Prayer for a Broken Heart


A prayer for a broken heart

(a prayer to help heal someone who is heartbroken)

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.
