What is TEMPERANCE?
It is the practice of being reasonable and able to control your behavior. It is also called moderation. Your ability to control yourself in the face of obvious things that would make you angry is your test of maturity.
Being temperate is a spirit. Being angry is also a spirit. You can quench the flame of your hot temper by walking in love. Your ability to control your behavior both in positive or negative circumstances puts you in command of life and helps you to make right judgments. Being temperate is an indication that you are a good husband.
Your reasonableness is the icing on the cake of your call to husbandhood in God.

Beginning from today, I…………………………. (insert your name) control my temper. I put my anger under check. I will not hurt my wife and children with my words or physically. I overcome evil with good. Lord, I receive help today to live in moderation and to take full control of my emotions, feelings and expectations.
