Prayer For A Friend In Despair

Dear Lord Jesus, You are our ever-present help in times of trouble.. and our consolation and comfort, for in You are all the answers that we all need in our lives, which is why I come to You to bring my friend before Your throne of grace – as they seem to be spiralling down to the point of despair.

Lord You know the problems and pain they are going though in their lives, but it is so sad to realise that they have almost lost all hope.. and seem to have given up in desperation.. as nothing seems to be going right in their lives – and so I ask that You would meet them at their point of need and provide help and encouragement – so that they may come through this difficult period in their life, .                                                                                          

I pray that this feeling of desperation will soon pass and that they will be prevented from doing anything foolish, which might cause harm to themselves or cause harm to others. Pour out Your tender love and compassion on them I pray and send help to them speedily.. in their hour of need – this I ask in Jesus name,
