Anger

“…and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us” (Matthew 6:12; NLT).

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone (Romans 12:18; NIV).


Father,
Help me when I am quick
To take offence;

When I am overwhelmed
By rage;

When I blame others,
Though I am the one at fault;

And when I lose control of my tongue,
Damaging others with my cruel words.

Help me to apologise
When I am wrong,

And to forgive,
When others make mistakes;

So that,
As far as it depends on me,
I can live at peace with you,
With other people,
And even with myself.

Through Jesus’ name,
Amen.
