Heavenly Father, the holidays often magnify the sense of loneliness. We bring our prayer before Your loving throne.
For those who are alone or have lost loved ones, please magnify Your presence, comfort, and peace.
For those whose finances are lacking, please multiply the loaves and fishes to meet each and every need.
For those who feel surrounded by the enemy, please open their eyes to see Your angelic army surrounding them.
For those who are groping in darkness, shine Your light of truth and mercy.
For those who are homeless, thank You they can dwell forever in Your presence and have a wonderful eternal home with You.
For those who are afraid, remind them of Your might, power, and complete authority.
For those who are in difficult situations, shelter them in the shadow of Your powerful wings.
Heavenly Father, wrap them tenderly in Your love. Hold them close as You wipe every precious tear. Bless them Father to feel You in a new, real, and vibrant way. Place in their hearts the joy of You. Father, thank You that You are gentle with hurting hearts.
