“In everything gives thanks, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

– 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Seek God together

Take turns naming your friends and ask God to bless them. Then close with this prayer:

Dear God,
Thank you for all the good gifts you’ve given us, including our friends. Bless them all, we pray. Please give us the love we need to be good friends too. And most of all we thank You Lord Jesus, for being the most awesome Friend of all. You gave Your life for us and You rose again. Your love and faithfulness are beyond compare. Thank you for always being there. Help us to love You with all our hearts. 

In Jesus’s name,
Amen
