A simple prayer is all it takes to connect with God every day. And if you don’t know how to pray, no worries! We’ve got you covered. Check out this simple prayer below to get started! 

 

I Feel Like I’m All Alone

There are times in life when you looong for peace and quiet. When you’re working on a huge project. After a giant family gathering. When you’re constantly being interrupted while trying to finish up something. Time alone is like drinking from a fresh spring– rejuvenating, life-giving. It’s strange how alone time can start to feel so different, so quickly.

You begin to long for the presence of others instead. Or, even worse– maybe you are around other people, but you’re still left feeling disconnected and discouraged.

Adult relationships are no longer as simple as becoming bffs with someone on the playground just because you like their light-up shoes– though, wouldn’t that be nice (still being able to wear light-up shoes, I mean)? (or, even better, Heelys.)

Time alone can be used to draw nearer to the one who created you– who knows you better than any other. Who wants nothing more than to be closer to you. But, it’s still okay to tell him what’s on your heart and to ask him to provide the friendships you desire.

If you’re in a season of loneliness, here’s a prayer to ask God to walk alongside you through this time, but also to send some chums your way!

“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matt 28:20b).

A Prayer for Loneliness

Lord of the wilderness, I know you often sought time alone, but in this season of my life, I’m just feeling really isolated and lonely. Friend, Jesus, I know that you are here with me, but it doesn’t always seem like it. Help me to use this time to seek you more intimately. But also, help me to find a community and companions to share my life with– my joys and my sufferings. While I wait, Lord, help me to not fear being alone, but to embrace a time to sit with you in quiet togetherness and learn to draw comfort from your presence. Amen.
