Prayer Of Gratitude For A Special Friend

Thank You Lord for blessing me with such treasured friend and for the mutual joy and friendship we share together. What a wonderful privilege it is to share our good times together and to be there for each other, when sorrow or difficulties invades our lives.
 
Thank You for the wonderful love, care and encouragement we share with each other.. and I praise and thank You Father that You are a relational God Who knows the importance of close friendships and special intimate relationships - which so enrich our lives, lifts our hearts and refreshes our spirits.
 
I pray You would draw close to us both; strengthen us in the inner man so that together we may grow in grace and in a knowledge of You. This I ask in Jesus name,
 
Amen
