The Patience Prayer

Because I have none…

A PRAYER FOR PATIENCE

Blessed Mary, Mother of Consolation, pray with me for the virtue of patience. There are so many times when my lack of patience keeps me from becoming the kind of person God wants me to be.

Guide my thoughts to you and the example we have in your own life. Help me to become patient, as you were patient. Through your guidance, may I become more accepting of others around me. Assist me to welcome difficult times with a patient heart.

May I be patient, Mary, as was your beloved husband, Joseph. His quiet acceptance of the will of Our Loving Father should be an example for me always. His patience was most wonderful in the eyes of God.

Pray for me, dear Mother of God, that I will allow the Father to come into my heart and help me grow in patience.

Amen.

    Great prayer – not nearly as scary to ask for patience as to pray the litany for humility!

    The good Friars of St. Francis run an old and beautiful church of the Assumption here in Syracuse, NY – they recently had the dome over the transept cleaned and renovated. The altar is beautiful – I’ll have to post some images.

  7. What a lovely prayer, Deb. Do I ever need to say it.
