We’ve all been treated unjustly by our friends or family members.
And, it is natural that our most likely impulse is to get angry.
It could be gossip insult or even physical harm.
But, when you are angry, it is important you control your temper.
That’s because it can quickly turn to rage and lead you to make regrettable actions.
On the flip side, what of those who are furious with us?
There are lots of wicked hateful people who will despise you for no reason.
And their aim is to hurt you at any chance they get.
There is nothing wrong with saying a prayer for someone trying to hurt you.
Or a friend or family member who has anger issues.
God is able to deliver us and our loved ones from the chains of resentment.
I have put together this short prayer to control anger.
May God, in His infinite mercies, grant you your heart desires and return peace to your mind.
