Prayer for friendship
(a prayer of thanks for the blessing of good friends)

Lord Jesus,

You loved your friends and demonstrated acceptance, encouragement and intimacy.
Thank you for the friends you have given me.
For the peace found in finding love
For the rest found in knowing acceptance
For the blessing found in being encouraged
And for the heavenly touch of intimacy that comes through the rich inheritance found in you.

Lord, I give you my friend and ask that they may know your peace, rest and blessing in their lives.

Short prayer for friends

I give thanks for my friends
For connection and laughter,
For comfort and strength,
For encouragement and unity,
For forgiveness and grace,
For celebration and joy.
They are so many things to me,
Such a rich tapestry of blessings,
Woven through my life.

Thank you.

Prayer of St Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

Prayer for a friends strength

(a prayer for a friend in difficulty or going through a hard time)


Please watch over my friend, keep them safe, comfort them through this hard time.
May your love settle upon them, may they dwell in your acceptance and truth. Might they rest in your peace and find restoration in your care.
Lead me as I seek to care for them. Please give me words of wisdom, awareness of how to help and the tenderness to just "be" with them. Give me the insight to understand all they are feeling.

Come watch over us now Lord.
