Prayer for waiting

I'm in a surgery waiting room for the next 4 hours until my son's procedure is finished. This reminds me how hard it is to wait, to not control the outcome of something. Waiting is life, isn't it? We're aways waiting for things we want and waiting for things we don't want to be resolved. Waiting for them to be over. Fixed. Here's a prayer for those long hours you spend waiting and waiting and waiting for something to happen... or something to stop happening: Oh, Lord, I wait on you like I wait for the morning after a long night. I wait on you like a mother anticipating her baby's birth. I wait on you like a patient awaiting a diagnosis. I wait on you like a soldier who needs reinforcements. I wait on you like newlyweds on their first week apart. You have everything I need and everything I want. Help me to be patient  while I wait. Help me to be faith-filled  while I wait. Transform me into your image because I believe that you will me
