A Prayer When Feeing Lonely

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 or 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,
 Amen
