Dear Heavenly Father, draw close to me I pray, for I am on my own and at times I can feel so lonely. Sometimes it is harder when others are around me, especially whey they have the companionship of a spouse or a close friend. Sometimes Lord it hurts so much, but give me Your strength and patience to wait Your good timing.
Lord, You search the inner thoughts of my mind and You know my needs better than I know them myself, and so Father I place this need of companionship into You hands and ask that You would give me a measure of Your patient endurance.
O Lord, You have searched me and You know me. You know when I sit and when I rise, You perceive my thoughts from afar. Lord, please use this time of solitude to draw me closer to Yourself, to get to know You more and to love You better, for in my heart I know that You alone can fill this aching void in my life.
Lord, I realise that there are many people in the world who are facing similar loneliness today. Be the God of Comfort to each and every one I pray, and use the loneliness that they and I are going through to bring us into close fellowship with Yourself, so that we may be comforted in You and be a comfort to others in similar need.
