Dear Jesus, you know intimately the challenges
that I face in showing patience toward the people
you have put in my life.
I have failed so often to bear with others in love.
Forgive me. Thank you, dear Savior, for paying
in full the price for these failures.
Thank you for your life of perfect patience, lived in my place.

Give me strength today to reflect your patience to others. Amen.

—Mollie Schairer
