The power to endure and be patient.
Colossians 1:11 NLT: We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy,
My dear friend in Christ, are you aware that endurance and patience are virtues from the Lord? It is not what you can do with your own strength. You need the power of God to strengthen your so that you can be patient and also endure.
It will be impossible to go through life without these virtues. Looking at the things happening in our world, we see lots of need for patience and endurance. Jesus who for the joy set before Him, endured the cross. He was crowned with Glory afterwards.
Our world does not understand the language of patience. Everyone wants it quick. Even believers find it difficult to be patient and endure His discipline. Therefore, there is need for prayers that God will infuse strength for patience and endurance. Shalom.
Declare to yourself loud: I am filled with the joy of the Lord.
- Almighty God, fill me your strength to be patient and endure when the need arises, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
- Please add your personal intentions.
