    Not to long ago, about a month I broke my best friends trust in me, her and I were fighting and I through anger I said somethings things I should not have said among being disrespectful and showing a disloyalty. I at that moment was not the friend I should have been. Her and I have been best friends for 27 years and we've been very close. For the last two years we started a small Production Company and have Produced our material into videos and a web series. One
    of the things I said out of anger was that the web project was now mine and not her's bad move! I also was not compassionate to some things she was going through with a guy that's been stalking her, I really messed up. Since then she has cut me off completely, she would not respond to my text's, Phone calls or e-mails we have not talked since. She went as far as post on her Facebook that the friendship and our Partnership (Production Co.) is dissolved, in further she UN-friended me and blocked me from FB. It was another friend who called me to find out what happened and to tell me about her posts. I actually had to create a new FB account to get back onto her FB Page. I had left her messages to call me but she has not. just in this past week she has only responded to my posts on her page with just the like button. Last night I heard from her the first time in a month she text me that she got my letter, In the letter I have asked for her forgiveness and I apologized and told her that this will never happen again and that I would like the chance to earn back her trust and friendship. She like myself is a Christian, she's also very, very sensitive. In her text she said that she will talk to God about it and that I have to leave it to God, which I am, but I am also broken and shattered that I hurt her. I really want to make this right. I have prayed to God which when I pray I like to write my prayers first and then pray to God, you can read my prayer below. I ask everyone to pray for my friend and I for God to restore us and this friendship. I care for her deeply and don't want to lose her, I can't imagine going through life with out her in it. Thank You for reading and for your Prayers and support.

    MY PRAYER TO GOD:
    Dear God, Lord Jesus, I am praying hard to you for the restoration of my friendship with Shea which was damaged due destroying her trust in me and for being disloyal, disrespectful and not being the friend I should have been. I said somethings out of anger that crossed the line and I am sorry and I ask you Lord to please forgive me of what I did to my friend. I am shattered and heart broken because of this. So far the loss of my friend who I deeply love and care about makes me feel lost and sick. Please God, only you can break down the wall that separates me from my friend and I also fear The devil is having his way by continuing to put a wedge between us and keep us apart because of the work we do in you. Our friendship took many years to build and a special bond was made based on faith, trust and loyalty which I admit I damaged through thoughtless human error. I put this in your hands Lord for resolution. Only you can mend our broken friendship, I pray that you will touch her heart and spirit and that it will be renewed and restored soon. The Friendship I had was a gift that came from you God, I ask you please for it back and I promise I will never take it or her for granted again. You know my heart and you know I am sincere, I need you, ask you to show her this. I am willing to make changes to myself to be better, for her, for the friendship and to wright my wrongs I pray in Jesus name, AMEN.

    I feel for you, Robert Wood. A very close friend of mine for 40+ years and I had a split over the 2012 election and we did not talk for two years. Thankfully, we finally patched things up. I will pray for you.

    You can't right your wrongs any more than you can turn back time. You don't have to ask God to forgive, because He already did when He died on the cross. Now, you have to forgive yourself based on that and, not based on whether or not she forgive you because her love is not perfect. don't lose sight of your blessed hope. I hope you two work things out

    Father, I pray that You lead Robert in the way he should go regarding this relationship, and after he has done everything needed, enable Him to put it in Your hands and trust You to work according to Your will. Let him receive Your forgiveness, and let him forgive himself. May He find the most precious relationship of his life to be You and use this time to grow deeper in his walk of faith.

    A friendship does take many years to build and will take time (perhaps much time) to rebuild once broken. Forgiveness is a gift, but trust must be earned through time and trustworthy behavior. Handle with care, and be grateful to God for every step of progress.

    Father, I know I am not to judge, and this is even hard to discern. Once the toothpaste comes out of the tube, it would be impossible (?) to put it back, and this one may have crossed the line. I pray this friend is not an idol. I pray for restoration, for I know You would have that, but I pray that it is done in the right way and for the right reasons, and with the right priorities in place. I pray Your blessings upon both parties, and that whether the friendship is restored or not, both will seek to draw closer to You, and find great satisfaction in You, and guidance from You in this situation. Amen.

    Thank You Greg for your Prayer it is appreciate it, I can however tell you that my friend is not an idol but she is a person that's been in my life for a long time and even though it's a deep best friendship it is like any relationship in one's life and when there are problems as in all relationships it is only natural to want to work it out and try to repair any damages because the person, the relationship is worth it. Just like a marriage you have problems you do all you can to restore and to renew because you care that being so does not make it an idol, I do not worship my friend but I do honor her and I honor the relationship. If restoration is not possible I can let her go. Yes, I did cross the line and as you stated, "once the toothpaste comes out you can't put it back in" and you are right we human's can't but God can. God can fully restore any relationship right back to the way it was. When Jesus restored the Gospel He did not make it a NEW Gospel He restored the same Gospel with out change, the original one. God through Jesus can restore a relationship by putting back what was in its original form. " The Lord says I will give you back what you lost" Joel 2:25

    Praying that you do honor your former friend, and that you respect your former friend's wishes and seek God's guidance in all of this. Praying that His will is done.
