12 Prayers For Friends

One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Proverbs 18:24

The singer says:

‘What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer’ 

Before we call someone a friend we should look for certain traits of Christ in them. Christ was the best example of what a friend should be. Always there for you when you need him, willing to sacrifice their lives for you and willing to walk with you and help you get through all the bad times.

A friend is someone who sticks with you no matter what the circumstances may be. A friend understands you more than an outsider and they can read you when you haven’t even said a word. A friend is willing to help you get out of whatever mess you may find yourself in no matter what hour of the day.

When you call a friend for help they come to you no matter where you are. It should be impossible for someone to separate two friends. Just like nothing can separate us from the love of God, nothing should be able to break a true friendship.

Just as we expect our friends to be there for us we should also do the same for them. We must not be selfish in our relationships, we must always be prepared to love and support them in the same way we expect them to support us.

A good friendship can be like a blood relation like the scripture says. We must learn to pray for our friends. We should ask for God’s protection and grace in their lives. Since we need their support most of the time we should ask God to strengthen them and smile on their lives so they remain healthy and happy for us always.

Prayer for a poor friend

Your friends are supposed to be your keeper and vice versa. Be there for them as you would for your child. Keep them close to you and let them know you love and adore them each day. Intercede for them always and let them know you will always be there for them.

God expects us to be our brothers’ keeper, which means that we are responsible for each other. Do not betray your friends rather you must be their hope and counsel in bad and sad times and the lord will bless you.

A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

Proverbs 17:17
