A reflection on the sin of anger

Reflections for the day

1 Corinthians 13:4-5

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Ephesians 4:29-32

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

God is waiting eagerly to respond with new strength to each little act of self-control, small disciplines of prayer, feeble searching after him. And his children shall be filled if they will only hunger and thirst after what he offers.
Richard Holloway

A reflection on the sin of anger

Heavenly Father,

Thou art a loving Father, and thou art a compassionate Father. We acknowledge that thou loves each and every one of us, and we acknowledge that thou love for Mankind is one that is all encompassing, and we acknowledge that thou love for Mankind is one that enables all to love thou with all of a heart, and to love thou with all of a soul, and to love thou with all of a mind, and to love thou with all of a strength. We acknowledge that thou love for Mankind is one that is not bound by words, and is one that is not bound by time, and is one that is not bound by energy. We acknowledge that thou love for Mankind is one that over-spills into a relationship, and  is one that enables all to love thou neighbour.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time of Lent that we reflect upon the time that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was for forty days in the Wilderness. We are able to see in a way that is clear that during a period of Lent many are led into a repentance, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that through the discipline of prayer that many may grow in grace, and some will perceive, and some will discern, that it is a desire of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, for all to  live a life of righteousness. We acknowledge that during a time in the Wilderness that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, was faced with a number of temptations, and one of these temptations has been described as a temptation of the flesh.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we reflect upon the sin of anger. We are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, lived by an example that can be described as godly, and thou example that thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, gave was one of patience and was one of understanding.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that thou Scriptures guide all to not give into an anger at a time of upset by a word, or by an action of another.

Heavenly Father, we acknowledge that many are able to see in a way that is clear that Man can turn to anger in what can be described as a way that is irascible. We are able to see in a way that is clear that some justify an anger by describing it is a fault of another. We are able to see in a way that is clear that some react in a way that can be described as emotional, and that a reaction in a way that is emotional is one that is reflected in what is said and in what is done in a way that will, and in a way that can cause a regret.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we ask thou to guide all Mankind in a daily life, and we ask thou to help many to have a concern for another, and we ask thou to help some to see in a way that is clear that a response should be one of wisdom, and should be one that is gentle in spirit. Heavenly Father, we ask thou to guide all Mankind to reflect upon the error of a way, and we ask thou to guide many to say sorry for an error of a way, and we ask thou to guide many to make a change in a life that is necessary.

Heavenly Father, we are able to see in a way that is clear that some perceive, and some discern, a need to talk through a problem, and we are able to see in a way that is clear that some perceive, and some discern, there is a need to deal with a situation that is contentious; we ask thou to guide some to choose a word carefully, and we ask thou to guide some to remain silent at the times when it is necessary to remain silent.

Heavenly Father, it is at this time we acknowledge that many have a feeling of anger, and a feeling of anger is one that has been expressed about the cost of living. We hope and we pray that many can turn to thou, and we hope and we pray that many will bring to thou a worry, and many will bring to thou a concern.

Heavenly Father, thou desire is for Mankind to live a life that is righteous, and we acknowledge that to live a life that is righteousness is one where there is a need to exercise a control of a feeling of anger of a self. We ask thou, Heavenly Father, to guide many to remain on thou path which is a path that is straight, and which is a path that is narrow, toward thou light which is eternal.

Heavenly Father, we uphold to thouself, Our Heavenly Father, all that hath been spake, in thou name of thouself, Our Heavenly Father, who together with thou Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, and thou Holy Spirit, reigns on most high, and is, and was, and will always be, the most supreme, and the most absolute power, and being, who governs all who are of this earth that we live on, now and always, for evermore.

Amen.

    It is sometimes difficult to control outrage when untrue accusations are levelled at us and we can retort in haste and regret at leisure. However, righteous indignation was demonstrated by Jesus against the Pharisees and priests when he discovered money lending taking place within his temple of prayer. Heavenly Father, guide us into making comments that are helpful and not hurtful. Amen
