things have not gone my way…

WHEN YOU HAVE LOST YOUR TEMPER

O God, I know my temper is far too quick.

I know only too well how liable I am to flare up,

and to say things for which afterwards I am sorry.

O God, help me. Help me to think before I speak.

When I feel I am going to blast out,

help me to keep quiet for just a moment or two,

until I get a grip on myself again.

Help me to take myself and others less seriously so that I don’t reach the point of being angry at all.

Help me to keep perspective and to let go of my anger.

Amen.
