Father God, your word says that we have a friend that sticks closer than any brother, who knows our weaknesses and pain and is able to empathise with us when we are hurting and in need of comfort. Thank you that you are there with Gebre's dear friend, with him through this testing time. Thank you that you do not allow us to be tested beyond that with which we can cope. Your word says that the testing of our faith produces something in us, it's not wasted, nothing is wasted, not even the bad times we go through. It's all woven together and works together for our good when we love you and are called for your purpose.
Thank you that you never leave us, even when it feels like we are all alone.
In Jesus, name above all names, amen.
