Best friend prayer

One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship
is to understand and be understood.
~Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Do you have that one special person in your life? Someone that you can confide in and tell them anything and you know your secret is safe with them? Most of us rely greatly on the company of true friends.

Friends help you through both the good and tough times on life’s journey. Try not to take them for granted and pray for them often.

Some people appear in your life
when you need them the most.
They love you and lift you up,
reminding you of the best, even when
you’re going through the worst.
These people are not just friends,
they are Earth Angels.

Anna Grace Taylor

Friendship is one of the best gifts in life and should not be taken for granted. Friendship can be tested at times, but with God’s help, friends can celebrate with you in good times, listen to you when you have a problem, and can support you through difficult times.

The Gift of Friendship

Friendship is a priceless gift
That can’t be bought or sold,
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold

For gold is cold and lifeless,

It cannot see or hear,
And in your times of trouble,
It is powerless to cheer.

It has no ears to listen

No heart to understand.
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand.

So when you ask God for a gift,

Be thankful that he sends,
Not diamonds, pearls, or riches,
But the love of a real, true friend.

~ Helen Steiner Rice

Friendship Prayer

I got down on my knees today,
And said a prayer for you,
For you are always in my heart,
And I often think of you,

I asked the Lord to send his Angels,

To protect my dearest friend,
I prayed that all the joy and happiness,
You have will never end,

I asked the Lord to comfort you,

When you are feeling blue,
And when you have a tear,
He’ll wipe away that too,

I asked the Lord to bless our friendship,

So our ways will never part,
For true friends always stick together,
For we’re in each others hearts.

Friendship Prayer

Here is my favourite prayer for a friend, I think it speaks volumes, and those of my closest friends that I have chosen to send it to, have all been deeply touched by the words:

Prayer for a Friend

I will pray for you, my friend.
I will name you in my heart before God and ask all His blessing be upon you.
I will be concerned for your rising and your daily mood.
I will be sympathetic to your personal needs and desires in each day of your life.
I will wish you well in your learning, or your work, in your domestic round and your leisure.
I will think of you at the close of each day and pray that God’s peace be with you.
If you have been especially kind or helpful to me then I will make my gratitude known to you.
If you are in trouble or difficulty of any kind, or simply tired and worn down,
I will do all and anything I can to lift your spirits.
I will ache for you in your sorrows and disasters and rejoice with you in your joys and triumphs.
I will love and care for you as I love and care for myself.

A Prayer Among Friends

Help me, O God, to be
A good and true friend.

To be always loyal, and

Never to let my friends down;

Never to talk about them behind

Their backs in a way in which I
Would not do before their faces;
Never to betray a confidence or
Talk about the things about which
I ought to be silent;

Always to be ready to share

Everything I have;

To be as true to my friends

As I would wish them to be to me.

This I ask for the sake of You who are

the greatest and the truest of all friends,
For your love’s sake, Amen.

Among other wonders of our lives, we are alive
with one another, we walk here
in the light of this unlikely world
that isn’t ours for long.
May we spend generously
the time we are given.
May we enact our responsibilities
as thoroughly as we enjoy
our pleasures. May we see with clarity,
may we seek a vision
that serves all beings, may we honor
the mystery surpassing our sight,
and may we hold in our hands
the gift of good work
and bear it forth whole, as we
were borne forth by a power we praise
to this one Earth, this homeland of all we love.

~ John Daniel

The Miracle of Friendship

There’s a miracle called friendship
that dwells within the heart
And you don’t know when it happens
or when it gets a start…
But the happiness it brings you
always gives a special lift,
And you realize that friendship is
God’s most precious gift!

Christ in Friendship

This is my commandment,
that you love one another, even as I have loved you.
Greater love has no one than this,
that someone lay down his life for his friends.
You are my friends, if you do whatever I command you.
No longer do I call you servants,
for the servant doesn’t know what his lord does.
But I have called you friends,
for everything that I heard from my Father,
I have made known to you”.

John 15:12-15

Loving God, I pray for the grace to be a good friend.
May I be a gentle presence in the life of my friends,
ever willing to listen, to forgive, and to extend hospitality.
Remind me of the importance of friendship
so that I take the time to nourish these precious relationships.
I pray this in the name of Jesus,
who knew what it meant to be a good friend.
Amen

~ Proverbs 17:17

A Prayer for a Friend

Lord please give my treasured friend
Love and blessings without end.
Bring contentment in her life;
Comfort her in times of strife.
Always keep her safe, secure;
Let her path to You be sure.
Lord, I pray my friend will be
Close to You, eternally.

