waiting prayer

faith deferred
to watch for word
each minute every hour
the dire clock
the cruel tick tock
is falsely given power
senseless so
to fret the foe
the waves of worry’s bait
and yet we pace
for just in case
our tread will alter fate
God transform
my foolish squirm
to glad and truer trust
for lone your time
and not earth’s chime
the waiting angst is hushed

And now, O Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in you. Psalm 39:7

“May God open the heavens, break through the clouds, and deliver the answer you’ve been waiting for. May He shore up your faith, strengthen your heart, and overwhelm you with His grace. May your soul know a peaceful assurance like it’s never known before. May you believe from deep within that God is with you, for you, and will never let you go. He is mighty to save.” – Susie Larson
