Dear Lord, bless my friend who came from Thee
Save her from every harm
Rescue her from every evil and pain.
Guide always her path
And provide her with your Light,
That she may not stray,
And always find her way back home.
Protect her thoughts oh, Lord,
That she may not be anxious
But have the assurance that comes from Your Grace.
Surround her heart with your strength
That she may live in love
And thereby live a meaningful life
Wherever she may be.
May she never forget our friendship
And find in it a treasure that does not fade.
May she remember that there is a person she can lean on to
In times of need,
In times when she may cry.
And even in those times when I can’t be there
To hold her hand,
May she always know she’s not alone
For You are there, O Lord,
The One who has given us this blessing of friendship,
The One who will protect its joy forever more.
