A Prayer For Godly Friendships

“Jesus, I consider the character traits that make a healthy friendship.  Loyalty, compassion, kindness, honesty, patience, forgiveness and a listening ear are just a few of the qualities that are evident in a good friendship.  There are so many stories in the Gospels where these qualities are easily seen in the friendships You had with the disciples and others.  May the foundation of my friendships be based on godly traits as I come alongside my friends to encourage, challenge, inspire, and stimulate them toward good works in Your name, Jesus.  It is in Your name that we pray.  Amen.”
