We praise you for your goodness and mercy and thank you for the example of Patience in your life. We remember how you patiently waited to begin your ministry. Help us to be patient with one another. Remind us to patiently accept the things we cannot change while we continue to work on those that we can. May we learn, with your help, to keep trying until we succeed and to make the most of the time we spend waiting. Teach us how to wait patiently and not complain during delays. Guide us to patiently listen to others and not interrupt when they are speaking. Help us to act in all things in harmony with the will of the Father.
