Prayer For Patience With Myself
Psalm 27:14 Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.
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.
Learning to be patient with ourselves is one of the toughest life lessons. But, remember there’s no rush to understand a certain concept or master a new skill right away. We will all become who we are meant to be in due time through God’s will.
So let’s turn to this prayer to seek patience, as good things will definitely come to those who wait.
Dearest Lord, thank You for the talents You have blessed me with. I do my best to make good use of these gifts by trying to share them with others and also improve on them. But, sometimes I falter in these efforts. Sometimes, no matter how hard I work on myself, I don’t feel any improvement in what I do.
For this, I ask that You allow me the grace of patience. I know I need to take things a day at a time. I want to be better for You, Lord, but I know I can’t rush these things. Please teach me to be patient with myself, because I know that my hard work will be for naught if I don’t have the patience to persevere. Everything will fall into place in due time, as everything is done according to Your will. This I pray to You Lord, Amen.
