Loneliness and Prayer For a Companionship

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.

Amen
