Jehovah Shalom, Lord my God, You are the love of my life. You are amazing, magnificent, powerful and mighty. But Lord, we are struggling with our emotions.
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.
Proverbs 25:28 – A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.
Proverbs 16:32 – He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty. He who rules his spirit is greater than he who captures a city.
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.
Colossians 3:2 -Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.
Romans 8:6 – For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace.
Displaying self-control when tempted
Fill me with Your Holy Spirit, Lord. Allow me to display self-control when temptations draw near. Empower me to resist whatever temptations and tests come my way.
Make me pure, holy and true when Lucifer tries to intervene. Give me peace in my mind, body and soul so that I can remain focused on You and Your word daily. Let your Word be the bread that I crave and want as much as the air that I breathe.
Actions speak louder than words
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!
Romans 1:17 – For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “but the righteous man shall live by faith.”
