#464 - I Was Betrayed
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
Dear Father, I shared something in confidence with someone and they told it to someone else. Someone broke a promise. Someone I looked up to is entirely different than who I thought they were. I gave someone my heart and they gave their heart to someone else. I heard that someone I trusted said something unkind about me behind my back. Father, I expected someone's character to be more than they could deliver. That may not be their fault. I may have presumed their preparedness to be faithful when they simply were not prepared to be so. Perhaps they are in a crisis and cannot manage, along with everything else, fulfilling the expectations I put on them. Perhaps they are not in a place in their spiritual and emotional growth where they can be faithful. Perhaps they had a moment of weakness and what occurred happened when they "snapped". Perhaps I ignored the evidence that they were not prepared to be loyal to me. I didn't want to believe it. Perhaps I was needy and it was causing the other person increasing stress. Perhaps I assumed a level of relationship and commitment with this person that they hadn't yet decided they wanted with me. Father, help me to take the time to think before I react to an individual's betrayal. Help me to understand this person's point of view instead of simply reacting emotionally. Father, if they did do me a wrong, please forgive them and help me to forgive them as well. Amen.
