“Dear Heavenly Father,
I come to you with my anger, my disappointments and my hurt. I ask that you cover me with your love. Heal me in all the places that need to be healed so I can be a person that emits health and warmth, not bitterness and resentment.
Lord, please release me from any guilt as my parent’s happiness is not my responsibility. Help me to be a good example of what true forgiveness really is.
I ask that you give me wisdom on how to be there for each one, as I know that I am not the only person hurting in this painful situation. Help me to talk to each one in a sensitive yet stern way when they start to cross the line and put each other down in front of me.
Lord, mature me beyond my years to handle this crisis they way you would. Lead me in the way everlasting so I will not regret my youth like so many who have been in the same situation as I am in right now.
For my siblings, help me to encourage, to be a good ear listen and to find the right support if I am not enough. Lead us to the right Bible verses to stand on during our family storm. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.”
