Dear Lord I know that I have anger issues. Too many times I have lashed out at people and said hurtful words. Forgive me for all the times I have hurt others through my anger. My anger has been controlling me not me controlling it. First I ask that you would come in and heal those areas of my heart where I have been wounded – these hurts have caused me to react out of my pain instead out of love. This anger will no longer have control over me – for God has given me power over all things.
Your Word tells us to be “Quick to hear, slow to speak…… slow….. to…..anger.” Each time I am angry I will choose to take a deep breath and rein in my anger. I will say this bible verse to calm my emotions. Satan you can no longer have control over my emotions. Holy Spirit come and fill all the dark places of my mind and heart. Give me greater self-control. Help me to recognize when I am about to lose control. Help me to be quick to repent and to start all over again. In Jesus name I pray. amen
