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.

I pray that you all are filled with the kind of companionship that the most human involved person still 'has not' in his life. The kind that is staunch and true, unfading and everlasting, unsuperfivial and sacred.

Thank You Lord, for I know you are forever True and Faithful. The bible says to; Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all other things will be added unto you. I pray you all find the love of God and come into a relationship with him and ask what you will and it will be given you.

JESUS, LIGHT OF OUR HEARTS, WE WOULD LIKE TO REMAIN CLOSE TO YOU, NEVER ABANDONING YOU BY OUR WAYSIDE. AND WHEN WE COME TO KNOW OUR WEAKNESSES, UNEXPECTED RESOURCES APPEAR WITHIN US. HOW COULD WE REFUSE AN INNER VITALITY THAT COMES FROM YOU? MAY THE PEACE OF GOD, WHICH IS BEYOND ALL UNDERSTANDING, KEEP LIBRALIGHT'S HEART AND MIND ON CHRIST JESUS.

To all who are here and those that are not: I have not written or been to this site in awhile. However, I have been thinking about this site often and those that have submitted their thoughts. I will pray for all tonight and there after. I read some of the new people and my heart goes out to you. I think that everyone on here can relate to each other. Even though the situation may be different but the outcome is the same....ALONE!! Well, it has been a month since I have heard from my ex and 3 months since I have seen him. The other night he showed up at my door. We had a few words (some not pleasent) and realized that I am very gald he is no longer apart of my life. I see now, why God removed this man from my life. After speaking with my ex, I also realized that 1). I no longer care or love him, 2). that I am totally over him and all that he has done, and 3). that he has lied so much to himself and others that he is now living in this fantasy world that only exsists to him. When he was about to leave (after I told him several times to do so) he told me I would see him again...I told him I don't want to see him again. He also said that he thought I told him those things to hurt him and make him mad at me. No, that was the truth. I have seen the light that God was/is trying to show me. Yes, I am still alone except for my son. However, I know that someone will come along. But right now, I don't want someone in my life. I know that I am not ready and that once I am, God will allow it to happen. I am a school teacher and we just went back to school last week. So far, this year has started out wonderfully. Last year was horrible and I know why, because of the man I was with. He made me feel horrible which effected everything. He is no longer in my life and my life is great...even my kids have noticed I am happier and more free. For those out there that are afraid, alone and hopeless (like I was several months ago), I am here to say it'll be ok. Never give up on God. Keep him in your life and ask for forgiveness, strength and help. He will be there for you. You may think that he isn't there and not listening (like I sometimes wondered) but then one day you'll wake up and realize he was there the whole time. All you needed to do was stop having tunnel vision and have an open mind. It'll suprise you. Please have faith, never give up and keep God with you at all time. Peace and love to all. God Bless!!!

Dear Lord, please help my relationship with Stacey, please let your light shine on us. Lord please forgive me for the horrible thoughts I have had, and please forgive me for all the wrong I have done to others in the past. Please see fit that my relationship will thrive and we will together do your good will in the world. That we may raise a family and bring them up to know you and love you. I know that I have been away from church for a long time, please forgive me, Love me, and grant me this wish that my relationship will last forever. I am your humble servant who could not even pretend to be worthy of such a gift however, in your good grace, passion and the spirit of forgiving please grant me this one wish. To all those in the prayer circles I feel your pain, and I pray for you and your relationships. There is so much Love in the world, and I want those people in this prayer circle to have those things that they wish for. Please pray for me and my relationship. I hope that Stacey will feel the same for me as you do for your spouses. She says that she loves me, and I believe it and I want her to want to be with me each and everyday and marry me. Dear Lord comfort me and grant me this wish, I will never take her for granted, I will never be unfaithful to her, I will never do anything to intentionally harm our relationship. I know that I have gone back on my word in the past. However, as a passionate and forgiving God please forgive me for my past and help me to move forward and do what is right in the future. Thank you Lord for everything you have given to me.

