Prayer Journey — Expectant

Can I pray with expectation dear Lord that you can do what seems impossible? I look upon so many situations and do not see any way possible for things to change. Yet you are a God of the impossible. You accomplish things in unforeseen ways, bringing hope into seemingly hopeless situations. Forgive my disbelief. Help me to trust your ways. Help me to have faith in the unseen, in what you will accomplish in your time. Thank you for your love and grace. This morning I praise you dear God.

    Prayer of Expectation

    Can I pray to you dear Lord?
    With expectation, great
    Of what seems impossible
    And I just need to wait

    I look upon so many
    Of situations, fear
    I don’t see any way
    For things to change here

    Of the impossible
    Our God that you be
    You accomplish things
    In ways we couldn’t see

    Gift of bringing hope
    In hopeless situations
    Forgive my disbelief
    And trust in Your foundation

    With faith in the unseen
    In time what You will do
    Thank you for Your love and grace
    This morning I’ll praise You!

  2. Amen! Our fragile human selves will experience hints of doubt from time to time. Your prayer addresses these feelings of doubt. Our God of the “impossible” shall never say never.

  3. This aligns with Jeremiah 29:10-14….when the time was “complete” the Israelites were released from captivity. For a time to be “completed,” there must be a plan. And so there was—and is! Our sovereign doesn’t let anything stretch on one moment farther than His design. Hallelujah!

  4. This is so! Even when we don’t like the look or feel of what’s going on, we can rest assured (emphasis on REST) that God is handling all things to His glory. I think of Israel and their ‘prosperous’ times before God brought in His judgment. Then they were wiped out. It all looked very bleak, but God was fulfilling His promises from Deuteronomy 28. Same with Judah. They were carried away, captive, by the Babylonians. Similar things may happen to us in the US. It won’t look good. But God will still be in control, and He will bring final glory to Himself, and peace to us.

  5. Amen!
    This beautiful prayer is close to what I have been reading in Ezra, how God achieves the impossible to return His people to Jerusalem. Nothing is impossible to Him – Hallelujah!
