Prayer For The Brokenhearted
O Lord There is nothing but hurt left. I feel so broken, my heart is torn apart. All I can do is wait. Wait in this desolate place, And trust that somehow you can meet me. I feel too weak to go on. I am like a shell, living, breathing, yet so empty. All I can do is give up. Give up in this heartbroken time, And believe that somehow you can restore me. I find the sadness overwhelming, Like wave upon wave of emptiness All I can do is rest. Rest within your suffering and hope that through you - Your love, your forgiveness and your strength - I will wake to a new day A new dawn for my heart and my life. Amen
Dear Loving Heavenly Father, I come to you a broken-hearted sinner. I come to You in brokenness of heart, for I am beginning to understand what the Lord Jesus Christ actually did for me on the Cross. I realise that I am a sinner not only in the terrible things that I have been engaged in, but in my very heart, which is overburdened with sin. I now understand what it means in the Bible when it says there is no one that is good and that all man wants to do are bad things all the time. I see myself in that verse.
Lord, I am so sorry and I just want to repent and turn away from all the evil that I have been engaged in. My heart is broken to realise that the punishment that I deserve was placed on the Lord Jesus, and that He paid the price for my sins. All my sins have been washed away and He has even clothed me with His own goodness and righteousness.
Father God, I know that I am a sinful person and that I deserve nothing but hell separation from You for eternity and yet because of Christ my black soul has been made pure and clean.
Thank You Father. I believe and trust in Christ my Saviour and thank You that Jesus Christ died for us all.
Oh Father, I come to You and lay all my confusion and pain at Your feet, for my own precious child has betrayed my trust and caused my heart to break. I lay all my hurt and pain at Your feet.
Lord, they have been mesmerised by the fancies of this world and have renounced all the things they learned as a child, all the things that we taught them. Lord, they have not only turned their backs on us and walked away into the arms of the world, but they have rejected You and turned to a system that seeks to destroy them.
Oh Father, into Your hands I place my child. You promised that as we bring up a child in the way they should go, when they are old they will not depart from it. Father, I ask that in Your mercy and grace, You will convict them of their sin, draw them away from these ungodly desires and re-establish them in the gospel of truth.
Lord, You know that as a young child they were brought up in the things of the Lord. I ask that whatever it takes, You will convict them of their sin and bring them back into the truth of Your Word.
Fill my heart with Your peace I pray, as I continue to lift up my child to You. In Jesus' name,
O Lord my God, I come to You bereft in spirit with a heart that is breaking. My mind is in turmoil and I just do not understand all the turmoil that seems to be hitting me from all sides. You know Lord exactly the pain that is in my heart and the sadness and grief that I am going through and I come to You, my God, seeking Your blessed peace in my heart.
Heal my hurting heart and bind up the lacerations that have penetrated so deeply into my soul, for You alone are my hope, You alone are my strength and stay. I have nothing and no one left but You Lord.
Bind up my fragmented heart I pray, as You have promised. It says in Your Word that You came to heal the broken hearted and to free those that were entrapped in the emotional turmoil of their lives. Lord, that is my position now and I trust in You alone.
I give You my fragmented heart and pray for Your blessed peace, Your gracious peace, Your perfect peace that passes all human comprehension. Take me as I am Lord and fill me anew with your love and grace, for only through You can I be renewed in spirit, only in You can I rest in safety.
Thank You O Lord my God,
How can I face the future Lord, for my heart is broken. The love of my life has grown weary of our relationship and has walked away from me and I am heart-broken Lord.
Why did this have to happen? I thought that You had brought us together. I thought that our love for each other had been made in heaven. But now they have gone and my heart is broken.
I pray that You will help me to face up to what has happened and not to hanker for something that might have been. Help me to look forward to the future and not regret the past. And today Lord now, I put my trust in You for I want You to guide my path, for I know that when I follow my own heart it always ends in distress.
Lead me Lord. Lead me in the way that I should go. Heal my fractured heart and I pray that instead of bitterness being the fruit of this experience, that You will bring beauty for brokenness and replace despair with Your joy. Into Your hand I commit my life, my future, my relationships, and myself.
Draw me ever closer into secure communion with Yourself. Thank You that You really do wipe away every tear from our eyes. I love You Lord,
I am not going to fight Your hands, for they are the ones that hold me at my weakest. My God, I will be still as You work this situation out for me. I await You patiently.
I trust You, You will heal me, Majestic King and my suffering WILL end today. Help me to FULLY experience Your love and Holy PRESENCE as You make all things work together for my good. In Jesus' Holy name, Amen!
Lord, please heal my broken heart. Fill me with the peace and joy I know can only come from You during this hard time. Walk closely beside me during my journey to healing and recovery that I know is possible through Your power alone. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
Lord, my heart is so heavy this morning. My sorrow is so great. In the midst of all this pain I am feeling, I am so thankful that you are God and I am not. I am thankful that you are all-powerful, that I do not have to hold it all together or be strong for everyone in my life. You are my strength. You are strong for my loved-ones when I can't be. I am thankful you are all-knowing that you know the outcome to this misery I am facing. That I don't have to figure out what the next week or month or year looks like, because you have it all held together. And you promise my feet won't slip. Help me, Lord! Strengthen me for today. Give me daily bread, that I can be sustained through this heartache. Thank you God that you are close when I am hurting. Thank you God for the comfort, grace and joy that only you can give. Hold me up today. In your name I pray, Amen.
