4 Simple Prayers for Beloved Friends

Reach out to those you value most with these heartfelt prayers!

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a difficult time for many. We are now facing the “new normal,” wherein the normalcies of having physical contact with an acquaintance or a loved one has been replaced with strictly observed measures of social distancing.

In these times, expressing our love and care for the people who matter to us can be quite challenging. With the absence of nearness and human touch, it can help if we explore other ways to “be there” for our loved ones. (Read: 5 Easy Ways to ‘Be There’ For A Loved One With Depression)

Today, why don’t you try seeking God’s intervention in your relationships? Reach out to those whom you value most with these heartfelt prayers!

A Prayer of Gratitude for Friends

Lord Jesus, You loved your friends and demonstrated acceptance, encouragement, and intimacy. Thank you for the friends you have given me. 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. Thank you. Amen

A Guardian Angel Prayer for Friends

Guardian Angel, watch over those whose names you can read in my heart. Guard over them with every care and make their way easy and their labors fruitful. Dry their tears if they weep, sanctify their joys, raise their courage if they weaken, restore their hope if they lose heart, their health if they be ill, repentance if they fail. In this, I pray. Amen.

A Prayer for a Sick Friend

Think, O God, of our friend who is ill, whom we now commend to Your compassionate regard. Comfort them upon their sickbed, and ease their suffering. We beg for deliverance, and submit that no healing is too hard for the Lord, if it be His will. We, therefore, pray that You bless our friend with Your loving care, renew their strength, and heal what ails them in Your loving name. Thank You, Lord. Amen.

A Prayer for a Friend’s Inner Peace

Father, 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 their feeling. Come watch over us now, Lord. Amen.
