Today's Relaxing Prayer
Prayer for Those That Are Alone
Father, I'm praying for (name one or more)
and others in my circle of family and friends
who are feeling very much alone...
Sometimes they must wonder where You are. I know You're with them because You've promised You will never leave us nor forsake us, that You'll be with us always—but sometimes when they can't sense Your presence, they must feel terribly alone. (Psalm 10:1; Hebrews 13:5b; Matthew 28:20b)
When their hearts fail and their spirits fall, help them determine to live in Your presence—praising You, knowing You inhabit the praise of Your people. May they set their hearts to seek You, to be strong and take heart as they wait for You. (Psalm 27:4; 22:3; Colossians 3:1; Psalm 27:8, 14)
Hide them in the shelter of Your presence and show them Your wonderful love. Help them hope in You, and let Your unfailing love rest upon them. Help them to fix their eyes on You, to take refuge in You, to set You before them, constantly thinking about You, confident that You're with them—then they won't be shaken. (Psalm 31:20a, 21b; 33:22; 141:8a; 16:8)
Help them believe that You won't leave them, that You'll come to them no matter how alone they feel. (John 14:18)
In Jesus' name, amen.
