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,
