I Choose to Wait on You

Father, help me to be confident that I will see Your goodness in the land of the living. Help me to wait for You, to be strong and take heart and to wait. I ask that my life would increasingly become a proclamation of Your greatness and goodness. Make me fearless in the face of trials. Strengthen me, I pray, to stand firm and release my lips to worship You—You are great and awesome O God! You alone are God, creator of heaven and earth, and I join with all creation and praise Your holy name! Holy! Holy! Holy! Lord God Almighty, who always has been, who is here right now, and who is coming!

Forgive me for withholding my praise and adoration, for being silent and even sullen and losing sight of Your greatness and glory. In doing so I’ve allowed You to become small in my eyes and have taken situations and concerns into my own hands instead of trusting You.

You have said that the one who trusts in man and depends on the arm of flesh for his strength is cursed. Father, forgive me for the ways that I have trusted in others or my own strength instead of trusting You. Increase my faith, Lord. May I become like a tree planted by the water that doesn’t fear when heat comes, but whose leaves are always green.

I choose now to cast my cares on You . . .

relationships in my life that are fractured,those who are close to me who have yet to call on Your name,the weariness of finances,the brokenness of the world . . .

O Lord, increase my faith! Enable me by Your Spirit to speak Your word with great boldness into every situation of my life, regardless of what is happening around me. I choose again to put my trust in You and hope in Your unfailing love, for You are my strength and those who hope in You will not be disappointed. Thank You that You are at work on my behalf, and nothing is too difficult for You. Nothing! In Jesus’ name. Amen.
