Prayer for Ephesians 4:26 ►
“Be angry and do not sin. Don't let the sun go down on your anger,”
Loving Father and heavenly Lord I know that prayer is simply the breath of helplessness being nourished on the bosom of the Father. And Lord I come to You lifting up the many men and women that have such a struggle with the bitterness and anger that lurks deep within their soul – and who are helpless to deal with this disease without You Lord.
Father, You alone are the one that can address their need and sever the root of their anger – for it is only as one abides in Christ that the fruit of His Holy Spirit can grow and displace the ugliness of anger and bitterness within.
Bring those that do not know the Lord Jesus as saviour into a saving faith in Him so that they can know that their sins are forgiven forever and that You paid the price of all - and for those that know You as Saviour I pray that they come to understand that it is only as we yield to Your Spirit and admit our inabilities to deal with the fruit of evil in our heart that You will are able to guide us into the paths of righteousness, unforgiveness and love.
Category: Prayers for Anger
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.
