Daily reading and prayer

Friday 28 – Proverbs 18:24  A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Lord God you are our friend. We cry out to you and you answer us. We hold out our hands to you and you hold us fast and close. Grant us love for each other binding us together with cords strong and true. Honour all our friendships by blessing them with your spirit, for the sake of your son Jesus Christ our Lord.
