A Father’s Prayer For Patience

“Heavenly Father, You show us what it means to be patient by Your Son’s death on the cross. He willingly suffered a painful death in loving obedience to Your will. Help me grow in the virtue of patience by willingly accepting the small trials of family life with a cheerful heart. When someone becomes difficult to deal with, give me the grace to be charitable in my speech and actions and never lose my temper. Assist me in recognizing Your providential hand even in spilled food, crying children, and the accidents with toys. Aid me in seeing that these events can help me to purify my love for You and my neighbor. You have been patient with me and so have many other people who are part of my life. In Your Son’s name, Jesus, and in union with the Holy Spirit, I ask You, Heavenly father, to help me to be patient. Amen.”
