Channeling Anger

Channeling anger

Reflect

Anger is a normal human emotion. It can let us know when something is unjust, or we have been hurt. The trick is not to dwell on the hurt, but to address the cause with love.


Pray

Father of Mercy,
y
ou are slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
Remove not my anger, but let my love be stronger.
Let my heart have anger for injustice,
but more so, may I have love for restoring the justice that was lost.
May your loving kindness restore what has been wounded.
Amen.


Act

Identify a place where you have been harboring anger. Ask the Lord to reveal the source of it, and also to reveal a loving way to respond.

Thank you for reminding us to discern between righteous anger and blaming anger. Yes, taking the next step is so important to following Jesus.
