Dear Lord, I want to thank you for my friends. I can share my interests with them with no fear or worry. I can talk to them about anything, and I know they will listen, whether it will be a serious conversation, a helpful suggestion or playful teasing. They’re faithful, they’re there to back me up and support me when needed. They are fun and give me moments marked with laughter and excitement. So thank you, God, for giving me these dear friends of mine. Amen.
