Prayer For Patience In the Workplace
2 Chronicles 15:7 But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded.
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.
We spend a lot of time at the workplace, and ultimately, it can sometimes become a battlefield that tests our patience. With this prayer, we ask God to grace us with the gift of patience, so that we may all work together harmoniously in His holy name.
Almighty Father, I lift this prayer to You with a struggling heart. Work has become even more challenging these days, causing my spirit to falter, no matter how much I try to push on.
I pray that You grant me the patience and strength to persevere, as I know this hardship is only temporary. Please grant me clarity, that I may open my eyes to my own faults in order to improve on them. I pray that my colleagues continue to be patient with me as well while I continue to pick myself back up.
We don’t always get along, but I know through You, we can learn to work together in harmony. Everything we do is for You, Lord, and so I pray that my colleagues and I learn how to operate as a single unit whose unified goal is to use our talents in Your name. Amen.
