Loving Father and heavenly Lord, I know that prayer is simply the breath of helplessness being nourished on the bosom of the Father. And so 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 guide us into the paths of righteousness, unforgiveness and love.
Loving Lord, I place that anger and bitterness that I too often harbour in my heart at Your feet and pray that in Your grace, You will expose all that is causing the bitter poison that is lodged within my heart to surface so often, and set me free from it, I pray.
Lord, I confess all my anger and bitterness, and know that when I allow this to surface in my heart it breaks the fellowship we have together. I know that when I confess my anger, You are faithful and just to forgive the outbursts of anger in my heart and to cleanse me of all unrighteousness, for which I praise Your name. But Lord, I desire that I am set free from this pollution within my heart, so that the root of anger shrivels within. I ask You to examine me and root out all that is not pleasing in Your sight
Thank You, in Jesus' name,
Loving Lord, I confess that there is much bitterness and anger in my heart, and I come to You knowing that there is nothing that I can do to rid myself of this suffocating handicap in my life.
Search me within Lord, and expose all that is not pleasing in Your sight. Help me to find a closure to the deep rooted anger which seems to be rooted in a deep-seated unforgiveness.
Forgive me Lord, for the pain I have caused, for I know my anger has hurt so many people. Yet I realise that my sin of anger is directed against You and it is against You alone that I have sinned in this way.
Also, I pray that You will create in me a forgiving heart towards all those that have hurt me so deeply. And knowing that the Lord Jesus forgave me so many sins, I confess that I too should forgive others, just as God for Christ’s sake forgave me all my sin.
Thank You that in You I have victory against all my sin, including my anger – for in Christ the power of sin has been broken in my life because I trust in His name.
Thank You Lord. I trust You to take away all the anger within me and fill me with Your perfect peace, for You have promised to keep all in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You.
Heavenly Father, I ask You to examine my heart, for there is a well of anger and resentment deep within my soul and I keep drawing on that bitter water, rather than drinking daily of the waters of life that flow into a heart that is looking to Jesus.
Examine my heart Lord, and root out all the bitterness and resentment that is so deeply rooted within me. Search the inner depth of my soul and expose all my suppressed hurt and resentment, for it is only in You that I can be set free of the pain deep within.
Thank You, Father, that You forgave all my sins at the cross of Calvary and I believe that You paid the full price all my sins, including all the anger in my heart – anger that still surfaces too frequently from time to time. I pray that in Your grace, You will free me from all traces of anger and create in me a heart of love and forgiveness, so that I may grow more and become more like Jesus,
Dear Lord, You know how I struggle with anger in my heart and how I still have hatred toward those that have hurt and abused me in so many ways. Lord, my anger is so deep within my soul that I sometimes feel my head is going to burst.
I know, Lord, that there is no way that I can control my own anger for I have tried and failed so many times. I can manage for a while and then I feel as if I am about to explode from within. I know I need to deal with the very root of my anger. Help me Lord.
Lord, I know that the only way to deal with my anger is to keep my heart and my thoughts focused on You, Who took the punishment for all my sin, all my anger, all my hatred.
I know that forgiveness, true genuine forgiveness toward those that have hurt me so badly is the way to deal with the root of the problem. Help me to say as You did on the cross, "Father forgive them," and to keep my heart looking to You.
I confess my anger Lord and ask for Your forgiveness. Create in me a clean heart, forgiving heart, I pray,
