A Prayer for My Dear Friend


a prayer for my dear friend

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.

    Not everyone can write poetry or beautiful words.
    But this poem is very touching. The meaning of the existence of us in the lives of others. Believe in something that has power over everything.
    This poem was beautiful……… and I’m really……really impressed.

    I do not know whether it’sjust me or if everyone else encountering issues with your blog.
    It appears like some of the written text on your content are running off the
    screen. Can somebody ekse please providee feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This may be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Appreciate it
