Lights Alone
Those Living Alone


I ask for prayer for those of us who live alone and are suddenly faced with a situation, chronic illness, accidents, disease or any dis-orders or loss that limit or seclude us more than we would choose.

Once we were free and strong, helping others, now we pray for someone special to rediscover us, that we may share the things that in their most simple form have become ever more beautiful.

We ask that you do not forget us. We still "are" .

Remember us at bedtime, when you say goodnight to another, that we may feel your prescence.

Lift up our Animal Children for blessings, as they give so freely of love and devotion, and pray that we may run with them again.

Hold our hand within your heart as you might hold a beloved, and pray that we may again one day, find our hands clasped with another.

My prayer is that this group will except me as another lonely person, I relate to many of your situations, and I also seek Gods help in steering me away from depreshion, and loneliness.
I am applying for disability because
my osteoathritus has now limited me physically, I hve to lie down during
the day, and keep my legs elevated as much as possible. My hands do not function very well these days,either.
I drop things, trip and fall sometimes.
Makes me feel so helpless. Please help me pray for Gods help, I am dependant on others so much these days, but I just
can not make it alone.
Prasie God- Jo

Hello to all.....
Libralight, where are you? Are you ok? Look still how this light grows!
I think of you..... often & thankful.....
and so, here we are again.

**God, and Light, come so close...
yet, as far as the last star they are...
so, what are we touching,
and when?

with hypocrites rising...
here comes the sun.
* they are not God... nor the Sun....
shield your eyes from false Light...
with truth.

Those who sit in the front pews on Sunday yet not practice the teaching on Monday have not a place in the week.
Yet, all who have eyes, should see through the disguise of Holy Words used not through Holy means.

The words of the mighty pale in comparison to the Mighty.....
the God of all Gods does not just speak just one language.....he created all languages....the world over.

*and becoming still disgusted with more than petty offenses...
the disgust rises from knowledge of the greed of those who are great....
the corruption oozes from those filled with desire when their bellies are already past full.
they care not for the little man trying to earn enough for Hamburger Helper.

And yet, the pauper who tries to work for minimum wage still believes...

who is really richer...?
the pauper or the rich man?

that's where the road leads to the heart.
and only in our hearts can we make a change to a better world...
one heart at a time... one turn from wrong action to right...
one glimpse to the future as opposed to wallowing in the past of blood conquests, naked hatred, unholy Holy
and for thousands of years... these things shall still pass...
forwards or backwards...
it matters not...
for we are but a speck in one tear on the face of God.

*all Gods of the world ..... are God.
man is the only one who make little lost fragments of Him....
man needs to embrace, not villify, all facets of the Eternal One...
for the Light magnifies ...
at the cellular level...
and we know it not....
perhaps that is the soul...
and my soul is the sister to yours.

And even though your road is not necessarily my road...
who's to say which road is Right?
or who's to cast blame when blood is also on both hands?
Wrongs have been committed in the name of God so many times...
they were not of God at all...
mankind....is his own worst enemy... and somewhere the "kind" got forgotten..

and yet, with hope, mankind is also the best path for redemption....for absolution ...

reaching toward the touch with the Spirit...
all of mankind... could easlily be more kind.
can we try one smile at a time?

many of the Great Ones tossed the thieves out...
so it shall be again.
cheer on!
All of the Grandfathers are watching...
and the Grand Mother is waiting.

Blessings to all. Thank you for your open hearts and courage. I pray that we all see ourselves as God sees us. That we may clearly see our own beauty and light every day. Then we could not help but feel such overwhelming love for ourselves that we will delight in our own company and feel confident in sharing our God-given gifts with the world.

