We come before You today to lift up this man to You. We ask that You would be with him in all of his endeavors, guiding him and giving him wisdom as he makes decisions. We pray that You would give him strength and courage to face the challenges of life with grace and integrity.
We ask that You would bless his work and provide for his needs. We pray that You would surround him with loving friends and family who will support him and encourage him in his walk with You.
We pray that You would give him a heart of love and compassion towards others, and that he would be a shining light for You in the world. We ask that You would protect him from harm and keep him from evil.
We pray that this man would come to know You more and more each day, and that he would grow in his faith and trust in You. We thank You for the blessings You have given him, and we trust in Your goodness and faithfulness.
All of these we pray, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.
