  1. We are waiting for a court date, so we can travel to Uganda and kiss those adorable little cheeks on our son. Thanks for your prayers!

    Thank you for speaking God's truth into the difficult place called waiting. Looking forward to all the posts this month. I am 36 and feel like I have been praying forever for a husband and family. Please pray that this desire may be granted. But even if it is not, that I would be full of joy and trust God's will for my life. Thank you for your encouragement! VB

  3. Dear God, let these women FEEL how near you are… how much you INTIMATELY love them. That they are not alone in their waits. That you will exchange their temporary pain for eternal worth.

    I've written each of your names down and will continue to pray this month. Please comment or email me if you'd like prayer also.

  4. I feel like everyone is waiting for something. I'm waiting for G-d to reveal what the next step in my life is, what my calling is, waiting for my future husband, waiting waiting waiting. But until then, I'm trying to seek His face. Thank you for choosing this subject. I'm looking forward to what He does through this month.

    From January this year, my Dad has been sick (a lung condition – COPD) and he is back at home now with tracheotomy tubes. He is on nasal feeding and has been making baby steps towards recovery..It is heartbreaking to see my Dad this way…We would love your prayers for his healing and for comfort and strength for my mom and also for all the family to trust the Lord through this entire process….Thank you!

  6. My heart breaks as I read the struggles so many of you are in. COPD… wow. I know how it feels to see your dad suffer. Serendipity – I added you to my prayer list, too. Those are huge things to wait for. I'm still waiting for my life's calling as well.

    Waiting for a fourth pregnancy after losing a baby in 2010 to ectopic pregnancy. Lost right tube in process and have a lot of internal scar tissue. Lovig my two beautiful girls, but don't feel like our family is complete. I long to carry and nurse another baby.

  8. "And perhaps you remember a time when life was…
    more simple.
    more certain.
    When life was lived rather than delayed."

    Umm..ouch. That pinged me deep inside. So glad I found your blog. Will definitely be following this series.

  9. I love the idea for your 31 days theme of waiting. Waiting is such a central part of our lives (all of our lives, of course). We have suffered through the loss of five babies through miscarriage, four pregnancies total since our first loss was a late second trimester loss of twin boys. Our hearts yearn to conceive, carry, deliver, and bring home our healthy baby or babies. We long to become pregant and carry to term. We would give anything to know why this has happened and to stop it from happening again. I believe in the power of prayer and would be honored if you'd add us to your list of prayers. I will be following along with your blog and I hope you will check out mine, too, as I blog for 31 days about hope, truth and gratitude at http://www.findyourspark.blogspot.com . Thank you for sharing your heart, Margot at FYS

    I just came upon this series from a link on Raising Arrows & your writing was a breath of fresh air for me today. I am in a season of waiting right now & this was great encouragement to me. I thought I'd take you up on your offer to pray!! 🙂 My name is Amber. I’m 32 years old, a wife to a wonderful husband & a mother to three precious little ones, 4 years old & under who has struggled with chronic pain/illness for 7 years now. I had our youngest son in December of 2011 & in February of 2012 a disc herniated in my back. At the same time I began having strange symptoms affecting my entire body like nothing I had ever had before. In March of 2012 I had surgery on my back & the disc issue is now resolved. However, the strange illness continues which causes pain, tingling & numbness & has left me unable to care for my children & home. Sitting, standing & holding my baby is very painful & I haven’t been able to go to church with my family for many months. My Mom takes care of the kids & our home now & though I can be out of bed more than before the toll of this illness affects every part of our lives. I’ve seen many doctors & specialists, had many tests & scans done for MS & other neurological diseases, but we still don’t know what is happening to me. My little girl asks when Mommy is going to get better & we long to have an answer to give her. God has been so faithful to our family & we praise Him for His good work in & through all of this hardship. Would you please pray that we would receive an answer soon, that it would not be a degenerative disease & that the Lord in His mercy would bring full restoration?

  11. My eyes just filled with tears seeing my name and wait written and pinned up on your corkboard. I am so humbled that you are earnestly praying for those of us who are in seasons of waiting. Thank you so much, Rachel.

    I'm comforted by knowing all of this is out of my hands – it means I don't have to fear there is something I did wrong that I haven't dated or that no one has been seriously interested in me before. I know He is writing the perfect story, whether that involves a husband or not. Thank you for this post, reinforcing that truth in my heart.

  12. Margot and Annie,
    I have had you on my lists since the day you left these comments. I only recently realized I never told you so. I am praying for you every day this month.

    You too, Annie, but we've already talked about that. 🙂
