Don’t pray for Sabr:

PROOF: The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) overheard a man asking for patience, so The Prophet (may peace be upon him) said to him,
“You have asked Allah for a trial [to be patient in], rather ask for wellbeing.” [Tirmidhi 3527])

Here are three key advantages that you can bring to your life by just being patient:
