Listening to people's problems and secrets can place a heavy load of burden on yourself.
It is something of a supernatural feat to become a counselor. I feel burdened to the point of puking.
Worst still, having to face and greet as if nothing had happened with the people whose dark evil doings or pass doings you already know is equally tormenting. Forgiveness is simple when humility and love is present. The memory of it is hard to erase, if not at all possible without a serious concussion.
Lord, I pray for forgiveness for judging and harbouring prejudice. I ask for your Holy Spirit to comfort me and relief me from this burden. Grant me the discernment to make the right decisions and to trust the right person. Give me wisdom to handle all situations well. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
With this prayer, I can now say..."it is well with my soul.."
