Daily Prayable: When You Notice Someone is Angry, Try This... - Monday, January 17, 2011

Help me resist the desire to treat my anger as a weapon, so that I will not perpetuate hurt by responding with aggression.
And please teach me grace, so that I may know peace by learning to forgive.

Written by Susan Diamond, ...
There were seven Spanish angels at the altar of the sun.
They were praying for the lovers in the valley of the gun.
And when the battle stopped and the smoke cleared,
There was thunder from the throne,
And seven Spanish angels took another angel home.
