A Prayer for Strength for a Friend

Dear Lord,

I lift up my dear friend to You today and ask that You would give her strength. I know that she’s going through a difficult time and is feeling overwhelmed. Lord, I ask that You would be her rock and her fortress, a strong tower in which she can find safety.

Give her the strength to face each day with courage and hope. Help her to trust in You and to find her strength in You. Lord, I know that You are faithful and that You will never leave her or forsake her.

I pray that You would surround her with Your love and comfort, and that You would give her the grace she needs to navigate this challenging season of life. May she find rest and peace in Your presence, and may she know that You are always with her.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

    though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah
