#40WordPrayer on ISOLATION
I was silent and still; I held my peace to no avail;
my distress grew worse, my heart became hot within me.
— Psalm 39:2–3a
Being alone is not always lonely
but for those times when the isolation is real,
God, make yourself known
in a stranger’s act of kindness,
in a friend’s word of presence,
in my community’s offer of hospitality,
and in the promise of your steadfast love.
But there are also times when I do feel isolated. People can be around or not, and somehow I have still felt disconnected. Be it something I was going through emotionally, the work situation in which I found myself, or just one of those funks that we can each go through, I have experienced loneliness and isolation.
