How have you prayed to address angry reactions, either with yourself or others?

One question—many answers. Read a selection of responses from site visitors: 

“Angry reactions” can seem like doing something about the injustices in the world, from little annoyances to large historical and global inhumanities. The tantrums of my early childhood were useless, except to turn my thought to effective problem-solving skills. But even then, I noticed too often a lingering anger deep within me. And yet, I felt that it was better to be angry than apathetic. Through Christian Science, I discovered that anger doesn’t have to be my starting point for prayer and/or action. I could begin with Love, and instead of just solving problems, actually expect, express, and witness permanent healing. I turned to the Ten Commandments. “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” (Exodus 20:3). Who is this God in whose image we have all been created? We are “spiritually wired” to respond lovingly by God’s grace for God’s glory and the highest good of all concerned.
