Rest

As we pray Father

Strengthen us to wait patiently

Keep us seeking You

as Paul expressed

We have not ceased

to pray for you,

strengthened us with all power

to be patient according

to Your glorious might,

for all endurance

and patience with joy.

Colossians 1:9–11

Give us Your patience

Give us power to press on

through difficulties,

Give us Your patience

Give us power to press on

through discouragements,

Give us Your patience

Give us power to press on

through detours

Swell our hearts full of faith

Fill our mouths full of praise.

Give us the strength

of Joseph’s patience,

who spent the best years

of his life in a dungeon,

and came out saying

“God meant it for good”

Genesis 50:20

Give us Your patience

Give us power and enable us

to look at all our frustrations

to view setbacks,

and say to You,

We don’t know

what you’re doing, Father.

We don’t want to be

in this place.

We never thought

we’d be in this place.

But you are wise

And You are good

And we trust that You

are working something

wonderful.

So please Father

Strengthen us to wait patiently
