LORD, YOUR ANGER RISES against the wicked. May
it call those who do wrong to repentance. May it purify
and restore. Give me wisdom and patience to trust you
with consequences—for others and for myself. Your
discipline is always for our good. Help me never to
forget that when you sharpen your sword against those
who embrace evil, it flows from your heart of mercy
and justice. Amen.
