A Prayer For My Friend

Dear God, With this prayer
I call to mind my friends.
I ask for Your blessings on them.
May angels fill their nights
And bless their days.

May they find joy and peace and harmony.
May I be a source of happiness in their lives.
May our bond be strong and based on truth.

May they always know that
In me, they have support.
May I live a life that
Lives up to this prayer.
Thank you God.
