WHISNews21 Prayer Line and thoughts for yesterday, today and tomorrow by Marty Martel
Sad news from Tommy Overstreet. His sister Doris Lynch has passed away.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to T.O. at this time of sadness for him and his family.
MAY DORIS REST IN THE PEACE IN THE LOVING ARMS OF OUR BLESSED SAVIOR.
Dear Marty: My sister Doris Lynch passed away this morning in Branson, Missouri. Some of your readers will remember Doris when she worked at the Country Music Hall of Fame (3 1/2 years), she later formed her own Tour Company Nashville Express Tours with sister Pat. They brought thousands of fans to Music City and the Grand Ole Opry. She will be greatly missed, she was 81 at the time of her passing. The family would appreciate your prayers.
Prayer to be Free of Anger
Lord Christ, you taught us that anger with our brethren is a violation of your law,
that it condemns us just as murder condemns us. Let me see clearly that anger is moral filth,
as your servant James taught us. And yet, anger arises in my mind.
[Pause to remember occasions when you have been angry recently.]
I repent my anger, and ask that I be forgiven for this sin, by my faith in you.
Holy Spirit, be with me now and help me to recognize my anger instead of denying it.
Teach me to forgive each and every act that makes me angry.
Where I have been directly offended, grant me the spirit of forgiveness;
where I have become angry over things I have seen other people do or heard them say,
Imbue me with such a powerful sense of acceptance that my anger will disappear.
Let me remember always, Holy God, that I am not in charge of the world;
You are. Give me total faith that you know what you are doing.
I pray not to live with suppressed anger, nor to deceive myself by denying my anger
When I have merely suppressed it, but let it be utterly abolished within me.
Grant me to live in love and peace, as my Savior did and taught us to do.
Let my anger be crucified, I pray in your name, Lord Christ,
