Did you know that in order to progress in life you have to integrate Pray and Patience? I come today with the realization that you need to instill both to yield success in anything that you do.
Some people, even myself, believe in Prayer. I grew up in a Christian household. Nightly, my family members and I would say our bedtime prayers and read scriptures from the Bible. As an adult, it was more or less my individual choice if I wanted to continue my routine of nightly prayers and scripture readings.
I will not lie, there were many times that I simply forgot and set aside that routine. I was too busy. I made excuses that I can pray on the go (which is true and just as effective). Most times I forgot to pray.
I realized that God wants his own time. God wants us, His children to spend quality time with Him. He doesn’t require much. But He wants us to have a healthy relationship with Him.
Throughout my life, I’ve experienced lots of hardships, setbacks, pain and suffering. With those hardships, setbacks and suffering, I grew inpatient. My patience ran out. In result, my attitude changed. I found myself always questioning “Where is God?” “Why is this happening to me”? “Am I not good enough?” “What did I so wrong to deserve all of this?”
I’ve learned that one can pray, pray and pray. But one must have the patience to go along with prayer. God does answers prayers, but in His timing. So there goes that formula, the practice of patience and fully relying on Him through prayer.
I don’t know what God has planned for me. As stated in my previous post Life isn’t moving? I’ve learned that each individuals life has its own path. You may desire to transform your life to be like another’s but it will never be identical. So why even think about it? You may wish or even pray to God about it, day and night. But it won’t happen. We are all unique beings with a unique purpose.
I’ve learned that with patience and pray, God will turn things around in my life. I first have to continue to make the time necessary to build on my personal and intimate relationship with God and His word. The big one…practice more of patience. This world strives on being so fast paced, leaving little to no exercise of patience. Today, I challenge myself and you to start practicing patience and indulge and learn of the power of prayer.
Do you agree or disagree with me? Do you feel that there is such a power in Prayer and Patience when combined? Have you ever felt like I did, growing inpatient with life? Please share your opinions, and experiences with me in the comment section.

Thank you so much for taking the time out to read what is on my mind. God Bless!
