When I am Angry...

I am angry, God.
In these moments help my words and actions
not wound myself or others.
Grant me the grace of listening before speaking,
of pausing before yelling.
Give me the patience to wait these feelings out.

Then, let me praise you.

This is a good one. I need to have this taped to my wrist, as the last thing I want or think to do when I'm angry is pray! That takes some self-control and discipline. Thanks for sharing!

I should tape this to my wrist too. Sadly, I only wrote it after failing miserably last time I was angry. Hopefully it'll help for the next time! :)