~ Joanna Fuchs

I Said A Prayer For You Today

I said a prayer for you today
And know God must have heard
I felt the answer in my heart
Although He spoke no word.
I didn’t ask for wealth or fame,
I knew you wouldn’t mind.
I asked Him to send treasures
Of a far more lasting kind.
I asked that He’d be near you
At the start of each new day,
To grant you health and blessings
And friends to share your way.
I asked for happiness for you
In all things great and small,
But it was for His loving care
I prayed the most of all.

You’ve Got A Friend

When you’re feeling stuck,
And don’t know what to do,
Remember you’ve got a friend right here,
That’s always there for you.

Whether you need a hand to hold,

Or someone to lead the way,
Don’t think for a second that you’ll impose
Because “Real Friends” are always there
To help you through the day.

Friends are the flowers in the garden of life.
They help you through times of trouble and strife.

There’s nothing like friends to make a heart sing.

True friends will share with you most everything.

They will not abandon you in times of need.

They aren’t overcome by envy or greed.

Friends are icing on life’s great big cake.

Real friends will give and allow you to take.

I don’t know how I would survive without friends.

The applaud my beginnings and mourn my sad ends.

Tell me, please tell me, what would I do.

If I didn’t have a garden full of friends just like YOU!

Thanks

Thanks to those who hurt me,
you made me a stronger person.
Thanks to those who love me,
you made my heart bigger.
Thanks to those who cared,
you made me feel important.
Thanks to those who showed concern,
you let me know that you care.
Thanks to those who left,
you showed me that not everything is forever.
Thanks to those who stayed,
you showed me the true meaning of friendship.
Thanks to those who entered my life,
you helped me become the person I am today.

Friendship Cross

May this cross be a reminder
of the beautiful friendship that I have been blessed with.
Remind us to carry one another when the load is too heavy.
Keep me ever mindful of the meaning of true friendship
and of Your presence in my life.

Friendship

A friend is like a tower strong,
A friend is like a joyous song
That helps us on our way.

When golden ties of friendship bind

The heart to heart, the mind to mind,
How fortunate we are!

For friendship is a noble thing;

It soars past death on angel’s wing
Into eternity.

God blesses friendship’s holy bond

Both here and in the great beyond;
A benefit unpriced.

Then may we know that wondrous joy,

That precious ore without alloy;
A friendship based on Christ.

A Friend’s Prayer

I don’t need your wealth; I need your warmth.
I don’t need your judgement; I need your forgiveness.
I don’t need your opinions; I need the truth.
I don’t need your lessons; I need your laughter.
I don’t need your personality; I need your purity.
I don’t need your entertainment; I need your presence.
I don’t need your knowledge; I need your wisdom.
I don’t need your recognition; I need your compassion.
I don’t need your acquaintance; I need your friendship.

~ Byrd Braggett

My Wish for You

When you are lonely

I wish you love.
When you are down

When things are complicated

When things look empty
I wish you hope.

A Prayer for A Friend

This I pray for you, my friend – that you strive to be all that you can be, yet never become a copy of another.
That you realize your own unique qualities and all that makes you special.
That you open up your eyes to the beauty in each day.
That you reach out to others less fortunate than you.
That by giving you learn the joy of receiving.
That you let go of the sadness of the past, yet always remember the good moments.
That you learn to accept life as it is, even with its disappointments.
For life is meant to be enjoyed and at all times endured, but never taken for granted.
And I pray that you will be aware at all times that you are one special person, among all special persons.
And do the best you can.

~ Robin Morgan

The Joy of Your Friendship

There are moments when all of us
can feel a certain emptiness,
can glimpse despair
and sense how dreadful life would be
devoid of meaning and purpose.

Perhaps that is what the disciples

experienced at your death.
And then, Lord the experienced anew
the delight of sharing with you,
and you calling them friends.

Yes, Lord, without you

life loses its meaning and purpose.
Without you our joys are short-lived.
For you are life itself,
and the meaning and purpose of life,
and your friendship is a treasure
like nothing else on earth.
Lord may I always know
the joy of your friendship.

Amen

Another Friendship Prayer

Dear Lord, With my whole heart I ask
That you look after my friends
Guide them in troubles
Lead them when lost
Give them your ear
When they just need to talk

Lend them a hand

When they’ve nowhere to turn
Show them a new road
When a bridge has been burned

Teach them to smile

When everything seems bad
And show them there is happiness
After all that seems sad

Dear Lord,

This is my prayer
I hope that every word you can hear
This message is from my heart
For my friends are so dear

Amen.

