Friday’s Prayer: Wait for the Lord

Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. ‭‭James‬ ‭5:7‬ ‭NIV

Lord God, the farmer does his work and then he waits expectantly for the ground to give up its fruit.  They do their work and then they wait with hopeful expectation for the corn to give the ear.  He watches and waits for the rain clouds to drift by and then to flood the earth with the waters.  Lord, give me such a longing and expectation for your coming.  Today, yes, even this very moment might be the moment when the heavens open and you come down.  Lord God, I can’t wait for you to come.  When you come, then my old nature will be totally obliterated and gone.  I won’t have to war anymore with desires that I don’t want.  There won’t be any more sorrow or pain.  And best of all, then I will be with you forever.  I can’t wait for all of that and so much more, dear Father.  Fill my heart with hopeful and yearning expectation for your coming.  Amen.

Refuel Faith: Psalm 110-111
