You are not alone.
Right now, many of us are navigating how we can re-establish connections with friends and family we haven’t seen in a while.
This process takes time, and it can seem frustrating. But even when we feel alone and disconnected, we can seek connection with God through prayer, and ask Him to help us reconnect with the people around us.
God is always with us, and He loves it when we seek out honest conversations with Him.
A Prayer for Connection
God, for many of us, this past year was filled with isolation. Despite technological advances, we watched relationships change and drift apart—and we grieved the loss.
But God, we know You can redeem what’s broken. You care about community, and You created us for connection. And, You also gave us Your Holy Spirit who understands what we are facing and prays on our behalf. So when we feel alone, please remind us that You are near—and that You’re not done working.
Re-establish our relationships and show us how to make meaningful connections—even if it feels uncomfortable at first.
Ultimately, we want our loneliness to lead us closer to You and to the people that You’ve called us to love and support. So take our isolation, our disconnection, our social anxiety, and our fear—and turn it into something beautiful that draws the world closer to You and to each other.
In Jesus’ name,
