Prayer For August 4th

August 4, 2015

 

friendship prayer

Hello, Friends! Here is the prayer for today…

Dear Lord,

We thank you for the gift of friendship…we thank you for the wonderful people you bring into our lives…we thank you for those who make us laugh…for those who share our joys and sorrows and who lend a listening ear…for friends who pray for us,  encourage us and love us. Please bless our friends, Lord and make your face to shine upon them.

You knew before we were born, who would be our friends…you orchestrated events in our lives knowing who we would need to be our friends at every stage of our journey…we are thankful most of all, Lord, because you call us friend…your Word says that there is no greater love, than to lay down your life for your friends and you did that for us…how grateful we are for your amazing love and grace that you lavish on us…

Lord, please help us to love well…help us to treat others the way we want to be treated…help us to represent you well in our relationships…may your love pour forth from us…it’s said they will know we are Christians by our love…may we show your love in every relationship we have…you didn’t wait for others to show love to you first, you gave it away freely expecting nothing in return… help us to love everyone with your love, including those who are difficult…remind us to pray not only for our friends, and loved ones, but for our enemies as well…may we be concerned about a person’s spiritual well-being before anything else…help us to love as you love and forgive as you forgive…help us to see others through your eyes and  may we  be known for the type of kindness and compassion that you show to each of us…

May we be a good friend to you as well, Lord…we want to know you better, Lord…you long to be intimately acquainted with each of us…we don’t want to take you for granted…we want to make you the priority in our lives… we don’t want our love for you to grow cold or stagnant…we don’t want to neglect you in any way… we want to grow closer to you every day… we want you to be glorified in our lives…in our comings and are goings…in our relationships…in the things we say and do…in the way we think and the way we serve you…

Thank you for wanting only the best for us…thank you for being a friend that sticks closer than anyone else… you are  there for us in good times and bad…grieving with us and rejoicing with us…how excited we are to think about what it will be like to spend eternity with you…to hear you laugh as you did with your disciples…to share a meal with you at your banquet table…to feel the joy and peace that will come from being in your presence…we love you Lord and with gratitude and praise, we give you this day and all that’s in it. Amen

Blessings be upon you my friends!

In His love,

Debbie