My brothers and sisters in Christ,
I praise God that I am alive and healthy and that I have been blessed with an education and my health but....I am begging and pleading with the Almighty God to send me my mate. I am 44 and have never been married. For the past 6 years I have wanted desperately for God to fulfill the desires of my heart. I have been dating a man for a year now. I am in love with him and we were in a committed relationship for 9 months, then he decided that he wanted to date others as well. I have been devistated and get emotionally distraught everytime he goes out with someone else. I am beside myself and have prayed night and day as well as fasted and prayed for days and nights. I would do anything for God to change this man's heart. He says that he cares for me but is not in love. Please pray that God would either open this man's heart or take away the love that I feel toward him. That either he and I become committed to marry or God send me the man that He has for me--that I would trust God and be at peace while God does His work both in me and him.

I have read most of these prayers and I wonder if mine even compares to any. If I should even post one. But here I go....I met this man a year ago and fell totally in love with him. O have never felt this much love or admiration towards another my whole life (except for my son). Things were good for awhile but then within the last few months we have not spoken and he seems to be trying to build another life with someone else. A life that he once told me he didn't want. Now I sit here trying to be so strong for my son (who needs me, he's 5) and move on. Yet I cannot stop wondering why he was brought into my life, felt these feelings for him and then to have him go to another. I have had my heart broken before but this time I just don't know what to do. I have prayed so many time to be given help & guideness. Sometimes I think that the Lord is tired of me asking for things. This man I could actually see "us" together forever. But for some reason we have drifted apart. I often hope he comes back to me and tells me he wants me. But I know that will never happen. I even asked God to help. I asked that if we were meant to be together that he'll come to see me tomorrow. And that if he doesn't, then I know that I need to move on. I already no the outcome...he won't show up. So, what Iam asking for is for all of you to please pray that I move on and that my heart heels. As I will pray for all of you. This has been a really hard time for me. As I can tell from the other posts that this time has been hard for you too. I just wonder what was the reason we met in the first place. But I need to move on and put myself and my son first. I just thought that with this guy in my life I wasn't going to be alone any more...and what a wonderful feeling that was. But as for reading some of these posts, I need to be more appreciative of all that I do have (one is my healthy & wonderful son..which I do thank God every day for). Anyway, please keep me in your prayers and thank you for this site and opportunity to be heard. I will pray for all too.

AFTER ONE MONTH I'LL DECIDE TO MOVE ON ALONE. BUT I KNOW HIS PRESENCE IS ALWAYS THERE TO GUIDE AND FOR THOSE WHO PATIENTLY WAIT, I BELIEVE THEY WOULD COME TRUE, WHATEVER THAT IS. I WOULD LIKE SHARE AN INSPRING QOUTES FROM COMTE DE BUFFON "NEVER THINK THAT GOD'S DELAYS ARE GOD'S DENIAL. HOLD ON; HOLD FAST; HOLD OUT; PAIENCEIS GENIUS"

