I come before You today with a heart full of gratitude for my dear friend. I thank You for the ways that they have enriched my life and brought joy to my days.
I lift up my friend to You now, asking for Your blessings and protection. I pray that You would surround them with Your love and grace, and give them the strength, wisdom, and courage to face the challenges that come their way.
I ask that You would bless my friend with peace and joy, and help them to always trust in You and Your plan for their life. I pray that You would guide them and direct their steps, and give them the discernment to know Your will for their life.
I also pray that our friendship would be a source of encouragement and support for both of us, and that it would bring glory to Your name. I ask that You would bless our time together and use it for Your purposes.
In the name of Jesus, Amen.
