Heavenly Father, when I am living each day of the blessed life You have given me, I am often overwhelmed by feelings of resentment. These bitter feelings are as close to me as the clothes I wear. Resentment separates me from my spouse and others who need my mindful, loving presence. God, in Your mercy, please help me to give up my resentments and heal through your generous grace. In that way, may I love my spouse and others more deeply and be more present to serve them in the glory of Your name. Amen
