Prayer For Patience While Waiting
Romans 8:25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.
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.
Often, it’s when we’re waiting on something we have prayed for that we become the most impatient. It is only human. But, we must remain steadfast in our faith and wait patiently for the blessings God will grant us in due time.
Heavenly Father, I know You are with me in everything that I do. Although it seems my prayers have gone unanswered, I know You are simply biding your time.
You have answered all my prayers before, so I know You will not abandon me this time around either. I pray for patience to wait and see what You have in store for me. You are always patient with me, and I pray that I learn to be patient and have faith in Your plan.
I know that if it’s meant for me, it will happen. If things fall through, then I know You only have something better planned ahead. Everything I do is for the glory of Your name, Amen.
