#674 - I Have a New Friend
Volume 2 - Prayers to Love Our Neighbor
Dear Father, I thank You for a new friend in my life. Our paths have crossed. Introductions have been made. We are now venturing into familiarity. I'm putting on my best performance. I want to make a good impression. However, at some point, this person will see the flaws in me. At some point, I will see the flaws in them. We will both notice our respective insecurities, scars, hurts, and brokenness. Enthusiasm may dwindle. Miscommunication and misunderstandings may begin to invade our friendship. Father, I want to be my own god while at the same time the other person wants to be their own god. That is a recipe for conflict; two little gods competing for attention and dominance. Father, the only chance for friends to have a wonderful relationship is when both have surrendered their lives to You. When both people put You first, there will be no friction over whose will is going to win in the end. Father, surrendering to You is not just about my vertical relationship with You. It's also about my horizontal relationship with others. Help me surrender to You this very day and may my relationships may be blessed because of that. Amen.
