8.7.13 Arrow Prayer: Lord, the more I try to clean and organize, the more angry I get inside finding things hubby just set somewhere illogical with no sense. I used to fight this madness, but I gave up for years and years to keep the peace. I do not like fighting. I do not like getting angry. I do not like being turned into a grump by the actions of others. Calm my attitude and heart to keep from anger. Guard my tongue against stirring up conflict and quarrels. Give my hubby an awareness to his actions to prevent future tensions and may he cooperate with me in togetherness to finally get this house back in order. It is time for me to stop giving in after all these years and finally get my house into a condition in which I enjoy living in. Marriage is about compromise and it is his turn to give in and let me have my organized way for a while, rather than the nonsensical randomness and disorder he prefers to live in. Give us each an extra measure of patience in this situation. Proverbs 15:18 A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict, but the one who is patient calms a quarrel.
