friendship prayer


When I stop and take a look at the friends my daughter has chosen to surround herself with,  I am overcome with thankfulness for answered prayers.





 I prayed this prayer for the first time 13 years ago. It was from a book given to me on Mother's Day by my mother. I am so thankful she prays for me, everyday.This book quickly became an all time favorite. This friendship prayer is from The Power of a Praying parent.



 
I lift up my children to You and ask that You would bring godly friends and role models into their lives.  Give them the wisdom they need to choose friends who are godly and help them to never compromise their walk with You in order to gain acceptance.


 Give me Holy Spirit-inspired discernment in how I guide or influence them in the selection of friends.  I pray that You would take anyone who is not a godly influence out of their lives or else transform that person into Your likeness.


Your Word says, “He who walks with the wise will be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed” (Proverbs 13:20).  Don’t let my children be a companion of fools.  Enable them to walk with wise friends and not have to experience the destruction that can happen by walking with foolish people. 


Deliver them from anyone with an ungodly character so they will not learn that person’s ways and set a snare for their own soul.


Whenever there is grief over a lost friendship, comfort them and send new friends with whom they can connect, share, and be the people You created them to be.  



Take away any loneliness or low self-esteem that would cause them to seek out less than God-glorifying relationships.



In Jesus’ name, I pray that You would teach them the meaning of true friendship.  


Teach them how to be a good friend and make strong, close, lasting relationships.  



May each of their friendships always glorify You.
Amen
