Praying to have Best Friends

by TLG ()

Dear Lord,

I am so lonely. I am at a college across the country from my home and have no special group of friends here. I have acquaintances that I can talk to once in a while, but no place here where I belong or a group that I can connect with and be myself in. Please, Lord, I beg you.

Send me a new, close-knit family here. You know the importance of friendships and the depth of despair that comes with loneliness. Please, draw me out of this. Send me new people who welcome me and love me. People who are similar to me and who I fit well with. Help me know the power of true friendship, and soon. I need this so badly. I need people to talk to who can comfort me in my distress.

People who I know care about me and want me around. A group with whom I can have fun with and make amazing college memories that will last forever.

Please, Lord, hear my prayer. Listen to my heart and the earnestness I feel. The yearning. The passionate longing. And answer me, I pray. And soon. I have been waiting for so long. I am weak and I am tired. In my desperation, see my love for you and have pity on me. You are my friend, and I trust that you will send me earthly ones.

In Jesus’ name, I pray.

    I use to say this to my child at a young age. Don’t loose hope. You can get through this. Just keep saying: I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me. College can be overwhelming. I will keep you in prayer.
