Prayer for Healing a Friendship

Dear Lord,

I come before You today with a heavy heart, asking for Your help in healing this friendship. I know that all things are possible through You, and I trust in Your goodness and love to bring restoration to this relationship.

Please guide me in the words I say and the actions I take, that I may be a source of love, grace, and forgiveness to my friend. Help me to let go of any resentment or anger I may be holding onto, and to extend the same mercy and compassion that You have shown to me.

I pray that You would bring healing and reconciliation to this friendship, and that we may be reconciled as brothers and sisters in Christ. Please give us the strength and guidance to communicate openly and honestly with one another, and to work through any conflicts or misunderstandings.

Above all, I pray that this friendship may be a reflection of Your love and unity in the world. Please use it to bring Your light and hope to others, and to glorify Your name.

I ask all these things in the name of Jesus, my Savior and Lord. Amen.
