Prayer Devotion: Lord, Help Me Be A Good Friend

by | Feb 5, 2016 | DEVOTIONS

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted an honest prayer here. If this prayer is your desire also, offer it with me to our God and Friend.

Lord, You call me a friend. But can You call me a good friend? Help me a be a good friend to You, God. I don’t want to be the kind of friend that only comes to You when things are going well, or the kind of friend that only calls on You when things are going badly.
I want to be the kind of friend that comes just to be with You, because I love everything about You, and want to know You more.
I don’t want to be the kind of friend that gets so busy and consumed with my life that I forget to invite You into every part. I don’t want You to be an afterthought. I want You to be at the forefront of all my thoughts.
You are an ever-present help. Please help me to not take You for granted. I don’t want to be the kind of friend that comes to You with all my problems expecting You to fix them, or all my wants expecting you to fulfill them, without being the kind of friend that comes ready to hear Your heart’s desire.
I don’t want to just be a taker kind of friend, Lord. I want to be the giver kind. I want to be the kind of friend You are to me.
Go Deeper: John 15:15, Philippians 3:10, Psalm 46:1, Proverbs 3:5-6.
