Journey Through Lent, Day 31

Have you ever heard the saying, “patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting?”

Well, if we’re honest, sometimes what we really think about patience is, “I got no patience and I hate waiting.”

It’s so easy to have a crummy attitude when you’re waiting for something you want. It can be especially hard when waiting on God (because you may never know when he is gonna move).

This Lent, as you hear a lot about waiting, but also are tired of waiting, pray this Scripture and prayer as a reminder to be patient, trust God, and maybe even to help your attitude about waiting. Check it out!

A Full Prayer to Wait with Patience

Jesus, we are a waiting people who eagerly anticipate your return. Sit with me now as I practice patience and await ___________. Bring peace to my restlessness, transform doubt to trust, and help me hear from you in this in-between. And when my waiting ends, fill me with satisfaction and point me toward the day when my faith will be shown true and you will make all things right. Amen.

Psalm 27:13-14: “I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”
