when a friend is in trouble – June 26

6.26.2015

when a friend is in

trouble, someone

should callnot just

send a check.

 

Lord you placed us

here to be your face

your voice your

comfort your person

your presence

for each other

 

help us to connect

rather than run,

to move closer

rather than further.

 

reach through our

distancing and

forgive us for the

limits of our weary

hearts.

 

when a friend is in

trouble, help us to

call, and not just

send a check.
