Please help me to dwell on the good and the positive in my life. I know that it is You who examines our hearts. Search the inner depths of my heart and expose anything that is not of You so I can be set free of it.
Lord, where I have directed anger toward others in my life or held anger inside of me, I confess that as sin and ask You to take this burden of anger away from my soul. Heal any wounds that I have inflicted, through my words and actions, in others and myself. Help me to speak sweet words of healing, and to bring Your restoration to every situation where it is needed, for I know that pleases You.
Thank You, Lord, that You will redeem my soul in peace from the battle that is against me. I believe that You, the God of peace will crush the enemy under my feet. Help me to depart from thoughts of anger and bouts with depression; help me to seek peace and actively pursue it. Help me to live righteously because I know there is a connection between the presence of Your Holy Spirit and the fruits of self-control, peace, and joy. Thank You that You will take away all anger in me and keep me in perfect peace, because my mind is fixed on You Father. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
I struggle with anger when It comes to my little sister. She likes to belittle me around people. Also, she likes to sit around me and listen to my conversation and run back and tell every like thing I do. I don’t like hanging around her because I fell like her goal is to hurt me in any way she can. How do I get over this? We go to the same church she was there first and I came some years later. My oldest sister was there too but she left, she said she could not take it anymore… Read more »
I’m so sorry to hear about this strife with your sister. I’ll be lifting you both in prayer. In the meantime, this of how Jesus or Paul would handle this. When we’re having strife with family or fellow believers, we should consider being examples and lights of the love of Jesus. Pray, read the Scriptures, and ask the Holy Spirit each day to fill you with his power because we can love the way we should love on our own. We need his help.
I struggle with anger at the ways I have been treated by people. I just want to let it go and move forward but my mind dwells on the terrible way I have been treated by others for no reason.
I can empathize in many ways. We just have to continually remind ourselves that our patterns (Christ and Paul) were treated much worse than us and chose to trust and live according to Scriptural doctrine…forgiveness and with the fruits of the Spirit. Sending prayers…
I spent like an hour typing a reply and it’s not even here! I give up. Blessings in Jesus anyway!
As with everyone else here and perhaps most people worldwide if truth be told, I struggle with anger for things I can do absolutely nothing about. I have two points to add. Yes, we must always be sorry when we fall back into sin, but I agree with Paul (post says May 9, 2010 5:52am) but when I pasted it came out like this: https://revivedlife.com/prayer-to-release-anger/#comment-216 Anyway I believe a way to confess is in thanksgiving saying, Lord Jesus, thank you for dying for this sin and strengthen me with your grace to remember the precious blood you shed so that… Read more »

Sorry I meant to say god gave you power over Satan and authority over demons
Good gosh I need prayers. Each time I find joy in gaining more closeness to God, I slip into temptation and sin again. This makes me sick to my stomach when I do, and makes me more on edge with others and my temper becomes what feels like possession. I pray and pray. I know I love Jesus Christ. I know I hate sin. I hate myself for choosing it. Even more so when spite brews within me and my fuse is even more shortened. Please, pray for me. I am a wretch, but I don’t want to be.
Praying for you Christopher I am going through the same problem pray for me too it’s Ayonna.
Hi Christopher- I had a tough time with sexual sin and lust and one day I prayed and admitted to God that I was powerless over it and to please take it from me. Well there was a dramatic change after that . God Bless you

Please pray for me that the chains of anger will be taken away by God from my family. I have this anger that comes like a volcano probably as a result of my Dad who is also an angry man. I tend to shout at my kids and I am seeing this anger now at with my seven year old son and 5 year old daughter. Lord God please help me.
Lifting prayers for you brother. This sounds so familiar. My Dad was an angry man as well and I believe that example passed to me in many ways…manifesting itself in outbursts toward my children. God will help you, as he has helped me. Get in the word daily and be renewed. It can and will happen. See my latest post in the Q&A section for more about being renewed.
Hello Jay my dad was the same, my first Memory age 4 was of my dads anger, My dad has passed away and I so miss him.Your anger can come about through insecurities or tiredness, next time you feel angry ask why your angry,and work on you life isn’t easy especially being a mum no one gives you a handbook.Children need discipline and boundaries it makes them feel secure.NO SHOUTING,you know how it made you feel,scared frightened insecure,the fact your seeking advice is a step in the right direction.Keeping you in My prayers Jay.Mary from Scotland .May God Bless you… Read more »

Lifting prayers for you, Samuel. I recommend taking the time to read through some of our “Doctrine” posts and devoting yourself to studying Scripture. When you know the love of Christ, which surpasses all knowledge, you will be filled with all the fullness of God (Eph. 3:19).

I have a problem with my anger. I shout and I say bad things when I am angry. I know it’s because deep down I am just hurt, but because I try to be strong it’s like the hurt converts in to anger. But I feel so awful after. I’m ruining my life and others. I am thankful for this site because I was able to find a prayer to express to God that I don’t want to be this person anymore. I hope I can become a better person for myself and others.
Lifting prayers for you Janine!

With all of the stuff that’s out there on the internet, it’s good to know that there are sights like this. This prayer is beautiful and says everything that im thinking in this moment of sadness and anger. Viewiing anger and depression in biblical terms helps me understand that im not alone and that I will get through it because God said I will.
Thank you for the prayer, I keep it in my bible with Ephesians 6 and read it every day to have my Armor of God against the enemy. He does roar around and wants to destroy, but we know Jesus already has the victory! Thanks so much for the prayer, I struggle with anger when my teenage daughters disrespect me & are selfish. It is very difficult, I say things out of anger, but I press on! God Bless

Just want to second the other comments. It is hard to find my own words right now but your prayer helped me express myself to God. Thank you so much and I will continue to use this prayer in times of frustration and anger.
Thanks for that prayer I really needed. It’s in God’s hands now and I trust him to help me. God Bless you all.
It is in God’s hands, brother. Thank you for commenting and God Bless!
I still struggle with some anger thank-you for the prayer, sometimes we don’t have our own words
You’re welcome Jana. Thanks for taking the time to comment and God Bless!!
Hi my name is Paul and im reading through your anger prayer and I dont agree with 1 part which is a major part. Is this prayer for a new believer or a christian? Because if its for a christian when you pray the sinners prayer to you ask Jesus to come into your life and forgive you of your sins. Thats the forgiveness of youe sins once and for all! Because after saying the sinners prayer and believing it you are no longer under the law but under grace and being under grace means that if you slip up… Read more »
Hi Paul. My apologies for the nearly seven year late reply! Your comment was caught in a filter. I’m curious to know if you still see this the same way…specifically, do you still believe in the sinner’s prayer? If so, I would encourage you to give this clip a listen: https://youtu.be/0O-dXKlaKcw?t=13m19s (it begins at the part during which the sinner’s prayer is discussed in relation to Scripture). Let me know your thoughts? God bless!
