Pray to God for patience. Patience is a flower of God’s planting. Pray that it may grow in your heart, and send forth its sweet perfume. Prayer is a holy charm, to charm down the evil spirit. Prayer composes the heart and puts it in tune, when impatience has broken the strings and put everything into confusion. Oh, go to God. Prayer delights God’s ear; it melts his heart; it opens his hand. God cannot deny a praying soul. Seek him with importunity and either he will remove the affliction or, which is better, he will remove your impatience.

Thank you for posting this.

I often forget to remember to pray for patience and only realize it when I am being entirely too impatient and watching the fruits that are borne by my failing to call on the strength and infinite patience of the Lord.

Thank you again.
