How many times have you been so troubled with a specific need that you feel agitated, upset, and find it hard to concentrate on anything else?
We pray and pray again and ask God to help in this need, often knowing there is nothing we can do but wait and pray some more.
What comfort do we have from God’s word while we wait? What promises can we can cling to? Many times it is helpful to put a verse (or several!) on the mirror, on the car dash, on your phone or computer screensaver, on the refrigerator… places we will see them often to be reminded to trust in God as we pray, and find comfort in Him.
Here are some promises that have meant a lot to me (change as needed) and maybe will be a blessing to you also:
