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.

Prayer for healing a broken relationship

We’ve been tossed by the seas of resentment and hurt,
And the damage has torn us apart.
O Lord, help us rescue the love we once shared
To mend each damaged feeling and part.

We’ve been pulled in different directions,
Swayed far away from the path.
O Lord, may your light draw us close again,
To find all that we shared in the past.

We have abandoned the love that once grew,
Let it fail, watched it wither and bend.
O Lord, as we open our lives back to you,
Come and tend to our union as friends.

We have just one hope to turn this around,
So Jesus we fall at your feet.
Let hope rise to draw us together as one,
Your healing is all that we seek.

Prayer for Strength and Guidance

(a prayer for those going through a difficult time)

O Lord,

I give you my worries and concerns and I ask for your guidance. You see it all, the outer circumstances, the inner turmoil. I know that you understand my life, that sometimes my heart weighs heavy with trouble. Right now I lay all these things before you. I breathe in, safe in the knowledge that I am held by grace. I breathe out, knowing that I am held secure in your arms. And I wait on you. For you are all truth, you are overflowing love, you are a beacon of hope and a fortress of faith.

Lord, I choose to be attentive to your voice. May I be alert to your Spirit’s guiding as I journey onwards with you.

I love you Father. Amen.
