I usually post the Weekend Prayer Prompt on Saturday…but am spending this weekend catching up from being away from home three weekends in a row.  Laundry.  Housecleaning.  Cooking.  Taking a nap.

I didn’t want you to miss this prompt from Rachel.  Ken & I are in the yucky-long part of waiting for some prayers to be answered.  We need this prompt.  Maybe you do too.   

At the beginning of this week, take a moment to grab your prayer journal and pray for all the unknowns and “not yet” in your life.

 

Friends,

 
All of these (Abel, Noah, Abraham & Sarah, Isaac, Jacob) died in faith without having received the promises, but from a distance they saw and greeted them.
~ Hebrews 11:13
 
In a classic line from the movie The Princess Bride, Inigo Montoya mutters, “I hate waiting.” His sentiment echoes a disgruntledness that we sometimes feel in faith: a frustration that God has not yet fixed the world, a disappointment that God has not yet fixed us, a despair that a new day may never come.
 
Yet our ancestors in faith, who did not see the fulfillment of everything God had promised them; our ancestors in faith who at times struggled with God when life was uncertain & the way was unclear; our ancestors in faith saw glimpses God’s dream and they embraced it as though it was already part of the present.
 
Pause to pray for tomorrow — for all that is known and for all that is unknown — believing that God is faithful across time. (Here is my post for today.)
 
Peace to you,
Rachel
