Gracious God, you are the author of relationship. Thank you for sending folks into my life. Help me nurture the bonds between us, so that I can speak freely about my relationship with you. Let them see Jesus in my actions and words. Keep me from doing anything that would damage my representation of Jesus. Let the acquaintances transition to friendships and trusted conversations. You bring people into my life for your purposes and glory. Keep my eyes open for the opportunities to cultivate. May your Word stay foremost in my brain for such times. May my relationship with you be above all others and be the example for all my others. Be glorified my how this all works, Father. I ask in the name and authority of Jesus, who tore the veil so that I could have direct access you, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant.” (Psalm 25: 14 ESV)
