Are you brokenhearted? The following prayer is a prayer for healing a broken heart. It is a wonderful feeling to be in love but to get hurt is painful. You will learn the steps to heal your heart.
Everyone at some point fall in love. God Himself is a passionate and intimate lover. He created mankind for a love relationship and deeper intimacy with Him. The Scriptures begin with love and ends in love. In fact, God is Love Himself, the essence and epitome of love. His fullest expression of love to us is when Jesus His Son died on the Cross to save man from eternal punishment and damnation and reconcile him for an eternal destiny with Him.
God has put love in the heart of man. Man longs for and is capable of receiving love and entering a relationship and commitment founded on love. It is love that binds man to God and man to his fellow being. Without love, nothing makes sense. What is Love?
God is Love and everything that He has done is established and grounded in love. Love means being captivated towards something or someone. Love makes you want to relate with, bless, and to be in union with another. Love is patient, kind, unselfish. When the whole world crumbles, only Love (God) remains.
Love is eternal. It is in a continuum. It should be mutual – give and take. God requires our undivided love and attention. He commands us to love Him above all with all our heart, body, and soul. He also admonishes us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Even to love our enemies. And the unloved and unloveable.
God wants us to love Him first before loving ourselves and others. When we do that, we will be able to receive His love and experience it and give it freely to others. When we have learned to love Him, then we can also move on to love another person.
Human beings are hopeless romantics so to speak. We love fairy tales and we love fancy love expressions. We long for a union with another being and to be into a covenantal relationship. Before that happens, we woo someone and get pursued. We date that person, spend time, exchange gifts, and love the person to the best of our ability. When we are ready to commit, we become steady lovers.
The Bible is complete with all the mushy love stories you can find and encounter. King Solomon recorded the Songs of Solomon for her beautiful maiden lover.
Adam and Eve
Abraham and Sarah
Isaac and Rebekah
Hosea and Gomer
Joseph and Mary
Days, months, and years pass by and we enjoy our relationship. Until one day, one wrong report, misunderstanding, disagreement, third party, or whatever reason, we separate and get hurt in the process.
The pain is too much to bear. Sleepless nights, confusion, lack of appetite to eat and move about. Distraction. Destruction. Lack of focus in your job or ministry. And the long list goes on.
How do we heal a broken heart? Can it be healed?
A resounding YES and it can happen the moment you choose to heal and make up your mind to seek your healing.
The first step towards healing is to approach God and seek His face, will, and ways. You may try meeting with God through your daily quiet time and devotion. Talk to God about what is in your heart. Release every pain to Him and submit to Him your heart, mind, emotions, will, and spirit.
It will be helpful if you will write down all that is troubling you, every pain, shame, grief, bitterness, and unforgiveness. When you have done that, you will notice the sense of lightening up in your heart.
It is important to release forgiveness to your ex-lover. Whatever he may or you have done, just forgive and ask for forgiveness. Also confess to God your own sins concerning the relationship that just transpired.
Then, think about the joyful moments that you have shared together. Be grateful for all the breakthroughs, triumphs, and joy as a couple.
Then, declare and speak a special prayer of blessing over the person whether you are facing him or not. Do not complain, blame, belittle, uncover, judge, criticize, and curse the other person.
Let time and love from God heal all wounds. Yes, it takes time to heal but definitely it will happen.
Ask God in prayer to release all trauma, shame, fear, pain, terror, and grief from your emotions, heart, will, body, mind, and spirit.
Then seal everything that God has done. You may do these steps daily until you feel released and set free. Meditate on the word of God and soak in Him.
Allow the love of God to embrace you in this period of pain and broken heart. You may play a
soft praise and worship in the background or an audio Bible on verses about emotional healing and God’s love.
God has a perfect plan for all of us. There will always be a reason why things happen the way they do. If you do not know what to do, just trust God and obey.
You may use this prayer for healing a broken heart –
“Heavenly Father, it is so painful now in my heart and spirit. The pain is just so unbearable. I love him/her and letting him go is difficult to do for me. But, I release him now to you knowing that You have a wonderful plan for both of us. Forgive me Lord from all my weaknesses and mistakes about this relationship that just ended. I also release forgiveness to him for ____________(mention the reasons). Lift off all the pain and trauma associated with this. Thank You for bringing him into my life. I did not regret the times we spent together, loving each other. I bless him to find your divine partner for him and to be protected from wrong relationships. Lead him to the right person meant for him. Bless him in spirit, soul, and body. Provide, protect, and heal him also. What you have done for me today, do for him also. Lead me to the one for me, Lord. I entrust my heart and life in Your hands. I love You and I allow Your love to heal all my wounds and bind me up. Make me ready to love and trust again, but this time to the right person for me. This I pray in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.”
When all has been prayed for and the pain remains, embrace the pain until it subsides and permanently heal by itself. Remember that Jesus Himself experienced the most painful ordeal known in the history of mankind. He can relate to you and you may identify with Him. Let Him heal you and love you. Love him back.