HEAVENLY FATHER, I GIVE YOU THANKS AND PRAISE FOR EVERYTHING, AND EVERYBODY THAT'S IN MY LIFE FOR WHATEVER REASON. ALLOW YOUR LOVE TO CONTINUALLY SHINE THROUGH ME THAT I MAY DO THE WORK YOU SET BEFORE ME. MY DEAR SISITER, BeeBopJazz, SOMETIMES WE PUT SOME MUCH EMPHASIS ON THE MEN OR MAN IN OUR LIVES AND WE DON'T HAVE TIME FOR GOD. DO YOU NOT KNOW GOD ID A JEALOUS GOD AND WILL NOT HAVE NO ONE BEFORE HIM. FIRST SEEK YE THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND ALL HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, THEN ALL OTHER THINGS WILL BE ADDED UNTO YOU. AND IF IT IS THE WILL OF GOD HE ABLE TO GIVE HIS CHILDREN THEIR DESIRES, BUT ALSO HE WANTS US TO BE IN A UNION. PRAY THAT GOD WILL SEND THE HUSBAND THAT HE HAS SET ASIDE FOR YOU. NEVER GIVE IN TO HELPLESSNESS, OR HOPELESSNESS THESE ARE DEVISES OF THE DEVIL. PRAY FOR GOD'S WILL, READ ROMANS 10:6-13, AND COME INTO A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND I DECLARE HE WILL ANSWER YOU. ROMANS 8:28, SHOWS YOU GOD WILL WORK THINGS FOR THE GOOD. OUR WAY AREN'T GOD'S AND SOMETIMES WE WANT THINGS GOD KNOWS AREN'T GOOD FOR US, AND HE PROTECTS US FROM A LIFETIME OF HURTS, DISAPPOINTMENTS. IF IT HAS ONLY BEEN 2 MONTHS AND HE'S BEHAVING SUCH A WAY LOOK AT TEN YRS. I PRAY YOU TAKE YOUR LOSSES AND SEEK GOD FOR YOU PATH OF LOOKING FOR LOVE. ONE THING I FOUND TO BE INSTRUMENTAL IN MY HEALING WAS A JOURNAL, AND AS A FEW DAYS PASSED BY I WOULD GO BACK AND SEE THE FAITHFULNESS OF THE LORD. I PUT MY PRAYER REQUEST THEN WHEN GOD ANSWERS (AND I KNOW HE WILL) I'' GO BACK AND PUT THE DATE. ONE DAY I FINALLY GOT REAL WITH GOD AND SAID, GOD, I KNOW YOU LOVE ME; AND I WANT YOU TO REMOVE EVERYBODY IN MY LIFE THAT MEANS MY SPIRITUAL WALK WITH GOD NO GOOD. PEOPLE STARTED LEAVING MY LIFE AND I SAID HUH, THE MAN I LOVED RELOCATED 3000 MILES, I STILL LOVE HIM TODAY BUT GOD HAS MOVED THE TYPE OF LOVE IT WAS. SINCE GOD SHOWED ME HIS LOVE ANYBODY THAT CAN'T LOVE ME LIKE GOD SAYS I DON'T CONSIDER. IT'S REALLY HARD BUT GOD IS THERE ALL THE TIME WITH YOU. YOU MUST PLEASE GOD, YOU PRAY FOR THE THINGS THAT PLEASES GOD, AND IF HE SEES YOUR HEART IS WANTING TO PLEASE GOD RATHER THAN MAN , HE IS SO KIND AND LOVING IF HE THINK IT'S FOR YOU HE WILL GIVE IT AND MAKE A WAY FOR YOU TO LIVE IN PEACE AND HARMONY. TRUST GOD AND TRUST ME. I'VE BEEN THERE AND I AHVE LEARNED SO MUCH ABOUT GOD SINCE I LET GO AND LET GOD. HE CARE ABOUT YOU AND LOVE YOU, BUT HE DON'T WANT YOU TO BE DECEIVED, RATHER HE'LL MOVE THE MAN AND WE (BEING IN LOVE) CAN'T COMPREHEND GOD'S FAITHEFUL LOVE FOR US. I HOPE AND PRAY YOU FIND PEACE AND LOVE FROM THE FATHER AND YOU TAKE MY WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT AS THAT AND NOT AS CONDEMNATION. MAY GOD BLESS YOU TO TAKE CARE OF THAT PRECIOUS BABY, AND NOT SPEND ALL YOUR TIME THINKING OF THE MAN THAT IS GONE, SPEND IT WITH YOU 5YR. OLD HE SURELY NEEDS IT. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR CHILD. LOVE, BELOVED1

Tameka973: Thank you or your wonderful words and encouragement. I've had this feeling for months that this man wasn't for me. Yet, I still refused to see the signs and continued to want and feel towards him. You are right, I have forgotten God and all his wisdom. Maybe not forgotten him completely, but I have nonetheless. I am trying to focus on the things that are important to me and my son. I will take your advice and read the chapters that you have kindly pointed out. Love does hurt but I know that I need to reach for the Father now. I just wonder if he gets tired of me and if he holds past events against me. But once again, thank you. You have given me words that shall stay with me forever. God Bless you and yours. You take care of yourself also.

