A Prayer for When I Feel Angry

I feel angry, God.
I’m angry because _____________.
I’m angry at _______________.
It feels like the world is angry and I’m joining the chorus.
The discordant notes jar the symphony of my soul
Leaving me feeling exhausted, irritated … alone.
I don’t want that. It tastes bitter. It clouds the sun.
My soul is not at rest. I fear I will uncork and then what?
Regret? Hurt? More anger?
You are the only safe place to bring this.
Holy Spirit, would you sing over me a new song?
Would you help me to soar above these angry clouds
To a place where I can see the sunshine,
Where I can gain perspective,
And feel the warmth of your presence?
Feed my soul today, God.
