Stop asking for sabr. Ask for ease. (Evidence: The Prophet (pbuh) overheard a man asking for patience, so The Prophet (pbuh) said to him, “You have asked Allah for a trial [to be patient in], rather ask for wellbeing.” [Tirmidhi 3527])

Note, this is not to say that it is forbidden to ask for patience. The intent here is to illustrate that God does not want to give us difficulty, and He is pleased when we ask him for ease and wellbeing.
