Praying when we are frustrated is something we all go through. It's an emotion that comes sweeping into any situation, sometimes when we least expect it.
We can see in scripture that even God was angry and upset with His people (Deuteronomy 9:8, Exodus 15:7, Numbers 11:1-2).
As children of God, carefully crafted in His image, we can have feelings of hurt and discontentment too.
It's okay to be annoyed and irritated.
However, there is a fine line between good and bad anger.
Righteous indignation or anger can come when we see evil prevailing in a situation, the enemy coming against our prayers, and other such situations. We are simply mad at something or someone violating the will of God.
On the other hand, getting upset and walking in sin happens when we go against the Bible and step over into sin.
Sinning against God because we are angry gives the enemy a foothold into our life.
Life happens and when it does feelings come with it.
There are many reasons we can get sinfully mad. It could be because of our pride or any number of reasons.
What matters most is that we don't allow it to take root in our heart because it can hinder our prayers and ultimate our relationship with God.
With the help of the Holy Spirit, the frustration prayers below will help you live in victory through Christ when your emotions try to get the best of you.
