I do understand loneliness.

However, have you considered that you might be praying for the wrong things? Instead of praying for a man, or a new relationship to ease the loneliness, what has helped me is to work toward acceptance of where I am right now.

There is so much joy in life, so much to be grateful for and humbled by. What struck me about my situation was that wishing for more began to feel unnecessary. In fact, it was robbing me of what was good.

There is such peace in being able to say "I'm good right now, really really good"

Plus there is so much confidence to be gained from knowing that I can carry the bad and enjoy the good.

Just sharing my story
