To Be Slow To Anger

To Be Slow To Anger – Today’s
Marriage Prayer

Dear Heavenly Father,

Help us to be slow to anger — to let go of our frustrations. We ask that You show us how to quietly calm ourselves down when we’re upset. Help us to reason and wisely discern situations, instead of acting on impulse, emotion, and pride.

Once we embrace anger, it’s hard to let go, but we know that we should, Lord. Your word tells us, “He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.” (Proverbs 16:32)

Give us the strength to release our frustration into Your hands. Restore us quickly to a sense of harmony and peace.

May Your Holy Spirit reign in our bodies. May He rule in our hearts, and overflow to our marriage.

If we have unforgiveness in our hearts –if we have unresolved anger within us — take it away from us, Lord. Fill us with peace and give us hearts of compassion.

Let grace abound, and teach us to love as You love.

In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.

Our Featured Book

This delightful and inspiring journal takes you on an exploration through the book of Hebrews. Insight, encouragement, and thought-provoking questions motivate you to dig deeper into scripture and hold fast to your faith. The words “better,” “greater,” and “more” appear frequently throughout Hebrews as the author sets out to show the reader that Christ is better than the angels, higher than the priests, and greater than any Old Testament prophet. The new covenant through the blood of Jesus Christ is superior in every way to that under the Levitical law. This literary masterpiece encourages us to grow, to press on in the face of affliction, and to grab hold of the gospel which we have been taught. From front to back, it explains who Christ is, what He’s done, and why He’s the only way to salvation.
