Patience is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit. Life every day is a constant struggle. All of us seek ways to illuminate the darkest corner of our lives through the things we see, the people we talk to, the food we eat, and interesting places we visit, just to remind us of our purpose.
Along the journey, we lose our patience and sometimes ask ourselves, “Why do we need to go on?”. As the Bible says in Galatians 6:9, “Let’s not become discouraged in doing good, for in due time we will reap, if we do not become weary.”
Whenever we think of God, we think of His Kingdom, and we surely desire to go to Paradise with God. However, the way to eternal salvation is narrow, and patience is one of the important virtues every soul needs. It is our weapon to be with God.
We’ve written some prayers for patience which we hope would help us cope with the daily obstacles in our lives. There’s no doubt that we will come across instances in which we will need tons of patience and understanding.
Dearest Jesus, when in times I become impatient with what I do, fill me with Your Most Holy Spirit to become patient. Help me to keep going when the load I carry feels heavy and when my soul gets weary while following You. With the virtue of patience that comes from You, may you take me to the path of holiness like the angels and saints in heaven. Amen.
Dear Jesus, I’m praying for patience today since I can’t seem to wait much longer to get better. I’ve been unwell for so long that I’m getting frustrated when I have to take my medicine, talk to physicians and have tests done, and when I have to lay in bed all day feeling useless. I don’t want to burden my family or the person who is responsible for my care. It’s not easy, and I can see how much it bothers them to see me in this state every day. At this moment, I humbly ask for patience so that I will not be frightened or nervous, but rather trust Your Mercy and hope for recovery in line with Your will. Amen.
When we apply for a job, we get frustrated when the companies to which we applied for don’t get back to us. We make follow-up calls until we get the results because we cannot wait any longer.
For couples who are so willing to bear a child are often sad and worry, when they fail each time they try.
Doing routine work such as going to work, doing our groceries, waiting in a queue to be served or to buy what we need – all of these require patience. And to cope, it would help a lot if we understood why patience is important.
