Anger and Bipolar
« on: August 31, 2013, 07:46:11 PM »
Please pray that I may be able to control my anger better. I threw my iPhone at the wall and broke it two nights ago over something stupid. Please also pray for my recovery with bipolar disorder.

Thank you. Lord have mercy

Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

May the Lord grant you a spirit of peace and love, and strength to overcome any problem. A strong and enlightened spirit can overcome even physical ailments.

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.
