At the time that we are publishing this list of prayers for loneliness, the world is in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. Social distancing and quarantining has forced loneliness unexpectedly on many people, and we sincerely hope these prayers for loneliness provide comfort in these times.
However, we’ve created these prayers for anyone at any time who is experiencing loneliness. God is our greatest comforter and companion. Throughout these prayers you’ll see themes of God’s ever-presence with us. Even though we may at times feel alone – we’re not! The God who created everything in the universe is right by your side, with love and compassion.
Feel free to pray these prayers if you need, or use them as inspiration for thinking about new ways to think and pray about loneliness and isolation in your own life.
Prayers For Loneliness
LORD, IT’S HARD TO STAY MOTIVATED WHEN I FEEL SO LONELY. THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS I SHOULD BE DOING, BUT I CAN’T BRING MYSELF TO GET STARTED, AND IT ISN’T HELPING. HELP ME, GOD, TO FIND WAYS TO STAY PRODUCTIVE AND MOVING FORWARD DURING THIS TIME. AMEN.
GOD, IT’S SO HARD BEING SEPARATED FROM THE ONES I LOVE. I CAN REMEMBER A TIME WHEN THERE WAS SO MUCH JOY AND COMPANIONSHIP, BUT THAT SEEMS SO FAR AWAY NOW. GOD, HELP ME TO FIND THE STRENGTH TO ENDURE THIS PERIOD OF LIFE WHEN I CAN’T BE WITH THE ONES I LOVE. AMEN.
GOD, I AM SEEKING YOUR HELP, YOUR STRENGTH, YOUR GUIDANCE. I FEEL ALONE, ISOLATED WITHOUT ANYONE TO LEAN ON. I ASK THAT YOU PLEASE BRING PEOPLE IN MY LIFE WHO WILL BE THERE FOR ME. AMEN.
GOD, PLEASE SEND ME SOME ENCOURAGEMENT TODAY, I DESPERATELY NEED SOME CHEERING UP. AMEN
GOD, PLEASE COME AND FILL MY HEART WITH YOUR PRESENCE. SURROUND ME WITH YOUR LOVE AND GOODNESS. I REALLY WANT TO FEEL YOU WITH ME, I NEED YOU! AMEN.
LORD, THANK YOU THAT YOU ARE ALWAYS WITH ME WHETHER I REALIZE IT OR NOT. THAT WHEREVER I GO YOU CAN BE FOUND. I AM NEVER ALONE BECAUSE I HAVE YOU. HELP ME TO LIVE IN THIS HIDDEN REALITY. AMEN
LORD, I’M WORRIED THAT NO ONE CARES ABOUT ME AND THAT I’M ALL FORGOTTEN. IT SEEMS LIKE THERE IS NO ONE WHO CAN BE CLOSE TO ME, RIGHT NOW AND THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT. PLEASE HELP ME. AMEN.
Jesus, I pray that you can be enough for me during this time of loneliness. I ask you, oh God, to be all the things in my life that I depended on others for before. I need you, God, to become bigger in my eyes when there are fewer around me. Amen.
HELP ME TO NOT BE AFRAID OF BEING CLOSE TO OTHERS. BEING IN RELATIONSHIP WITH PEOPLE CAN BE SO DIFFICULT, LORD. STRENGTHEN ME TO REACH OUT AND BE MYSELF. AMEN.
GOD, I MISS MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY. I SPEND ALL OF MY TIME THINKING ABOUT SEEING THEM AGAIN AND DAYDREAMING ABOUT WHAT IT WILL BE LIKE. PLEASE COME TO STRENGTHEN ME GOD IN THIS TIME OF NEED. AMEN.
JESUS, I PRAY FOR NEW FRIENDS. SHOW ME WAYS TO CONNECT TO OTHER PEOPLE. HELP ME TRAVERSE RELATIONSHIPS WITH RENEWED HEALTH AND LOVE FOR OTHERS. AMEN.
May these prayers uplift you and help you feel the comfort of God. He will see you through this hard time and bring you through the other side, keep your eyes on Him and you can never go wrong!
