May Memory Verse: “Friends love all the time, and kinsfolk are born for times of trouble.” (1 Samuel 18:1-5; 20:1-42)
May 26: Prayerful Friends: Peter had been preaching in Lydda. Eleven miles northwest, in Joppa, lived Tabitha, also known as Dorcas, a disciple famous for her kindness to the poor. She followed the Lord and lived according to God’s Word. Tabitha suddenly became sick and died. Funeral arrangements began with the cleansing of the body with oil and rinsing it clean with water. Then she was placed in an upper room. At that time burial was not necessarily carried out on the same day. Lydda was near to Joppa, so the family sent for Peter.
