Heavenly Father, thank You for Paul's simple, but important teaching on anger issues. I pray that I may be ready and willing to express anger against sin, and the things that grieve Your heart, in a godly and righteous way, that honours Your name, but I also pray that I would recognise any fleshly emotions, which motivate me toward unrighteous anger. Help me not to let the sun go down on my wrath and may I never give the enemy a foothold in my life, either directly - through fleshly anger, or indirectly - by allowing legitimate, righteous anger to deteriorate into a self-righteous attitude. Give me wisdom I pray, and a discerning heart to know when to be angry, without sinning so that the testimony I present may be for Your honour and glory, this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.

This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, as I read through the many instructions we receive on godly living and Christlike behaviour, I recognise that it is not a superficial change in my outward behaviour that is important, but an inner change in the deep recesses of my being... a change of character that reflects the life of Christ within. Forgive me for the times I have stolen from others, whether it be in goods; motive; reputation or in some other more subtle way. I pray that in thought, word and deed my actions and attitude would be pure and noble and would honour Your holy name. Bestow on me a generous spirit, so I may be cheerful in my giving and compassionate in my heart towards others - this I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father I pray that no unwholesome words would proceed from my mouth, but that the words of my lips and the meditation of my heart may be gracious and good. I pray that my speech would edify my brothers and sisters in Christ and honour Your name by speaking the truth in love. This I ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
