For Friends

Almighty, everlasting God, have mercy on Thy servants our friends. Keep
them continually under Thy protection, and direct them according to Thy
gracious favour in the way of everlasting salvation; that they may
desire such things as please Thee, and with all their strength perform
the same. And forasmuch as they trust in Thy mercy, vouchsafe, O Lord,
graciously to assist them with Thy heavenly help, that they may ever
diligently serve Thee, and by no temptations be separated from Thee;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

“Thomas à Kempis
