The Life of Mary (8): Friendship

I treasure the privilege of being with a friend during one of life’s critical moments.

My Prayer:

For each of my precious friends, I give thanks. For the grace of being present there when needed, I also pray.

Scriptural Touchstones:

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.
