Father, You understand anger. I believe You want me to be angry about evil, injustice, and sin but you don’t want me to sin when I’m angry. Like You, may I let love be the force that guides me. Please forgive me for the times I’ve hurt someone through angry words or actions. By the power of Your Spirit, grant me the gift of patience that I might come to You in prayer when I’m angry asking for Your guidance that I might know how to address the issue without adding to the problem. Help me, Lord. In Jesus name, Amen.
Father, give me a gentle answer that comes from a tender heart when my temper rises and my mind fills with the unkind words I’d like to speak. Please help me remember to put the relationships ahead of being right. Help me respond gently and forgive quickly. Help me love like You. Amen
Father, I’m sorry. Make me quick to listen and slow to speak … I fail so often. Slow me down when anger rises. Please help me. Fill my heart and mind with Your truth. Please defeat the enemy’s efforts to distort Your Word and divide Your children. Teach us, Lord, by the power of Your Spirit. Keep me focused on You, the Way, the Truth, and the Life. You are my hope and my salvation. I surrender this day to You. With your help, I believe I can handle anger ways that honor You. In Jesus name. Amen.
