The LORD restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the LORD increased all that Job had twofold. – Job 42:10 NASB
Job prayed for his friends even though they had showed him their true colors. That’s a true friend, Lord. And when he did this, You blessed him giving him twice as much as he had before. That’s the true power of forgiveness. You know the relationships I have with my friends. Sometimes it’s hard to overlook the hurtful things they say and do. Help me to be more like Job—to learn to turn the other cheek and actually serve friends who disappoint me. I ask for that kind of compassion and dedication to my friends, Lord.
