To Be Equipped To Face The Future Alone

Dear Lord Jesus, I am filled with fear and anxiety as I have been left completely alone. I have no one in the world to care for me, no one who is really interested in me, and I am so frightened to have to face the future all on my own.

I do believe in Jesus as my Saviour, and I want to draw closer to You. I know from all that I learned as a child that my hope is in You alone. Lord, I have found a scripture in the book of Psalms that says that You put the lonely in families, and I find that such a comfort. 

Please Lord, will You do that for me? Lord, if this is Your will for me, would You put me into a family and bring some lovely people that will come alongside me and be a family to me – but in any event, I pray that You would equip me to live my life and face the future in such a way that is honouring to You.

Thank You, Lord, that You really do care for me. I pray that You may even use me to be a comfort to others who may also facing a future alone. In Jesus' name I pray,


“The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.”
(Psalm 16:5)

Heavenly Father, I rejoice in the joy of my salvation and celebrate in the truth that Christ - my risen, ascended, glorified Lord, is seated on the right hand of the Father in heavenly places. Thank You that by faith in Him, I too might have life eternal and enjoy fellowship with the Father, despite the inevitable difficulties and dangers that I face in this fallen world. Thank You that He is continually before me. May I never be shaken, knowing that Christ is seated on the right hand of the majesty on high, and by death has conquered death and given life-eternal to all who believe in Him. In His name I pray, AMEN.
