A friend loves at all times, and a sibling is born for time of adversity. – Prov. 17:17

Dear God-

I thank you for my friends.

The ones who I have known for decades are supporting beams in my life.

The ones who are new are vegetables in my garden, bringing color and nutrients to my life.

The ones who are closer to me than my relatives are the family of my heart.

Some are grieving. Some are searching. Some are tired. Some rejoice.

Bless my friends, Gracious Mother of All, and bring them into your peace.

Help me to be a better friend and a sister in times of adversity.
