Warrior Prayers -- Day 12

21 Days of Prayer for our Sons…

Today’s Prayer in on PATIENCE…

Today, we continue praying for each specific “fruit of the Spirit” mentioned in Galatians 5:22.

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, PATIENCE, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, against such there is no law.” – Galatians 5:22

Patience is one of those things that I’ve often heard (teasingly) that we should not pray for—because you never know what God might put in your path to teach you patience! It truly is one of those things that I struggle with because I always want things done on my timetable & that usually means “now!” J

However, when I stop and think that this is a “fruit” that God not only wants me to have but for me to also teach my children, it is very convicting! I really need to make a more intentional effort to be more patient with my children (and my husband). And I really need to work on teaching them to be patient as well.

Here’s Brooke’s question for today:

Do you think we’re teaching our sons that the “little things” are what matter most?

I’d love to hear your reply in the comments!

Today’s verses are:

James 5:10

Colossians 1:11

2 Corinthians 6:6

2 Timothy 4:2

Romans 2:4

Colossians 3:12

Ecclesiastes 7:8

Praying for a more PATIENT attitude,
