Button pusher prayer

Is there someone in your life that bothers you? Someone that makes you see red? We all have people in our lives that push our buttons and get us to overreact.

Still, even if their actions are inappropriate or very wrong, it’s important to check your heart.

Remember, as a child of God, things are different. You don’t have to let rage consume you. You don’t have to let another person influence and control your heart. Instead, your rest and peace depend on the only one that is perfect: Jesus.

Don’t let the enemy manipulate your emotions and reactions. Instead, focus on how God wants you to understand things – especially yourself. Remain in a healthy, centered place. Stay focused on God’s word. See his hand at work everywhere – even if it’s not how you like it.

A message and prayer from Vincent:

Has this site blessed you? Learn about our patron program.

Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

Matthew 7:3-5

But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for he is kind to the ungrateful and the selfish. Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.

Luke 6:35-36

BUTTON PUSHER PRAYER

Oh blessed Lord,

Where do these people come from? Why do they cross my path? The ones that drive me crazy. They bring out the worst in me.

They way they act, think and talk makes my blood boil. Who do they think they are? Where’s the meaning here, oh Lord?

When I get mad, I might say, “I could just kill so-and-so.” What’s going on in my heart?

Could it be I see my shadow there? Or a light you send to tell me, “Here’s where you need healing and help.”

Give me understanding. Yes, they may be wrong, but who am I to condemn? Who do I think I am?

Put my heart in your hands, oh Lord. Show me again that heaven is a gift, not a right.

Help me not to become an even bigger monster than the ones that make me mad.

Yes, I can be firm. Yes, I can be confident. I might even get angry sometimes.

But not at the cost of anyone’s soul. Not theirs. Not mine.

Keep me. Bless me. And bless them too.

In Jesus name, Amen.

  1. Thank you for this good message.
    Please help me to pray for freedom for my christian 86 year old mother – Brita. The Lord showed me for over a year ago that she has the spirit of rejection in her and she is tormented by it. Not only herself is tormented but me and my brother and all around her is affected by this spirit of rejection. The Lord have said that he will lead me through freedom for her and for all my wounds that this spirit has damage me. I am so very tired to have this criticism from her every time we meet. So I need prayers too for my mental health and I also love to have some Joy into my life to come before the breakthrough is coming?
    There is so much pain in my heart from all these years growing up with this spirit in my family.
    God is so good who showed me what is the problem, so much easier to understand what is going on.
    Thank You for your prayers I need them Big Time!
    Lots of Love from Sweden.

    • Thank you Anette for your message and for sharing your story. Criticism from a parent can be very hard to take. You want to accept and love with all your heart, but you get hurt… right?

      Go into the heart of Christ for understanding and protection. He too suffered and sacrificed for others. He did it out of love.
      Dig into the depths of this truth and make it yours. Let it give you clarity so you can understand your mom better.

      Keep praying for your mother. Keep asking God to change her heart. Keep loving and serving her.
      Fight for your family with your prayers.

      The world does not understand this kind of thinking. But the children of God embrace it.

      I will be praying for you!

      • Hello Vincent and THANK YOU for your nice reply 🙂

        When I am doing all these things you are recommending and time passes..
        More coming from my mom’s mouth and more tired I get and hurt..
        God is there and I seek and lean into HIM every day for daily survival,
        I wonder if it is me who are doing something wrong?
        I am so tired to give myself the blame for this.
        Then God came and said I AM BIGGER THAN ALL MY CHALLENGES!
        THANK YOU JESUS – I HAVE NO PRESSURE 🙂

        In my lonliness in this, it is hard and christians in this area of Sweden have no
        experiences of warfare. They do not understand what I am talking about..
        God (in my spirit) also been showing Josef from the bible so I am in training to be Gods
        “forerunner” in the future.
        I am grateful for your prayers – THANK YOU VERY MUCH 🙂

        Lots of Love from the west coast of Sweden.
        Blessings 4U
