Father God, Jehovah,
I am here, as ever, raising W to your throne, even as I am humbly bowing low before you, knowing that you alone have the power to change hearts and minds through your Holy Spirit. I have no strength or goodwill of my own. I can accomplish nothing of value without you. Oh God, please look past my weaknesses and my human frailties so that you can see and hear me through the precious blood of Christ.
Lord, I am standing in the gap, believing for W, waiting on you to work great wonders in her life. Thank you for this precious one, Lord, and for the tremendous testimony that will come from her. She has lived through so much...seen too much. Show her your grace. Show her your mercy. Show her your love and compassion. Reveal yourself, your Truth, and your light to her. Use me, I pray, that my dear, sweet friend will come to know what love is and to experience it in previously unfathomable ways.
Heavenly God of Grace and Mercy,
Bless the sweet outreach that I have left for W at work. Once again remind her of the precious and faithful friendship that she has left behind. Stir her soul and cause her heart to soften. Touch her with memories of pleasant times. Help her to put aside memories of misunderstandings and frustration. Open her heart up wide to receive the blessing of this friendship. Even this minute, Lord, whatever she is doing, bring our friendship to her mind. Lay it heavily upon her heart. Cause her to desire it in the precious and loving ways that only you can cause. Help her to see that there is a sweet, devoted, and loving sister waiting to share life with her and her family. Remove every obstacle from the path of this friendship, Father. Take away any remnants of resentment and resistance. Help her to see that she can come back to her sweet friend without any problem. Help our friendship to be stronger than before.
Lord, please continue to help me minister to W in ways that are meaningful to her. Remove the sin and doubt from my own life and give me an abundance of your love to share with W and with others you place in my path. Forgive me, Lord, for my own weak flesh, and help me to continue to grow in your grace. Make these prayers compatible, Lord. Please hear and answer. Show me, yet again, an even bolder sign this time, of your blessing upon these prayers and this friendship. Please cause W to receive the candy with joy and love. Please restore us soon, I pray.
Thank you, Lord, for your work in this situation. Thank you for the work you do in my life every day and for the many blessings you have given me.
Thank you for my life and for Jesus, who gave his for mine.
In His Name I pray,
