Topic: Oh! My Friends! Lord, Expose Them
Scripture: Proverbs 18
Loyalty and honour are hallmarks of great friends. A loyal friend will stand by you and stand with you no matter the risk to his/her own life and fortune. Oh, today’s scripture Vs. 24 is so on-point: “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” No wonder Andy Hickton quipped: “Never turn your back on your friends in time of need because that’s when they need your loving support.”
As I think about today’s scripture, I am reminded of the words of Danlren Zar, “Real friends stick by you through the rough times as well as the good times. They will walk through the murky waters of trouble to the other side with you holding your hand. Those that are not real friends will tell you they will be there when you get back.”
Be a true friend from this second quarter of 2021. Love them through thick and thin. Be bold to tell your friend(s) the truth even if it sounds bitter and painful. When you honour your friends with loyalty, God will honour you with strength and grace. Pray for your friends/helpers today!
1. Take Song 1: My faith looks up…
2. Pray over today’s word as it has ministered to you.
3. Father, bless me and surround me with loyal and faithful friends; friends that will see the treasures that You have deposited in me and help me to become all that You have destined for me to become.
Lord, expose every unfriendly friend from this day in Jesus name (Pray it for 5 days and 5 nights and watch out for what God will do). Be sensitive! The Lord will expose their true identities.
Father, use me! Help me to be a true and sincere friend to the people that You have surrounded me with.
I decree: From this day, my haters shall fight themselves and expose themselves in Jesus name (Pray it for 2 days).
Pray about today as led now. Pray pages 7-9 prayers.
