Loving Father, I thank You that You are with me all the time and am so grateful for Your many precious promises that You will never leave me nor forsake me, and that Your everlasting arms are forever upholding me day by day and moment by moment, but Lord, times I feel so very alone, so isolated and helpless, with no man in my life to deal with issues with me, like sorting out tax returns or dealing with those little fiddly things, when the drains get blocked-up or the boiler stops working, or the toilet seat breaks!
Lord, I don’t want to complain, for You have provided me with so much love and care throughout my whole life, but Lord at times I do feel so alone and so I pray that You would draw ever closer to me with every passing day and that You would not only equip me to deal competently with all the little fiddly things in life on my own, but also that You would fill the empty void that I feel, being a woman alone.
Thank You for the faithful brothers and sisters in Christ that I do have, whether far away or nearby, and thank You also for the members of my family that are so dear to me. Lord, help me to develop an attitude of gratitude day by day and moment by moment, for what I do have, rather then concentrating on my lack.
Help me to rejoice in the joys of my life rather than centring in on life’s woes. Thank You most of all for dying for me on the cross and rising again the third day, and that by believing in You, I have eternal life and the hope of a heavenly future with You in heaven. Thank You in Jesus' name,
