Prayer for Fogiveness from others and Protection

by Praise42055 (Texas)

I am asking that you intercede and pray for me and my home life situation.

I have a housemate that will not/has not forgiven me for something that I accidentally, unknowingly said/indulged to friend of hers that was inquiring about where she might be because she didn’t show up for work and we both had not seen her for several days. Concerned, I accidentally divulged info that she might be out of town (in a particular city), because she usually is. I ACCIDENALLY said this, not trying to tell her business, it WAS A PURE ACCIDENT and when she did come home and found out, she got extremely irate, mad and unforgiving. I apologized over and over and over again telling her that I REALLY WASN’T trying to tell her business, but she didn’t want to hear no parts of my apology. She spewed such venom at me that I couldn’t believe how she went off on me. Again, I told her that I was sorry and that it did not come from a place of malice but out of concern…and again, IT WAS AN ACCIDENT! She kept going over the fact that she is private and that she doesn’t tell my business and that she is highly upset!!! In addition, both of us are 45 (grown) and she called an older brother of mine to tell him and complain. Her actions in trying to be messy and spiteful is so unwarranted and surprising to me. She is avoiding me in our home. Stays in her room. Comes out when I am not around. Goes back in when I am out. Refuses to look at me, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

She had hinted to my brother that it is time for me to leave. I am in school and on a very fixed income and am looking for another job to supplement that, but I am not prepared as of yet to move if that be the case. I cannot move now!

I ask that you intercede and pray for forgiveness and that the walls of hatred and un-forgiveness come down. The walls of spitefulness come down I ask that you intercede that love and forgiveness enters her heart, and I pray for a hedge of protection to surround me in the name of Jesus. Protection from words of evil, of ill will, words of back biting, words that are messy and vengeful and spitefulness are destroyed. the Bible says that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Lord will lift up a standard. I pray that that standard protects me! I ask that you pray for our (once) friendship. It is a shame to think that a MISTAKE costs us our friendship. It makes me think if we really were friends. I know that she has a lot of personal/family issues and problems with the job that she says that she is handling, but I know that it is still a source of pain for her, and it seems that a lot of that anger has spewed out on me. I ask that you also pray for favor that I am able to get an additional job to sustain myself so that when that time does come, I am well prepared to move. But most of all, I pray that the love of Jesus enters both of us and that healing begins.

Please pray for me…in Jesus’ name…Amen!
