Could you please pray that anger is reduced in me.  I'm fed up with things, but there's not much I can do about it.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, Have mercy on Your servant.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

I'll pray.  But keep in mind, often when we ask for something like this, we are put in a position that challenges us to fight it.  I know it seems that every time I pray for patience, I am put into a position that requires it.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

"Be angry, but sin not." [Ephesians 4:26]

"If you fail to master your anger on the first day, then on the next day and even sometimes for a whole year you will still be dragging it out. Anger will cause us to suspect that the words spoken in one sense were meant in another. And we will even do the same with gestures and every little thing. Be angry with the devil and not your own member. This is why God has armed us with anger. Not that we should thrust sword against our own bodies, but that we should baptize the whole blade in the devil's breast. "               -St. John Chrysostom-


"Lord have mercy."

"Whether it’s the guillotine, the hangman’s noose, or reciprocal endeavors of militaristic horror, radical evil will never be recompensed with radical punishment. The only answer, the only remedy, and the only truly effective response to radical evil is radical love."

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
