3 Straightforward Ways to Pray For Your Frenemies

praying for frenemies

2. Surrender the situation to the Savior and give thanks.

“Lord, how can I show them Your love?’’

Rejoice always,  pray without ceasing,  in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.’’ (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 )

Encountering daily situations in life with family members, work colleagues or friends can be difficult, but God’s word tells us to, “give thanks in all circumstances’’.

By giving thanks in all circumstances we can take the time to see God’s perspective in the challenging moments of relational life.

Whenever we are in a difficult situation or relationship, we need to ask God to show us how He can use it so that we can become more like Him, loving others as the mirror of Christ.

As we pray for our frenemies it changes our own heart, allowing us to focus on God’s will through the situation. Through doing this we can learn how to surrender it to Him, and not fix it in our own strength.

Great just take it to Jesus he will repay but we are to pray for enemies

I’ve had them live in my home, borrow money that I didn’t see again, make up all sorts of lies, and pretend to be the victim when it all fell down around their ears. God bless them. They will need it.

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!

So true!!!

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.

Experienced a few of them Being away with friends and acquaintances brings out the true colours in ppl. O my gosh how insecure can ppl get.


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.

well spoken

Amen to that ! As for me and my household, I’m gone trust in the Lord. Sometimes you gotta love people from afar.

Keep a distance

Say it. Very disappointing and unnerving when you notice those that you thought would be clapping have their arms folded.
