Prayer is the ultimate privilege that Christians have in “the waiting game.” I realize this as I ponder the extraordinary outlet of communication with our Heavenly Father that the Holy Spirit equips us with.
I see this in full-color as I pray. Rest. Wait.
- I pray because I have unwavering faith and I long to communicate with my Father.
- I rest because I fully believe that God has total control.
- I wait because God has placed in my heart the yearning for something more.
Those three actions (to rest, to pray, to wait) ARE NOT independent of each other. A person must DO all three actively in order to find full contentment!
