"THE LORD REPAY YOUR WORK, AND A FULL REWARD BE GIVEN YOU BY THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL, UNDER WHOSE WINGS YOU HAVE COME FOR REFUGE." (Ruth 2:11)
I believe we need to personalize and speak that prayer over our friends. Ben Peters prayed like this: "Friends, God has gotten a full report of everything you have ever sacrificed to follow Him and to show love to the people He has put in your life. He did get the memo and He is well pleased with you. And now may God repay you for what you have done for Him, and may He provide a full reward to honor and show His appreciation for all you have sacrificed for Him and others."
