I am going through a very complicated relationship and I want to have the energy and strength to get out or understand how to handle it. I want what is best for us. I know we make each other happy at times but at other times it’s really hard on us both. I want to have a successful work work and pray that you soften his heart and pride to be open and honest with me.
I should not have said some mean things to him and truly sorry from the bottom of my heart but this relationship has consumed me for over a year and I am exhausted. I love him and always will. Please give us both patience and understanding where we don’t end up hurting one another.
Return to The Serenity Prayer
Altruis the Sufferer in western Nagrand wants you to take the Master Planner’s Blueprints to Sal’salabim in Shattrath City and convince him to help you.
Take the blueprints and travel to Shattrath City in the Terokkar Forest. Once at Shattrath, go to the Lower City and look for a mo’arg by the name Sal’salabim. He’ll probably be at the bar, drinking away his sorrows.
By the way, you may need to convince him to lend his assistance. Try to approach him with patience and understanding. If that does not work, use your fists.
Patience is hard.
In our fast-food, drive-thru, one-day-Amazon-delivery world, it’s a lost art. A muscle we don’t like to exercise often. Yet as Christians, we’re called upon to use that muscle. God desires for us to wait steadfastly upon Him and be longsuffering with each other. “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience” (Colossians 3:12).
A few years ago, I broke my ankle. After weeks of healing from surgery, it finally got cleared to bear weight. That first second my foot hit the floor, fire burned up my calf and my ankle wobbled. It took weeks of physical therapy and painful repetition to get back into walking shape. But the more I practiced, the easier it got. Building patience is kind of like that.
Patience is something God understands.
After all, He deals with us 24/7. I can only imagine how much I test Him weekly, daily, even hourly—yet He never wobbles under the weight. He has an endless supply of patience, and He’s willing to share.
When you find yourself struggling, here are 10 prayers for patience.
