It is about learning to accept and have patience with not just those you love and those in your church family, but with everyone. God is the one that will always be there and always forgive. God wants us to ask for things that can't be purchased from a store. He wants us to ask for things that we can't buy or get ourselves. God wants us to pray to him for the things that we need. Whether that is patience, a sense of belonging, or love.
