Wisdom in Choosing Friends
Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with scoffers. But they delight in doing everything the Lord wants; day and night they think about his law. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season without fail. Their leaves never wither, and in all they do, they prosper. (Psalm 1:1 – 3 NLT)
Wise heavenly Father, I pray for my child to live in the joy of wise counsel. May my child delight in doing everything you want Lord; day and night may he/she think about your law. Then he/she will be like a tree planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season without fail, not withering but prospering in all he does. O Father, may he/she choose to walk with the wise rather than foolish, godless companions. Guide him/her to relationships that draw him/her closer to you. I pray that his/her heart will be attracted to those who love you and not to those who may be popular or outwardly attractive but despise the things you love. Lead my son/daughter to seek you with a pure heart that delights in your commands, so that he will prosper. In Jesus’ name, amen.
