Lord, I can’t be the friend in the way I’d like to be, given the circumstances of my life. But I pray for hope that you will grant the friendship I seek.
And I ask that my prayers for my Friend be my consolation while I wait, that I may have peace knowing that You will provide the comfort and counsel of real friendship through your Spirit to my Friend, to provide the warmth of friendship that seems out of reach for me.
It is important to me that my Friend benefits from my prayers, and I pray one day through Your Mercy I can provide the friendship I seek. In Jesus Holy Name I beg You Lord to grant my prayer, sinner that I am. Amen.
