Friendship Blessing:
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want;
I asked the Lord to bless you.
As you read this, BELIEVE that God has a blessing in store for you.
I asked the Lord to bless you, as I prayed for you today.
To guide you and protect you, as you go along your way.
His love is always with you, his promises are true,
and when we give him all our cares, you know he will see us through.
So when the road you're traveling on seems difficult at best,
just remember I'm here praying and God will do the rest.
