Heavenly Father, I thank You for the wonderful Christian friends that You have brought into my life, each one so precious to You and each one who has brought such joy and encouragement into my life.
Father, I thank You for the gifts and talents that each has been endowed with and the way that each one has brought something new and unique into my life. I ask Your special blessing upon each one, and pray that together we may grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, as we fellowship together around Your Word and encourage each other in the trials and difficulties that we are all facing at this time.
Breathe Your love and grace into the heart of each one and draw us ever closer to each other and to You. Help us to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. In Jesus' name I pray,
