Proverbs 23: 17-19 The Prayer of Expectation
This Prayer of Expectation is based on:
Proverbs 23:17-19 (AMP)
Let not your heart envy sinners, but continue in the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord all the day long.
For surely there is a latter end [a future and a reward], and your hope and expectation shall not be cut off.
Hear, my son, and be wise, and direct your mind in the way [of the Lord].
How can we ever desire God to answer our prayers when we don’t have any expectation on what we are praying for? We must not only Pray, hope, have faith and believe but we must wait with expectation!
We must expect what we are praying for or it will never show up!
Prayer of Expectation:
Father God, I come before you today and I know that you love me and that you have a plan for my future. This is a plan of hope and goodness because you are a good God. As I wait expectantly upon you, may I never envy the sinner. May I never be jealous of how you are blessing others around me because I know that I am next. My time is coming! I will continue to walk in a worshipful fear of you on a daily basis. Even though things may not look the way that I want them to in the natural, I believe that you have a beautiful future and reward for me. May my hope and expectation grow more and more each day as I look to your salvation and deliverance. Continue to direct my mind, heart and soul into the things that please you. May my feet ever walk in your path. I love you Lord and I wait in expectation on the fulfillment of your promises and ALL the prayers that I have prayed, in Jesus Name, Amen
Proverbs 23:17-19 King James Version (KJV)
Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the Lord all the day long.
For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.
Hear thou, my son, and be wise, and guide thine heart in the way.
