And this is the confidence that we have before him: that whenever we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in regard to whatever we ask, then we know that we have the requests that we have asked from him.

Rain

Father, give me patience until Jesus returns. Teach me the way of the farmer, how he waits for the precious fruit of the ground and is patient for it until it receives the early and late rains. I also will be patient and strengthen my heart, for the Lord’s return is near. I will not grumble against another so that I may not be judged. As an example of suffering and patience, I will remember the prophets who spoke in the your name. I will regard as blessed those who have endured. I have heard of Job’s endurance and I have seen your purpose, that you are full of compassion and mercy. I will learn from Elijah who was a human being like me, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain and there was no rain on the land for three years and six months! Then he prayed again, and the sky gave rain and the land sprouted with a harvest. One day it will be heard on every street corner, in every synagogue, throughout the whole earth, "Look! He is returning with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all the tribes on the earth will mourn because of him. This will certainly come to pass! Amen.

An old friend of mine used to say,
"Patience and Faith in Jesus."
It's all you need.
