Prayer To Overcome Failure - Prayer for Patience
Psalm 40:1 I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.
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.
Failure and rejection are powerful learning experiences, and God gives them to us for a reason. Lift up this prayer to the Lord when the sting of failure becomes overwhelming, but take comfort in knowing that the best is yet to come in His grand scheme for us.
Ever loving Father, it hurts to admit defeat to my own failures and shortcomings. Please give me the patience to not only accept this failure, but learn from it as well.
I know this is all part of Your plan for me, so I pray that I learn to be patient as I heal from these wounds. With You, I know there are better and brighter things in my future. I know that in due time, everything that is meant to be will fall into place.
With You watching over me, I pray that I am able to wait patiently and continue to praise Your name as I keep my head held high. Patience and time will heal me, so I pray for Your grace as I move on from this stumble. I lift this prayer in Your name, Amen.
