Sometimes, damage creeps into our closest relationships in ways that we hardly notice. We seldom intend to hurt each other, but times of difficulty can leave us vulnerable, and even the smallest slights can leave bruises on our hearts that linger if left untreated. So it is healthy to check in with each other and take even the small hurts before God.
Dear God, my partner and I come to you with pain in our hearts from seasons of struggle. We ask you Lord, that you would heal our wounds and repair the damage that has built up over time. Give us the wisdom to confess our wrongs, and the grace to forgive each other.
Lord, fill us from your deep well of unconditional love. Let it permeate every part of our being and fill the space between us, so that our love may be strengthened in yours. Guide us as your perfect ways as we move forward surrounded by your love. Amen.
The love of God covers a multitude of wrongs.
