3 Straightforward Ways to Pray For Your Frenemies


3 Ways to Pray For Your Frenemies

Most of us have had them, but how do we pray for them?

Life is sometimes not easy to navigate, but with God’s guidance we can show His love to those in our life who need it the most.

There are people that we will meet in life who mirror an image of a true friend.

However, at times we can discover that the friendship mirror is actually broken. It’s not built on a firm foundation of love and trust.

Some friends can even harbor feelings of anger or resentment towards us. They may have even hardened their hearts, wishing us harm instead of good.

Speaking plainly, a frenemy, is a ‘fake friend’. I’m sure we can all relate to a time when we thought we had a genuine friend, only to realize that the friendship was never true or valid.

If we’re honest, at times, we may have been that person too.

Here are 3 ways to pray for our Frenemies…

  2. thank you Lord for continuing to keep my heart. help me to remain sober in all areas, give me immense courage, and help me do better guarding my heart. We are crucified with Christ, NEVERTHELESS I LIVE, yet not I but Christ liveth in me. Forever grateful!

  3. Very true.my family has a frenemy.when my mum and sibling’s were going through tough times.she always comes around.surprisingly, things turned around, she stopped coming and started cooking up all sorts of stories.

  4. So true. There are people that envy you going to the beauty parlor. The truly dangerous frenemy envy you for having had parents because they didn’t have parents. Sad souls.

  5. I have a frenemy that if I had to saw them love they will call me fake cause their hate is that great.

  6. Godly and sound advice but at this point of my life, I just can’t pray for my frenemies. They’re the worst. “Wrath is cruel and anger is outraging, but who is able to stand before envy? Open rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds from a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” Prov 27, 4-6
