This period of weakness is only momentary, I know that You are working in their favor! Amen.

Jehovah Shalom, Prince of Peace, I rejoice in knowing that Your grace is sufficient, for Your power is made perfect in weakness.

Lord, I pray that my friend realizes that in their weakness is an opportunity to experience Your strength, Amen.

Majesty, You are our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble! Lord, You are the source of strength that my friend seeks, please reveal Yourself to my friend, please make Yourself known in my friend’s trials! Righteous God, do not be far from my friend. You are his/her strength, please come quickly to help him/her. My friend needs You, so I pray for an increase in strength in Your Matchless Holy Name, Amen.

Thank You for being the everlasting source of strength for Your people, Amen.
Psalm 28:7-8

Awesome Saviour, You are my strength and my defense; You have become my salvation. I pray for my friend who has not yet experienced You as their strength and defense or salvation.

Hear the cries of my heart on behalf of my friend, make a change today, Amen.
Psalm 118:14

God of Love, be gracious to my friend because it is clear that he/she longs for You.

Thank You in advance for answering my prayer, thank You for being the source of strength that my friend needs, Amen.
Isaiah 33:2

Jehovah Nissi, Lord You reign in victory! You give strength to the wary and You increase the power of the weak!

I know that it is You who can renew the strength of my friend who lacks strength; I know that You can help my friend soar above the weakness he/she currently feels, Amen.
Isaiah 40:29-30

Dear Lord, I pray that You, my Sovereign God, will be the strength that my friend is searching for. Lord, it is You who can make a person’s feet like the feet of a deer, You enable an individual to tread on the heights (like the deer does). I pray that You strengthen my friend’s feet as he/she journeys through difficulty, through terrain that is unfamiliar and challenging.
