Prayer for patience

Heavenly Father, we pray for the virtue of patience, in our hearts, homes and our lives. We want to wait patiently for Your will to enfold in our lives. May we learn to wait patiently for You to bring Your answers to our prayers. We want to cooperate and wait on Your plans for us.

Hebrews 4 : 12 For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Waiting Patiently

As we wait on You, we pray to turn to Your Word for comfort and direction.

  • Your Word is solid and reliable.
  • The Word brings us truth.
  • Your Word gives us strength.
  • The Mighty Word of God chases away our worries and our fears.
  • The Gentle Word refreshes us.

Romans 5 : 3- 4 Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces.

Teach Us To Be Patient

Lord, teach us to be patient - with life, with people, and with ourselves. We sometimes try to hurry things along too much, and we push for answers before the time is right.

Teach us to trust Your sense of timing rather than our own and to surrender our will to Your greater and wiser plan.

Help us let life unfold slowly, and teach us to savor each experience and learn the lessons behind each story.

James 5 : 7 Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains.

Tolerance and Patience

Teach us Lord, to be sweet and gentle in all the events of our lives, in disappointments, in the thoughtlessness of others, in the insincerity of those we trust, in the unfaithfulness of those on whom we rely on.

Let us forget ourselves so that we may enjoy the happiness of others. Let us always hide our little pains and heartaches so that we may be the only one to suffer from them.

Teach us to be patient in our suffering and learn to profit by the suffering that comes across our path.

Colossians 1 : 11 May you be strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy.

The Virtue of Patience

Lord we ask You to grant us the virtue of patience. We pray that it may mellow us, not harden or embitter us, that it may make us not irritable. That it may make us broad in our forgiveness, and never narrow, proud or overbearing.

May no one be less good for having come within our influence. No one less pure, less true, less kind, less noble, for having been a fellow believer with us, in our journey towards an eternal life with You Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!

  1. This is an excellent prayer. I needed to hear this this morning. Sometimes, we get really impatient with ourselves when we don’t get it right away. This prayer is teaching me about patience with myself. I have patience with others, but not with myself.

  2. Today I come with a surprised look on my face. I was expecting to see another website with my usual daily ‘Salvation’ briefing. But, here it is Christians TT. And. Lo & behold, my prayer for patience ‘saved by a clock’ and Evie’s prayer as a nurse. Good Morning Evie. As Shakespeare said ‘God works in Mysterious ways.’ -I dunno, I never studied Shakespeare, just this ‘sentence.’

  3. Before I came to you Jesus, Patience was never my strong point…..I was an RN so I had lots of patience in my job but never a lot of patience for myself, Sometimes it’s easier to exercise patience with other people, than it is with ourselves. For most of us Patience does not come naturally for ourselves but with Gods help we can work at it, thank you Lord…….
    .”Yahweh is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness”.
    Psalm 103:8,

  4. Today my wall clock stopped running. Reasonably a new battery, put it in on time change day here in TX. But the second hand doesn’t work anymore. God might feel about us like that sometime, not that he isn’t patient. However I need to be as patient with this wall clock as I hope Christ and Holy Dad (protestant) is with me. Patience , it’s a GOOD thing really. Thank you clock for having the personality with the Holy Spirit to teach me that lesson. AMEN.
