The Bible talks a lot about friendship. Proverbs 27 talks about the power that Godly friendships have to make us better people. Good friends sharpen us and make us better people. I don’t know about you but I want my children to have Proverbs 27:17 type friends!
Have you prayed for your children’s current and future friends recently?
It goes without saying that our children’s friends will have an influence on our children’s lives. Proverbs 13:20 talk about how we become like those we are around. When we hang around the wise, we get wiser. When we hang around fools, we get in trouble!
Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble. Proverbs 13:20 NLT
Let’s be reminded today to frequently lift up our children’s current and future friends in prayer. Pray for those God-knit friendships, maybe before they are even formed!
Pray it! Lord, today I lift up my children’s current and future friends. I desire that my children have friends that not only bring them great joy and fellowship, but also strengthen their relationship with You and sharpen them into the person you created them to be. Lord, touch the heart of my children’s future friends. May they know You and Your voice, and endeavor to please you in all things. Strengthen, grace, and anoint these future friends to be all that you have called them to be. Give my children wisdom and direction when they choose their friends. Thank-you for sending God-knit friendships to my children. I love you, Lord. Amen.
