Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
With all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
1 Corinthians 13:4
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant.
But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.
Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.
Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!
Better is the end of a thing than its beginning, and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness…
1 Thessalonians 5:14
And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.
And endurance produces character, and character produces hope.
For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised.
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.
I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry.
