A beautiful thought today in Ed M.’s devotional, from 1 Samuel 23.16, along with this prayer.

Lord God, everyone has moments of despair. When life closes in on me, send a friend. When life closes in on someone else, send me. In Jesus, the greatest friend of all, Amen.

Focus question: When despair approaches, do you tend to shut yourself off from others, or ask God to send a friend? Are you a friend to those in despair?

What say you?
