A Prayer for Friends

Be with my friends today
both near and far away
Give them a day of peace
help them in every way.
Help us Lord to understand
just what it will take
To change our lives for the better
and a better life make.

The choices are ours to make
neither easy or too hard
For You are always with us
and will always guard.
When we are weak and lonely
or just sad and blue
You send Your Love on Angel's wings
to always help us through.

So today my friend, look for Him
He will show you the way
That will lead to life everlasting
He formed you from His clay.
He loves you more than I can say
so always look to Him
He will reward you greatly
His light within will never dim.

Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy;
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
-Marcel Proust
