This prayer space helps us to reflect about broken friendships we know of so that we will pray so that they will forgive each other and make up.

Friends sometimes argue, and this is normal. But when friends say or do mean things and hurt each other, the friendship can be broken unless they apologize and work things out.

  • Think of someone whose friendship with someone else has broken.
  • From the paper people chain provided, tear apart a figure from the rest. 
  • While you hold the torn figure close to your heart, remember the former closeness with someone now distant from you.
  • Place the figure back next to the torn chain and pray for healing on both sides.
