Prayer for a Christian friend

Dear Father.

Thank you for loving _____________ and bringing her into your family. 

Thank you for the friendship that we share due to the common bond of grace. 

Please watch over her and protect her from harm.

Keep her safe in your love. 

Guard her heart from temptation and strengthen her will to be faithful to you. 

Spare her from pride, from self sufficiency, from greed, from envy, from malice, from slander, from discontent, from lust, from laziness, from apathy, from despair and from all sin that will pull her from you. 

Help her to love and serve others with joy, to work diligently, to rest well and in all things to delight in the name of Jesus.
