PRAYER FOR PATIENCE

“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

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.

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. Amen.
