Don't let my heart be poisoned by negativity, by cruelty. Please, lift me above the ashes of relationships that others have burned down. Help me to heal. Help me to initiate reconciliation.
I see, Daddy, why you want us to love each other; you want us to extend grace to each other. It does not look Christ-like to be excluding others or by being unkind. I look to you, Daddy, to help me rise above, to not be dismayed or put down or have my spirit crushed.
I want to be kind and gracious. I want to extend You to others.
Daddy, what will it take for someone to give their brokenness up? When will healing begin? Please, help! Only You can change and heal those who need it. (and don't we all need it!)
Your devoted daughter,
