Lord, there are times when I am so down, and then a friend blesses me, I think of you. It’s because of you and the love that you give me that I want to reach out to others. Thank you for blessing my life with friends. I often make mistakes on the path of life, losing sight of the trail and calling out for you. Thank you for finding me, for putting my feet back on the path and leading me home. To you, oh God, be the glory. Amen.
