A Prayer for Being There for a Friend

Phrase-maker, Word-giver, who created languages and invented expression, fill me with your right words of comfort and love, especially for ____________, who needs your peace and guidance right now. May I be your message bearer to my friend. May my phrases be filled with light and life. But also, help me recognize when my friend doesn’t need advice but presence. And when appropriate, free me to simply sit in quiet, listening support. Amen.
