Yesterday on the Facebook page, we took prayer requests. One of our precious readers, Joeann, lost her husband two years ago and she is feeling so lonely. There have been times in my life when I felt deep feelings of loneliness and my heart aches for Joeann. I was thinking about her during my run today. We’re all praying for you, Joeann! May this prayer provide comfort to her and to you.
A Prayer When I Feel Lonely
Thank you for listening to my heart;
Your patience with me is to be praised.
Today I had that feeling again-
The one where I feel so alone.
It seems that no one understands…
Even my family and friends don’t “get” me at times.
Though I can be in a room full of people,
I feel lonely…
And I feel alone.
I know You said You would never leave me.
Your Word promises this and it’s true.
These feelings are but signs of my human form.
Would You help me to sense Your presence in my life?
Would You reveal Yourself to me
In a way far beyond my imagination?
Thank you for the peace beyond my comprehension
That can only be provided by You.
In Jesus’ name,
