My Monday Prayer: The Rest of Faith
-Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord (Psalm 27:14 NLT).
What should your faith do in response to what is yours today? Receive! What should your faith do in response to what will be yours another day? Rest!
As you wait upon the Lord, wait with a thankful heart, not a complaining one; with a peaceful heart, not a striving one; with a confident heart, not an uncertain one; with a patient heart, not a hasty one.
You do not need to try to manipulate your
future. God is able to fulfill all that He has promised. As you wait, continue
to pray, continue to trust, continue to believe, continue to hold hope in your
heart, continue to obey, and continue to rejoice evermore. You have a God who
cannot and will not fail!
My Monday Prayer
Father God, my prayer list is long, and before I whisper a request, You know the answer. You promise to supply more than I can ask or think, and I believe You. Help me to hold on to Your promises, as outlined in Your Word, as I approach Your throne. Increase my faith, not just to boldly request things that matter to me or those I care about, but to trust You with Your answers to those prayers. Teach me to wait, trust, believe and hold hope in my heart. Encourage me to obey, and always to rejoice! You will not fail! Help me to rest in Your victories! In Jesus' name, amen.
