Meditation Monday: Anger

“Control your temper, for anger labels you a fool.”‭‭

Ecclesiastes‬ ‭7:9‬ ‭NLT

Father, you are the true example of peace, patience and tranquility. Your word provides us with details on how we can live a peaceful life, yet – we don’t follow it. Forgive me for letting my own ways take over which leads to worry, stress and even anger. Forgive me when I lose my patience or lash out at others; I know I am only hurting myself when I do so and I’m not living in a way that pleases you. 

Thank you for being a God of understanding, one who is loving and forgiving. Please give me your peace and patience especially when I have none of my own. Help me to be a godly example, whether it’s towards total strangers or those that I love. I know there will be many times when I may be frustrated, tired, annoyed or overwhelmed, those are the times when I need your strength most. Please don’t allow anger to overcome me but instead fill me with your gentle spirit.

In Jesus’ name I pray -Amen.

Maybe you don’t know God very well or are not sure how to pray to Him, hopefully this will help guide you. I pray this speaks to someone out there. Thanks for stopping by and God Bless.)

*Sure enough, after I wrote this prayer my faith was tested and I was convicted. I lost my patience and my temper but immediately brought it the Lord. Normally what would have turned into bitterness and days of anger, instead fizzled away shortly after. I was also able to let go of my pride and apologize for my behavior. Proof that the Lord can give you the strength and humility that you need!

    Thank you so much for this. I need this right now. I’m in the process of having to find a new place to live and it’s so frustrating. I keep running into block walls. However, I did find a perfect home that I will hear about tomorrow. I have not fully given it to God; I find myself trying to do it my way. I did ask for His help to give me peace and guide me. He has answered me. I know it’s not up to me. It’s up to Him. So I need to let go And let God.

      Amen, sometimes it takes small steps to walk into the arms of God but when you do, you will feel His presence like never before! I will pray for your new home and ask God to give you peace and patience while you wait, and I would ask the readers in the WOW community to do the same. Please keep us posted, I know the perfect home is waiting for you. God Bless.
