Prayer for Ephesians 4:26

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