Prayer For Patience And Perseverance
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, 20 because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.
Romans 5:4-6 NIV
4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.
I pray to the Lord to bless me with wisdom to comprehend every single situation in my daily life specially in my work place, I pray to the Lord to bless me with never ending patience, new learnings to mentor and train my team everyday. Impart the best of my knowledge and ability to inspire people around me. I pray to the Lord to always remind me about perseverance, so that ai will be able to accomplish the goals i have set in my career, family and those who are in need. I pray to the Lord to touch my heart, so i will only give love and not hate. Amen.
Bless us, Lord, as we realise
the grace of patience and perseverance
in our life of faith.
Bless us as we meet challenges to our faith,
as it speaks a language that does not always
sit easily with modern thought.
Bless us, during this Season of Lent,
as we overcome the temptation
to give up or give in.
James 1:2-4. Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
Heavenly Father, in Your strength I pray that I may run the race that is set before me with patient endurance, looking to Jesus, Who is the author and finisher of my faith, and the solid Rock upon which I stand. Father, I recognise that this is a spiritual race and the strength and stamina I need is not physical but spiritual - spiritual strength, spiritual perseverance and spiritual endurance. AMEN
Dear Lord, I know how important it is that we are strong in the Lord and in the strength of Your power and to know that we are not fighting against a physical enemy but an evil and powerful spiritual enemy, whose chief desire is to shipwreck the witness of those that are united with Christ and render them powerless against the wicked schemes and strategies of the devil. Give us a greater understanding and awareness of the enemy's tactics and help us to realise the importance of covering ourselves completely in our spiritual armour, so that we are spiritually prepared and spiritually equipped to stand firm against their evil plots and ploys. AMEN
Holy God, Your word states that the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it lingers, I must wait for it, for it will certainly come and will not delay. Lord, give me the strength to wait upon Your promises. Help me to stay patient when the end goal seems so far out of reach. Just as I must wait for Your revelation, I pray that I learn to wait patiently with understanding for all things to come to pass in my life. Amen.
Lord, it doesn't matter how I old get; adulting is hard. Someone should've told me that most of being a grown up was making it up as you go along. That there wasn't some magic manual that would be imprinted on my brain. The responsibilities keep piling onfamily, financial, my future. It never ends.
Give me your patience to handle the big and small. Slow me down. Teach me how to be calm. I don't want to waste my life frazzled, exhausted, and weighted down. Thank you for offering me rest and for not making me to do life on my own. Amen
