A Prayer to Persevere

Quitting is a tempting option when life is hard; giving up is easy. And yet Scripture tells us that if we will not grow weary in well doing, we will in fact reap at the appointed time.
And that’s the rub. The appointed time is not always our idea of the right time (anyone else feel the same way?). Waiting is hard. Waiting with a good attitude, with our eyes focused on Jesus? Let’s just say that for me, some days are better than others. And yet this verse is a promise our hearts desperately need.

And so we will pray, asking the Lord to give us great grace so we can keep on doing the right thing without growing weary. Whatever you’re enduring? Take heart. God is always with us, He is sovereign, and He is faithfully at work behind the scenes.

This is our hope.


Lord, I choose to be a woman who perseveres, not a woman who gives up. I will not lose heart or grow weary in well-doing. Help me to keep my focus on You, Lord. Help me to continue to trust You and believe You. Send glimmers of hope to my heart, divine assurances that You are at work behind the scenes. By Your grace I am determined to persevere and will keep standing. Thank you that as I do this, I will reap a good harvest at the appointed time. In the strong name of Jesus, Amen.
