Dear Lord,
Please help me understand why people that are supposed to love us feel the need to needlessly cause us trouble.
Please help fill that void in their own lives so that they don’t feel the need to try to cause havoc in others’ lives.
Thank you for all that is good and right in this world,
and please continue to give us more of it.
Continue to steer me in the right direction and bring me closer to you.
Forgive my sins and the sins of others.  We aren’t perfect in our actions, but we don’t wish to spend an eternity in hell.
