Prayer to calm down
(a prayer to calm anger in the heart or mind)
My mind prowls around, looking for someone to blame, hunting for a way to release the anger I feel. I am trapped, enraged by these feelings.
Resentment weighs me down and revenge follows me. It overtakes my life.
Please come and bring freedom, I need you Almighty God. I lay these feelings at the foot of the cross.
I remind myself over and over that you took this pain and these raw wounds with your death on the cross, and overcame them all. Lord help my heart to understand your risen love, that I may breathe in your hope and find a new morning of peace and forgiveness.
