Jesus Every Day: 10 Prayers To Awaken Your Soul

DAY 9 OF 10

A Prayer to Embrace Slowness


I admit that I often think you’re too slow. Forgive me for the doubt and impatience that typify my days. Perhaps it’s because I live in a culture of convenience, and I’m accustomed to getting whatever I want in my perfect timing—so much so that I forget the beauty of your actual, perfect timing.

Thank you that you exercise patience for my sake. I want to return the favor and be patient for your sake. As I pray this, I’m reminded of your great patience toward me when I was far from you. Thank you for rescuing me.

Help me remember your ways when I grow impatient for my friends and family members to repent before you. I can’t determine the moment they will bend the knee, but I certainly can pray that you will intersect their lives in surprising ways. Send other believers into their lives. Speak to them through powerful dreams. Give each person a longing for you that they can’t understand. Keep them thirsty for your kingdom.

I choose today to rest in knowing you’ve got this whole world in the palm of your hand. Please build your kingdom, and start with me.
