  1. What if the one you are angry at, the one who you are having a hard time or can’t forgive is God?

      Hi Dannie, my suggestion is if you’re angry with God to talk to him about it. Although you could talk to other people about how you feel regarding God, some might not be able to handle it or understand. But, I believe God is big enough to be able to take everything that we bring to him. I hope that helps.

      1. Oh, I’ve told him. Many times.

  2. Hi Rachel, This is something I need to work on, praying for those who are difficult or angry with me or even disagree. I have had to let go of some things and I hope the Lord will just heal old wounds.

      Hi Rebecca. Hope you’ve joined the Tough Love Prayer Challenge. It will give you some steps to work through in prayer.

  3. Hi Rachel,

    My relationship with my family has been difficult since the beginning of time. I continue to pray about it, however, removing myself from it all together is what I had to do for my own peace of mind and emotional health. 2 Timothy 2:24 tells me to avoid strife at all cost.

      Yvonne, it is so hard to live with a long term difficult relationship, especially when it is one’s own family. I believe you are doing the right thing removing yourself so you can be emotionally healthier. I hope you will find greater peace as you pray through the Tough Love Prayer Challenge.

  4. My relationship with my oldest sister is very strained. I don’t think she likes me very much. She talks about me and my husband behind our backs. She tried to throw me out of my mother’s house when she passed away. I don’t want to continue a relationship with her because I think it is unhealthy. I do want some inner peace though.

      Jamie, I hope through the Tough Love Prayer Challenge you will find the inner peace you so desire. We are promised peace when we bring our anxiety to God. “Do not be anxious… pray” says Philippians 4:6-7, “then the peace of God… will guard your hearts.” Pray and keep God to His promise of giving you peace.

  5. “When we turn to prayer our attention becomes more about God and less about us.” So, so good and true. Thanks, Rachel, for pointing our eyes back to Jesus and off of ourselves.

      And starting our prayers by focusing on God’s greatness is a good way to do this, isn’t it? Thanks, Lisa

  6. Beautiful truths.
    The amazing reality is that God *does* act when we pray, and things *do* change. Inside us, and in circumstances/relationships as well.

      Thank you Susan for your positive and uplifting comment. Yes, God does act and things change, we change and I have experienced the other people changing, too.