Praise God! Beebopjazz, Oh bless the Lord, It is so wonderful to see you back on again. I'm so happy you and your son is fine. As well as your former agitations with your ex-boyfriend. I'm so glad everything has turned out well for you and you have kept your mind focused. God keeps and covers his children, BBJ, I'm overwhelmed with your renewed strength and testimonies of the Lord's goodness. Hope to hear from you soon. May God's Peace and Love be with you and your son and I ask the Lord to be with you as you approach the new school year. BBj, God will see you through, it's just so good to see you're concentrating on yourself and son. God wants you to seek him first and if it's our desire to be married; he's able to give us that man who's ordained to be called husband. I love you and will check in tomorrow. Have a restful night and a blessed day. May God's Peace and Love be with you and your son. Love in Christ!

dear bbj and tameks.THANK YOU for keeping me in your prayers. I am working through aslot of grief and pain. I want to walk with God daily but sometimes i fall so short and wonder why someone such as He and others like yourself would give a flip about me? But I do realize this is my human nature maling me feel this way. I know that God Loves Me and cares about Me. I will just have to try harder. I want to go back to church and i want to be accepted there but i have done so many wrong things in my life. I pray to my heavenly Father right now that he will bless me and guide me in everything that i do. That he will be there when i stumble and fall short. I want to ask forgiveness fro the bad things that i have done. I want a home in heaven a robe and a crown. I want others to see God's love shining in me. I want to reach out to others and let them know that it's ok. Mostly i would like to be forginven of my sins. Dear God come iknto my heart and make me a child of yours again. Please forgive me of all the bad things that i have done. Life w/o danny has been good.At times i am lonely and afraid i will never love again, but i have the realization that i dont have to wake up next to someone with whiskey on there breath. I dont have to worrry bout broken promises. I have a weight lifted off my shoulders and the silly thing is i realized that i could never marry danny. I think God spoke to me at the right time. He knew what was best for me. I know everything i sgonna be ok. It just takes time courage and patience, I will make it! thank you so kindly for thinking bout me and praying for me. as always i will keep ya'll in my prayers! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!! NANA

8/29/2002 13:52

PRAISE GOD, NANAGURL, Dear heart there is NOTHING you can do where God's Love will change toward you. GOD"S LOVE IS EVERLASTING. I had to fall on my face to worship God for you and BBj. God does not judge, or condemn and neither do I. With the mind you have you will make it, for you know God's Love. You look at a higher being than yourself that has kept you. My tears are flowing uncontrollably with thanksgiving. Thank You Jesus! Nanagurl, I'll be back later, with a word from God for you. I love you all, May God's Peace and Love forever be upon you, BBJ, and everyone on the site. God's Speed!

My name is Paula Johnson. I would like everyone to pray for me right now because i am all alone. My mother is very sick and i am the only caregiver. Sometimes i feel so alone even though i know that God is with me. I lost my daddy five years ago to lung cancer and my sister two years ago in a car accident. Please continue to keep me in your prayers. I believe prayer is the key to life and without it we could not face another day


Tameka973
8/29/2002 23:05

Praise God, Paula, you have recognized you cannot do anything without God, In making that statement you know he's with you. But I understand you still feel alone. Most Holy Father, I come to you right now asking you to heal Paula's mother and restore her health from the crown of her head to the sole of her feet. And Lord for Paula allow the Peace and Love of God to permeate her entire being, Lord, please be with her , place born-again believers in her life, whatever she may need give it to her, In Jesus Name I pray. Paula, at times God put us away from everyone so that he can put the things of Him into you, We can never understand God's ways or his thoughts for they are higher than our; but through it all. He works all things out for the good of those who love God and the called according to His purpose. Seek God in prayer< I will be praying for you. God let Your Peace that surpasses all understanding guard her heart and mind in Christ Jesus, Amen!

Nanagurl, it is such a blessing to have you back on the site. Do not allow the devil to make you think that you've done so much that God's not willing to forgive. At the moment you ask him for forgiveness; it's done. It's the job of satan to try and keep you bound by bringing them up again. This is profound but believe it; That's the only thing satan can work with YOUR PAST, because he don't know Your Future; only God knows that. Everytime he bring your past to you, rebuke him and let him know God forgives you and will never bring it back up; And God loves you and will do a work in your life for His Own Glory. Ask God to lead you to the church he's ordained for you to be and don't feel guilty. You must be a hearer of God's Word in order to be a doer, You hear it then you began to walk in God's Truth. Read Psalms 51, Romans10&11, and get up dust yourself off and walk in God's Freedom, He Loves you and we love you. Good to see you back, I'm praying for you. Almost forgot; Isiah43:25, says, I,even I, am He who blots out your trangressions, for My own sake. And I will not remember your sins. Nanagurl, take comfort in knowing God will not bring them up again, NO CONDEMNATION sweetheart! I'm praying with you. Love In Christ Jesus, Beloved1

