121 Days of Prayer

The purposes of this prayer are: Friendship/Fellowship and Lovingkindness.

Loving God, when David received news that his friend Jonathan and King Saul died in battle, he wrote a lament that was to be taught to the people that included these lines: “Saul and Jonathan, beloved and lovely! In life and in death they were not divided; they were swifter than eagles; they were stronger than lions. You daughters of Israel, weep over Saul, who clothed you luxuriously in scarlet, who put ornaments of gold on your apparel. How the mighty have fallen in the midst of the battle! Jonathan lies slain on your high places. I am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan; very pleasant have you been to me; your love to me was extraordinary, surpassing the love of women. How the mighty have fallen, and the weapons of war perished!” 2 Samuel 1:23–27 (ESV). Lord, we pray for close friendships such as David and Jonathan had. Amen.
