The Friendship Prayer

Friendship is one of the best things in life. The friendship prayer asks God to bless your friendship to keep it strong.

Sometimes, friendships can be tested in tough times, but with God’s help, friends can help each other lead a happy and fulfilling life.



Say this prayer to help protect or restore your friendship. Friends our a gift from God, and should be treasured on a daily basis.

Prayer for a Friend

O Lord, Please bless our friendship.

Our friendship is like a long steady soft rain.
It’s not so harsh that it will destroy. Yet it
is not so soft that it goes unnoticed. Our
friendship is growing in your grace. Please
bless our friendship, and keep it holy at all
times. friendship is a gift from you, O Lord,
and we thank you. May our friendship always
produce the fruits of the spirit. And may the
soft rain of our friendship nourish the heart
forever. Amen!

Having lived a long life, and seen many friends come and go, I can vouch for the importance of having good friends around you as you navigate the ups and downs of life.

When you experience a break up, friends are there for you. When you can’t figure out a problem, friends are there to talk it out with you. Try not to take your friends for granted, and pray for them as much as you can.

Scripture About Friendship

“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him-a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”

[ESV, Ecclesiastes 4:9-12]
