I treasure the privilege of being with a friend during one of life’s critical moments.
For each of my precious friends, I give thanks. For the grace of being present there when needed, I also pray.
In those days Mary set out and went with haste to a Judean town in the hill country, where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. Luke 1:39-40 (NRSV)
Invitation To Pray:
Which of your friends needs you today? What prayers for them are emerging in your body, mind, heart, and imagination? Pray them now.
Mary and Elizabeth as they greet each other in the Life of the Virgin Window (1217-1220) in the south choir aisle at the Chartres Cathedral in France. This scene is on the right of the fifth row from the bottom.
