Loving Lord of heaven and earth, we thank You for the benefits and encouragement we gain from the friends You place in our lives and the relationships that we are able to develop during our earthly walk.
I thank You for the good friends and different relationships that I enjoy today, and for the joys that each one brings in their own special and unique way.
May I never take my friends for granted or become indifferent in the relationships I have built up over the years, but rather may I increasingly value each of the people that You have placed in my life. May we build up and strengthen each other in the bonds of love and peace which we have in Jesus.
May each of my relationships become increasingly fruitful, and may they be anchored on a firm foundation of godly love and genuine trust. Bless all my friends, and may each of my relationships become increasingly fruitful, to Your praise and glory. This I ask in Jesus' name,
