PRAY WHILE YOU WAIT

Updated: May 14, 2023


There are days when it feels like you are praying more, and your situation is getting worse. Waiting on your prayers to be answered is a process and is God’s way of answering what you have diligently been praying for. We tend to pray and then try to plan the way we want God to answer our prayers. Instead of turning the issue completely over to Him, we want to tell or show Him how to fix the situation. Most of the time that makes the original problem worse. Therefore, not only does God have to correct what you tried to fix but, He also continues with the process of answering your original prayers. The bible tells us exactly what to do in times such as these. Philippians 4:6-7 says it best; “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ.” Simply said, be patient regarding all things while praying about everything and thanking God in advance for fixing your problems! God will give you peace while He works it out. We may not understand why or how. Just know that while you wait, you will be protected. If we implement this into our lives, it will help curve the desire to try to repair things ourselves all the while having peace in our hearts. Humanly, we are often uncomfortable while waiting for the resolution. The key is to concentrate on the promise of God knowing that He is working on your matters at hand. The practice of trusting God for a resolution is absolutely faith-building. So, practice patience within your situation, pray without reservation. Thank God in advance for his plans. Do not try to understand why. If you do this, peace will be in your heart while you wait, knowing that God has it handled in His time, not yours. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Psalm 55:22 Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved. Proverbs 3:5-6

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Sometimes waiting for the prayer to be answered can be difficult. We must also remember that God answers prayers in His time and in His way. We have to be willing to accept His answer and timing, especially when it's not the answer we wanted in the time period we desired it. We must always remember that God knows what is best for us and He knows the plans He has for us (Jeremiah 29:11).
