my brother has a bad habit of saying "sorry, sorry" a lot, literally every 15 words. i am in the same room as he is most of the day, and i have a really hard time restraining myself from venting my annoyance on him. so can you pray for me to be more forbearing?

why don't you?
He's your brother. Be open with him. Don't vent, but explain.

Besides, that's just annoying and you wouldn't be the only one saying it.
That, and it seems to be an escape from any form of confrontation which I (I don't know about any others) view as unhealthy.

Not saying your brother has mental problems, but just one of those ticks we all have.

i have explained, and he keeps saying he will stop, but it's one of those things that doesn't even know when he does it.

I love sibling annoyances


....


he'll eventually "grow out of it".
But until then, come up with your own two words..
When he says "Sorry, sorry" say something like "I forgive, I forgive" or "Crunchy, Crunchy"

Just try and not let it bother you. He's just saying simple words.. I know it's hard, my sisters sing really annoying songs and make tacky noises (i'm not saying i dont.. but its more annoying to me when they do it ) so i guess we're all in the same boat.