It is so good to finally be back with all of you! I have been unable to get on line for a while, but I have included the members of this circle in my prayers each day. It is such a blessing to be able to connect to others that know what loneliness and grief can do to your life. I pray that the strength that Nanagurl and Bebopjazz are finding will be mine one day very soon. It is so hard to be around someone that you care about, even though you know he is not the right person for you and have the courage to walk away from him. I have hated being alone so much since my husband passed that I formed an attachment to a man that does not have my best interests at heart. I know that he is not my future, yet I am still drawn to him. The more he treats me indifferently, the more I want to be with him, simply because I can't bear being alone. I know God must have some plan for me,but I don't seem to be able to figure out what that plan may be. Why is it so hard? Please pray for me. I want to be able to live alone and not be so needy that I will do anything to have this man in my life. I have given him money, helped him buy a house and even put up with him being attracted to a man. I pray that God will guide me and I will be able to follow what he wants me to do.

bbj and tameka thank ou fro your words of encouragement. it means alot to me to have scruiputures to fall bnack on. i love to read the book of psalms...many inspirational passages can be found there. kesansmaith...please hang in there and know that i am praying for you..as well as others on this site. i had the weirdest dream the other night and if i may be so bold to share it with ya'll. i usually sleep with my tv or stereo on but i had turned them off. i dreamed my guardian angel and the devil were fighting over my soul. i didnt see faces, i just heard voices saying no shes mine u must leave. i felt a tightness on my chest as if someone was sitting on me. i tried to touch and grab my way out but i felt so weak and helpless. when i awoke, i heard wings fluttering. i dunno wut made me dream this, and in a sense i feel a calm come over me. i know what i must do in order to get my life right with god before it is to late. my journey has just begun and each day is a new step. i look forward to praising god and praying for my friends on here. to everyone that is hurting and alone..may god bless you and hold you tightly in his arms tonight. love you all.nana

God loves you Kesansmith, and is able torescue you from your pain and lonliness. I would not trade the experiences that love and life has taught me, because through your pain God does his greatest work in perfecting you to be the woman He intended. In Jeremiah29:11, God says; For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of Peace and not of evil, to give you (Kesansmith) a future and a hope. Itsn't it a great assurance to know God knows our thoughts even if we didn't speak them aloud. And I pray that God will grant you His Peace not Peace that the world offers; But The Peace of Our Heavenly Father. Father, please guide Kesan, in all Your Truth, allow her to feel Your Love for itis no greater Love than the Love of the Father. I pray this in Jesus Name, for the Glory og God, Amen! Kesan, I know we desire earthly Love but look at it, God wants to give his children all their desires. But if you're already in a position where you're not strategically in place to accept the Gift God has for you, then you're robbing yourself. I mean this if you're praying and asking God for that man he has for you, but because you don't want to be lonely, you settle for less than God has for you, you'll never come into the Promises God has. Because you're settling for housekeeper when you can be keeper or owner of the house. I don't want to be mean or critical, nor judge anyone but God has better for you; wait on his timing. Place yourself in a position so you can meet the man God has ordained to be your husband. God is a just God but he's not the author of confusion. Began to seek God and ask him to reveal His plan for your life. lllJohn:2 says, Beloved (that's you Kesan) I wish above All things that you mayest prosper and be in health; even as thou soul prospereth. God has all your aspirations in mind. Read your bible daily; ask for wisdom, so that you may learn of God and His directions he want you to go. But surely he don't want us to be taken advantage of simply because we're lonely and need companion. I've loved a man that didn't love me; I use to cry myself to sleep and finally I came to the realization that why I'm bawling my eyes out, what's he's doing, still running around, partying, have a great time and I'm feeling all the pain. Well, I said to myself, What kind of fool are you? Do you really think he care; if he's crying, if he's putting a hold on his life, etc. No No No! I picked up my biible (I always knew God loved me, but God told husband; to love your wife like he loved hiHis church.) began to search for God's Love, Peace, and Restoration for me. It wasn't easy but I overcame, I'd always say to myself I DON"T WANT NOONE THAT DON"T WANT ME. I'm saying all of this for you to know it can and will pass. Father, In The Name Of Jesus, I pray you wrap your arms around Kesan, and heal her hurts, disappointments, lonliness, rejection, and whatever else you know is there that keeps her from being Whole and Complete in You, Father, I ask all the blessings In Your Son, Jesus Name , And for Your Glory Lord. ANd may Kesan take my post in Love and not of judgement. God doesn't judge us and I certainly can't. We love you and have your concerns before God. May His Love and Peace engulf you that you can walk in freedom of Christ. God's Speed

