A Prayer For Loneliness

A Prayer for Loneliness

Heavenly, Most Loving, Gracious Father, we come before you to humbly ask that you comfort us in our moments of loneliness, that you be our shelter in the midst of the storm, that you walk beside us every step of the way.

Lord, at times we feel so alone, crying out for attention, in desperation, looking for some sort of acknowledgement from a single soul. Remind us that you are always there, right at our side, whenever we call.

No matter the time, the hour, the situation, Oh Lord, you have promised to never leave us nor forsake us.

Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."

Psalm 23:4  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Lord, there are times we think we can turn to loved ones and friends in our time of need, but they forsake us.

Oh Lord, you alone know what we are going through. Sometimes we vocalize our thoughts but no one understands. There are many times we cry out to people to listen, when we need a friend, but they hardly ever take the time to show compassion.

What a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and griefs to bear Click To Tweet

Give us strength, dear God, to carry on when we are down and out and have no one to turn to. Let us always remember that You are our friend and our companion in our time of need.

God, let us feel the Holy Spirit as He comforts us. Help us to realize that You are the only one we need, especially in times of trials.

1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

Psalm 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.

What a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and griefs to bear, what a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer.

Touch the hearts of the people who feel lonely today, Oh Father. The ones who are broken-hearted. Those who are bullied. The ones who have everything and everyone around them but they still feel alone.

People who have lost loved ones, and have no families, the single parent. Dear God, reach out to all of them.

Father, guide us as we pray for strength to fight against the feeling of loneliness and depression, help them all to experience peace, love and joy in these difficult times, in the mighty name of Jesus we pray… AMEN!

Psalm 147:3

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

 Prayer for loneliness


  1. Dear God, thank you, for hearing our prayers. We are often overwhelmed by messages from this world, & our own secret fears. May we pick up our cross, & follow you, w/ more confidence, empowerment, focusing on love, & friendship, in Jesus’ name.

  2. We are all loved so much by our Lord God and Holy Spirit! I have struggled all my life with depression.i have tried so many medications and had so many side effects. now my medicine is our Lord God and Holy Spirit! I still struggle but I have come a long way.i have cried so many tears and sometimes wonder how there is anymore to cry. I have my good days and my bad ones.we are all so Blessed for our good days.i love each and everyone of you my sister’s and brothers.i I will pray for all of us !

  3. While I do believe in God and love Him, I miss human contact. I want someone to care enough to be their, to put their arms around me and tell me I will be ok. When friends or family had problems I was their for them. To shout at, talk to, cry on, I would listen, cook, clean, pray whatever they needed when they needed. Even if they thought I did nothing or didn’t understand, I was their for them to hang the phone up on me and ignore me when I would try to call back. Now I am alone, they have moved on got married, busy with new relationships and children and I am just the girl who needs to get out more or go to church, stop feeling so sorry for myself.

    I was taught to be a blessing while you were waiting for a blessing. Now I am tired and alone worn out and empty with nothing to give anyone not even myself, depressed and lonely. All I get is see a doctor or thanks for sharing if I am lucky. No one to sit with me and be their. I ache for a man in my life, I have been single and celibate 20 years now. I get told you will never find anybody or attract anybody while you are unhappy which makes me feel trapped in a vicious circle as I tried to be happy alone and sort myself out but the longer it goes on the more I feel ugly, rejected and unwanted. I feel like I have failed God calling myself a christian and being depressed and lonely. Not to mention thoughts of ending it all. While I know I can’t the pain of living a life alone and empty, feeling stuck that I can’t move forward or end it all is hard. Some days the victory is in getting out of bed and not blaming God.

    But I guess we are here because as small as our faith is we have something and as much as we hurt and distrust God and may even blame God at times, we know (even if it is a small part of us) that God is good. Its hard, and sometimes its not the remembering God is good, but believing enough to hold on. Today really hurts, the future looks bleak and I want to run and hide from the world. Its my birthday in a couple of weeks and I have nothing to celebrate and no one to celebrate with. Another birthday alone. Please pray for me to hold on. The last few lines of Psalm 27 have haunted me for years as I wait for the Lord and wait to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. I pray that one day soon things will be different and I won’t feel so alone.

    • Oh dear, take heart. Jesus loves you more. He is the source of happiness. Keep trusting him, you will not be a failure. If at all you could share your email and I pray or pray together.

    • Wow, it is sounds like there are alot of similaraties in our life. I will be praying for you, would love to chat with you!!

    • I guess there is lots of us
      we give our lives for children
      we do our best give them all our love
      and by the time we know it in a blink of an eye
      they are grown up
      on their own they move away
      and then they totally forget that we are here …
      i would love to hear from you .

    • Please Ally trust and believe. God I’d real. He is the potter and you are the clay. Don’t give up on God and He won’r give up on God and He won’t give up on you.

