PRAYER FOR LONELY RUNS
“Jesus, Friend of a lonely heart,” by St. Faustina
Jesus, Friend of a lonely heart, You are my haven, You are my peace. You are my salvation, You are my serenity in moments of struggle and amidst an ocean of doubts.
You are the bright ray that lights up the path of my life. You are everything to a lonely soul.
You understand the soul even though it remains silent. You know our weaknesses, and like a good physician, You comfort and heal, sparing us sufferings — expert that You are.
