Virtue: Self-Control

In May we will live out the virtue of Self-Control.  Self-control means to have control over our passions and desires.  One way to live with Self-control is by controlling your reactions when you feel angry or frustrated.


Dear Jesus,

Thank You for all the desires You have given me, because they remind me of the desire in my heart that only You can fill!  Help me to control my tongue when I am supposed to be silent; my hands when I am supposed to keep them to myself; my eyes when I am supposed to be focused on a particular thing; and my ears to listen to only those things I am supposed to hear.
