Mending Broken and Strained Friendships

by SJ (Nebraska)

Lord, I thank you for the people you have placed in my life. Each and every one has helped me along the way in their own way. I ask for you to mend the strained and somewhat broken relationship/friendship between Shelly and I.

Please send your holy spirit to speak to her heart and take away any anger, bitterness, frustration, and tension and replace it with love, understanding, and care. I miss my relationship with her so very much as well as the connection and joy she has brought to my life. Please help her to forgive all my wrongs and let me back into her life.

Please do not let her cut me out as she has helped me so much and I am so very thankful for her. Help me to continue to bear this cross with you by my side, Lord, and to handle this situation in the way you desire. I love you, Lord, and I thank you for taking this matter that is so dear to my heart in your loving hands.

In the name of Jesus, may you please mend this relationship and bring back the close friendship we once had for so many years. Amen.
