Many times I have failed to be present with you, to listen to your story. I have jumped to conclusions and I have judged you from my own background and experiences. I have tried to fix things for you and I have undermined your self confidence. I’m sorry. I truly want to listen and accept you where you are and trust you and God with your future. You will have setbacks. You will have successes. You will succeed and you will fail. Get up. Plan your day. Seek help. Ask God what you should do next. Spend time with Him in prayer. I am praying for you. I will listen to your story without judgement. I will help when you ask.
Jesus, Son of the living God, help us as we communicate with each other to listen and to see each other as you see us. Amen.
