Prayer: Controlling my Emotions
Prayer for Controlling my Emotions
Jehovah Shalom, Lord my God, You are the love of my life. You are amazing, magnificent, powerful and mighty.
We bow down before You, Oh Lord, broken, shattered and in pieces. At this point, we feel so lost and helpless. As our hearts cry out to You today, we humbly request that You heal the brokenness within us.

Help control Emotions
Lord, our emotions have a major part to play in displaying our actions. We ask today that You help us to control them as they arise. Anger, hate, jealousy, malice and pride will be replaced by Your warm and comforting love, peace, tranquility and compassion, as we step out today to execute acts of kindness towards one another.

Father, we know that actions speak louder than words which are controlled by emotions, so today we choose to have emotions that will bring only glory and honor to Your great name.
Allow us to follow the example Jesus Christ has set before us and, as we follow in his footsteps, we would not allow our emotions to get the better of us, in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen and Amen!
