Heavenly Father, how gracious You are to bring into my life my many precious friends - all of which have become so special to me in their own individual and unique way.
I feel so blessed to be surrounded with so many dear people that I love and care for, and for the knowledge that they also love and care for me too – and thank You for the support that I have so often received from different ones , during those times of difficulty and pain.
Thank You also for the valuable lessons that I have learned through… some of which have been very difficult, and yet I have been have enabled through their loving support and encouragement to grow spiritually and emotionally – and gain wisdom and insight in so many important ways.
Help me to be the sort of friend that is always there for others. An ear to listen, a hand to help and a heart to comfort – and help me to grow in grace and in a knowledge of our Saviour, Lord Jesus, so that I me be His hand, His ear, His heart and His comfort to the many precious people that You have place in my life, in Jesus name I pray,
Loving Father, thank You that in Christ I have a friend that sticks closer than a brother. Help me to reflect You in all I do, so that I show forth the grace of Jesus to all I meet, and may my life be that sweet-smelling savour to others and to You, as I abide in Christ, in Jesus name I pray. AMEN.
Blessed Lord and Father, what wonderful truths are contained within Your Word. I pray that I may learn to keep the eyes of my heart fixed upon Christ and to daily search the scriptures more faithfully, so that I may learn more of You and increasingly reflect the Lord Jesus. I pray that my life may be a mirror-image of Him, through Whom His grace may flow out to others, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
