Lord thank you for all the times you have forgiven me. I have done so much wrong, and when I asked forgiveness, you have forgiven me whole heartedly. I as sorry for holding a grudge towards my family. I am sorry for not understanding their situations and forgiven them for not showing up for me. Lord, they have forgiven me and accepted my life situations that prevented me from showing up for them. I ask that I do the same for them and forgive them for not showing up. Help me not to compare the times when they show up for others. Help me to be happy for them instead of jealous. You have made me a practical person, who can enjoy life, and be practical. I pray that I don’t compare myself to my cousins as well. I pray for the confidence you gave me to shine wherever you place me each day. I pray to forgive my family and friends for not showing up for me. They have challenges and I am not the one to judge. I would not want them to judge me and if they do, I pray to forgive them and to be forgiven.
