Lord, I need You to curb my temper
And bridle my tongue.
Help me to get along with people
Who are difficult, thoughtless and selfish.
Keep me from speaking barbed words
From unkind silences that hurt even more.
Restrain my anger when things go wrong
Believing that You want me to bear this trial
Make me sweet inside
That I may be warm with other people
Gentle in the things I say
Kind in what I do.
Bible Inspiration: Matthew 5:22
Everyone who grows angry with his brother shall be liable to judgment; any man who uses abusive language toward his brother shall be answerable to the Sanhedrin and if he holds him in contempt he risks the fires of Gehenna.
