Strength Prayer for a Friend

Dear Lord,

I lift up my friend to You today and ask for Your strength to sustain them. I know that You are the source of all strength and power, and I pray that You would give my friend the grace and fortitude they need to face the challenges and struggles they are currently facing.

I pray that the Holy Spirit would fill them with courage and hope, and that they would trust in Your goodness and faithfulness. Help them to keep their eyes fixed on You, and to find their strength and security in You alone.

Please give my friend the wisdom to make wise decisions, and the discernment to know Your will for their life. Protect them from harm and temptation, and help them to grow in their relationship with You.

I pray that You would use my friend to be a blessing to others, and that they would be a shining light for Your kingdom.

In Your holy and powerful name I pray, Amen.
