Daily Prayer Guide

They help every one his neighbor; and every one saith to his brother, Be of good courage.
~ Isa 41:6

Who cares for the burden, the night, and the rain,  
And the long, steep, lonesome road,  
When at last through the darkness a light shines plain,  
When a voice calls “Hail,” and a friend draws rein,  
With an arm for the stubborn load?  
  
For life is the chance of a friend or two  
This side of the journey’s goal.  
Though the world be a desert the long night through,  
Yet the gay flowers bloom and the sky shows blue  
When a soul salutes a soul.
 Unknown

In all misfortune the greatest consolation is a sympathizing friend.
– Cervantes

Prayer

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.
