Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of one’s friend springs from his earnest counsel. 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. (Prov 27:9-10 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, thank You for genuine and authentic friends. I want to celebrate them along with You because they are gifts from You. I am grateful for their counsel, support, comfort, encouragement, and love. Help me be a friend as well, to be available for them and help them however I am able and enabled by You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
