Anger has a price tag.

“Sensible people control their temper; they earn respect by overlooking wrongs.”
Proverbs 19:11

Prayer: God, grant me the wisdom and grace to overlook anything that you would overlook, and the courage and mercy to confront anything that you would confront - and the wisdom to know the difference. Amen.


Anger and insecurity go together.

“Do not worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks. And God’s peace, which is so great we cannot understand it, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Think about the things that are good and worthy of praise. Think about the things that are true and honorable and right and pure and beautiful and respected. Do what you learned and received from me, what I told you, and what you saw me do. And the God who gives peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:6-9

Prayer: Lord, help me guard my heart. I want to banish anger and welcome positive peace. I know you want to live in a place like that. Help me redecorate my heart in the ways that make you at home today. Help me shut off the slow leaks that put my heart’s home at risk. Amen.


Put out the angry fire.

“A hot-tempered person starts fights; a cool-tempered person stops them.” Proverbs 15:1
