Warrior Prayers Day 19-Anger

09/25/2011

This is a hard one!  It seems so many men today are driven by anger.  They don’t know how to control the hurt they have and it comes out in an unhealthy way, hurting themselves and those around them.

“So much of the Christian life is a choice. Every day (multiple times a day) we’re presented with a choice to choose God or choose ourselves. Anger is a perfect example.
You can just feel it coming, can’t you? Anger is an almost total body experience. Muscles get tight. Temples throb. Jaw clenches. Explosion feels imminent … wooing us into believing we have no choice but to react.
But it’s not true. We almost always have a choice when it comes to anger. We can choose to embrace it and sin. Or choose to put it away, and instead choose kindness, self-control, compassion, and love.

“Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.” ~Ephesians 4:31

Mommy Prayer day 19:  “Man! It seems like every single thing we’ve prayed for so far starts with what’s in our own hearts! I’m afraid anger is no different. Today,  I pray that when you’re tempted to sin in anger, the Lord will show you the way out (He promises He will) and you will choose grace and love instead.”
