Prayer to Get Through Rough Patch

Lord, please help me remain faithful and patient during some hardships. I was laid off from my job in January due to budget cuts. I am unemployed and uninsured after 26 years in my profession. The guy I have been dating for 2 years just found out he has cancer and his business is not working out well. Then he “dumped” me over the phone on Monday.

I have not handled it well or respected his wishes to be “left alone”. I would like to be patient with him. I want to be there as he goes through surgery, etc. Please help me to be more patient and kind and please speak to his heart and let him forgive me and let me back in. I love you and everything you have ever done for me and for the people and experiences you have brought to my life.
