Reconciliation

All things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. – 2 Corinthians 5:18 NKJV

Father, my family desperately needs Your help. I can’t remember now where it started, but one disagreement turned into more. Soon it became a swirling whirlpool of hurt and misunderstanding. I ask that You would put out the raging fires of anger and resentment and help us broker a plan for peace that includes apologies spoken, forgiveness given, and relationships healed. Thank You even now for a new era of love and understanding in our family. Amen.