A Prayer for a Friend

Dear Lord,
If I could only be,
Worthy of one wish from Thee.
I would not ask for wealth or fame–
For I have more in Jesus’ name;
I would not ask for homes or lands–
My treasures lie in Jesus’ hands;
I would not ask for health or food–
For thou dost give me all that’s good;
But I would that I could see,
Just how the greatest friend to be
To one Thou’st given me to love,
Both here and in our Home above–
That, Lord, the love Thou hast given me
Might fill his life and soul, that he
Will never question, never fear,
My love for him is just veneer–
But man each time I clasp his hand,
Feel friendship true, and understand
That of Thy many gifts I see,
He is a precious one to me.

Amen.

Everyone Needs Someone

People need people and friends need friends
And we all need love for a full life depends
Not on vast riches or great acclaim,
Not on success or on worldly fame,
But just in knowing that someone cares
And holds us close in their thoughts and prayers-
For only the knowledge that we’re understood
Makes everyday living feel wonderfully good,
And we rob ourselves of life’s greatest need
When we “lock up our hearts” and fail to heed
The outstretched hand reaching to find
A kindred spirit whose heart and mind
Are lonely and longing to somehow share
Our joys and sorrows and to make us aware
That life’s completeness and richness depends
On the things we share with out loved ones and friends.

~ Helen Steiner Rice

Prayer of Thanks for Friends

I want to thank you, Gracious Lord,
for the good friends you give me;
they are for me a priceless bounty.
Thanks to them, friendship is neither an abstraction,
nor a distant, almost impossible, dream.
I owe to your providence, Lord,
the possibiltiy of counting on
the constant help of friends.
Between me and them you have formed a solid bridge,
which can withstand all threats of destruction.
The happiness with which you have blessed us
enables us to enrich one another.
Lord, tehre was something astonishing,
almost mysterious,
in the way I met my friends;
it was always outside the expected pattern.
But you alone know the reasons
that drew us closer together.
This surprise and joy are refreshing,
and I experience them anew
at every step of my life.
Not all proved to be steadfast friends,
but I have to thank you
for the faithful ones.
I promise to do everything in my power
to deserve this precious gift
that you have reserved for me.
I ask you, Gracious Lord, to keep them safe in your hands,
for they are yours above all.
Amen.

Prayer of Friendship

You have blessed us, O God,
with the gift of friendship,
the bonding of persons
in a circle of love.
We thank you for such a blessing:
for friends who love us,
who share our sorrows,
who laugh with us in celebration,
who bear our pain,
who need us as we need them,
who weep as we weep,
who hold us when words fail,
and who give us the freedom
to be ourselves.
Bless our friends with health,
wholeness, life, and love.
Amen.

The ships that sail the sea.

Friendship Quote

The true friend is the one who’s coming in the door while everyone else is going out. Friends are the ones who love you when you’re hard to love, stand by you when it’s not the popular thing to do and are there for you when you need it, even if it means they don’t get anything back.

A friend will strengthen you with his prayers, bless you with his love, and encourage you with his hope.

There is nothing on this earth to be prized more than true friendship. ~ St Thomas Aquinas

Please please pray for me and my best friend, Carlo. Pray for him especially that he may soon grow mature and responsible. We were in a relationship before and he cut it short because he did not want to be fully committed yet in a serious relationship. But he wants me to stay, since we have grown to know each other very deep already.

Our families approve of us and we have no other problems but his personal maturity. I still very much love him and I can feel that he does love me still. He did not want me to leave and he asked me that we stay best friends. Please do pray for us that we may rekindle our love for each other sooner or later.

I am willing to wait because I really do love him unconditionally. May the Lord grant me this miracle. Thank you very much for your prayers.

A Prayer for a Best Friend
Dr. Stephen Helmreich

By Josh Thomas

Dear God,

I give you praise and thanks for my friend N, who has graced my life with wisdom, love and laughter since we met. When my life is going well, I can’t wait to tell her*; when I am hurting, she consoles me, and when I have failed, she accepts me. You have made my friend a bearer of your love for me; I see the light you made to shine in her. Shower my friend with blessings today, O Lord; make me worthy to receive the gifts she brings each time we’re together, and help me return in full measure the love I feel for her. You have made us one in your Spirit, O Lord; thanks be to God, Amen.

*yes, I changed the gender – feel free to change it back.
