I thank you Father for another day to give you praise, glory and honor. I thank you for another day to experience love through the precious gift of friendship.
I am thankful for my friends who have been with and weathered the storm with me! They have been the reality of Proverbs 18:24, which reads "A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother"
I am thankful for my friends because we encourage and build each other up, making Proverbs 27:17 our reality, "Just as iron sharpens iron, friends sharpen the minds of each other".
I am thankful for the friends in my life because it means I am not alone making Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 my reality "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work; If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!".
So today Papa, I am thankful for the gift of friendship. I am thankful for the true friends that are in my life. I am thankful for their presence as it gives us an opportunity to build each other up.
Father, I pray that my basket of thanksgiving and praise for friendship is acceptable and sweet smelling in your presence. Be glorified, honored and praised. In the mighty name of Jesus I praise, Thanks and Pray. Amen.
