Compassionate Father, you are the God of all peace and love. Help me turn from anger and irritation and pursue peace and harmony. The Bible says that words are powerful and I pray that I would speak words of peace instead of anger. May I use my words to build up rather than tear down. When I am under pressure, help me to remain compassionate and gentle. Protect me from sin when I feel angry. Lord, bless me and keep me, make your face shine upon me. Turn your face towards me and give me peace. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
