I am very concerned with two of my friends who have entered
the dark tunnel of anger.
they have just now begun a serious attempt at reconciliation
in their marriage. It is such a critical time! I ask You to help me
in my contacts with them.
please give me discernment as to what I can do or say to
communicate my caring feelings for them in the very best way.
I am learning from reading a helpful book that couples struggling
with this situation must be prepared to take risks while establishing
effective communication. During this time, the verbal and non-
verbal expressions can be misunderstood by either partner.
Hurt feelings, bitterness, and unfair treatment in the past make it
difficult to establish a new footing.
But Lord, please put Your hand over them in a special way… so they
will will emerge from this tunnel into the warm, forgiving sunshine
of Your love. Praying has brought them this far; and relying on Your
guidance will take them safely through these trying times.
I am trusting in your continuing guidance of my relationship
with them. Amen.
Thank You for the practical counsel available in 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8;
as penned by the Apostle Paul on the subject of a living LOVE relationship!
