The Scriptural Rosary: Variations on a Theme

Anger

A prayer (say this prayer once at the start of the Rosary all together):
Heavenly Father, you have shown me so clearly that I cannot overcome anger in my own strength and by my own resources. Grant me, therefore, by the power of your Holy Spirit, the grace to control my temper, and the ability to respond with love - no matter how grave the provocation or how hurful the injury. I make this prayer in Jesus’s name. Amen.

Our Father ...
“You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, ‘Raca,‘ is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
(Matthew 5:21-22)
Hail Mary ...

An angry man stirs up dissension, and a hot-tempered one commits many sins.

Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
