Spiritual Warfare: 'Pray You Will Exhibit God’s Love and Patience'

God's Power for Our Battles — Friday, October 15, 2021

And we are confident in the Lord that you are doing and will continue to do the things we commanded you. May the Lord lead your hearts into a full understanding and expression of the love of God and the patient endurance that comes from Christ.
— 2 Thessalonians 3:4-5 NLT

Today's Prayer

Lord, I confess my great impatience in times past. Many times, I have rushed ahead of You and Your plans for my life. Forgive me Lord, and help me to wait patiently on Your perfect timing and plan. Guide my heart and open my mind to understand the love of Christ fully that I need to copy. Help others to see that love in me and immediately be drawn to You. May my daily walk and talk be an ongoing expression of Your loving Spirit and patient endurance until Jesus returns. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
