“Dear Heavenly Father,
I thank you that you promised to never leave me or forsake me. I come with such a feeling of despair. There are many people who have broken my heart and rejected me on so many different levels.
They have made me feel like my unique nature is something to be ashamed of. I know that you did not make any two humans alike, and that each of us is amazing in our own way. Although I know this is true, it is hard for me to see the value of it. The lies of the enemy are being thrown in my direction daily.
Help me to have such a deep revelation of how much you love me that these lies will no longer have power over me. I accept the love that you have for me, and I am asking for an overflow of it. I want to be so filled with your love that it will make up for all the support that I am lacking from my family and the people who claim to be my friends.
No matter what other persecutions I endure, I commit myself to standing by the one friend that has never left me– and that friend is you. I stand by your word as my foundation and promise to turn to it and cling to it when life gets rough for me. Help me to never forget the pain of isolation, rejection and persecution. As I keep this pain with me, it will allow me to have a heart that is tender towards others who are suffering the same way.
I ask that you send me friends that love you and friends that I can lead to you. I accept your healing of my inner wounds and social insecurity and anxiety. In the meantime, give me the patience I need to endure this temporary trial of loneliness. Let this time be when I get to know you very deeply without the distractions that friendships in this life may bring.
I pray that you bless everyone that is hurting me right now. Give me the opportunity to show them what forgiveness really looks like. Give me the mind of Christ. I apply the armor of God to my spirit man and thank you for this protection. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.”
