Prayer for Friends

Dear Lord,

I come before You today to pray for my friends. I ask that You bless them with Your love, grace, and mercy. Protect them from harm and guide them in the path that You have planned for them.

Help them to trust in You and to lean on You in times of difficulty. Give them the strength and courage to follow Your will and to witness to Your truth.

I pray that You would strengthen the bonds of friendship between us and that we may be a support and encouragement to one another. May we be a light in the world, shining Your love and compassion to all those around us.

Thank You for the gift of friendship and for the joy and blessings that my friends bring to my life.

I pray all these things through the power of Your holy name, Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Amen.