Someone mentioned loneliness and I add depression.
The two of them are really connected. I feel them so
much right now. I have so much emotional pain from this. I ask God for the serenity and the ease and grace to get through what ever comes my way. In Jesus'
name. I pray Amen

Heavenly Father, give us what we need of Your wisdom and strength to bear our aloneness. Divine Mother, hold us in Your love, and enable us to receive our birthright: loving and being loved.
I find I am being attracted to more world-affirming spiritualities such as Sufiism rather than world-denying ones such as some forms of Hinduism and Christianity. God created me with my human desires for love and companionship. So I will look to God to provide, and not try to repress these feelings!


Tameka973
7/23/2002 20:43

Praise God Saints, BeeBopJazz, I'm so thankful you received my word of encouragement. Some people think you're condemning,criticizing,or judging. But I have to allow the Holy Spirit to minister the uncompromising word of God. At times I may speak from experience, now I speak for whatever need I find a verse to support it. God is so loving, I used to wonder why no one could love me like I deserved it. And God simply said Seek me and the things of me and I will give to you whatever things you desire, but in his own time. I've been alone now 3yrs. but God has brought me to a place in him, where he preparing me to be that woman, wife,mother, grandmother. At times we want a man God knows but are we really ready for the gift God has for us will we measure up. God is a God with precise timing, and the bible declares; No Good Thing Will God Withhold From His Children. BBJ< stay in the word and seek the things of God first, he knows you inside out, the number of hairs on your head; Don't you know he know what man is best for you as well. But if we're already in a relationship that's going no where how can he bless us? I will be praying for each of you that God will answer your needs. Pray for your Husband, I see nowhere in the Bible about a boyfriend. Smile, But Proverbs18:22 says, He who finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor from the Lord. I pray that God give accordingly,Peace and Love of the Father I leave with you all, God Bless .

right now i feel so alone. i know that there are more serious problems in the world, but i feel so alone inside. my boyfriend left me and i don't understand why. we had talked about marriage and now he has decided that he never wants to marry again and that he doesn't want a serious relationship from anyone. i became so atached to his little girl. i really thought that he was the one i was going to spend the rest of my life with. no i have had to move back home with my dad. i am depressed and worried that i may never know the joy of having a husband and children. i just need all the prayers that i can get. like i said, i know there are bigger problems in the world, but i just need to know that my heart will find happiness someday

7/24/2002 23:34

Nanagurl: I feel your pain. If you go up above and read mine, you'll see that I was also in a similar situation. Tameka gave me alot of encouragement and ideas of how to get past this. One thing I know is that this prayer circle has helped me. I feel like I have some new friends out there that understand exactly what I am going through. But you know....we'll get through this. By the grace of God we will get through. I know what Tameka said about God bringing in people and taking out others. God must have known that he wasn't going to be good in your life that he was going to only hurt you and therefore sent him away before anything more happened. That is the way that I am seeing things.....but it is still very hard. But I am more mad at myself than anything or anyone else. I wanted it soo bad. But God has a plan.....we just need to be patient and things will happen. We also need to go back and learn to love ourselves again. You will find happiness and yor heart will glow with the love of another. But until then we must become stronger and realize that God is there and he loves us. Sometimes I wonder if God has given up on me or is tired of me. But we will go on. At least there is this prayer circle and people who respond really seem to care about one another. I will pray for you and your. I hope you will do the same for me. Like I said....this is a rocky time for me and the worst part about it is that the guy I was with seems to not be affected by any of this. That is what I don't seem to get. How can one say what they say and then one day...POOF....they take it back and act like it was never said. How do they find us? But I need to stop asking and move on. Obviously this man wasn't the one that God wanted for me. So....like Tameka said, God removed him from my life. I may never understand why he came into my life and all that but I need to realize that this was a good thing for me. Maybe you'll read this and understand what I am saying. But have faith....you're time will come. I will pray for you!!!!

