Prayer For Patience
Lord, Your timing is always perfect, never too early and never too late. Knowing that You hold the future, it is definitely worth the wait!
Teach me to be still in the midst of the storms for Your timing is always perfect.
Guide me accordingly, help me to make the right decisions that will only lead me to You. Search me, Oh Lord, for You alone know my heart.
I desire Your Holy presence as I await You patiently, Oh Lord. Bless me with all that I deserve, in Jesus' precious name I pray, Amen!
Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Your Word teaches me wisdom and fills me with newness of life.
As I come to you today, I bring my needs to you. Help me to lay down all my problems at your feet. Help me to lay down all my tangled thoughts and restless emotions.
Lord, I am seeking your peace and your patience. I want to learn to wait patiently for you to bring your answers to my prayers. I want to cooperate with your plans for me. Thank you for assuring me that your plans for me are good.
As I wait on you, I will continue to turn to your Word for comfort and direction. Your Word is solid and reliable.
Your Word steadies me. Your Word brings me truth. Your Word gives me strength. Your Word chases away my worry and my fears. Your Word refreshes me.
Thank you for your Word.
Teach me, my Lord, to be sweet and gentle in all the events of my life, in disappointments, in the thoughtlessness of others, in the insincerity of those I trusted, in the unfaithfulness of those on whom I relied. Let me forget myself so that I may enjoy the happiness of others. Let me always hide my little pains and heartaches so that I may be the only one to suffer from them. Teach me to profit by the suffering that comes across my path. Let me so use it that it may mellow me, not harden or embitter me; that it may make me patient, not irritable; that it may make me broad in my forgiveness, not narrow or proud or overbearing. May no one be less good for having come within my influence; no one less pure, less true, less kind, less noble, for having been a fellow traveler with me on our journey towards eternal life. As I meet with one cross after another, let me whisper a word of love to You. May my life be lived in the supernatural, full of power for good, and strong in its purpose of sanctity. Amen.
O God, who didst crush the pride of the enemy by the long-suffering of Thine Only-begotten Son: grant, we beseech Thee, that we may worthily recall those things which in His tender love He bore for us; and thus following His example may patiently endure all our adversities.
Lord, I can't move. I can't sit still or stand. I can't breathe. I think I'm dying. Everything's falling apart inside me and around me. I don't know what to do.
Please wrap your arms around me and don't ever let go. Slow my racing heart. Clear my spinning head. Calm my frantic lungs. I need Your patience to breathe through this moment and make it to the next. Thank you for being a God of the moment, a God who cares, a God able to guard my heart and mind. Amen
Glory be to Your matchless Name! It is through You, whom I have gained access by faith into this grace in which I now stand. I boast in the hope that Your glory gives me. Not only this, but I rejoice in my sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope. Help me be endure my sufferings, help me to embrace each season in my life. Amen.
Awesome God, You are not slow in keeping my promise, as I understand slowness. Instead You are patient with me, not wanting me to perish. I pray that as You are faithful to me, I remain faithful to You knowing that the things that I have not yet received shall come. Just as You are patient with me, I pray that I patiently await Your will to come to pass. Amen.
Lord, I'm humanwhich often makes me oblivious to what's around me. I'm in so much of a hurry to get my own stuff done, I forget to stop and notice what's going on with everyone else.
Nudge me when I get distracted and caught up in myself. Remind me that I need my family and friends, and they need me. Thank you for knowing we weren't meant to walk through life alone and for giving us the opportunity be Jesus to each other. Thank you for helping me shine for you.
