The Patience Of Job – Today’s
Dear Heavenly Father,
Your Word teaches us to be patient. James Chapter Five tells us to take an example from the prophets who showed great patience in the face of suffering.
We see Job who endured a time of severe tribulation. And even through the most difficult time in his life, Job said, “But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” (Job 23:10)
Lord, we ask that by Your grace You give us the faith and the patience to wait on You regardless of how long we must wait.
We see Elijah who fervently prayed for rain, but didn’t see any rain for three and a half years. Still, he was faithful and patiently waited on You.
If we’re afflicted and if we’re sick, may we be quick to bring it to prayer, with the faith and patience of Job who trusted in Your sovereign power, and in Your timing.
And help us to remember the ones who have gone astray, Lord. Instead of giving up on them, may we fervently pray that they would return to the faith they once had.
In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

Brothers and sisters, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered.
