Can everyone please pray for my best friend. She can be so naive. She reckons this guy she met because he said he wants to get married that he is for her-this girl i have known for so many years and i am trying 2 get her to learn her own faith ( being orthodox)>
As soon as a guy comes to her she is so naive and gets into a relationship and settles for second best seriously its frustrating me.
This guy is lebasian and i can already sense he is going to be playing her hardcore.
Can people please pray that she meets the right one-

Lord have mercy.
I remember when I thought that I met "The One".
And "The one" did play me hardcore, Thank God that he made it so that I never slept with him and I moved when things were getting uglier.
I hope that he shows the same mercy on your friend as he did me and removes her before anything scary happens.
As I have noticed in my life and have been told, if she waits and prays God will remove the bad people and replace them with new ones.
Lord have Mercy

You can pray for her. You can't control how another person thinks or behaves. No amount of pleading or frustration on your part will change that.

Lord have mercy.

Be careful not to assume that you know what's best for your friend, and even if you do, some would consider accusing a person of naivety to be judgmental.  It would sort of be like if I started a thread titled "Please pray for my clueless wife..."
