God, I Apologize

God, I apologize.
I owe you a great deal more than that.
I am sorry I came between You and one of Your children.
I am so sorry to have placed doubts on Your Son.
I am sorry to have given him such a weaker vision of a true Christian,
Especially when he thinks of me as being such a strong one.
I am sorry that I have caused damage where You had placed hope and love.
I pray for Your healing where I may have caused great harm.
I pray for You and he to grow… and stronger,
Every aching moment of his day and night.
I pray that You two would have the relationship
That You have always wanted with him,
And pray that he would desire the same.
I know he loves You, God.
Please give him credit for that.
He’s just trying to make it in a sinful and human body
While holding on to Christians he trusts,
That let him down and come between You two.
Christians like me.
In Jesus name I pray… Amen!
