Every Friday from now until Christmas we will share one gift that can be given freely without a purchase and one that you can purchase. It’s all part of our Gifts of Friendship series inspired by studying The Friends of Jesus by Karen Kingsbury. Each gift we share will be presented in hopes that others will see and feel the love of Christ!

A friendship gift given freely:

Many gifts can be given freely and while a trip to the store may not be needed and wrapping paper is not necessary the value of these gifts far outweigh presents that require tissue paper!

This weeks gift is prayer.

Prayer is an invaluable gift. It’s priceless value far exceeds our wildest imagination! Blessings abound when knees bow down and cries lift up to Jesus. God has the ability and the desire to hear each request and to attend to every need.

We are currently learning to add scriptures into our prayers.

Almost any need we can imagine has a scripture that relates. Does your friend need strength? Pray for God’s power to be their strength.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Cor. 12:9

Does your friend need peace? Pray for God’s peace to consume their heart.

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:7

Consider your friends need and present it to the Lord. It’s the gift we can give today, tomorrow and each day after.

Simply give the gift of prayer.


Our pick for a purchased gift that shares Christ this week:

Gifts of scripture! If we are praying the scriptures why not fill our homes and workspaces with beautiful reminders of God’s word? Often people enter my home and ask, where did you get that? And my answer typically is Shannon Golden Designs!
