Interrupting the Cycle of Anger

I’m a reactor. My gut response is to react to the circumstances of life. I can feel it bodily. My heart rate speeds up, my face gets flushed, and I start having ALL the thoughts. All of them—good, bad, and everything in between. In 20 seconds or less, my mind has already contemplated every worst-case scenario and may or may not have tried to convince me they’re eminent.

Thankfully, I’ve almost (key word, almost) mastered learning not to speak of or act on them until I’ve had time to process them privately. That’s a choice I’ve realized I need to make that goes against what I’m actually feeling on the inside.

It’s a choice we all have as the Spirit of God is at work in us.

On this week’s episode of the podcast, we’ll learn about the cycle of anger, and how we can learn to interrupt it in ourselves, and then help our children do the same thing. Tune in now!

Today’s show is brought to you by our newest Prayer GuidePraying God’s Word for Your Angry Child, by Tricia Goyer. As parents, we want the best for our children. We can read books, attend therapy sessions, and try different techniques. Ultimately, we are still determining what we can do. However, when we pray for our children, we ask God to intervene. We acknowledge that we cannot fix everything independently and surrender our children to God’s care.

Praying for your angry child doesn’t have to be complicated or time-consuming, it just has to be done.

With biblical teaching on anger, scripture-inspired prayers, and space to journal using our Think, Pray, Praise method of daily prayer, this digital prayer guide is perfect for the busy mom who needs God to move in the hearts of her kids. Learn more here.
