A prayer for patience and grace

God of infinite patience,

God of unquenchable grace,

help my impatience,

touch my ungraciousness,

When I become frustrated with,

or angered by,

or annoyed at,

another person,

remind me that person

is your beloved child,

made in your image.

Strengthen my patience;

renew my grace,

that I might find ways,

beyond what I perceive as my capacities,

to act in kindness and

to demonstrate love

that we might walk together humbly with you

and work for justice.

I pray in Jesus’ name.

Amen.
