Prayer For Deliverance From Anger
Lord, You are a God of mercy and grace. I pray that You will forgive me for allowing anger to master me and turn my heart away from You. Deliver me from this sin, Lord Jesus, and help me learn how to control my words and actions when I am frustrated or angry at others. The Bible teaches us that anger is sinful because it often leads to other sins such as murder (see Matthew 5:21-22), but even more importantly because it comes from Satan himself (see Ephesians 4:26; Colossians 3:8). Thank You for giving us Your Holy Spirit who can help us overcome our sinful nature.”
Lord, I confess that I lack self-control.
- You are not alone. It’s easy to feel like you’re the only person who struggles with anger and frustration, but this is most likely not true. Jesus said that we will have trouble on the earth and that there will be people who “will lay hold of you and persecute [or pursue] you, delivering [you] up to the synagogues and prisons” (Matthew 10:17). The Bible also teaches us that “a man’s mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps” (Proverbs 16:9). So even if our minds plan out ways to handle situations in a certain way, ultimately it is God who decides how those situations will actually play out in our lives (Psalm 33:11; Proverbs 16:9).
- You cannot control other people’s actions. In fact, when someone does something wrong toward us or someone else it is more often than not because they are hurting themselves rather than us! For example: someone cuts us off on the road which causes us stress; then later we find out that person had just lost their job! Anger at another person does nothing but hurt ourselves by causing stress or worse yet sinning against them through words or actions taken out of anger fueled by prideful thoughts such as “How dare he cut me off?”
When I feel anger rising in my heart, I know it shouldn’t be there.
When you feel anger rising in your heart, it’s important to know that anger is a sin. Anger is a sign of weakness. Anger is not a good way to solve problems. It can lead to violence and depression. And it’s not the best tool for communication with others either; in fact, it often results in hurt feelings on both sides (and sometimes even broken bones).
If you find yourself getting angry too much, pray for God’s help with learning how to control your temper so that you don’t fall into sin when confronted by those who anger you or do things that offend you! God has promised us His guidance and comfort as we face these situations—if we only ask Him sincerely enough!
Forgive me for allowing this sin to master me.
If you are struggling with anger, don’t feel alone. Anger is a common struggle for many people, but it doesn’t have to be your defining feature. You can ask for help! Remember that the Lord is on our side. He will give us what we need in order to overcome this demon of anger that has gripped us so tightly.
Use these prayers daily and watch as they become second nature:
- Forgive me for allowing this sin to master me.
- God, help me control my temper and not lose it when I get frustrated or angry. Give me wisdom in dealing with difficult people who drive me crazy!
Thank You that only Jesus can deliver me from it.
Thank You that only Jesus can forgive me.
Thank You that only Jesus can help me overcome anger.
I repent of being so hard to get along with.
We are called by God to live lives of holiness, but when we sin, it can make us feel like we’re not good enough. When this happens, we need to repent. We can start by acknowledging the specific ways our anger is affecting our relationship with God and others. We may need to ask for forgiveness from those whom we have wronged or hurt. And finally, we must ask God for strength to change so that future angry episodes will be fewer in number and less severe when they occur.
Help me to control my words and actions, especially when I am frustrated or angry at others.
Another thing you can do to help manage your anger is to pray. When we genuinely ask God for help and guidance, He will respond in a way that honors Him and helps us become the person He wants us to be.
In this prayer, you will ask God for deliverance from anger. You will also ask Him for help in controlling your words and actions when frustrated with someone else.
You can use this as a template for making other requests of God; if there are other areas of your life where you feel like things aren’t going well, consider asking Him about them too!
Grant me a gentle and quiet spirit when others are disagreeable.
- Grant me a gentle and quiet spirit when others are disagreeable.
- Do not let it overcome me with anger; but if I have any right to be angry, let my strength be tempered by meekness and patience.
- Be patient with those who oppose you and forgive them. Do not be quick to condemn them or hold their sins against them.
Help me remember that You have called me to love others as You have loved them.
- Love is patient and kind.
- Love does not envy or boast.
- Love is not arrogant or rude.
- It does not insist on its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not irritable and keeps no record of being wronged; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoices with truth.
- Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
May Your love flow through me to help others see Your love for them, too.
- May Your love flow through me to help others see Your love for them, too.
- It is a powerful force that can change lives and bring about healing in any situation.
- Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy or boast, it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things and hopes all things (I Corinthians 13:4-7).
In conclusion, there are many ways to help you deal with anger in your life. You can pray or meditate on scripture that will remind you of God’s love for you and others, like “forgive as the Lord forgave you” (Colossians 3:13). You can also try journaling about how your anger affects your relationships with others who are important to me and how they affect my health. Journaling is a great way to get things out of your head!
