Father, I come before you with a grateful heart. I am grateful for the gift of life and the unique bouquet of relationships that have enriched my journey. Your wisdom surpasses all understanding, and I am grateful for the purposeful relationships you have prepared for my life. Lord, I pray that you guide me to meet the right people—those whose paths align with the purpose you have designed for my life. I will meet my divinely ordained teachers, mentors, coaches and peers. Illuminate the connections that are divinely orchestrated, and grant me discernment to recognize them.
O Lord, grant me the wisdom to navigate the intricate dance of relationships. Help me in understanding the unique qualities and perspectives that each individual brings to my life. May I be slow to judge and quick to forgive, modelling the grace you lavish on us. Please assist me in identifying the people in my life who are not good for me. Please give me the strength and courage I need to flush them out. Father, please get rid of my strange friends. May I be never found with the good-for-nothings and the mockers.
Father, I pray that the divine purpose for each connection be fulfilled. Whether for a season or a lifetime, let every relationship serve the higher purpose you have ordained. May I make a positive difference in the lives of those around me, and may they, in turn, be a blessing to me. I surrender my relationships to you, trusting that your divine hand is at work in orchestrating every encounter and maintaining every bond. May my interactions be infused with your wisdom, that I may be a source of encouragement, support, and kindness. Thank you, Lord, for the gift of purposeful relationships. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
