Friends We've Never Met

but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24 

I realize many of you may have read this poem before.  I had read it a while ago.  It was sent to me by a gal that has become a dear friend though our internet connection.  Most of my friends are online friends and I felt it fitting to pass it on through the blog, as so many of you have come to be my friends through the years. So, to each of you …

A PRAYER

 Dear Lord:

 Every single evening

As I'm lying here in bed

This tiny little prayer

Keeps running through my head.

 

God bless my mom and dad,

And other family.

Keep them warm and safe from harm

For they're so close to me.

 

And God, there is one more thing

I wish that you could do.

Hope you don't mind me asking,

Bless my computer too.

 

Now I know that it's not normal

To bless a mother board,

But listen just a second

While I explain to you, Lord.

 

You see, that little metal box

Holds more than odds & ends

Inside those small compartments

Rest so many of my FRIENDS.

 

I know so much about them

By the kindness that they give

And this little scrap of metal

Takes me in to where they live.

 

By faith is how I know them

Much the same as you

We share in what life brings us

And from that our friendship grew.

 

Please, take an extra minute

From your duties up above

To bless those in my mailing list

That's filled with so much love!

 

Wherever else this prayer may reach

To each and every friend,

Bless each email inbox

And the person who hits send.

 

When you update your heavenly list

On your own CD-Rom

Remember each who've said this prayer

Sent up to God.com.

 

Amen.
