Today is Friday, November 19th, 2021; Karen's Korner #4575

A friend was given "365 Days of Prayer for Women" after her sister passed away. Several of us liked the prayers and purchased books for ourselves.

You can tell I like it and will enjoy sharing some of prayers with korner readers now and then. This one is from November 17:

Friend of God

"One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother."

~ Proverbs 18:24 NIV

"Lord, Father, God, Savior, of all the names I have for you, Friend surprises me the most. Friendship is completely voluntary, entirely reciprocal. I just can't believe you see me this way----that I bring value to the relationship. I can't get over the fact that you chose me-----that you choose me every day. I am a friend of God! This means you listen to my troubles, you hurt when I hurt, and you are happy in my joy. Even more astonishing, it means I get to listen to you: to discern what you love and what you hate, and to feel alongside you. I get to be your friend.

Do you know that you are a friend of God?"
