A Collect for Patience in Our Work on Earth
Holy Lord, who learned patience when you took on our nature, we await with anticipation the reward that we are to receive, but give us patience to work in your fields for now, knowing that you will give us our wages at the appropriate time, through you who ascended to the Father and Holy Spirit and still pray for us. Amen.
