A Prayer to a Friend

Dear Lord,

I lift up my dear friend to You today, asking that You would surround her with Your love and protection. Grant her strength for the day and peace for her mind. I pray that You would guide her in Your truth and enable her to make wise decisions. May she sense Your presence in her life and feel Your comfort and encouragement.

I pray that You would reveal Yourself to her in a powerful way and that she would come to a deeper understanding of Your love for her. I ask that You would use this time in her life to bring her closer to You and to aid her growth in faith.

I pray that You would bless my friend’s relationships, her work, and her home, helping her to find joy and fulfillment in all that she does.

I trust in Your goodness and faithfulness, and I am confident that You will hear and answer this prayer.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
