Prayer Request

I pray that you have mercy on me lord, as i am in a dark and lonely place. I often find myself outside the physical company of others. Though i love my family dearly and spend a great deal of my time and life with them, i would like to spend time with others my age. I have been raised, nurtured, and supported by my family. At 30 i desire for companionship and true friendship. There are a few whom i can expect to turn to me for advice, guidance, support, and laughter, but yet when i am alone and in need i often stand alone. I never turn away from someone in need and i don't do things to receive something in return. I genuinely enjoy helping and being there for others. It hurts my soul to know that just my family is there for me. I can't bring myself to care more for myself than for others, for i believe my blessings come by way of my actions and that which i do for others. Though i understand how the lives of others tend to keep them from acknowledging me, i can't help but wonder why i am never the one being consoled? Why lord am i always the after-thought? Why should i have to ask for others to be with me or include me, when i never forget to include them. I have grown tired of crying myself to sleep because the pain and burdens of my heart are many.
I am not taking my family for granted or asking for them to step back. I just want to feel love, affection, and comfort from others as well. Please hear my cry lord. Please place me where i need to be in order to enjoy the comfort and companionship of others. I have no male companion, i have no children, i have nothing to call my own. Thank you for the love and support of my family. With them alone i am blessed. I pray for guidance on the next chapter of my life. I ask that you continue to bless us and to keep us safe and healthy. Amen.

I would like to thank each of you for taking the time to respond to my prayer. Knowing others are willing to take the time to hear me truly warms my soul. It will not be forgotten. May each of you continue to be blessed.
