PRAYER TO OVERCOME ANGER AND RESENTMENT
Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
Every day of our existence on earth we are going to encounter or be in a position where our emotional reaction will be tested. It may be a friend hurting us by mistake, it may be a family member saying something that may upset us. Maybe not getting enough credit that you deserve for work done. How well do you react when these offences kick in? You know, it is natural to get angry, it is a normal trait “every human possesses, but your ability to manage your anger is what matters most.
If you are unable to manage your anger it may lead to strife, fights or even chaos. That is why we need the Holy Spirit to help us to be meek. The bible says in Ephesians 4:26-27 that it is okay to be angry but we shouldn’t give an edge to the devil when we do get angry.
It is important that we know that holding on to anger is sin, which is why we should at often times forgive people and let go. Trust me, if you are holding on to anger the weight is always on you but when you let go, you feel this weight off your shoulder.
To conquer anger issues you have to rely solely on God to build better character traits in you and help you develop and become more of a listening person than a talking person.
Don’t forget we are also looking at resentment. These two goes together, resentment may be deep hatred you have for someone. If not controlled, it can cause you to miss blessings assigned to you. It deprived Moses from entering the promised land, because he got angry and he disobeyed God.
