Scripture for the day is Proverbs 17:17

A friend loves at all times,
    and kinsfolk are born to share adversity.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father, we thank you for our families and friends who walked with us through the dark valleys. But most of all we thank you for Jesus, the one who truly “sticketh closer than a brother” (18:24) for he alone can walk with us through death’s door into the light he has won for us. Amen.
