Study: Prayer helps calm anger
The Bible tells us to pray for our enemies. Now psychologists are saying the same thing.

Saying a prayer may help calm anger and allow people to behave less aggressively towards those who have upset them, researchers say.

"Prayer gets people to view the world in a very kind and gentle way and reduces feelings of anger with empathy," said Brad Bushman, co-author of the study and professor of communication and psychology at Ohio State University.

A better title would be: "Study: Biblical prayer helps calm anger", since the study deals with praying specifically for your enemies.

The Pharisees prayed long prayers for show and were angry men who hated Jesus.

Matthew 6:5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

Matthew 23:14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

Matthew 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

The study is right, praying for your enemies is right and healthy!

More nonsense from the world.

Anger is part of the sinful nature, and the only way of dealing with that is a conversion experience, repenting of sin, trusting in Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and being FILLED with the Spirit of God. Galatians Five spells out the fruits of the sinful nature and the fruit of the Spirit. Good fruit is not mine by nature, but when my own nature is mortified, and the Spirit given free course, it is quite logical that when the Spirit fills me, I am filled with the character of Jesus Christ.

Hmmm, you mean Christians didn't know that!

Psalms 37
7 Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes.
8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret, it leads only to evildoing.---NASB
