Prayer For Perseverance And Patience
Hebrews 10:36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
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 can be difficult to keep moving forward after we have been pushed down time and time again. However, we must persevere especially in times of difficulty, as this becomes a test of strength and faith in the Lord.
Dear God, I come to You in my time of need. Help me find the courage to keep going, especially now when times seem bleak. I know You would never abandon me, as You are always watching over me even on my bad days.
With this prayer, I ask for the strength of mind to keep moving forward. I know this hardship will not last, but I will only be able to come out of it on the other side much stronger if I hold on to the patience in my heart. Help me persevere through the pain, because I know it will all be worth it in the end. Amen.
