They help every one his neighbor; and every one saith to his brother, Be of good courage. – Isa 41:6
In all misfortune the greatest consolation is a sympathizing friend.
Loving Father, may I lay hold upon the highest standards of friendship and so be qualified to be a friend. May those who call and lean on me feel secure in my support. May none ever be ashamed to call me friend. Grant that those whom I love may keep faith with me. Amen.
