Taking Authority Over Your Emotions (The Anger Prayer)

Emotions are an area that many Christians don’t understand. Because of this, Believers often allow their emotions to lead them. As a result, emotionally-led decisions take them on a course that is out of the will of God for their lives.

While God gave every human being emotions, it is critical that we get control over negative emotions and subject them to the Word of God. Make these daily confessions so that you can subject your feelings to God’s Word and make the right decisions:

Heavenly Father, thank You for giving me healthy emotions. I declare that negative emotions will not impact my decisions, neither will they dictate my responses to difficult circumstances.

I will submit my feelings to You in every situation that I encounter in life. You have given me authority over the power of the enemy, and I declare that nothing shall by any means hurt me, including people and situations that try to negatively influence my emotions.

When I feel overwhelmed by life, or troubled by negative emotions, like Jesus, I will pray and keep moving forward. I bind depression, anxiety, worry, fear, doubt, anger, rejection and any other negative emotion that tries to attack my mind. I possess power, love and a sound mind.

I thank You, Father, that I walk in peace, joy and the comfort of the Holy Ghost. I have the mind of Christ and my emotions are controlled by the Word of God. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Bad Attitude is a Choice

We all face times in our lives… when certain people, or problems, or situations rub us the wrong way and we “go there”…  meaning specifically, we get a bad attitude.

Sometimes even in moments when we feel like things are out of our hands, or we’re confused… we can jump into a BAD attitude.

When we get a bad attitude, it shows. Your whole demanor can change, you are short with your words, you are easy to vex… pretty much, it’s NOT a very becoming snapshot of you.

But whatever the cause of your bad attitude is, please remember two (2) things…

(1) Having a Bad Attitude (or Good Attitude) is YOUR Choice

We are masters of our own emotion, so never feel that just because you are “hot under the collar”, that there is no way you can be in control of your emotions.

Next time you get irate and mad… try breathing in and out deeply, counting to ten, removing yourself from the stressful situation, and even writing and journaling about the reason why you are mad.

Silly as it sounds, they work!

(2) You Don’t Have to Keep a Bad Attitude

Just like if a person buys you a pair of shoes that are too big… or if a shirt that doesn’t fit, as long as you don’t claim it (by removing the tags or using it to the point where it is non-returnable)… you can return that piece of merchandise that does not fit, by having the receipt.

The same is true with a Bad Attitude… that is a “gift” that comes from the enemy. You have a paper receipt (the promises in the Word of God)… that allows you to return this “bad gift” right back to the store where it was bought!

Until NEXT time, be positive, have a good attitude, and walk in God’s blessings today!
