Ok, ever since I have followed Jesus I have prayed for patience. I figure that God will at some point require it from me. So I pray for patience regularly.
I had a debate with a friend of mine on this subject. He is convinced that if we ask for patience that God with require us to use it. So he refuses to pray for it. His thinking is that, if he doesn’t ask for it God won’t require it of him.
Of course I disagree!
In Galatians 5:22 says that patience is just one fruit of the Spirit. I know that God will give it if we ask. I also pray for the other fruits as well.
So I would like to ask you:
Do you or don’t you pray for patience?
Please let me know if you think I am crazy, lol!
