Lord, I ask that you bless those who are hurting and choose to hurt others. Protect my heart and shield me from people who have bad intentions or seek to manipulate, use, distract, destroy, or bring me down. Place in my life good people who are friendly, loving, truthful, obedient, happy and of good character.
Thank you for expanding my circle of friends and acquaintances so that the people who are in need of the love I give can have an open heart and spirit to receive the infinite and abundant source of love that you placed in me.
In Jesus mighty name, Amen.
