Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.

My God,

You are the creator of all things, and I come before You today on behalf of my friend. I lift them up to You and ask for Your loving presence to surround them. I pray that they may feel Your peace and comfort in the midst of whatever trials they are facing. Give them the strength and wisdom to navigate through their challenges, and help them to find hope in Your promises.

I ask that You would pour out Your blessings upon my friend, and that they may experience Your grace in abundance. Heal any wounds that they carry, whether physical, emotional, or spiritual. Renew their spirit and fill them with Your joy and peace. May they feel Your loving embrace and know that they are never alone, for You are always with them.

Lord, I trust in Your faithfulness and believe that You are listening to my prayer for my friend. I thank You for the opportunity to intercede on their behalf, and I trust that You will work all things for their good. May they feel the power of Your love and the strength of Your presence in their lives. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
