Prayer For Patience and Strength In Difficult Times
Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
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.
It is during times of struggle that our strength to persevere is truly put to the test. We must learn to be patient in tough times because ultimately, this is all a part of God’s plan for us. so find strength and patience in God as you wade through these rough waters.
Almighty Father, I offer this prayer to You as I seek guidance during this difficult period in my life. Help me to overcome this hurdle before me, because I know that is all it is: a road bump that is conquerable with You by my side.
Grant me the fortitude to remain firm in my efforts, because although I may struggle today, tomorrow will always bring a new day. No matter how much I plea for this tough period to pass, I know I must be patient and keep moving forward to the best of my abilities.
With You watching over me, I know that any adversity will be resolved sooner rather than later. I praise Your name in everything that I do. Amen.
