Daily reading and prayer

Thursday 27 – Proverbs 27:9  Oil and perfume make the heart glad, and the sweetness of a friend comes from his earnest counsel.

Father God, as much as the fragrance of spring is upon us, and the sweet nectar rises on the cold air in the mornings. We thank you that we have friends we can turn to for comfort. Friendship is instantly recognisable – it’s a kind of loving, a touch of a hand, a smile, or just a word. All textures woven together rolled into one. Let our friendship be a pledge of our faith in you.

Amen.
