Dear God,

In my periods of being alone, I ask that you please do not neglect me and leave me to my own devices. I know that, as a human being, I need time alone in order to regenerate and build my strength. However, sometimes loneliness gets to be too much.

Please hold me close and remind me that you are by my side. Lift me through this period and on to better things.


The Bible repeatedly tells us that The Lord will never leave our side. Sometimes, this is all we need to remember. And, sometimes, being alone gives us a chance to focus on ourselves. A moment of peace away from the hubbub of the modern-day world to reconnect with God.


Psalm 34:18

being alone bible verse

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

In the moments when you’re alone, what do you often think about? Even when you’re surrounded by so many people, it’s still easy to feel alone. In these moments of loneliness, remember that the Lord is there for you. 

He is familiar with loneliness. When the Father abandoned Jesus on the cross, He felt the most alone of all. 

We must take steps to combat loneliness. Loneliness is seen as a negative thing, but God can change it such that it works for our good.

Psalms 27:10

bible verse about being alone

Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.

We often neglect God because we are so busy. God can speak to us and receive our complete attention when we are by ourselves. Scripture says that Jesus sought out areas of solitude to spend time with the Father. Jesus sought seclusion so that He may discover the will of the Father for his life.

In times when we’re alone, we should seek after Him. In these moments of peace, we can properly discern. There is nothing to cloud our judgments for as long as we give our full hearts to him. 

We receive a different level of guidance and wisdom when we are most close with the Lord and when we can hear him clearly.

Luke 5:16

bible verse for being alone

But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.

Your entire heart and soul will be at peace when you are alone with the Lord.

The most valuable message we learn from Scripture is that God is always with us, even when we feel alone. Since God is there and communicating with us through Scripture and prayer, we are never completely alone. He is present in our hearts and minds.

Luke 6:12

being alone bible verse

In these days he went out to the mountain to pray, and all night he continued in prayer to God.

Jesus assures you that He will always be by your side and that He will be present within you through the power of The Holy Spirit.

You might feel alone and unprotected in so many difficult circumstances in life, yet God will always offer you aid. Our God is the God of love and He will stick by you, protect you, and lovingly cater to your needs even when people closest to your heart turn away.

There will never be a time when God will leave you on your own as long as you choose to be in His presence.

Psalms 147:3

being alone bible verse

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

God makes our weaknesses apparent in loneliness and works to correct them. As we wait in isolation, God will test and develop our patience. In our solitude, our flaws, insecurities, and defense mechanisms are revealed, which God may then use to strengthen our character.

God provides shelter for those who are lonely. It is a place where He can work within us and a place that can be really helpful for us. In the home He builds for us, we are never alone. While God transforms us, He will never leave us.

Psalm 73:23

bible verse for being alone

Nevertheless, I am continually with you; you hold my right hand.

Whether or not we consciously seek it, we all find ourselves alone with God at some point. We cannot achieve solitude with the Lord through our own willpower, which is why we make space to ask Him to calm our thoughts and give us concentration. Invite God into your life while you are alone. Even when you don’t ask for Him, He is present at each and every moment of every day. You can clearly sense His loving presence when you ask Him to be with you.
