There are so many definitions for the word patience. One synonym, longsuffering, comes to mind and describes it very well. We suffer in silence without retaliating, showing our feelings, getting riled up or angry. If you ask God for patience, He’ll give you the opportunity to practice it, so be careful what you ask! You just might get more than you bargained for. I’m not saying not to pray for patience; just be prepared to practice it.
