Omnipotent Everlasting Father, in every situation of my life, I give You full control. Your Word constantly reminds me that you care for me.
My spirit is broken, but through the workings of the Holy Spirit, it all works together for my good. My heart is broken, but You make me whole. Though I may experience pain, it just serves to make me stronger.
Psalm 37:8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; do not fret—it only causes harm.
Romans 12:21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
You are the Alpha and the Omega, the Author and finisher of my faith. Help me to focus on the blessings and positives in my life today.
As you examine my heart, Lord, search and reveal anything that is not of You that I may be set free.
James 1:19-20 So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
As circumstances attempt to overwhelm me, Lord fill me with Peace and Clarity. Help me to control my anger and rage, Oh Loving Father. Help me not to be consumed in it. I pray that sin would not emerge as the anger infests my mind.

Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice.

Anger vs Rage
Anger and rage are related to each other and most people do not find any hard difference between the two. Both anger and rage are emotional outbursts.
Anger is a feeling or emotion that a person has when being offended or when wronged. Rage can be considered to be an action in retaliation to the anger that a person has. Rage is a situation when a person is not able to handle their anger in a proper way.
Anger is an emotion that every person comes across. It is just a feeling like happiness or sorrow. On the other hand, Rage is an extreme expression of anger.
Anger is an emotion that a person will have for only a few moments or for a day at the most. In case this emotion persists for longer periods, then it is rage. In anger, there is no blood shed but rage could lead to blood shed.
It can also be seen that anger is considered to be healthy, whereas rage is not considered healthy. This means that a person who is angry will have the power to control the emotions. But a person having rage has no control of their emotions and it could be sometimes destructive.
Some people say that rage involves an element of anger but anger does not have the pinch of rage. Unlike anger, rage is an intricate mix of fear, desperation anger and panic.
There is also the possibility that people in a rage forget what they say and do. But an angry person knows what he does and says. Unlike anger, rage is a complete blackout of the thoughts.

There are many Bible verses about anger, but this one really stands out to me. My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. ~ James 1:19-20
I couldn’t think of a better way to begin the Bible Verses About Anger post than with those very direct words from James. Anger is an emotion that mostly causes harm. Harm to yourself and others. Harm to your heart and soul. Anger will often produce a sensation or feeling of intense rage that people describe by the common phrases of “seeing red” or “making my blood boil.” We have all felt it at some point or another in our lives, towards someone, or something. Many times anger manifests itself in regrettable harsh words or actions towards the ones we love.
But how do you control your anger? How do you keep from acting upon the strong feeling of rage? For most of us, anger has caused us to be mistreated or has caused us to mistreat or threaten others in non-loving ways. Some of us seem to be able to “let things go” or “take a lot” before having an outburst, while others are described as having a “short fuse” when things can escalate rather quickly. Studying the Bible verses about anger below might give you insight into letting Christ help you deal with your anger.
Controlling our anger can be a difficult thing. Screaming, shouting, and telling someone “what you really think of them,” can make us feel empowered over the situation while we’re in the midst of it, that is until the rage subsides and you realize how much you have hurt the other person. We are warned in Proverbs to steer away from those who are easily angered because they will bring trouble and folly. Relationships can be scarred by the actions of an angry person.
The first step to controlling anger is to realize that the root of anger is pain. To quote the old song by R.E.M., “everybody hurts, sometimes.” Our pain comes to us in a physical or emotional sense. Knowing and acknowledging this pain is key in beginning to heal from it. Second, is to lay that burden of pain at Messiah’s feet, to realize the things you cannot change or control and ask God to help in those areas. Third, we can pray to God for healing and change. Having a changed heart full of grace and forgiveness is the best place to start overcoming the anger that wants to rise up from within.
May these Bible verses about anger help you realize there are many things to get angry about, such as murder, child abuse, and those that make false accusations. But most things in our life, such as the long line at the grocery store, traffic jams or a child making an honest mistake are not worth the anger. Ask yourself is this something Jesus would get upset about? If not, pray about it and have God help you control your anger. May God Bless you abundantly!
