Lord, I pray for my dear friend who is reading these words right now. I ask You to pour out Your grace and mercy, accompanied by an immediate, palpable awareness of how much You love them.
With this prayer, Father, I lift up every aspect of my friend’s life to You. Bless them, help them, and strengthen them today. Intervene in the situations that are troubling them or hampering them, and bring solution, resolution, and provision.
I declare on their behalf the wonderful promise You express in Jeremiah 29:11 —that You know Your plans for each of us—plans for good and not for evil, to provide us with a future and a hope. I ask You to bring that into reality for my friend as I pray now, letting him or her know that the future You have prepared is a positive one, filled with hope and blessing.
I pray these words from Ephesians 1:18: that the eyes of my friend’s heart will be enlightened to know the hope of Your calling, and the riches of the glory of the inheritance You have reserved for them. Please make this a reality for them today.
In the name of Jesus, I intercede for this dear one, and I speak Your blessing, favor, and hope for every aspect of my friend’s life—now and in the future. Amen.
