Approach Problems with Prayer and Patience



Recently, when faced with

Troubles insurmountable

Temptations there were

To be hasty, rash,

Impatient and rude


God, however,

Beckoned me forward

With prayer and patience

And I knew it was right


Oh praise Him!

The next day with joy

Each problem found

An answer!


Now what can I say?

Though problems overwhelm,

Sorrows abound,

And solutions appear distant,

Approach each problem

With prayer and Patience

Expecting God to answer!



1 Peter 4:7

The end of all things is at hand; therefore, be of sound judgment and sober spirit for the purpose of prayer.


Philippians 4:6-7

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.


Hebrews 4:16

Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need.

  1. Patience and prayer routinely go together, like twins. Thanks for this reminder, Stephen.
