If an enemy were insulting me, I could endure it if a foe were rising against me, I could hide. But it is you, a man like myself, my companion, my close friend, with whom I once enjoyed sweet fellowship at the house of God, as we walked about among the worshipers. Psalm 55:12-14
Lord, today I come to you hurting. This wound from a friend is almost more than I can bear. I feel broken hearted, and I want justice. Lord, I know that justice is not mine to give, so I come to you open-handed. Here is the friendship that has wounded me so much, Lord- take this hurt from me, help me feel your peace and your love toward me now.
I don’t want to extend grace. But I know you have been so gracious toward me- all my life you have lavished grace on me as Ive sinned against you. Help me be humble. Help me see my part to play. Help me give grace and love toward my friend.
Soften my friends heart toward me now let them return grace to me too.
In Jesus Name Amen.
