God, Protect My Sister In Christ!

Lord, I’m afraid I’m going to lose my sister in Christ.
If I do, it will be all my fault.
I trusted her enough to share my confession.
I wanted her there.
I felt you wanted her there.
You know how I have had a hard time
communicating with truly godly women.
I don’t know how to be honest
without being too much for them.
I am what I am.
I am trying to become more of what you want.
Please, help us, Lord, not to let this
difference between us
make us grow apart.
I want to be a friend and a support to her too.
Thank you for dying for her.
Thank you for loving her
and for protecting her from people like me.
Praise you.

Inspiration: A Christian sister who asked to be a part of counseling me as a Christian single was very wise to pick up on things that I “thought” I was discreet and private about. As she asked me to be honest with her in private, she would be so heartbroken about things that it scared me that I was “too inappropriate” to be a Christian. I thought I would surely lose her friendship. She let me know she was broken “for” me, not “because of” me. She was a very dear sister in Christ. The Lord used her greatly in my life.
