Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You with a heart broken and full of sadness, knowing that my dear friend has gradually been drawn back into the world and seems to have forgotten the commitment that they made to Christ some time ago, and all that He did at Calvary to save us from our sins.
Father, I neither know what to say or what to do to help, but we seem to be drifting further and further apart, almost to the point that there is a barrier erected between us. Oh Lord, my heart is so sad and I ask You in Your grace and mercy to help in this time of need. Look down on this dear friend and I pray that you would reach down and turn their hearts back to You.
Lord, I know that this must grieve Your heart so much more than mine and so, by Your grace, I pray that whatever it takes that You would draw them back to Yourself. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour, who died that we both might live, bring back this straying sheep to Your fold and into Your arms of love. In Jesus' name,
