Prayer For Being Lonely

Loving Lord, I feel so lonely at times, so very alone, though I am often surrounded by crowds of people, but I also realise that the more I concentrate on my loneliness, the more alone I feel. I feel sorry for myself and become depressed and down, and I know that this is not the way that You created us to be.

Lord, I ask You to show me how to conquer this loneliness. Help me not only to cope with loneliness but to conquer it. I know that You have said that You are with us all the time, and that You have promised never to leave us nor forsake us, and I believe Your Word is true.

Help me to rise above all the negative feelings that loneliness brings, and all the negative elements that come with it. I pray that I may be enabled to embrace my loneliness in such a way that my life honours You, and becomes an encouragement to others who may be facing similar lonely feelings. In Jesus' name I pray,


Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You today to lift up those that are lonely and who feel deserted or left alone by those they love, and pray that in Your grace and mercy You would draw near to all who are broken-hearted or crushed in spirit, and deliver them from the difficulties and troubles that they are facing today.

Draw very close to them Lord. Enfold them in Your loving arms, quiet their hearts and bring into their lives that perfect peace and gracious comfort that only comes from You, for You have promised to place those that are lonely in families and You have promised the widow that, your Maker is your husband.

Lord, for all whose hearts are aching and alone, I pray that You would draw close to them and make Yourself known in a very special way. In Jesus' name I pray,


I come to You Heavenly Father, in a time of great loneliness and pain, and pray for Your healing touch upon my life and the sufficient grace to face each day.

I ask for Your comfort and peace, especially during those moments of intense loneliness when I feel so incredibly alone and helpless. I long for just one person to show a little love and care, and yet the people that I know are too busy with their own lives to notice the intense pain that I am going through. Help me not to be bitter by their lack of love, but rather use it I pray, to mould me into the person that I know You want me to be.

Thank You, Lord, that no matter who forsakes me or displays disinterest in my life, that You are a faithful and ever-present friend, Who has promised never to leave me nor forsake me, and that no matter what difficulties or problems I may face, You are always there to love and to care, and to support with Your sufficient grace.

Touch the hearts of all those who like me, are facing loneliness. Comfort all our hearts. Give us the joy of Your salvation and help us all to look to Jesus during those times of loneliness. And I pray that You would help us to grow in grace, so that we may be enabled to show comfort and succour to others who are facing times of great loneliness and pain. This I ask in Jesus' name,


Lord, I feel so lonely at times that I am becoming more and more depressed. I find that I am trying to fill my life with activities and people, which do not address the root issue of my loneliness or what I am going through, and which leave me even more depressed.

Lord, I know that You have promised to help the afflicted and set free those that are all alone in families. I pray that You would do just that in my life, so that I may rediscover the joy of my salvation and overcome the depression that sweeps over me so often, when I find that I am on my own and have no one to talk to.

You have promised to help the afflicted and to comfort those that are hurting. Turn Your loving-kindness towards me at this time I pray, comfort my hurting soul and renew a right spirit within me. This I ask in Jesus' name,


Lord, my husband abandoned me and our two adopted kids since Jan. 10 2007. I have no friends and family here. I am from a faraway country. Even my own mother and my siblings whom I have done so much for have all abandoned me because I do not have money as before. I am very very lonely and I cry a lot. Pls pray that God should take away this loneliness because it is becoming very difficult.

Lord Jesus, the world is full of lonely people who are weary and burdened, alone and afflicted. Be gracious to each hurting soul I pray. I ask that many would find their comfort and succour in You, Who came to earth to carry our burdens, heal our brokenness, and set us free from life's bondage. Thank You, that You have promised to give Your precious rest and perfect peace to all who look to You.

Fulfil Your many promises to those that are lonely and afflicted, I pray. Set the lonely in families free as Your Word has decreed, and lead the prisoners forth with singing! And Lord, You have promised that even though mother, father and all our loved ones forsake us, You will never ever leave us nor forsake us. Thank You for the many precious promises that are specially for those that are lonely, and I pray that You would meet each one at their very point of need. I ask this in Jesus' name,


Dear Lord, I just feel alone and I don't have my boyfriend with me. He is spending time with his family and I know it's important for him to do that. It just feels like today is the day when I needed him the most, but he isn't here. Our relationship has been going through some tough times right now and I don't know what to do. I wish that he was here, I wish that we can be happy again. I wish that he really does care for me because right now I feel like he doesn't. I wish that I can do better as a girlfriend to not nitpick on things and I wish that he can show a bit more that he cares and not just get mad at me for things I say and call me mean names. I know relationship has it's tough obstacles and I only hope that we can deal with it better together and that we get through it as a team, because I know there may be one day that we may go through more tougher times than this. Help us Lord, don't let us stay away from each other. Guide us to a path where we can be a bit more happier together, love each other, have patience and understanding. Please remind him of the good times and the love he has for me. Help us to grow together and not apart. Lord, I need and we need your help to build this relationship into something more and better and stronger. I'm sorry for the things I've done wrong. Amen

How I thank You Heavenly Father, that You are there all the time and have promised never to leave me nor to forsake me. What a great comfort it is to know that no matter where I am or what I am doing, I can call upon You, day or night, knowing that Your ears are ever open to my cries for help.

Lord, You know that there are times when I feel so very lonely. I feel that no one I know seems to understand or even cares. I realise that they all have their own problems and interests, but even those that I am closest to do not seem to understand me or show any interest in me.

Lord, I know that part of the problem is that I am focussing on myself and my own needs, instead of realising that many other people are probably feeling much the same as me, and have no one to talk to and no one who understands them.

Help me Lord, to turn the eyes of my heart toward You every moment of the day and away from myself, knowing that only You can provide the fellowship and intimacy that I crave for, and that it is You alone Who can flood Your perfect peace into my heart and reveal Yourself to me in a new and special way. Thank You for being my Comforter and Counsellor. I pray that I may draw close to You in a way that I have never known before, so that Your comfort and grace may flow through me to others who are going through a similar loneliness. This I ask in Jesus' name,
