A Daily Prayer For Patience
Colossians 3:12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
Patience is truly a virtue. So many aspects of our lives call for patience, whether it be waiting in line at the grocery store or holding on for a brighter tomorrow. Regardless of what you’re waiting for, know that God is always with us, both for the good and the bad in life. Bible verses about patience teach us that we must be patient in His plan for us, especially when we are going through some hard times. And prayer for patience goes a long way.
Consider the value of patience in the bible: Joseph waited 13 years before God fulfilled His promise and Abraham waited 25 years for a divine encounter with God through a burning bush. Meanwhile, Moses was left stranded in the wilderness for 40 years before God showed Him the way to the Promised Land and Jesus waited for 30 years to fulfill His role as our Savior. To make a person great, God breaks them first before putting the right pieces together.
So let’s turn to this prayer to seek patience, as good things will definitely come to those who wait.
Dear God, thank You for blessing me with a new day. Thank You for allowing me to carry on Your will on this brand new morning. I ask that You continue to watch over me as I face whatever challenges may come my way today.
Lord, give me patience for today, so that I may overcome any difficult tasks ahead. Nothing is impossible with You by my side, and I pray that Your Holy Spirit showers me with grace and patience to see the end of the day with my head held high. I lift up everything to You Lord. Amen.
