O God I am lonely.
You know how depressed I get.
You know how time passes so slowly for me.
You know how at times I feel bitter and resentful.
O God help me
to welcome those who offer friendship,
to look for those who need to be comforted,
so that in giving I might have no time for loneliness.
Thank You for promising never to
leave me alone, that in quietness
and rest I shall find your strength.
