Dear Father in Heaven,
You know exactly how I feel. I feel alone. You created us to love one another, to be connected to one another, and to serve and be served by one another. I feel cut off from friends and family.
If this loneliness I am feeling is a solitude that You have put inside me for a season because You want me to draw closer to You, then I ask You to help me experience it with grace and gratitude. If it is because I am not treating other right, and driving them off, I pray that You would help me to change how I interact with others. If it is because of any unspoken message that I want to be left alone, I ask Your help in making the first move to connect with others. If it is because my social network is weak and filled with unkind and uncaring people, I pray that You help me find new settings for friendship.
Thank you for hearing my cry of loneliness and helping me. I thank You most of all that You are always with me, and that you never forsake me.
In the loving name of Jesus, Amen.
Matthew 28:20 “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
