Where to find scriptural help, when lonely:
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Keep your lives free from the love of money
and be content with what you have,
because God has said: “Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”
We pray, O Christ, that you will fill our hearts with Your presence and ease the loneliness which visits us in stressful times. We look to you for help and remember your promise to always be with us. Amen
