Jehovah Shalom, Lord my God, You are the love of my life. You are amazing, magnificent, powerful and mighty. But Lord, I am struggling to control my emotions. I bow down before You, Oh Lord, broken, shattered and in pieces.
At this point, I feel so lost and helpless. As my heart cries out to You today, I humbly request that You heal the brokenness within me.

Help Controlling My Emotions
Lord, my emotions have a major part to play in displaying my actions. I ask today that You help me to control them as they arise.

Prayer for Emotional Stability and Peace
Oh Lord, I pray for Your peace, the peace that surpasses all understanding, to guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus. Amid emotional turbulence, I desire Your calming peace to wash over me, steadying my heart, and bringing clarity to my mind. When my emotions threaten to overwhelm me, I pray that Your peace would prevail, helping me to remain balanced and composed.
In moments of worry and anxiety, when the cares of my heart are many, Your word assures me that Your consolations can bring joy to my soul. I cling to this promise, Abba Father. May Your comfort and encouragement fill my heart, displacing any negative emotions, and instead instilling in me a spirit of joy, contentment, and emotional stability.

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.

Allow I to follow the example Jesus Christ has set before me. And, as I follow in his footsteps, I would not allow my emotions to get the better of me, in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen and Amen!
