Father, Your Word tells us we are better together, that it’s not good for us to be alone. You have made us with the desire for company and community. But there are those who are now more isolated than ever. We pray for the lonely, the isolated, and the vulnerable. Please be especially near to them. May they feel Your presence and know they are not alone. Put them on the hearts of Your people who can reach out to them in love. As they study Your Word with us, give them special grace to flourish in unexpected ways, so they can know you better and receive the peace You promise to those who keep their minds on You. In the name of Jesus we pray, amen.
