31 DAYS OF PRAYER
Day 1 – Pray For Patience
This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.” – Habakkuk 2:3 (NLT)
Praying for patience is scary.
By definition, patience assumes a wait. So by asking God for patience we’re surrendering to the wait.
I don’t like waiting. I want what I want- right now!
But Habakkuk 2:3 tells us that God’s vision for our life will happen on His timetable.
God is not running late. Everything is going according to (His) schedule.
He knows it may feel slow to us, but He promises He’s not delayed.
He asks us to wait patiently. To trust that He what He has planned for us will actually happen.
As you pray today, ask God to help you wait patiently for His plan to be fulfilled.
Prayer: Father Lord, it is not easy to pray for patience…but we surrender all our anxiety before You, and pray for the peace that passeth all understanding. Even though we have our own desires and wishes, give us the grace to trust fully in Your plan for us. Bless us with that peace that passeth all understanding. In JESUS’ name we pray! AMEN!
(Please let’s add our own prayers to the thread. As we raise our voices in one, may the GOOD LORD hear our prayers, AMEN!
