Prayer for Loneliness


 A Prayer for Loneliness

Loneliness is a feeling that can overwhelm us whether we live in a remote area or in a crowded city. Sadly, loneliness can exist in relationships with two people living under the same roof. There can be a gulf of hurt, anger and resentment so wide that feelings of loneliness and isolation fill that gulf.

If you are feeling alone, know that you are not alone. God created us to have a relationship with us.

The disciples felt alone as Jesus told them that he had to leave them.  To assure them that they weren’t alone, he said, “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” John 14:18

Jesus went on to say, in John 16:32 and 33, “I am not alone, because the Father is with me. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

Here is a prayer to help you feel God’s presence, right here, right now.

A Prayer for Loneliness

Dear Gracious and Loving God,

Help me to feel your presence.

My heart aches and I feel so alone.

I miss a human touch, someone to take my hand or give me a hug.

I long for someone to tell me everything will be alright.

Please send your Comforter to me and take this loneliness away.

Help me instead of feeling empty, to feel full of the love you have for me.

Help me to know in my heart and remember that according to your Word; I am never alone because you are with me.

Your love and peace is with me, right now, in this moment. I feel it and I am not alone.

  • I am so sorry to hear about your situation. Please seek help. Here is a website: The National Domestic Violence Hotline. I would also seek help and guidance from your pastor. Don’t go through this alone. I’m sure there are resources and people to help you where you live.
    Those reading this, please hold this child of God in your prayers. I will do the same.

  • I’m alone and don’t know what to do… I’m stuck buried deep in the ground I have no one and it’s getting worse and worse everyday I go to church etc work etc I have no friends my bf beats me I’m pregnant family isn’t there for me.. I feel like I have no more options

  • Hi Peter,
    Thank you for commenting. I try not to take anything in life for granted. With practicing meditation, I retreat to a place of stillness. I would like to say silence, but our world is rarely silent. Our bodies are not silent. By your response, I am assuming that you cannot hear at all. I had never truly stopped to realize what that would be like – continuous silence. So, thank you for that awareness. Unless you know others that you can communicate with in the same way, I’m sure it can feel very lonely. I try not to offer advice, but, I am. :) I would encourage you to find a support system and if possible a church that does offer sign language. Just looking online I found some sites and You Tube channels that are for the deaf. This one had sermons, called Christ’s Church for the Deaf. I’m not sure if it will be what you need, but you can search and hopefully find encouragement and support so that you won’t feel so alone.
    Peace to you,

  • I am alone and unable to attend at Sunday’s church services due to lack of sign language interpreter. So I have no time to be there without understanding the semron.

  • Hi Spencer,
    Relationships can be very complicated. I’m sorry to hear that she is not accepting this. Be prayerful and ask God to intervene. Stay strong in your decision. Eventually, you will need to move on. I have a friend that has a “God’s to do list.” We can’t control other people. I find that when I have big issues and challenges, especially when it comes to relationships, I put that on God’s to do list. I say, “God, I can’t handle this, I need you to.” Not an easy answer, I know. Hope it helps.
    Peace to you,

  • HI Jackie, thanks for your respond to me but i did sit down with her and trying to tell her about that lets parted ways but she doesn’t understand so what worries me is that i am a man who go after woman’s because of her trying to bother her but she doesn’t understand it

  • Hi Spencer,
    Thank you for sharing. Sorry that it took so long to reply as I was traveling. Well, if you don’t have feelings for someone, you can’t force them. Sometimes it’s easier to stay in a relationship out of being comfortable even if you are unhappy. It’s not really fair to you or to the other person if the feelings are not true. You are not being true to yourself or to the other person. I would side with the people that advised you to start a new life without that person. Jesus said, “The truth will set you free.” You need to stand in your truth. Ask God to give you the words and the strength to move on.
    Peace to you,

  • I have a problem that i don’t have feelings for the lady i stayed with for long tym i don’t know what to do about it sometime people advised me to start a new life and i did for several tyms going but but i end up back to her again .
