Heavenly Father, who we love, I lift Your name over all the earth. Father, lately I have found myself in a place that I do not want to be in. Anger, hatred and bitterness is causing me to lash out at the people around me and especially at my dear loved ones.
I am on edge at every point, the slightest gesture upsets me. I cannot continue on like this, Oh Father, please hear my cry.
Proverbs 17:27 – He who has knowledge spares his words, and a man of understanding is of a calm spirit.
Psalms 46:1 – God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Arguing with loved ones
I am losing the people that I love as these arguments arise. Help me to be at peace with everyone at home, at school and even on my job.
Grant me the patience to hold my tongue, give me tranquility in my soul but most of all give me strength to overcome this.
1 John 5:4 – For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith
Philippians 2:3 – Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.
Restoring inner peace
Anger, hatred and bitterness is not of You. You are the God of grace, God of peace, God of mercy but most importantly, You are the God of love. Restore Your peace within me.
Teach me to forgive and resolve any conflicts which may arise, immediately and peacefully. Help those around me to resolve their conflict situations as well and may we all execute Your never-failing, eternal love to one another. In Jesus mighty name, Amen!
Proverbs 8:6-9 – Listen, for I will speak of excellent things, and from the opening of my lips will come right things; for my mouth will speak truth; wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are with righteousness; nothing crooked or perverse is in them. They are all plain to him who understands, and right to those who find knowledge.
Leviticus 19:18 – You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.
