Prayer for Loneliness

A Prayer For Overcoming Loneliness

Dear God,

I feel alone.
Please bring the warmth of relationships into my life.
Please cover my thoughts with hope.
Please send your love into my heart.
I know you are alive in all I experience.
May the birdsong speak to my soul,
May the trees remind me of life,
May the bread I eat nourish my soul with its goodness,
As I connect with the world around me.

I give thanks for all those who love me,
For all those who care.
Help me to receive your hope in my heart,
To embrace your life flowing in mine.
I know I live and breathe as part of your family
And dwell safely in you.
I know you understand me.
I am not alone.

God will never leave nor forsake you...

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.

Deuteronomy 31:8, (NIV)

A Prayer For Those Who Live Alone

Almighty God, whose Son had nowhere to lay his head:
Grant that those who live alone may not be lonely in their solitude,
but that, following in his steps,
they may find fulfillment in loving you and their neighbors;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Bible Verse to help with Loneliness

Where could I go from your Spirit?
Or where could I flee from your presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, you are there.
If I make my bed in Sheol, behold, you are there! If I take the wings of the dawn, and settle in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there your hand will lead me, and your right hand will hold me.

(Psalm 139: 7-10, NHEB)

if you are feeling fearful right now you might also find this prayer useful on overcoming fear.
