"Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking, be put away from you. with all malice" Eph.4:31)
Key Thought: The opposite of bitterness is sweetness.
Prayer: Help me, mighty Father, to keep the attitudes of my heart, the thoughts of my mind, and the words of my mouth free from bitterness at all times. When either circumstances or other people’s actions try me, may I be like Hannah who responded with prayer when she was experiencing bitterness of soul. She prayed to you, weeping profusely, and you heard and answered the cry of her heart. You turned her bitterness into joy.
My heart is heavy with my own bitterness. Knowing that you know more about me than I do. I choose to obey you by not spending my years in the bitterness of my soul. Restore me, and make me live. Grant me your peace, and deliver my soul from the pit of corruption. Thank you, wonderful God, for casting all my sins behind your back.
I repent of the sin of bitterness in my life, fully realizing that it have defiled me and others.
From this time forward, I will forsake all bitterness, wrath, anger, quarreling. resentment, and evil speaking. I put them behind me now. I will not allow these things to be part of my life any longer. In their place . I will be kind, tender hearted, and forgiving, toward others even as you, dear God, have forgiven me, thank you for teaching me to obey you and understanding you when you speak to me, I love you Father and praise you, forever your child Juliette Gomes Ambrose in Jesus amen.
