Expectant Lament

| | Comments (3)

Today's reading: Psalm 6:1-10

David is in a difficult place physically and emotionally. He's tired and weary, and in this state he humbly asks God for relief. Yet even though his circumstances seem dire, David doesn't lose heart in God. Instead, he is expectant for God to move on his behalf and confidently closes his prayer by proclaiming that the Lord has heard and accepted his prayer and that He would take action.

How does praying candidly to God influence your thinking, attitude and actions? Do you pray expectant prayers? In other words, do you believe that God hears your prayers and pray with the expectation that He will answer them? Why is this important? Tami

I pray to the Father expecting Him to hear and answer in his time and in his will for his name's sake. He loves and wants the best for his own. I pray until I feel his peace knowing the answer is on the way, now or later. He loves me unconditionally. What a great and loving God whom I love with all my heart.

I have prayed for my own healing for my physical pain issues. I have asked and begged for Jesus to take away this 24/7 pain I have. I believe God has all the power to do so and believe in miracles. Pain relief just has not come yet in the past 9 years I have asked. I know in the end Jesus won the battle already. I just wish I could find some relief soon!!


Thanks for sharing about your ongoing pain issues. Just wanted to let you know that I prayed along with you, asking God to give you some relief today.
