Prayer for Strength for a Friend

Dear Lord,

I lift up my friend to You today and ask that You would give her the strength she needs to face whatever challenges she is facing. I know that You are sovereign and all-powerful, and that You are able to carry her through even the toughest of circumstances.

Please give her the courage and determination to keep going, even when things seem difficult. Help her to remember that You are always with her and that You will never leave her or forsake her.

Please also give her the wisdom to know how to seek You in her time of need and to trust in You completely. I pray that she would feel Your loving presence and know that You are holding her in the palm of Your hand.

I thank You for Your sovereignty and Your faithfulness, and I pray that my friend would rest in Your love and find strength in Your grace.

In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
