Afternoon prayer for anyone who’s feeling stuck.

Father God in Jesus name, I’m coming to you because, right now, I feel like I’m stuck in limbo. I’m not where I think that I should be in life. I’ve been waiting for my prayers to be answered regarding a specific matter, and at this point, I don’t know if I should continue to wait, or if I should give that desire up, all together. Your Word says, if I delight myself in you, that you would give me the desires of my heart.

Your Word also says, no good thing will you withhold from those who walk upright. My desire isn’t for anything vain. You know my heart, and whatever desire I have, you put it there, but the manifestation of what I’ve been believing you for is taking sooo long, and I feel stuck, and because I feel stuck, I’ve grown weak. I need your strength to keep on, keeping on. Keep me from going outside of your Will to attain the things I want.

Keep me from choosing the wrong people to fill my circle, during those times when my life feels incomplete. Keep me focused on you, so that I won’t cope with my failings or shortcomings by turning to destructive addictions disguised as euphoria, but is really only temporary pleasures but long live the pain. Your Word says, I may make my plans, but you determine my steps. If you are telling me no, then give me the strength of heart and the peace of mind to deal with that. If you are saying, not yet, give me the spirit to trust you and the perseverance needed to continue walking, show me what to do while I wait.

If you have said yes, and my blessing has been staring me in the face the whole time, then give me the wisdom and the courage to seize the opportunity in faith. Help me to focus on the gift of the present and keep me from the temptations of my past. I won’t do this alone. I’ve tried and failed numerous times, and I surrender God. I need your help.

Thank you for keeping my feet planted. Thank you for always taking care of me. Forgive me for becoming too focused on this one thing, when you’ve blessed me with so many others. I realize true happiness doesn’t come from the things I don’t have, it comes from being grateful for the things I do have. In Jesus name. Amen.
