January 18 – Morning


Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.

(Proverbs 14:29)


Dear God,

You know the struggles and challenges I face in controlling my emotions. I ask for Your grace and wisdom to help me cultivate a spirit of patience, understanding, and self-control. Help me to be slow to anger and quick to listen, so that I may bring peace and harmony to those around me.

I pray that You would strengthen and guide me in my interactions with others, so that I may be a source of encouragement, love, and positivity. May my words and actions reflect Your goodness and grace, and may I be a light that points others to You. Thank You for Your patience with me, and for the love and forgiveness You extend to me each day.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
