A Friend From Above


I prayed for you before we met
Not knowing who you'd be,
I asked the Lord to send me a friend
One chosen just for me.

I asked that they'd be Godly
With wisdom of His ways,
A friend to help and guide me
In the trouble of these days.

So often in life we need someone
To listen while we talk,
Someone who will not condemn or judge
But encourage us as we walk.

The narrow road we choose to follow
May sometimes make us stumble,
But to have a friend to catch our fall
Teaches us to be humble.

When I asked the Lord to send a friend
Though many came and went,
He gave me much more than I ever asked
For you are the friend He sent.
