Dear lord,

We will travel our lives with friendship in our hearts.

It is there for us in every situation.

Jesus is our guide light to friendship and the key to friends.

Lord, help us to have friendship because sometimes it is what we desperately need.

Friendship is a part of us.



Dear Lord,

Thank you for friends that help us through our lives.

And for people who can see what we think.

Thank you for people who sit by our side when we are hurt.

Thank you for family.

Dear Lord

Thank you for presents and the happiness that they bring at Christmas time and for having a roof over our heads. Also thank you for the birth of baby Jesus.
