Proverbs 16:32

Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city. - Proverbs 16:32

Dear heavenly Father, 

It's easy to pride oneself in a competitive spirit, but you point out that the better person is one who learns to wait with grace and peace. I want to wait for you to bring blessings and solutions to my life without tapping my foot.  Give me the fruit of the Spirit called patience. Help me to bring calmness to others in how I endure delay and slow moving situations. 


Patient is a gift from God. Sit quietly and beg for it.