Praise God Nanagurl and BBJ, and all prayer partners. Nanagurl, God is Awesome. The devil desire to keep you in his world of lies, deceit, and destruction. But God loves you so much dear He's sending forth His Angels to keep you. Psalms91:1-16, talks about God giving you angels to watch over you and keep you. But what it is, is a fight for your soul. But God says you belong to Him and the devil in hell can't pluck you out of his hands. The heaviness on your chest was the enemy; then God sent His Angels to bring you out. Nanagurl, Please, Please, Stay in the Lord, God will teach you how to walk according to His statues. Even if you don't feel go to church, read your bible daily, we all may have weaknesses to one thing or another but once God purges and cleanses you, the Holy Spirit will convict you of those things and they will began to look nasty and dirty. That's God working in you to perfect holiness. Heavenly Father, I pray that you send a host of angels to guard, protect, and minister God's Love, Peace, and Forgiveness to Nanagurl, Keep her in Your ways. I was so happy to see you on the net I went into prayer for you and the rest but especially for you and BBJ, I have another circle and I asked them to keep you both in their prayers. And Praise God, He's heaard our cries. He Loves you with a lasting Love. I'm just so overwhelmed with your dream, Then again God overwhelms us with His Love each day. But Nana, I'm fervently praying for your recommitment to Christ. But just know dear heart God has plans for you, you have to be a winner of many souls; for his Kingdom. And the enemy is mad and wants to keep you bound by your past. Heavenly Father, I pray you bring Nanagurl, into the place you've desire her to be in You, Keep her and family that she may Glorify and bring Glory to You Lord. Nanagurl, do you see why Danny couldn't be in your life; he had to move on; God purposed it, to bring you into the fold. God does everything for His own Glory. I'm telling you dear God Is Awesome, that's why at times we try and sort out why, why, why, God has to take some of us through pain, lonliness, and heartbreak, just to get our attention and let us know He's God, and He's a jealous God and will not have no one before him. He's gracious, merciful, kind, and Loves us just the same but he takes the junk out of our lives that's causing too much havoc so we can walk in His Love, Peace and Provisions. If we din't have troubles we probably wouldn't have need to pray; and that's terrible but God has a way of bringing us to Him. The Holy Spirit's just bringing words to me faster than I can type but I will give you all God wants you to know. But be not dismayed, or afraid for God says this is His plan for you. He will bless you so that your friends and people that use to know you will be amazed at the change and come to know Christ by your Light shining. Thank You, Jesus I Love You. Now may every good and perfect work come forth in your life and may God forever bless and keep you. Love In Christ, Beloved1

Thank you so much for the awesome prayers. When i happened to come upon this site, i never imagined the outpouring of love i have received from my brothers and sisters in Christ.It is a wonderfu;l feeling to know that there are folks praying for me and cvarea bout me soul. I hope i can touch someones heart and make them see that God loves them so very much. And it is true that at times it seems we have everything we want in the world...but we forget about God. And when things go wrong, just like the prodigal son he welcomes us back into the fold. No questions asked. God's love is unconditional> His love to us is free because he died for our sins. I'm afraid i am not the most biblical person in the world, and what i mean is i dont know how to offer scriptures for folks to read so they can understand what i am saying. All i know is that God loves me and his light shines through me each day. he gives me the courage to face each day and start again whe i have failled him. Lord i pray that you will come into our hearts. Give us the answers we desire at the apprpriate time.Help us to have understanding and compassion for the folks that hurt us. Give us renewed strnght to fight a good fight for you. help us in our daily walks.. tis i ask in your almighty name...amen...bbj and tameka thank you for keeping me in your prayers. i pray for you also and everyone else in this site...god bless...nana

Praise God Nanagurl, it's good to see you're still beholding the Love and Beauty of the Lord. For God Is So Worthy To Be Praised. I'm continually praying for you and will include that whatsoever you read or hear about the Word Of God, that the precious Gift of the Holy Spirit will keep it. Heavenly Father, I pray that you will grant to Nanagurl the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that guides, teaches, and convicts us that whatsoever she read may be kept in her spirit and that You Lord will continue to show her the path in which you are guiding her down. Father, Please keep and bless BBJ and her family. May Your Peace and Love be with them both as well as all members of this circle. In Jesus Name, Amen!

I feel very alone. I don't have any friends. My family tries, but I'm a solitary person. I know nothing else. I pray to the Lord I can find someone to help me.
