Dear Lord Jesus, you say in your word that those who labor and are heavy-laden should come to you and you give them rest. Jesus, I come to you with this burden that I’ve been carrying for a long time. There are so many unresolved issues in our family, but no one is willing to resolve them. We are all pretending that everything is fine, but in reality, we are no longer close the way we used to be as a family. Bring healing into our hearts. Let every hurt, pain and bad memories be washed away with your blood. Cleanse us from resentment and bitterness and help us to love one another just the way you love us. We pray this trusting and believing in your holy name, Amen.