    • I hope you are feeling much better. I have just cried reading how you have been feeling and I feel the same almost everyday of my life. I will pray for youxx

  4. God works in mysterious ways, perhaps he is trying to turn your life in a new direction. You are not alone,…. many people cry the same tears as you…I have also been there, and God is right there beside us, We have a purpose on this earth and it is not always about us, sometimes we need to step out of our comfort zone and reach out to others and be a blessing to them and our lives will turn around… because God is a loving God and has a plan for everyone of us, he does not make mistakes he did not send his only begotten son to die on the cross for nothing! He chose us!

  5. My ever faithful father, my helper. I know you are always by side. I pray for the Holy Spirit to comfort me in times of trouble and sadness. I feel I’m losing everyone around me. No one to talk with, laugh with and play with. Even my best friend, we aren’t as close as before. No one knows how I feel but I just keep praying for God’s help in my situation. A lot is going on in my life. As small as I am, I don’t know how I have been able to live with all this problem. Father Lord help me, in Jesus name

  6. 2:14 am and my eyes are so puffy from all the crying. My pillow is wet from the tears, I am tired. I feel like I cannot keep on keeping on. I feel so alone, lost, forgotten and very empty. I have been struggling with depression all my life and none of my relationships work out. I feel so tired. My very low self-esteem is at its peak and I am falling apart. Please pray for me. I can’t do this anymore.

    • Miss N,

      I understand completely how you feel because I have been there with low self esteem and depression but God showed me that He adores me and that I was looking to others for my self worth and joy when I only needed to look to Him. I cried out to Him and He showed me that if I would read His word it would show me all the ways He loves me and that I am the apple of His eye. Oh boy, once I seriously started reading God’s word and studying it and really talking to Him I stopped feeling so bad about myself and started feeling worthy and beautiful and so full of joy that I could not explain it at all. Also, surround yourself with positive God loving friends and relationships, it definitely makes all the difference in the world. God is waiting to help you, call out to Him. I will pray for you sweet girl.

  7. Sandra, you are not at all alone in having these feelings. I am grateful for your strength on behalf of you and your children and “family.” You are never locked into a decision to keep your family in tact. And “family” has many definitions; only you ~ not your biological family, not your former friends, not even your spouse can decide what your family is meant to be over time. And, what kind of friends would ostracize you? That is cruel and thoughtless if not sanctimoneous!

    You deserve better and can and will have new friends over time. Suicide is NOT the answer. Suicide is a permanent answer to a temporary problem. Your life will continue to change and improve as you move forward. Continue to visit this site as I pray for your continued love of your children and yourself, and your need for clarity on what bring the best to your children and you regarding your family. While time can see endless, time will provide greater clarity in every regard.

    If not already done, consider the support of a counselor or a group of women in your community who are dealing with similar challenges. To be able to support others, as they support you, is very powerful!

    Love and blessings to you, Sandra. You are in my prayers. God is with us. ~ PJ

  8. I am very tired. I forgave my unfaithful husband to preserve my family and yet our “friends” have ostracized me and now I am nearly friendless. I don’t know how to hang on. I have contemplated suicide. I think that the money my family will get if I kill myself will replace me. No one will miss me. Thank you for these prayers. They give me comfort. But I am still tired and I wish I was GONE.

    • Loneliness can be a long journey. Take it one day at a day, stay in prayer and reach out to the Lord for comfort. God bless you.

    • don’t commit suicide, I have read stories of people who attempted suicide and they said they ended up in hell in their near death experiences and they were in a place of never ending torment, google near death experiences of people who attempted suicide , I almost lost my brother who is not a christian to suicide , he hanged himself,and if I did not intervene he would be dead right now and losing my brother that way would have destroyed me and tormented me for the rest of my life, pray god destroy satan plans for your life,god love you and he don’t want you to commit suicide or go to hell

  9. I have cried too much this year and it’s only 2 mths into the new year. My heart can no longer take it.. Lord Father, I asked for healing and strength within my time of need of loneliness and depression and not to bow down and allow what is troubling to manifest.. I ask for your grace and mercy over my life as this will be the start of my 2017.. No more worries..fears.. Doubt and negativity. I rebuke it all in the name of Jesus.

  10. At times I feel like im in a bad dream that plays over and over each day I wake up! Constantly reminded of every tragedy and heartache that has disrupted my life, and there has been many. Wondering if this is the day God will have heard all my prayers and seen all my tears, and give me a moment to catch my breath and smile again. gee I hope so…

  11. I am hanging on with all my might. A single mom, just out of an abusive marriage, it is so raw and painful. It is brutal but I am thankful because we have shelter, food and help. My heart just aches unbearably…

    • God gave you the courage to make a tough but very wise decision. I have been there. Your heart will heal and you will become a very wise, happy woman! God bless and keep you under His wing!

  12. It is written 🙂

    God Bless all my brothers and sisters here, and know that the MOST HIGH will never leave your side!


  13. As an introvert, there are times in my life that I think that I am alone, and that something is wrong with me. Thank God, for I confessed my doubts and fears to him and he took them away and made me feel well again. Thank you O Loving Father! I will wait with love in my heart, for it is the greatest weapon within me, and none shall defend against it. Amen.
