Patience: Reasons Why the Christian Should Pray for Patience

PRAYING FOR PATIENCE: Men say "No." The Bible says "Yes."

PRAYING FOR PATIENCE: Men say “No.” The Bible says “Yes.”

SHOULD CHRISTIANS PRAY FOR PATIENCE?

From the time this writer first became a Christian, he heard an odd bit of advice from other church-goers.

“Don’t pray for patience or the Good Lord will give it to you!”

This advice was echoed in a recent article.

The 8 most dangerous Christian prayers

The article was particularly unbiblical about patience. A few observations about this particularly noxious bit of antichrist propaganda.

Sometimes, this writer is amazed there are any true believers left in America.  Deception is everywhere–but most especially in the dung heap of the “Christian” Internet.  This piece purports to offer advice on how to pray.  Instead, what the reader will find is a collection of worldly error, hearsay, folk tales and church gossip masquerading as Christianity.  It is a horribly deceptive piece of work.

The entire article is an exercise in ear tickling. One could disagree with almost every point it makes on Biblical grounds.  The following is offered as an example.

This is the “advice” it offers for #2: Teach me patience.

If you pray for patience, get ready to be surrounded by the most annoying people you have ever met. Get ready for your car to break down when you are late for an appointment. Get ready your children to go bonkers. Get ready for prayers to not get answered. Get ready for setbacks, roadblocks, and pitfalls.

We’ll start off by asking “Where exactly in the Bible does it say that the believer’s prayers will not get answered if one is patient or asking for patience?”

Answer: it doesn’t.

In describing the works of a true apostle of Jesus (according to 2 Corinthians 12:12); Paul uses the descriptor of “utmost patience.’

The linked article promotes the fallacy popular in “Christian” circles that one should not pray for patience.  This is particularly grievous when one remembers that one of the fruits of the Spirit [Galatians 5:22-23] is longsuffering (patience). Paul advises Christians to “walk in a manner worthy” of their calling “with patience.”

Colossians 1:11 asks “Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

The true Christian is advised time and again to “be patient”–yet pretend Christians never tire of offering the devil’s advice “Don’t pray for patience!”

This is the world talking, not Jesus.

The world runs from persecution.  The Christian is supposed to rejoice in persecution for the name of Jesus.  The world wants a bed of roses, with lots of time for fun and enjoying the stuff of this world.  The true Christian is supposed to separate from this world. The true Christian prays for patience because the Bible tells us patience is one sign of a true Christian.  The world shies away from situations which require longsuffering.

The world’s advice? Don’t pray for patience.

The Christian is advised to “wait on the Lord.”

“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.”
Psalm 27:14

It’s a sign of apostasy when the Church advises those sit in the pews to not pray for one of the gifts of the Spirit.

Why do so many who claim to be Christians take the world’s advice–or the advice of apostate hirelings and wolves–over the Bible’s?

Apostasy looks a lot like true Christianity.

The Christian better pray for patience–as the Bible suggests–as the  the true believer will certainly have need of it. Especially in the times in which we now live.

Christians should particularly pray for patience to endure such deceptive, unChristian advice as “Don’t pray for patience!”

“Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee.”
Proverbs 20:22

    P.S. I think it is probably wise to stay out of Christian book stores and don’t watch Christian t.v. They are businesses and lucrative ones at that There is a whole system out there that is dangerous and some people don’t know the real from the false I only have one friend that I can even ask to pray for me and things and I’m not even sure about him I don’t get what’s going on but I have got to get completely out of it and stay out.

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment.

      Yes.

      You are completely right: most are not what they seem. Bookstores and other businesses bearing the label “Christian” are not what they promise.

      Be careful out there!

        JJJ really Christian t.v. is so bizarre and bad. I’m just worried about my attitude. I’ve got to take my eyes off the garbage and keep it on Christ. It’s to be expected. I think it is because some Christians get so angry if you see something a little different than they do. They are so sweet until that happens. I know you do not believe the angel mixing with women to make giants, so I would never bring it up with you as I would not want you to discount me because I like your writings. If you are grounded, then the garbage slung around does not throw you. It’s still garbage and from the enemy but you stand against it. I just don’t want to offend those who are weak by trashing a Christian t.v. show they think is Christian. BUT, they still need to be told the truth, gently. Entreated as a weaker brother or sister.

    P.P.S. I apologize for last comment. My attitude is wrong. Not all Christian t.v. is questionable. And, I just got some really nice bible dictionaries from a bible book store going out of business. While there is a lot of bad out there (deception), we have to be careful not to lose our peace and turn hateful. We want to draw people to Christ, not turn them away with our harsh attitudes. More importantly, we do not want to reflect the world, especially in our attitude. Thanks AJC

    • AJC,

      I disagree about Christian TV. I haven’t seen any that wasn’t deceptive. It’s all deceptive.

      There IS a lot of deception. Being alert is in no way similar to being “hateful”–although we are commanded to hate sin, evil and wickedness.

      People are not turned away by “harsh attitudes.” This is an argument of the world which invites compromise.

      People are not drawn by us to Christ, they are drawn by the Holy Spirit.

      If someone makes the excuse: “Oh, I think you are too harsh.” they are not drawn by the Spirit.

      Those drawn by the Spirit will be dwelling on any number of more important points than whether someone appears “too harsh.”

      It’s a narrow path. Those who attempt to make it into a nice broad way are headed to destruction.

      Thanks once more for taking the time to leave a comment.
