“…In quietness and trust is your strength…”
(Isaiah 30:15)
Please read today’s passage-of-focus followed by lyrics and link to audio of the following song of worship, then document your PRAYER conversation for the day based on your own time of reflection; in other words, from ways in which the material speaks to your spirit and, if applicable, nudges you to speak to God.
Waiting Here for You
Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves and Martin Smith 2011
If faith can move the mountains
Let the mountains move
We come with expectation
Waiting here for you, waiting here for you
You’re the Lord of all creation
And still you know my heart
The Author of Salvation
You’ve loved us from the start
Waiting here for You
With our hands lifted high in praise
And it’s You we adore
Singing Alleluia
You are everything You’ve promised
Your faithfulness is true
And we’re desperate for Your presence
All we need is You
We will wait for You Lord
In step with You, Lord
We will sing alleluia
Singing alleluia, alleluia
Singing alleluia, alleluia
See Christy Nockels’ performance of the hymn here.
Conclude Day 17 by reflecting on the above hymn and passage of focus – how do they speak to you personally? – then document your PRAYER conversation for today in light of your answers.
Praise and Thanksgiving:
            In your own words, who is God to you personally? What has He done for you specifically
            in the past day or so – especially the little things – that surprised you or drew you
            appreciation?
Repentance:
This one seems obvious, but consider making a deliberate commitment to go
            beyond “I’m sorry” and make a sincere commitment to do your best through Christ
            to lay these sins aside.
Adoration:
            Love Him. Worship Him. And don’t be afraid to do so with hymns or other songs of
            worship…sometimes mere words may not seem adequate to you. That’s ok!
Yielding:
Is there something you need to turn over to God? A circumstance you can’t control?
            Complicated relationship? Your own will that’s struggling with His will?
Expectation:
What are your concerns, your hopes, your dreams for your church? Your family?
Friends? Not-so-much friends? Yourself?
Restoration:
            End your conversation with the firm knowledge that you are God’s and God is yours.
            Affirm your trust in His all-powerful, never-ending presence in your life. Thank Him
            again for what He’s done for you in the past and what He will do for you in the future
            that’s in accordance with His will. This is an important and proactive demonstration of
            your faith in Him.
