Day 15: Guide Me in All My Relationships

Lord, I lift up every one of my relationships to You and ask You to bless them. I pray that each one would be glorifying to You. Help be to choose my friends wisely so I won't be led astray. Give me discernment and strength to separate myself from anyone who is not a good influence. I release all my relationships to You and pray that Your will be done in each of them.
With my most difficult relationships, I ask that Your peace would reign in them. Specifically I lift up to You my relationship with (name a difficult friend). I know two can't walk together unless they are agreed (Amos 3:3), so help us to find a place of agreement, unity, and like-mindedness. Where either of us needs to change, I pray that You would change us. Break down any "wall of separation" (Ephesians 2:13-15) or misunderstanding. I release this person into Your hands and ask that You would make our relationship what You want it to be so that it will glorify You.
I pray for my relationship with each of my family members. Specifically, I pray for my relationship with (name of family member with whom you are most concerned). I pray You would bring healing, reconciliation, and restoration where it is needed. Bless our relationship and make it strong.
I pray for any relationships I have with people who don't know You. Help me to be Your light to them. Specifically I pray for (name an unbeliever or someone who has walked away from God). Soften this person's heart to open his/her eyes to receive You and follow You faithfully.
I pray for godly friends, role models, and mentors to come into my life. Spend people who will speak the truth in love. I pray especially that there will be women in my life who are trustworthy, kind, loving and faithful. Most of all I pray that they will be women of strong faith who will add to my life and I to theirs. May we mutually raise the standard to which we aspire. May forgiveness and love flow freely between us. Make me to be Your light in all my relationships.* In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
God sets the solitary in families;
He brings out those who are bound into prosperity;
but the rebellious dwell on dry land.
- Psalm 68:6
