Sunday Prayer: Patience

Dear Lord,

Why can’t patience be like a bank account–with no fees?

I mean seriously, we can check to see how much patience we have in the bank, and our families will know how much to withdraw.

When we are running low, all of our loved ones will receive a notification (other than our personal warning: “I’m losing my patience”).

For women, we can have an automatic deposit during the week of–or a few days before–Shark Week, so we’ll have it when we need it the most.

I think it would be a great idea Lord–of course if you want to implement it, you would. I was only trying to give a suggestion.

If you decide not to go through with it, then can you grant me the strength to get through the times when my patience is running low, and the wisdom to keep some in reserve when it’s high.

Aside from sanity, no one really understands how patience is really valuable–almost as valuable as me time.

Thank you for listening.

It’s too bad you couldn’t patent that idea, because it’s perfect! I too have had almost no patience the last few days. It feels like I have no fuse left, not even a short one. I have so much now because I’ve had some me time…. I wish I could make a deposit and give you some of mine:)


LOL, Gosh how many times have i prayed the same. Love your idea of a bank account


When I saw your post I laugh because I was and still plan to post on patience. Good to know I’m not the only person having a rough time with it. God Bless.. 🙂

Truthful Mommy

Great post. Maybe we should have a built in mood ring on our forehead or our eyes could change colors so that our family knew what they were dealing with. How I love that you used the term shark week! I love it! You rock! You are brilliant with this idea.
