Holiday Loneliness: A Prayer for Holiday Loneliness
Updated: October 20, 2022
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I lift up myself and anyone else who is dealing with holiday loneliness. I ask for Your help Lord in dealing with holiday loneliness in a Godly way and praying for those who are dealing with the same situation. I know I am not alone because the Lord is with me especially when I am weak (Isa. 41:10). I pray, if I am able, to open invitations out to those who may be lonely this holiday season as well to get together. I ask Lord for creative solutions if I am financially unable, physically unable, unsure how to reach out and help, or any other way if feel I may be held back so I can reach out and be what I need to others (Heb. 13:1-2). I ask for invitations to be sent to me so I won’t be alone this holiday season. I pray for Godly, like-minded individuals, who are safe, and willing to have me a part of their life in this way.
I pray for any relationships that may be broken and I ask for Your Divine direction in taking steps to heal those relationships if that is what I’m called to do. Otherwise, I know Lord You are with me and I’m not truly alone (Psalm 27:10). For those, I am called out to seek and mend relationships or friendships, I pray for a softening of hearts, ears that are receptive, sight for the truth, and for Your Warrior Angels to go out before me and clear a path so no assignments of the enemy can come to fruition. I pray apologies will help to bring closure, healing and restoration, and creating new experiences together will mend the time or anything else that was lost. I pray for family to once again laugh together. I pray we will have Your eyes in seeing each other with new inspiration. I pray against anything that seeks to keep family, friends, and marriages in bondage. I also know that if any of things don’t happen, You Lord, do not leave me without family (John 14:18).
I will trust You Lord at all times and especially during those difficult moments where I need You the most (Psalm 62:8). I pray that I will hold nothing back when I’m feeling the effects of holiday loneliness. I will cry out to You and return to You each time I feel like my emotions are taking over. I will take this time to focus on You knowing I am not alone and You are the best company I could ever have. During this time I will reflect, pray, and be thankful for those things that are present in my life and not absent. Thank You for Your sacrifice so I have the opportunity to be in Your presence and receive Your promise
Fill my heart with peace and contentment. According to Your Word, I know I have purpose, I am loved, and I am noticed by You Almighty God, Who hears our cries, even those without tears. You are more than enough and my significance isn’t measured by how many people I have around me but by Who You are in my life.
I pray all these things in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
