Do not forsake your friend and the friend of your father, and do not go to your brother’s house when disaster strikes you – better a neighbor nearby than a brother far away.
--Proverbs 27:10 (New International Version)
My Lord and my Friend, I pray that my sympathy may be sincere and comforting, and with a glad heart I may bring rejoicing to my friends. May I learn from you how I may be a permanent friend. Amen.
A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
--Proverbs 18:24 (New International Version)
My Father, may I know the delight of true friendship which is responsive and sincere. May I never feel so secure in myself that I will cease to want friends, or be so dependent on others that I will be continually seeking them. May I understand the value of having a solid friend and of being one. Amen.
"Through Christ and scriptures, you will find hope and redemption."
