An Advent Prayer For The Lonely

 

Just as the miraculous advent of Jesus’ birth is often overshadowed by pretty lights, decorated tress, and bow-topped presents, the lonely are also overlooked at a time when friends and families are celebrating. My heart is tender toward the lonely this Christmas, and my prayer is that the Lord will prompt our hearts to reach out to them in a special way this advent season.

An Advent Prayer for the Lonely:

Father, it is hard to feel alone during a season that celebrates togetherness. But I know that the real reasons for the season isn’t about being with other people, but about drawing close to YOU. Help me as I grieve my loneliness to know that You look on me with tenderness and empathy. You’ve known lonliness too — on the cross. You bore my sins and the sins of the world — alone — so that I might drink from the well of your salvation. Thank you that I am never really alone, because i have You with me always. Help me feel and know that precious truth today and always. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
