Prayer

Temper

Do not lose your temper – it only leads to harm (Psalm 37:8; NLT).

People with understanding control their anger; a hot temper shows great foolishness (Proverbs 14:29; NLT).

Control your temper, for anger labels you a fool (Ecclesiastes 7:9; NLT).


Lord,
Losing my temper
Is the result
Of not realising
How angry I’m getting,
Until it’s far too late –
And I cause harm.

Please help me
To be much more self-aware,
So I can act quickly
To resolve each situation
Whilst my anger
Is still controllable,
Long before it explodes –
And I cause harm.
