My wife gets this devotional in her email and today the prayer was the perfect prayer for us . . .
God, I have heard that you are never late, seldom early, but always on time. When I think back through the experiences of my life, I can see the truth in that statement. Thank you for always being on time. Thank you for the lessons you have taught me through waiting, through suffering, through the storms and valleys and for your faithfulness always. Thank you for the rays of sun that peaked through the clouds in the way of a praying spirit and helping hand from other Christians. Thank you for the sun that shone brightly after the storms and cloudy days, and for your son who is my sun and shield, the Lord Jesus Christ. If you had always been on my time schedule, I wouldn’t have learned much in life, so I am thankful that you are always on time according to your schedule. I praise you for who you are and all you’ve done. May I be found worthy in your sight through the blood of the Savior. In His name I pray, amen.
