The Psalms give us wonderful lessons in not only how to pray, but how to approach God…even when we want Him to hurry up.
It’s okay to ask God to hurry…
Psalm 70 (NKJV)
Make haste, O God, to deliver me!
Make haste to help me, O Lord!
2 Let them be ashamed and confounded
Who seek my life;
Let them be turned back[a] and confused
Who desire my hurt.
3 Let them be turned back because of their shame,
Who say, “Aha, aha!”
4 Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
And let those who love Your salvation say continually,
“Let God be magnified!”
5 But I am poor and needy;
Make haste to me, O God!
You are my help and my deliverer;
O Lord, do not delay.
Psalm 71:12 (NKJV)
12 O God, do not be far from me;
O my God, make haste to help me!
Psalm 118:25 (NKJV)
25 Save now, I pray, O Lord;
O Lord, I pray, send now prosperity.
John 11:21 (NKJV)
21 Now Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died.
Isaiah 40:31 (NKJV)
31 But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
