Prayers for a friend


I’m seeking prayers for a very old friend. I finally got in touch with him again, (after several years), only to learn that he’s living in a very harmful lifestyle.

I’m at a complete loss. :frowning:



Father thank you for bringing these friends together again so that prayers anre asked and offered for this friend. How gracious You are. In this reunion we see a promise of hope for this friend, and we ask You to give him all the graces he needs to recover and choose a wholesome future. Thank You, Father. We ask, in Jesus’ name


Guide me,
teach me,
strengthen me,
till I become like a person as you would
have me be,
pure and gentle, truthful and high-minded,
brave and able, courteous sand generous
dutiful and useful

May the Lord guide your friend to a better way of life.


Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.


Praying for your friend and for you, that you can help lead him home.


Prayers promised for both you and your friend.
