She’s been told something so horrible to hear.
She’s been informed of needless information.
Will it be too much to remain friends?
Will it damage our good and godly relation?
I hated having to tell her what I did.
I was trying to obey you with open confession.
Will she think less of me and avoid me?
Can she bear the news of my transgression?
I pray that she doesn’t hold it against me, Lord.
I think so dearly of her.
If I could take away my ugly past, I would.
You of all people know it’s not what I would prefer.
Please help her to forgive me, Lord.
Don’t let her judge me by this deed.
I want to show her and you I’m sorry.
For mercy, I plead.
I pray for her, Lord.
As she has a way of thinking that I do not know.
Help us to grow in sisterhood.
Help us both to let go.
