Friends are the lubricants that smoothen our daily grind on earth. With them, we are assured of unconditional support even at the oddest time of our lives. Sometimes, we don’t realize the importance of having loyal friends until we meet people who have been betrayed by their so-called friends. Even so, mere “Thank you for being my friend” isn’t enough to appreciate your friend.
Neither are gifts bought from the store which we give them on special days. To take your gratitude for having a friend to a higher level, you must pray for them. By doing so, you are committing them to divine care, which is a more authentic show of love than the one human can give. So, if you are set to step into the higher realm of love for your friends, pray any or more of these prayers for friends below:
