Day Eight: That She would be blessed with a close friend(s)
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! –Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
True friendship is a great blessing. Our wives need godly friendships. They need others ladies in their life that will lift them up when they fall and will be bold enough to “wound” if necessary (Proverbs 27:6). Today let’s pray for our wives to have a close friend (or friends) and that the Lord would use these friendships for his glory. Pray that he would protect their fellowship and use any relational difficulties to strengthen our wives. Let’s pray also for the close friends that our wives do have.
Lord, thank you for the friends that you have given to my wife. I pray Lord that you might cause these relationships to deepen even more. Help her to have a “friend who sticks closer than a brother”. I pray for my wife’s friends that you would bless them and keep them and enliven their passion for Jesus. I pray also that you would help my wife to be a great friend as well. May her friendships be used to further your kingdom in the world and in her heart. Amen.
