A prayer for those who are lonely at New Year


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.

Amen.
