Dear Father in Heaven,
Today I come to you not just for my personal needs, but also to request graces upon someone I hold dear.
Just as you have saved me in your mercy, I too wish for your blessings upon my dearest friend:
(add your friend’s name here).
Allow my friend to walk out of this crisis that has come at a wrong time.
My heart pains to see my friend in this misery – but I feel helpless.
However, I have you, so I am strong.
Do draw my friend in close to you – extend your hand of love as you shelter us from this storm.
And grant me the strength to be a pillar of support for my friend in the rough times.
Allow me to be a true Christian and to show how mighty your love can be.
Your present trials are not in vain. It is hard to deal with confusions, hesitations, and fear that they must end. You may have sown
