You are the creator of time and the orchestrator of all things. You know the desires of my heart and You understand the struggles of waiting. I come before You today asking for Your strength and patience as I wait for Your perfect timing in my life. Help me to trust in Your plans and to remain steadfast in my faith, even when I grow weary and restless. Teach me to wait with a peaceful heart and a steadfast spirit, knowing that Your timing is always perfect.

Grant me the wisdom to discern Your will and the patience to wait for Your perfect timing. Help me to cultivate a heart of patience and trust in You, knowing that You are always working for my good. Give me the grace to embrace the waiting as an opportunity for growth and spiritual maturity. Help me to be patient in all things, knowing that Your timing is always perfect and Your plans are always for my ultimate good.

May Your peace and patience fill my heart as I wait for Your promises to be fulfilled. Strengthen me to wait with hope and trust in Your unfailing love. Help me to surrender my timeline and my expectations, and to rest in the assurance that You are always working for my good, even in the waiting. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
