohim, as I await You patiently, my Loving Father, abide in me I pray. I yearn for You, Oh Lord my God, embrace me in your loving arms. I am vulnerable, defenseless and on my knees, crying out to You; please draw near.

But as for me, I will watch expectantly for the LORD; I will wait for the God of my salvation My God will hear me. – Micah 7:7

 Bring me out of this situation

I trust and believe that You are going to bring me out of this situation. You alone know what the future holds and knowing that you are the one who is holding it, I can find clarity, serenity and peace in my heart as it unfolds.

Guide me Lord, according to the will and purpose for my life and, as I quietly wait upon You, I will rest confident in Your love, knowing that You have already scheduled every day of my life. In Jesus’ Mighty Name I pray…Amen!


I wait for the LORD, my soul does wait, And in His word do I hope. – Psalm 130:5

Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD. – Psalm 27:14

    Thank you for the prayer. I’m so stressed while waiting for the blessings that I ask. My son really needs prayers cause he’s still making my life miserable. I want him to change and take his studies more seriously. He’s still giving lots of hard times at school and he’s always in problems. Help me Lord. Amen

  8. I went around the mountain for 9 years. But I had to be out of my comfort zone. Patience was a lesson that took a while to learn. But when I did God worked. Prayer, fasting, crying out then slowly things turned around. I had to learn to pay attention. I thank God every day for the lesson because I know for sure that HE is never going to disappoint nor deny. HE always keeps HIS promises.

  9. I feel like I have been waiting on God forever. I have been praying for the same prayer now for 3 years. I have been having a tough time financially and struggling with my marriage. I’ve been asking for guidance, direction and help. Things were so bad that I tried to take my own life 2.5 years ago. I’m grateful I didn’t die and I have been receiving the help I’ve needed mental health wise. My husband isn’t very supportive and my parents want me to just leave my husband. I don’t want to just divorce because things are tough. I’m also hoping if the financial stress eases up then my husband I once knew will come back. I pray everyday and pray for others. I just feel like God isn’t listening or maybe I’m not seeing what is being shown to me. I just really need some extra prayers to help me get through this. God is good!! Amen

  10. Father bind the evil one out of our marriage restoration and reconciliation when we starting seeing each other evil one attacked our marriage again But God and in Jesus Name it is Done. Glory to God.Amen

  15. Dear Florence. I come in agreement with you for help from God our Father. Nahum 1:7. He is our help in times of need. Continue believing that God has made provisions.
    He also sends us help from within the Body of Christ. if i may suggest looking into Dave Ramsey at the financial peace university. Many of our church members have been taking the classes and are being blessed by it. It is faith based and with practical applications.

    1. Yvonne Marie Miller

      No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.
      He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

      Dear Joanne….you will be lifted up in strong Prayer and the good Lord will move in your life. Ask….Expect….and Give Praise and it will be Given my dear. Do not be downcast God holds you in His Holy Hand and you will not fall….in Jesus Gentle Name, Father I ask this of You. Amen.

    2. Hello,

    1. Yvonne Marie Miller

      Dear Simoiya, please know you were held up in Prayer today even though I did not see your request until today, your Heavenly Father knew of it 3 months ago and more.
      Please know….When we belong to Christ, the enemy never has the final word over our lives. We are secure in God’s hands.
      Move forward one day at a time Simoiya – courageous and free – never held back by fear or defeat. The battle belongs to the Lord, and He has the final victory…..God Bless You. Yvonne Marie Miller..

I am so broken wondering if there is any point living. Yet I know it is not about me, with my folly, unbelieve, and the mess my life has become, but it is all about Him. May His will be done! I surrender it all while I keep on waiting. Thank you for this great ministry. Please keep on the good work. There is so much brokenness out there!

  33. I ask for prayer for my son Thomas. He is in a backsliding stage and very very addicted to drugs. I ask for prayer for release from drugs and restoration for his life. In the the name of Jesus!

    1. Yvonne Marie Miller

      Causby, you were prayed for tonight and I pray the good and loving Lord has moved in your life and that Thomas has been lifted up. As we grow to know God’s Truth and what is real, we also know more what is false, and we are stronger to stand against it in the powerful name of Christ Jesus. He never leaves us to fend for ourselves in a dark world, but reminds us He is constantly with us, fighting for us, even when we cannot see…… God will never leave Thomas in the dark and even if Thomas turns his back on God, God will never turn away from Thomas.

    2. Yvonne Marie Miller

      Lord God, Causby knows that You have plans for Thomas and yet he has strayed so far from the path of Your choosing – but Father I pray that in Your grace and mercy You would show his dear Mom what to do to free him from His addiction to drugs Please give his Mom Your strength of Your mighty power to support his through this difficult time and help him I pray to break free from his drug addiction – and to You be all the Praise and Glory – this I ask in Jesus Mighty name, Amen

      Amen

    3. Yvonne Marie Miller

      Dear Father God…I please ask You to take hold of Thomas and steer him in the way he should go, please raise him up to be the fine Christian boy his Mother and You want him to be, please release Thomas from the chains the evil one has placed around him and may Your Face shine upon his dear Mom giving her Peace and Comfort in knowing that You are Faithful and that this will be done for her. In the name of Gentle Jesus please hear this prayer. Amen.

  34. I’m believing that my love one’s are coming out of bondage today! Please agree with me in prayer for FATHER GOD to open their eyes so they can see THE TRUTH and remove the stony hearts and replace hearts of flesh in my adult children ( William & Sandria ) & my friend ( Reggie ) lives and for me to see them as HE see’s them and not judge people, in JESUS name. . . AMEN

    1. Yvonne Marie Miller

      These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”…Do not fear Karen and have Faith….enough to move a mountain and it shall be moved!

  35. This prayer is right on time today… Even though it’s difficult at times, I am learning to wait on God!!! Thank you for this site!!!

    1. Yvonne Marie Miller

      Dear Angela, When we belong to Christ, the enemy never has the final word over our lives. We are secure in God’s hands. Never held back by fear or defeat. The battle belongs to the Lord, and He has the final victory… I pray you are well Angela.
