Lord, despite my best intentions to remain calm and
take things in stride, my anger has gotten the better of me once again.
Keep me from doing or saying things that I might later regret.
Help me find ways to use this time productively until
I am enough in control of myself to make rational and wise decisions.
May I learn to look more on the positive side of everything, even
the most difficult situations. Relieve
me of the burden of this painful emotion, and restore peace in my life.
Help me to find some time each day to reflect on what is good and
beautiful in the world and in the people around me. Amen.
