“No sacrifice which a lover would make for his beloved is too great for us to make for our enemy….if we pray for them, we are taking their distress and poverty, their guilt and perdition upon ourselves, and pleading to God for them. We are doing vicariously for them what they cannot do for themselves” Dietrich Bonhoeffer (ref#10, p148-150).
Reasons for Waiting for GOD:
Because You formed my inward parts and knitted me together in my mother’s womb (Ps 139:13), I will wait for You.
Because You search me thoroughly and know me (Ps 139:1), I will wait for You.
Because You understand my thoughts and are acquainted with all my ways (Ps 139:2-3), I will wait for You.
Because You are upright and make my path level (Isa 26:7), I will wait for You.
Because You draw near on the day I call to You (Lam 3:57), I will wait for You.
Because You hear my voice and take up my cause (Lam 3:56,58), I will wait for You.
