Prayer for a Friend

Dear God,

I lift up my dear friend to You today. I ask that You would be with them and bless them in every way. May Your love, grace, and mercy surround them like a shield.

I pray that You would guide them and give them wisdom as they navigate through life’s challenges. Help them to trust in You and lean on You for strength and guidance.

I pray that You would bring people into their life who will encourage and support them. May they experience Your presence and love in a powerful way.

I pray that they would know Your peace and joy, and that they would be a light to those around them.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
