Prayer For Those Who Are Tired of Waiting
Father, I pray for (name one or more) and
others in my circle of family and friends
who are growing discouraged...
When they feel as if they wait and watch and nothing happens— nothing changes—they grow discouraged. They may feel like the prophet who cried out, How long must I call for help, before You listen? Help them not to give up, to keep watching for Your answers, to be willing to keep on praying. (Habakkuk 1:2a; 2:1; Luke 18:1–5)
Help them be determined to rejoice in You no matter what's happening in their lives, to be joyful in You, their Savior, no matter how hard things are or how tired they are. Be their strength! (Habakkuk 3:17–19a)
Give them faith strong enough to wait on You as Abraham, David, and Joseph did. Help them not to lose their confidence in You and Your faithfulness, to know they will see how good You are. Help them turn to You as the One who sustains them. (Genesis 17:19; 21:2, 5; 1 Samuel 16:13; 2 Samuel 2:4a; Genesis 37:2a; 41:46a; Psalm 54:4)
Help them put their hope in Your Word and all it tells them about You. Help them trust in the wonder of Your great love. (Psalm 130:5; 17:7a)
In Jesus' name, amen.
