A powerful prayer for friendship

group of friends

God created humans and gave them the freedom to form bonds of love and unity among themselves. Love is not unique to romantic couples, and many people witness it when they meet a particular person in their life with whom they want to share great adventures and learn life lessons, staying just as friends.

Friends are the family we can freely choose and those who will support us in the most challenging situations of our lives, as well as in the most important and joyful moments of our lives. We are free to unite the bond of friendship with whom we deem appropriate, but God undoubtedly puts on our exceptional path people with whom we can establish the strongest associations.

Just as they’re there to support us, we have to repay their feelings. Address the following prayers to the Lord to ask for His divine protection, to strengthen a friendship, to heal the illness of your best friend, or even to regain the bond that was lost in time and lies.

💪 Prayer to strengthen friendship

Almighty God, Creator of the Universe and living beings. You created us in your image and likeness, and through your sacred word, you taught us the value that each of us has as humans in a society that has been corrupted by the devil’s action.

You, Lord, have taught us that we are in this world to fulfill our mission of making it a better place and that we must depend on our allies and friends not to deviate from our morals and their teachings.

That is why I ask you, God, to strengthen all the bonds of friendship that I have forged with so much effort throughout my life. Some friends from my childhood, others from my adolescence and adulthood, but they are all unconditional friends who have only brought joy and peace of mind into my life.

God allows our friendship to remain intact until the end of our days. Give me the strength to continue stable and to be able to help them to overcome their sorrows, just as they help me with mine. They are good people that you put in my way, and I ask you, God, that our true friendship be an example for the people around us, especially for the children who are easily manipulated.


👋 Prayer for a friendship to return

Dear God, today I speak to you with a sad heart and emotions because I feel that one of my most essential pillars, my best friend, has moved away from me and abandoned me.

You have united us under your divine blessing because I know that you only put on my path people who bring me good and teach me valuable lessons in self-improvement and personal love. However, I feel like the person I forged an unparalleled friendship with has walked away from me.

God, I ask you to restore my friend to my life, because I need his presence, his advice, and his joy very much. Break all the doubts, deceit and lies that caused our friendship to be destroyed in the first place, because they were all created by the devil to break one of the most beautiful bonds that you forged in my life, Lord.

It takes away from my life and his life all the malicious people who want to take us away, inventing unfounded lies, just because they are jealous of our connection. Open my friend’s eyes and let him see the sincere bond that unites us and allows us to be better people for each other. I’m there for him, tell him that with your love.


🙏 Prayer for a friend

Dear God, you have loved me so much and helped me in every moment of need that I have faced. I want to thank you first of all for always being my most significant support, the one who gives me the courage and shows me that unconditional love only exists with you. Thank you, God, for everything you’ve done for me, for forging me in the mature person I am today.

My prayer today is not for me, God, but for one of my great friends who are overcoming a moment of extreme difficulty in his life. He is the right person; you know that because he is one of your most respectful disciples on this planet. However, your good and gentle soul has been changed in recent times by the bad situations you have had to face.

Today I beseech you, God, to show him the way back to you because he has lost his way and needs your refuge and your shelter. Show him God, of unconditional love, of your support, that you are always present. Don’t leave him alone, God, I ask you, because he deserves many good things in the world, despite this dark moment in his life.


🤕 Healing prayer for a friend

Merciful God, yours is the kingdom of heaven and the souls of all humans on earth who worship you faithfully. I come to you in times of greatest need, and you have always helped me, God, because your mercy has no limits.

Today I pray and ask for my friend because his health has deteriorated to a large extent due to a disease that is attacking him. His health has declined, and I’m afraid that will take him to the end of his days.

I ask you, God, to give him your mercy and to help him to overcome this illness, which afflicts him so much and damages his life, that of his family and his close friends. Allow him to live fully in the company of the people he loves most.

I ask you, God, to improve his health and give him the strength to overcome his illness. He has the Support of all those who love Him, and I know that His Love crushes and protects him. Bless him, give him your complete protection and let him emerge victorious from this disease.

Long-lasting friendships forever

The real friends that God puts on our path must be kept in all situations. While it is important to pray to the Lord to strengthen the bond of friendship, you should also take your actions to unite the two souls in harmony.

Practice in your daily life, and your friendship, the values of honesty and respect, above all. These two values are the most important to maintain a healthy and lasting bond of friendship as the Lord intended from the beginning.
