Prayer for a Broken Heart



Thank you for visiting our

Prayer for a Broken Heart page.


We extend a hand of friendship to you

as you go through this difficult time.


No one can truly know the pain you are in.
Yet I encourage you to try praying a prayer for a broken heart in order to bring some comfort to you and remind you that you are not alone.


There are two prayers on this page, and
there are also loving thoughts that are included after the prayers.


Take note that we also have:

Inspirational Comfort
Prayer for Emotional Pain
Prayer for Despair


"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit."

Psalm 34:18 NIV 1984



Sometimes God seems far away but his Word promises us
he is close to us at this time of emotional pain.


When your heart is broken, your dreams are destroyed and your mind is confused. There can be a deep feeling of being alone.
Even when there are crowds of people around,
the feeling of being alone invades and separates.



Prayer for a Broken Heart:


Help Me, God! Help Me!

PAIN engulfing me, sharp, dull, continual, ever-present, ever-aching.

Will life ever be normal again?

Help me, God. Help me, please help me!

I can't hang on much longer.

Amen

Another Prayer for a Broken Heart:


The Pain is TOO Much to Bear

The pain is so intense

It's too much to carry, Lord.

I want to give it to you

But I don't know how.

I have tried to lift it up

To you

But it falls back down on me.

It knocks me to the ground.

It pins me to the ground.

Save me, Lord.

Save me, Jesus.

I wrote those two prayers during a horrible time in my life when my heart was shattered and my dreams were destroyed.

I thought that would be the worst time in my life.

It wasn't.

The Healing Process


If we live long enough, we will experience a broken heart.


In extreme cases, it takes a year or two to get out of the ditch and see the light of day. If you keep holding on to God, you will get out of the ditch. You will become strong again.

Here are some suggestions to consider:


  1. Give yourself grace. Pamper yourself more than usual. Add extra sleep or give yourself extra treats.
  2. Remind yourself that healing will probably be slow.
  3. Ponder how big and powerful God really is. He is able to help you. He wants to help you.
  4. Stay close to God - even if you just rest in his arms and watch T.V.
  5. Give all your strength to protecting yourself against choosing sin as a comfort.
  6. Compliment and encourage yourself as you refuse the sin invitations that come into your life.
  7. Be wise in choosing your companions.
  8. Stay in church or get started going to church.
  9. Consider writing your own Prayer for a Broken Heart or writing your thoughts in a journal.




The healing may be slow.

Sometimes it may be imperceptible, but it is happening.



Sometimes the best thing you can do is give yourself grace and pamper yourself some.

Be easy on yourself on things that aren't that important, and pray that God will help you to be firm on yourself in avoiding sin solutions.

Give all your strength to protecting yourself so that you do not fall into sin.

Don't allow the comforts of sin to be your comforts.




Be wise in choosing your companions.

Your companions will either encourage you to sin or encourage you to follow God. Your friendship choices will reap consequences.

When you are weak, it is easy to fall into sins
that you would otherwise reject.



Consider writing your own Prayer for a Broken Heart. Sometimes expressing the pain - and realizing that you are allowed to express the pain - helps.
