The workplace can get annoying sometimes.
And sadly, you simply can’t quit your job.
Even worse, no one cares about how you feel.
When you face difficult challenges at your workplace, you can overcome them through prayers.
Just last week, a younger colleague felt so frustrated with the way he was treated at the hospital.
One of the senior doctors here had insulted him during a surgical procedure.
He felt demoralized and unable to continue with his job.
But that’s where patience comes in.
Patience is the ability to endure even in the face of provocation.
And it is an essential tool for every Christian.
The scripture says,
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer
In other words, in difficult times, when you are losing control of yourself, you must pray.
I have compiled four prayers for patience at work.
Prayer Bible verses for patience at work
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight
1 Peter 5:7
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
The end of a matter is better than its beginning,
and patience is better than pride.
