    Prayer for Dealing with Anger

    Gracious God,

    Sometimes my heart feels hot, my nerves feel edgy, my mind feels like lit dynamite. And sometimes, I just turn silent, go inward, cut myself off from anything and anyone that could ease the throbbing inside.

    Help me let go, not only of the anger, but of what made me angry in the first place. Let me breathe deep the wonder and peace of love. Amen.

    Pentecost Calendar

    If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are a lot better off than humans.

    Consumed by Anger

    I certainly do not want to suggest that we should never be angry, or that we should dismiss or condone actions that victimize us. I'm saying that we can easily become so attached to what has been done to us that we are completely unaware of what we are doing to ourselves.

    When we hold on to the deed that has been perpetrated against us or when we refuse to let go of our anger, we cannot heal.
