Teach Me, Lord, to Wait

Psalm 123:1-2
Unto thee lift I up mine eyes,
O thou that dwellest in the heavens.
Behold, as the eyes of servants look
unto the hand of their masters,
and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress;
so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God,
until that he have mercy upon us.

So many times when I think of waiting on God;
it includes waiting in prayer.

Waiting before I pray,
because I get involved in trying to figure things out myself
Waiting as I pray,
because I don’t know how or what to pray
Waiting as the groanings come,
as the faithful Intersessor brings my need to God
Waiting as the heart stills
Waiting as the sigh comes ‘Not my will’
Waiting as I rest beside still waters
Waiting as God works all things together
Waiting as God chooses the ansering time.

Teach Me, Lord, to Wait

Teach me, Lord, to wait – down on my knees.
Till in your own good time you’ll answer my pleas.
Teach me not to rely on what others do.
But to wait in prayer for an answer from you.

Chorus
They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.
They shall mount up with wings as eagles.
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
Teach me, Lord, Teach me, Lord, to wait!

Teach me, Lord, to wait – while hearts are aflame.
Let me humble my pride and call on your name.
Keep my faith renewed and my eyes on thee.
Let me be on this earth what you want me to be.

Chorus
They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength.
They shall mount up with wings as eagles.
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
Teach me, Lord, Teach me, Lord, to wait!
by Stuart Hamblen

May God bless our waiting
