My husband and I have been together over 10-years. There has been many fights that were unhealthy and although it has been quiet for some time now, something isnt right. He doesnt seem happy and Im afraid Im so numb from the loneliness and betrayal from the past that our connection is hanging by a thread.
I want to be his best friend again and be able to turn to him as he to me. We need many prayers to hopefully help bring us back to where we should be. I dont need this, I want this to happen. We need the flame to be restarted! I hope we can communicate in a more friendly manner and stay clear of yelling and put downs.
And I need him to stop making me feel like Im not smart or my opinion is relevent.
Return to Marriage Prayer
Heavenly, Most Loving, Gracious Father, we come before you to humbly ask that you comfort us in our moments of loneliness, that you be our shelter in the midst of the storm, that you walk beside us every step of the way.
Lord, at times we feel so alone, crying out for attention, in desperation, looking for some sort of acknowledgement from a single soul. Remind us that you are always there, right at our side, whenever we call.
No matter the time, the hour, the situation, Oh Lord, you have promised to never leave us nor forsake us.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
Forsaken by loved ones
Lord, there are times we think we can turn to loved ones and friends in our time of need, but they forsake us.
Oh Lord, you alone know what we are going through. Sometimes we vocalize our thoughts but no one understands. There are many times we cry out to people to listen, when we need a friend, but they hardly ever take the time to show compassion.
Strength to carry on
Give us strength, dear God, to carry on when we are down and out and have no one to turn to. Let us always remember that You are our friend and our companion in our time of need.
God, let us feel the Holy Spirit as He comforts us. Help us to realize that You are the only one we need, especially in times of trials.
1 Peter 5:7 Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Psalm 28:7 The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
What a friend we have!
What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear. What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer.
Touch the hearts of the people who feel lonely today, Oh Father. The ones who are broken-hearted. Those who are bullied. The ones who have everything and everyone around them but they still feel alone.
People who have lost loved ones, and have no families, the single parent. Dear God, reach out to all of them.
Father, guide us as we pray for strength to fight against the feeling of loneliness and depression, help them all to experience peace, love and joy in these difficult times, in the mighty name of Jesus we pray… AMEN!

What others are saying around the website
Yesterday on the Facebook page, we took prayer requests. One of our precious readers, Joeann, lost her husband two years ago and she is feeling so lonely. There have been times in my life when I felt deep feelings of loneliness and my heart aches for Joeann. I was thinking about her during my run today. We’re all praying for you, Joeann! May this prayer provide comfort to her and to you.
A Prayer When I Feel Lonely
Thank you for listening to my heart;
Your patience with me is to be praised.
Today I had that feeling again-
The one where I feel so alone.
It seems that no one understands…
Even my family and friends don’t “get” me at times.
Though I can be in a room full of people,
I feel lonely…
And I feel alone.
I know You said You would never leave me.
Your Word promises this and it’s true.
These feelings are but signs of my human form.
Would You help me to sense Your presence in my life?
Would You reveal Yourself to me
In a way far beyond my imagination?
Thank you for the peace beyond my comprehension
That can only be provided by You.
In Jesus’ name,
