Greater Friendship

This came to me in a time of praying for a dear friend:

Greater friends don’t simply take up your cause.

Greater friends take up the cause of Christ in you.

In other words, my greater prayer is not simply for the resolution of your circumstance. My greater prayer is that Christ would have his way with you, that He would form you through your trial, that He have the full measure of His purpose for you, in your difficulty, achieved.
