    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 With Patience

    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.

    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.

    Teach Us Patience

    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.

    Psalm 37:7 – Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.

    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.

    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 ones to suffer from them.

    Teach us to be patient in our suffering and learn to profit from 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.

    2 Peter 3:9 – The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

    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 worse off for having come within our influence. No one less pure, or less noble, for having been a fellow believer with us, in our journey towards eternal life with You Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!

    James 1:2-4 – Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
