Prayers by D. White
Cup Half Full: Molested as a Minor
1. Forgiveness A
Lord, forgive church people for not ministering to those who are
hurt. Church people can stop only what they know about, and only what they
are interested in knowing about. Now that church people know there is
wrongdoing in worship, wrongdoing in ministry, instead of a witch-hunt,
let there be change. Let there be the change of disciplining the sinner in
such a way that the sin cannot continue. If that means allowing children
no alone time with a church leader, so be it. If that means calling the
police and pressing charges, so be it. If that means ending
the career of anyone to stop his or her sin, so be it. Changing our
attitude of trust so that church people all are held accountable will end
the ease some people have in taking advantage of children. We want grace,
and we want to practice grace, but not at the expense of the sinner being
mired in sin, and the innocents being trampled. We reject fatalism, and
the possibility of the sin being a lesson to be endured.
Hope You were encouraged.
Please come back anytime.
