Prayers for Patience

Prayer for Waiting on God’s Perfect Timing:

Philippians 4:6Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

Lord, I just want to thank you for being so patient with me. I feel I mess up so often, yet you are faithful to forgive me and love me. I know there is nothing that can separate me from your love.

I come to you today seeking your help in developing more patience in my life. Sometimes I just lose it. I know that patience is a virtue that is essential for living a peaceful and fulfilling life, but it is something that I struggle with.

Please give me the strength and the courage to be patient in all things, even when things are difficult or when I am faced with challenges and setbacks. Help me to remember that everything has its own time and that your timing is perfect. 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.” Give me the patience of the farmer. Help me trust in your perfect timing.

I pray that you would give me the ability to wait on you and to trust in your plan for my life, even when I don’t understand it. Help me to be patient with others, to show kindness and understanding even when they are difficult to deal with.

I know that I cannot do this on my own and I humbly ask for your help and guidance as I strive to become a more patient person.

In your holy name I pray, Amen.

Galatians 6:9 “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Prayer for Patience When I Don’t Get What I Prayed For

Romans 8:25 “But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.”

Lord, please help me with my runaway thinking. Help me realize you know my prayer requests even before I ask you. Remove my doubt! I need patience when I think you aren’t listening; I need a daily reminder that when I don’t get an answer, that may be the answer. Your timing is perfect–I need to exercise my faith in that area.

I know that patience is a fruit of the Spirit, and I ask that you would help me to grow in this area. I ask for your grace to be able to wait on you, to trust in your timing, and to be able to respond to difficult situations with love and kindness. Help me to put my trust in you and to not be anxious about things that are out of my control. If your answer is “no” concerning one of my requests, please help me accept your answer in faith, knowing that you are doing something in my life. Romans 8:25 “But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.”

We pray all this in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Psalm 27:14 “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”
