Prayer for patience at work (with Bible verses)

Last updated on June 27th, 2020 at 12:55 pm

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

Romans 12:12 

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.
