Praying for patience, verses praying for grace



 For years I prayed for patience, thinking it would better help in dealing with my stress. I always had alot of patience and it seemed the more I asked for patience, the more patience I needed, because all these stressful situations kept popping up in my life.

Then one day a dear friend of mine told me what a priest told her. He said "do not pray for patience for you will bring situations into your life that will need patients, in order to teach you that you already have the patience within you !!

Pray for grace instead, this will ask God, the universe to give you a period of rest, a time of  grace. You should notice within the days that follow, that things or areas in your life slow down, there is less chaos, and more peace within your environment and within yourself !!
