Listen...


Father, I love Your patience toward me.
I love it when You describe Yourself as slow
to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
Oh, to be more like You!
Have mercy on my easily angered heart!
Forgive my many peeves and murmurings.
Grant that I would be saturated with grace,
and let me show it to others as
I desperately need it for myself.
Because of Jesus,
Amen.
(Life as a Vapor, John Piper)
