Hey all you wonderful pray-ers!
Thank you in advance for your prayers. I’m going to be going into a very tense family situation fairly shortly (beginning in the next hour or so for about 3-4 hours) in which I will be in contact with an aunt who has hurt my family (father, mother, siblings) very severely. Although I have tried to forgive her, I am just not there yet (neither are the rest of my family). I am supposed to avoid speaking to her (per my parents request). Please pray that
- the situation won’t be as tense as I’m anticipating
- God fills my heart with grace and love for this Aunt so that I can forgive her - and show her love
- God protects me from the temptation to lash out or be unkind
You can also pray for her in whatever ways you feel God is leading you.
Thank you very much. I will post (perhaps sometime tonight or tomorrow) to tell you how your prayers have been answered.
