Waiting On God 

Dear Lord, Your word says that You LORD are good to those who wait for You, to the people who seek You.  (Lamentations 3:25)

We pray as Hannah prayed after waiting on your timing: “Our heart exults in the Lord; our horn is exalted in the Lord, our mouths speaks boldly against our enemies, because we rejoice in Your salvation. There is no one holy like the Lord, Indeed, there is no one besides You, nor is there any rock like our God. “The Lord kills and makes alive; He brings down to Sheol and raises up. The Lord makes poor and rich; He brings low, He also exalts. He raises the poor from the dust, He lifts the needy from the ash heap to make them sit with nobles, and inherit a seat of honor; for the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, And He set the world on them. He keeps the feet of His godly ones, but the wicked ones are silenced in darkness; for not by might shall a man prevail. Those who contend with the Lord will be shattered; against them He will thunder in the heavens, The Lord will judge the ends of the earth; and He will give strength to His king, and will exalt the horn of His anointed. Lord, we are waiting for your perfect time to set the pillars of America on the solid ground of Your Word. We know we deserve judgment, but LORD we are asking for mercy, not on our merit but so that Your Holy Name will be exalted in the earth.” 1 Samuel 2:1-2 and 6-10

But as for us, our prayer is to You, O Lord, at an acceptable time; O God, in the greatness of Your lovingkindness, answer us with Your saving truth. Deliver us from the mire and do not let us sink; may we be delivered from our foes and from the deep waters. May the flood of water not overflow us nor the deep swallow us up, nor the pit shut its mouth on us. Answer us, O Lord, for Your lovingkindness is good; according to the greatness of Your compassion, turn to us, And do not hide Your face from Your servants, for we are in distress; answer us quickly. Oh draw near to our souls and redeem it; ransom us because of our enemies! You know our reproach and our shame and our dishonor; all our adversaries are before You. Psalm 69:13–19

Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; and let those who love Your salvation say continually, “Let God be magnified.” But we are afflicted and needy; hasten to us, O God! You are our help and our deliverer; O Lord, do not delay. Psalm 70:4-5

In the Precious Name of Jesus, Amen
