Notes on Patience – Praying for Others

Patience is something that is tested in my life every day, as I am sure it is for most of us. I thought that perhaps it would be a good idea for me to begin a study that was a bit more in depth so that I could know how to gain a self-mastery that I do not have right now. I hope that my readers will enjoy following this series of posts on patience and that it may help someone else out there, as much as it has helped me. To see more posts, check out Notes on Patience

But behold I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them who despitefully use you and persecute you; (3 Nephi 12:44, see also Matthew 5:44)

  • To be a patient person, I should pray for those who offend, hate, or persecute me. I believe in the power of prayer. Not only does it bless that person, but it softens the heart of the one who prays. You cannot respond in anger, when you sincerely pray for another who has wronged you. I think that when I choose to do this in the heat of the moment, I find that the spirit shows me where I have taken offense and there may have been none intended, or how it is that I can be the bigger person and forgive before I let things get out of hand.

    About My Scripture Study Buddy

    I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love the scriptures, but I am not a scriptorian. I've been told that I'm too "deep" for some, but if you are willing, I'd love to have others join me in my quest for a greater understanding of the gospel. Please feel free to leave me comments and hopefully we can help each other to learn.
