Prayer For Patience With Others
And Lord, please help me never to forget to be grateful for what you have provided. It's easy for me to see all the things I don't have. The things that aren't coming right now. But Lord, I also ask that you remind me that there are so many things here and now that I should be thankful for in my life. I sometimes forget that gratitude toward my friends, my family, my teachers. It's easy to whine, but harder at times to look at your glory around me. Amen
God, I'm just struggling right now with that patience. I see my friends getting the things that they desire. I see others moving forward in their lives, and I see myself staying right here. I just keep waiting, God. It never seems to move forward. Please let me see my purpose in this moment. Please give me the ability to stay in this moment and appreciate the joy in it. Don't allow me to forget that you ask us to live not just for the future, but for the moment that we're in.
Lord, we pray for those who wrestle with mental health issues. Grant them support, care, understanding and love.
We pray for families trying to give support. Lord, supply energy, rest, patience and others to help.
We pray for the wider support network, medical professionals, support staff and volunteers.
Protect them from being overwhelmed. Encourage them and give wisdom.
In Jesus' name
Gracious Lord, we thank you for people who love us. Who have cared for us and been there for us (we take a few seconds of silence to picture them.)
Thank you for their advice, their kindness and their prayers.
Thank you Lord Jesus for this new day
I bask in the glory if your love
Let me be able to give help someone today to witness for you.
I love you Lord give me patience
For it is all in your timing
Thy will be done
Amen & Amen
Praise be given to Your Holy name for Your forbearance and mercy. You have dealt gently with your children in love. You have been patient with me in my humanness and stubbornness. Lord, through the work of Your Spirit, prompt me to be more jubilant in hope, more patient in times of trouble, and more consistent in my prayer life. Teach me, Lord, to wait with faith and expectancy, and may my trials be seen as times for growth in grace. Through Christ our Lord, I pray. Amen.
Father, You love us perfectly, and promise to defend us. You hear us and are concerned about us. Help us to trust You with our daily skirmishes, and waging wars. Daily, remind us to sit with You and soak in the powerful wisdom available to us in Your Word. Help us to remember Psalm 56 when we are afraid. Periods of waiting often lead us to fear, and fear can chip away at our trust and faith. AMEN
Lord, some of Your people are hard to love. They can be moody, mean, difficult, and impossible to understand. They blame me for things I didn't do and have expectations I can't meet. Sometimes I wish You hadn't put them in my life.
I need You to show me how much You love them. Reveal what You see under the surface, where they're hurting, and tell me how to make a difference. Thank you for giving me your patience to be kind and compassionate when I don't have my own and for loving me when I'm the one who's difficult in someone else's life. Amen
