Prayer for Ephesians 4:26

“Be angry and do not sin. Don't let the sun go down on your anger,”

Praying through Ephesians 4:26

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. May I also recognise any fleshly emotions which motivate me toward unrighteous anger. 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.
