Prayer For True Friendships
Heavenly, Omnipotent Father, there are times in my life when I need true 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 no one 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.
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, You pick me up each and every time I have fallen by the way side. You never failed me and I am assured that You won’t start now.
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.
