A Prayer for True Friendship

Jesus, loving companion of Your children,

You have extended Your friendship to all.

You opened Your arms without discrimination,

offering Your warmth to those seeking comfort.

Endow us with the virtue of such a friendship,

to know, love and trust all on an equal basis;

And to be compassionate towards the destitute.

Fashion my heart to reflect Your qualities.

Jesus, You showed us the way to true friendship:

Blessed is Your amazing and warm Person!

Amen.
