10 Prayers for Patience

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer

Romans 12:12

Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding, but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.

Proverbs 14:29

Sometimes when you are driving in adverse weather conditions, you take your time because visibility is poor and your car may not be as stable as it would be in ideal weather. You know that slowly but surely you will get to your destination if you patiently and cautiously drive through the dangerous road.

Our daily lives are filled with instances like that. There are times when we cannot really see the road ahead. There are times when it feels like we are going nowhere and we are pressured into taking shortcuts that will get us to our destinations faster.

As Christians, we must be happy that we have the Lord on our side. We are convinced that we are on the right path to heaven and any shortcuts or deviations will end up hurting us.

As we walk with the Lord, we should know that he will not lead us astray. We should stay the course and never be tempted to move away from it. There are those who speed up on roads and end up at their destinations either injured or deceased. All these warn us to be patient and live in hope and faith in the Lord, knowing that no matter how long it takes we will reach the Promised Land.

Patience is a virtue and being known as a patient person makes you approachable and dependable. Be patient in your marriage, workplace, place of business, as a parent, and everywhere you find yourself. Do not fly off the handle every time you hear something depressing or annoying.

Take deep breaths and find your work carefully. Get into this habit of gentility and your life will be filled with peace instead of mayhem. As Christians, we have the responsibility to attract people to us not drive them away. People should be able to come to you with their issues for resolution because of your gentility, patience, and understanding nature.

Pray for patience. Sometimes it is difficult to stay patient and wait on the Lord when we go through trying times. This is why we must ask him for strength to be able to overcome our human inhibitions. Sometimes it just takes a few more moments of patience to get a big breakthrough. Just keep going and waiting on the Lord whilst doing his will and your redemption will come.

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up and also

Galatians 6:9

2 Chronicles 15:7 says But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded. This tells us of an impending victory that we must not miss out on.
