Shedding Bitterness

BitternessGet rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.  

Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. ~ Ephesians 4:31-32

Everlasting Lord of Peace,

I confess I sin.  I am bitter and resentful.

I  pull out that old carpet-bag of transgressions and allow bitterness and rage to surround my heart leaving little room for love and forgiveness.

I cast all these black ugly sins on your altar.

Clothe me in your compassion that I may forgive others as you have first forgiven me.

Let your sweetness and kindness grow within me.

It is in your name, Jesus I pray. Amen.
