Most of us have heard it said “Be careful what you pray for; you just might get it!” And what if your prayer is for patience? No one wants the trials to develop patience, right? But oh, how I need patience. Yesterday I had to just stop and pray for it. Ask and you shall receive. So I’m sharing a prayer for patience with you…
A Prayer for Patience
Today I feel like every task is a race;
I’m falling short on giving grace.
It’s a scary thing to ask for what I need;
I recognize lessons to be conceived.
In this moment, I need your abundant grace
And request your strength to slow my pace.
Jesus, would you grant me patience
And your Holy Spirit to be my guide?
Give me a willing ear to listen;
A gracious hand would you provide?
May my mouth speak only with love;
And my heart reflect light from above.
Please help my mind focus intentionally,
And my actions praise you eternally.
