Prayer For Controlling Your Anger And Temper

PATREON SUPPORTERS Log-in here to remove ads

Omnipotent Everlasting Father, in every situation of my life, I give You full control. Your Word constantly reminds me that you care for me. My spirit is broken. I’m filled with anger. Heal me Lord. I know that through the workings of the Holy Spirit, it all works together for my good.

My heart is broken. My spirit is weak. But You, my God, make me whole. Though I may experience pain, it just serves to make me stronger.

Romans 12:21 – Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Ephesians 4:26, 29, 31 – “Be angry, and do not sin”: do not let the sun go down on your wrath. Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.

Guidance for Self-Reflection and Growth

Teach me, Lord, to pause and reflect before I act or speak in anger. Grant me the insight to understand the root of my frustrations and the courage to address them constructively. May Your Holy Spirit guide me in self-reflection, leading to personal growth and greater emotional maturity.

Cultivate in me a heart of patience, capable of enduring provocations without losing peace. Strengthen my resolve to practice self-control, reminding me that every test of temper is an opportunity to grow in Your grace and to witness to Your transformative power.

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Psalm 141:3 Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.

Focus On The Positives

You are the Alpha and the Omega, the Author and finisher of my faith. Help me to focus on the blessings and positives in my life today.

As you examine my heart, Lord, search and reveal anything that is not of You that I may be set free.

As circumstances attempt to overwhelm me, Lord fill me with Peace and Clarity. Help me to control my anger and rage, Oh Loving Father.

Help me not to be consumed in it. I pray that sin would not emerge as the anger infests my mind.

Heavenly Father, there are times my anger gets the better of me. Lord, I know this is not of you. And so, I pray that you grant me the peace of mind that I will not allow others to get me angry.

Fill me with your Holy Spirit that I will resist and overcome the attempts of the enemy to cause me to sin.

James 1:19-20 – So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

Colossians 3:8 – But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.

Prayer For Peace and Self-Control in Daily Life

Infuse my daily walk with Your peace, Lord. In interactions both significant and mundane, let Your spirit of serenity and self-control be evident in me.

When faced with the pressures and stresses of life, remind me to cast my cares upon You, for You care for me deeply and are the source of my strength and peace.

May my life reflect not the impulsiveness of human anger but the steadfastness of divine love. Let me be a beacon of Your tranquility in a world often governed by tempers and turmoil.

Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Heal My Heart, Remove All Anger

I also pray for those struggling with anger, wrath and temper control as well. Calm their minds, bodies and souls.

May the Holy Spirit consume and heal my heart, today, so that I may acquire that overflowing joy. In Jesus’ all-powerful name I pray, AMEN!

2 Timothy 2:24-26 – And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.

Psalm 37:8Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; do not fret – it only causes harm.
