Prayer for a Friend for Strength

Dear Lord,

I lift up my dear friend to You today, asking for Your strength and guidance to be upon her. I know that she is facing some difficult challenges and struggles right now, and I pray that You would be her rock and her foundation. I pray that she would find hope and trust in You, and that she would know that You are always with her and will never leave her side.

Please give her the grace to trust in Your plan, even when it is difficult to understand. I pray that You would surround her with Your love and support, through the prayers and encouragement of Your people. May she feel Your presence with her, bringing her peace and joy in the midst of any trial.

I ask that You would use her to be a light for You in this world, shining Your love and truth to those around her. May she be a blessing to others, and may she find fulfillment in serving You.

I pray for Your strength and protection over her, and for Your wisdom and guidance as she navigates this season of her life. I trust in Your goodness and faithfulness, and I give thanks for all that You are doing in her life.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
