I am so angry and frustrated with my child right now.
I have shown my child just how angry I am with my words and actions.
Lord, I know my words and actions were NOT good in your sight. Oh, but the emotions are SO strong right now, and my words and actions feel justified.
I am just SO furious, and I cannot see through the storm in my heart and mind.
Yet, I know that it’s not okay to treat anyone the way I just did, even when feeling angry.
It’s okay that I am angry; anyone would be upset with what I just experienced.
I do want to please you Lord and need your help right now.
Please, Lord, love my child through me because my sinful nature cannot love them the way they need to be loved in this moment.
I ask for protection for my child and me from the enemy and our sinful human natures.
“And don’t be afraid of the people, for I will be with you and will protect you. I, the LORD, have spoken!” Then the LORD reached out and touched my mouth and said, ‘Look, I have put my words in your mouth!'” Jeremiah 1:8-9 NLT
Lord, love them through me; please take over, show, and give them the love they need right now that I cannot provide in this moment.
Please forgive me for my words and actions toward my child.
I praise you, Lord!
Already I feel your hand working in my heart, and I feel your love pouring into me as you prepare me to go back to my child and recover with them.
Thank you for working in my heart, convicting me, growing me, and bringing my child and me closer to you.
Thank you, Lord, for all you are, all you teach me, and all you’ve blessed me with.
In Jesus’ name, I pray.
