Father, I Feel So Alone!

Dec 30, 2008 by

Father, I feel so alone. My church, my friends, my colleagues, have all dropped me like a hot potatoe. At a time when I really need help and love, the very people I thought I could look to for strength have stepped away from me. Yes, I have made mistakes, Lord Jesus, but now is when I need friends and encouragement.

I thank you, Lord, that you are here for me. I don’t always feel you are close. My discouragement and even depression sometimes overwhelm me and you seem a thousand miles away. But I know you are here. I know you experienced the feelings of betrayal and rejection during your darkest hour on this earth. You know exactly how I feel at this moment.

Lord Jesus, I give you thanks that I can experience your sufferings. I don’t like it, but I know this is changing me for eternity. To feel what you felt at the hands of the church is going to bring me closer to you in a far more realistic way. You are working with me every second of this hell, and I praise you and ask you to comfort me. Please bring me into contact with those who will share your love with me. Thank you, Lord. I love you.

Praying the Scriptures . . .

. . . “surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matt. 28:20 NIV)

My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word. (Psa.119:28 NIV)

but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. (Isa. 40:31 NIV)

I will lie down and sleep in peace,
for you alone, O LORD,
make me dwell in safety. (Psa. 4:8 NIV)

My soul finds rest in God alone;
my salvation comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation;
he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. (Psa. 62:1-2 NIV)

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. (Matt.11:28-30 NIV)

    Thank you for the Bible verses.

  2. Wow… I really would like to thank you for this post. Right now, I am battered with heavy attacks of discouragements in my Church due to rebellious heart of the people. But what can we do as ministers? We don’t have the right to retaliate. All we have is the right to pray to God. This blessed me… thanks again!
