A Prayer for Friends

On Sunday, we discussed the importance of resurrection friends who love Jesus. Australian poet Michael Leunig offers a prayer for friends for the week:

“We give thanks for our friends
Our dear friends.
We anger each other
We fail each other
We share this sad earth, this tender life,
This precious time.
Such richness. Such wildness.
Together we are blown about.
Together we are dragged along.
All this delight.
All this suffering.
All this forgiving life.
We hold it together. Amen.”
