Patience And Prayer
When we offer up our prayers to God,
we want answers without delay.
But sometimes God will take His time
and He’ll answer in His own way.
We need to learn more patience
and wait for Him to speak.
We know not when we’ll hear from Him,
but His guidance we should seek.
God will always hear our prayers,
but He may feel we don’t need
the things that we have asked of Him.
Could we have asked them out of greed?
We should not pray for earthly things,
but thank God for His care.
Thank Him for His constant love,
and for His always being there.
We should thank Him for the hope we have
through His wonderful salvation plan,
the plan He masterminded before He
ever created man.
We must be patient and wait on the Lord,
for He’ll answer all our prayers.
We must accept His answer and obey His will,
And we can overcome our earthly cares.
