- Some Biblical Connections
I have hurt other people.
I see that now with clarity.
Help me to make a list of all those I have harmed.
And help me also to become willing to make amends to each of these people.
I know that some willingness will be easier than others.
I know that there may be some people to whom I can’t imagine making amends.
When willingness seems impossible
help me to remember that I am not being asked to make amends under my own power.
That kind of self-reliance has never worked out very well for me.
Remind me that I need only be willing.
The rest of what is needed will have to come from you, God.
I will need your help.
