Prayer For Friends In Time Of Need
Have mercy, O Lord, on all those tied with us in the bonds of friendship and family, and grant that they, with us, may be so perfectly conformed to your holy will, that being cleansed from all sin, we may be found worthy, by the inspiration of your love, to be partakers together of the blessedness of your heavenly kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Dear Heavenly Father, I come before You today to commit my good friend who has fallen ill. He/She is in pain physically as well as emotionally. It also pains me when I see him/her laying in bed and struggling.
But I know, God, that You are the great Healer. Whatever disease my friend has is nothing when compared to the power of Your Name. I ask You, dear Lord, to touch my friend with Your healing hands. May You ease his/her pain and be his/her comfort in this time of need. Reveal Yourself and Your power in a very special, personal way to my friend today.
I know, Lord, that You alone are able to make miracles in the lives of those who are sick. Just as You were able to make the lame man walk, the blind man see, and the leper be healed, so I believe that You are also able to help my friend recover his/her health. I trust that my friend will be healed soon through Your power, God. These I pray in Your Name, Amen.
Heavenly Father, we recognize that You are a shelter in a time of storm. You are our strength when we are weak. You are the one who lifts us up and makes us soar on wings like eagles. Trusting Your promises, God, I ask that You would grant that strength to my friend right now who is going through a tough time in his/her life.
Give him/her the means to overcome these obstacles, God. Let him/her look to You in this time of trouble. May You also protect his/her heart from worry; instead, enable him/her to fully rely on You. Be his/her comfort, Lord, in this trying time.
As my friend undergoes this challenge, allow him/her to gracefully endure each and every step. Guide his/her way, God, that they may always walk the right path. Would you also grant him/her Your wisdom so that every decision he/she makes is a sound one. May Your Holy Spirit also be his/her constant reminder of his/her ultimate source of strength. All these I pray in Your Name, Amen.
O fountain of love, love our friends and teach them to love you with all their hearts, that they may think and speak and do only what is pleasing to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Almighty and eternal God, have mercy on your servants, our friends. Keep them continually under your protection, and direct them according to your gracious favor in the way of eternal salvation. May they desire whatever pleases you, and with all their strength strive to do it. As they trust in your mercy, O Lord, graciously assist them with your heavenly help, that they may always diligently serve you, and be separated from you by no temptations; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Dear God, I have a friend who's now in pain. This is a difficult time for his/her life, so I ask You to be with him/her. Show him/her Your mercy and send forth Your healing hands to him/her.
I know, Lord, that no disease is ever too much for You to heal. You shall allow no affliction, whether physical, mental, or emotional, to stay with us forever. I trust in You, God, and Your mighty power to restore my friend's body and mind back to normal.
Thank You also for blessing my friend with skilled doctors to help him/her on his road to recovery. Thank You for giving them intelligent minds and compassionate hearts to serve my friend during his/her time of illness. Continue to anoint them with Your wisdom, God, that they may provide correct diagnoses and prescribe the right medicine.
We continue to trust in Your timing, Father God. Continue to work Your restoration through his/her body. Renew his/her strength soon that he/she may continue to serve You and share Your love with the people around him/her. All these we ask in Your Name, Amen.
It is so hard to watch _________ suffer. It doesn't seem fair for her to have to endure so much pain. Even though I am powerless, I believe that you are powerful and capable of stepping into this situation and completely altering the outcome. In faith, I am responding to the promises in your word that you listen to our prayers and those prayers can make her well. So, I am bringing my friend before you to ask for your healing touch in her life. Thank you for the forgiveness of sin and the promise of eternal healing, but I am asking you to provide healing for her on this side of heaven. Amen.
I pray for my friend right now. I pray that you will help them with the struggles they are going through in this season. For you know exactly what they need in this moment. Draw near to them and let them feel your presence. Open their eyes, ears, and hearts to you. Help them have the discernment to hear your voice as you lead them in their next steps. Speak to them as they read your word and bring verses of encouragement and comfort to their attention. I pray that you will calm any fear or anxiety they may be feeling. Replace it with the confidence to obey your word and to trust you. I pray that your guidance will be clear to them from this day forward. In your name, I pray. Amen.
