Alone on Valentine’s Day

Single and alone on Valentine’s Day, huh? Not sure there’s much more to say about that. 

What is it about being single on this manufactured holiday that makes us wonder if we will ever find someone? 

Maybe it’s the pressure. Maybe it’s the weird things people say or the awkward looks they give when they ask, “What are you doing tonight?” And we respond with, “going to hang out with some friends” or “going home and watching a movie.” 

Even if we felt completely okay with being single, the look on their faces makes us doubt our “okayness.”

Well, the good news is that you’re not alone on Valentine’s Day. There’s a really good God, who is the embodiment of true Love, and he’s with all of us single people. 

“There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear…” (1 John 4:18a).

So if you’re feeling extra alone today, here’s our full Valentine’s Day prayer:

Valentine’s Day Prayer

God who is Love, poke holes in all of the false versions of love that surround me today, and help me see and experience the true love you have for me. On this Valentine’s Day, give me a tangible sense of your presence, and remind me I am your beloved. Help me take a step closer to the whole person you’ve made me to be, and help me see opportunities to show others your true, self-sacrificial love. Amen.
