GOD, I am angry, frustrated, and sad. At the root of these bitter feelings, I feel hurt. Please help me to let go of the painful memories – the fights, the jealousy, the unkind words, the scorn I feel from other people. Take my pain and transform it for good.
Help me to see that those who hurt me are hurting too. Teach me to be more understanding, to offer them the love I need so much. Remind me that you see all of us as worthy of love and forgiveness.
Give me your peace, God. Fill me with your strength and your love so that I might be an instrument of your peace.