Praise God Saints, I pray all of you that visit this site find strength no matter how your situations turn out. Beebopjazz, I'm very glad I can be oh help to you. I'm continually praying with you concerning your feelings of rejection,depression, and whatever else the father of lies wants you to feel. I pray BBJ and Nanagurl find comfort in God's love. Just ask God to wrap his arms around you and hold you until those feelings pass. If you nedd him every night to do the same thing it's not too much. You see, when I was in my healing process I'd come home tired, depressed,lonely, and say Father, wrap your loving arms around me tonight so that I may feel your love. In no time God's awesome love and peace would just overshadow me, and it feels better than anything you've ever experienced. and one night led to many, and now I'm free, Praise God, and has been 3yrs. when I want to feel love still I ask him and he gives his love to me. I pray the best for you all, my heart hurts for you but I know prayer works for sure. BBJ< don't ever think God gets tired of you, you must be willing to crawl up and tell him about your day. God welcomes time with his children, he knows then you're depending on him. You're in a relationship with him, spend time, learn his ways, talk to him,he's glad to know you're his daughter. Dear hearts, I send the love and peace that God give so freely to you both and may he shine goodness and mercy upon you in your difficulty times. I love you and God loves us more,Can't wait to hear your praise reports oh how God has worked it out. You're in my prayers, may God take good care of you both. God 's love I send. BBJ, I forgot I want to commend you for reaching out to your sister and giving her such good advice, Remember Nanagurl,like BBJ says God does have a plan and it is he work all things for good; to them that love the Lord. Prayerfully with you, Beloved1

tameka and beebop i would like to thank you for your support and encouragement. last night after i posted my plea i went to bed and talked to god. i asked him to come into my heart and heal my hurt. and today i talked to him while i was at work. i questioned why i wanted to be with someone who wanted to act like that, and came to the conclusion my life with danny was just not worth it. i may never understand why danny did this, but in my heart i know i can never go back to him. i have made alot of mistakes in my life and i have experienced alot of pain in my life, but every time i have came to God he has answered my prayers. it might not have been the way i wanted them answered but he shows me the way. all i can do is learn from my misatkes and move on and do my best not to do them again. i guess i felt so guilty because my mom raised me better than to live with a man and not be married. and i guess i feel bad becaus ei have had to move back in with my dad. i am thankful i have a home to come back to, but its just the point that i feel like i am coming home a failure. but i know in time this too shall pass and my life will be greater than it ever has. i am thankful i found this site to come to, because i know that there are others that feel the same way i do. and i am thankful that there are folks out there that are taking the time to pray for me in my time of need. it means the world to me. may god bless you and keep you safe in his arms tonight.

Praise God< Nanagurl, Isn't it a blessing that we can go to God rest assured he has heard our plea. I pray that God's peace and love be with you , as well as for God's will in your life. God loves you continue to talk with him and come into a relationship with him. You're in my prayers, may God bless. Love in Christ, Beloved1

dear brothers and sisters. i have not an eloquent prayer or passages to share or words of wisdom. but please know that in my heart i will be praying for you. i ask God to bless each and everyone of you with anything that you might need out of life. as i have mentioned alot of bad things have happened to me in my life, but when i needed someone God was always there. sometimes i think i have given up on God but he never ever gives up on me. even when i do stupid childish things and come running back to him. i asked alot of hard quetions to meself in the past few days. danny drank everynight. he wasnt abusive or andry in a drunken manner but nonetheless he needed alcohol to get him thru his day. he had a child from his first marriage that he never sees. and so on and so on. i asked meself do i want to be with someone who acts like this and the answer is no. even though i felt love and was shown love, this is not the kind of life i wanted to live. sometimes the best things we can do in life is to reach out to others that might be hurting. all it takes is a simple call an email or the touch of a hand and just telling folkls that you understan how they feel. i pray that God will touch everyones heart in tis prayer circle
