How Long, O Lord? revised challenge entry

I seek Thy face at dawns first light
Again, sleep escaped my bed in the night.
In humble worship I bow my knee to Thee
Still my heart, O God, I must plea....

I’m tried in the furnace of circumstance,
Awaiting Thy mercies and deliverance.
Arise O Lord, wilst Thou deliver me?
What is my life……but to honor Thee?

How long O Lord wilt Thou forget?
Have Thou not received the prayers I sent?
Thy voice is silent, Thy Spirit is still…..
While I thirst and hunger to do Thy will.

Mine enemies flourish at my expense
Thy goodness and mercy, please recompense.
For rivers of tears I’ve cried in vain…..
O Lord wilt Thou not remove this pain?

My darkness is heavy, my sorrow consumes.
My soul is weary, while suffering looms.
Mine enemy waits….for my slow demise,
He taunts in mine ear to “compromise.”

How long O Lord wilt Thou forget?
As a consuming fire Thy wrath has beset!
Thy glory is hidden in my dark distress….
I plead with Thee Lord for Thy tenderness.

For I am alone, no friend I may trust.
Send my body to the grave - return to dust.
For death would be more than a sweet relief….
This bitterness of breath is sorrow and grief.

Search my soul O Lord for sin and shame,
If there be unrighteousness, please proclaim.
Even thru suffering Thy glory I declare
Thy tender mercies – none other can compare….

How long O Lord wilt Thou forget?
Bring comfort to Thy servant without regret.
Thou alone O Lord, art my hiding place of old
My shelter and strength from the barren cold

Thou spoke into existence the earth and sea,
Thy heavens declare the majesty of Thee.
If stars could speak, Thy name they would praise!
The sun and moon shine Thy light in their rays..

My Redeemer lives – Thy name is forevermore!
Of evil and wickedness Thou heart doth abhor.
Who can speak in thunder and calm the storm,
Thou art the Almighty – Thy wonders to perform!

How long shall I wait for Thy crown and Thy robe?
O Lord till that day, teach me…….the patience of Job.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

WOW! This is an awesome prayer from the depths of your soul. Many of us can relate to this. We have all been there one time or another. This would be an awesome one to give to one of my Loved ones who is going through extreme trials right now. God Bless You immensely! In Christ, Danette

Julia, I enjoyed this heartfelt prayer. It brings me joy knowing God hears our prayers and answers our prayers. Though He sometimes tarry He will perform. His word will surely come to pass. Great write!!!
