Well, I prayed fervently, and I asked the intercession of all "my" saints, but things did not change. In a way, it is a plus that there was no change in the situation about which I was praying. Still, I was hoping there would be a positive change.
Mainly, I was praying that the critical person involved would be malleable and would allow the grace and mercy and justice of the Holy Spirit to work in him. That seems not to have happened.
After my initial disappointment, I am once again hopeful. After all, my prayer is first and foremost that God's will be done. And I must trust that it has been so.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.
