Prayer for Patience

October 11:

One way to encourage a military wife friend in your life is to pray for her to have an extra measure of patience. Patience is a tough commodity for your military wife friend, one that is needed often. We military families, who often seem to live by the saying "Hurry up and wait," tend to do a lot of waiting: We wait for news about our husband's promotions, his next school assignment, his next TDY (like a business trip), his next deployment, his next duty station (will we move? where? when?), and the list could go on and on.

Patience would be a welcome commodity in the life of any military wife.

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
Galatians 5:22-23, (NLT)
