The Lord God Who Answers Prayers

Lord God who answers prayers of the saints,
We ask in the name of your son and
You answer in the honour of your name.
We ask that your will be done and
You move in your ways till the midnight sun.
In your kingdom, it shall be done.

We ask your plans to fulfil and
Your answer is to be still,
We ask to accomplish your purpose
You pledge your allegiance to your people,
Your priorities are right and they are your children
In your timing, it shall all be done.

You give chances and you give choices,
You give grace and you give praises
You give honour to the disgraced and
You place the misplaced in your chosen space,
You answer when we call and
You shower your goodness upon all,
By your grace, it shall be done

Your ways are not our ways and your thoughts are not our thoughts,
Your Yes is your Yes and Your No is your No.
Not one of your words return to you void,
Not one of your promises do you not deploy,
All of them are your blessings for us to employ,
Through the night and through the days,
It shall all come to be done.

You do not leave any stone unturned,
You do not leave kingdoms upturned,
You give kings the wisdom to rule and
You establish their dynasties until eternity,
You give grace to the humble and
The proud at heart you cause to stumble,
In your perfect ways, it shall all be done

You give peace to the troubled, strength to the weary,
You sustain, you provide and you protect the needy,
You give hope to the hopeless, help to the helpless and homes to the homeless,
You give light in the dark, courage to the fearful and health to the sick,
Family to the lonely, friends to the isolated
The life you have restored, minds you have renewed,
In your power and your might, it is all done

You do not deceive us into believing
You do not precede your timing
You do not reject when we ask, Your answer is to wait and trust
You do not deny what we desire
No good thing do you withhold from your loved ones

You never keep us waiting and weary
You never keep us praying and hopeless
You never keep us believing and doubting
You always keep us trusting in your perfect timing
It shall be done

I will be careful what I ask of the Lord God
For I might just get it
I will be ready for what I ask of the Lord God
For a trial might come my way
I will be patient in my requests to the Lord God
For His ways are not my ways and his thoughts are not my thoughts
I will endure and be faithful in waiting
For the Lord God honours the faithfulness of His saints
