Prayer For True Friendships

Prayer For True and Genuine Friendships

Heavenly, Omnipotent Father, there are times in my life when I need true and genuine friends, a comforting arm, a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, or even just sensible good advice.

But there are no true friends to turn to. No one who I can relate to or who truly understands exactly how I feel. It leaves me feeling broken, empty, and lost. Fill me, Lord with Your divine holy presence. Allow me to feel Your tender, warm embrace wrapped around me, as I sit here and cry out to You.

Proverbs 12:26 The godly give good advice to their friends; the wicked lead them astray.

Proverbs 16:28 A troublemaker plants seeds of strife; gossip separates the best of friends.

Seeking God’s Guidance in Friendships

Gracious and Loving God, I come before You with a humble heart, seeking Your wisdom and guidance in my relationships. Lord, Your word in Proverbs 18:24 tells us that there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. I ask You, Heavenly Father, to guide me towards these kinds of friendships, relationships characterized by mutual respect, understanding, and love.

You, Lord Jesus, exemplified the greatest love by laying down Your life for Your friends. As I navigate my relationships, help me to model my choices after Your example. Enable me to be a friend who is willing to sacrifice, to understand, to love unconditionally, just as You have loved me.

Proverbs 18:24 A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.

You Are Always There For Me

Father, today I can safely say that You are my best friend. You have always been there for me, to comfort, guide, and correct me when I need it the most. You are always by my side.

Heavenly Father, You pick me up each and every time I have fallen by the wayside. You have never failed me and I am assured that You won’t start now.

Proverbs 18:24 “One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.”

Proverbs 27:5-6 “Better is open rebuke than hidden love. Wounds from a genuine friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.”

Praying for Guidance And Discernment

Abba Father, I pray for true and genuine friendships in my life. Friendships that align with Your word in Ecclesiastes 4, where two are better than one, able to uplift one another in times of need. Grant me the discernment to identify and nurture such relationships, that we may help each other to stand strong amidst life’s challenges.

I also pray, according to Proverbs 27:17, for friends that sharpen me as iron sharpens iron. Surround me with people who challenge me to grow, to learn, and to become a better person. Allow these friendships to be a reflection of Your love and grace, strengthening my faith and bringing me closer to You.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.

Proverbs 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.

Praying For True And Genuine Friends

Your undying, never-failing, never-ending love drives me to become a better person, pushes me to want to become one with You. Lord, please bring the right people into my life, who would motivate me to become closer to You and remove the wrong ones that pull me away.

Strengthen my present friendships so that they will be based on You and Your word. Renew the past friendships that have died, and let me be an example, leading my friends to the Lord. In Your Holy, Precious name I pray, Amen.

Proverbs 17:17 A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need.

Proverbs 22:24–25 Don’t befriend angry people or associate with hot-tempered people, or you will learn to be like them and endanger your soul.
