Dear Jesus you know the loneliness of my heart. You know my emptiness of soul. Give me a healing touch when my heart cries with tears of desperation. 
My helplessness finds shelter In the shadow of your mercy. I feel as if I am a nobody, with nobody smiling at my face anymore. No friends can understand my struggles.
I know there is a moment when I feel abandonment and you seem to be far off from me. But I believe that in your care I will see light. My tears of sadness will be transformed into the laughter of happiness.
Help me never to give up hope. Heal the memory of my hidden wounds of the past and the pain of the present moment. Amen.
