Perseverance in Prayer

As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy. – James 5:11 NIV
 
I feel like I’ve been praying forever for a situation that does not seem to be changing, Lord. I feel like Job–Here I am on my knees in prayer while the entire world dissolves around me. But I know that You are in control. You know all things. So once again, I lift my concern  up to You, confident that You will handle the situation in Your timing. Amen.
