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.

Job

Father, remind me to be patient until my Lord’s return. Remind me of how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the ground and is patient for it until it receives the early and late rains. I also must be patient and strengthen my heart, for the Lord’s return is near. I will try not to grumble against others so that I may not be judged. For the judge stands before the gates! As an example of suffering and patience remind me of the prophets who spoke in the your name. I will think of how I regard as blessed those who have endured. I will remember Job’s endurance and will recognize your purpose, that you are full of compassion and mercy. May your name be blessed forevermore! Amen.

James 5

One of the hardest stories in the Bible for me to grasp, is the story of Job. I simply have to accept it in FAITH...for I know my weaknesses all too well. And I indeed would not be close to the tenacity Job displayed. So, yes..I pray for all the faith which humble Job, showed to all.
Amen

Yes, to have the patience & faith of Job is what we all should pray for.
