Heavenly Father,

Thank You for this beautiful day and for Your tender mercies over my life. Father, I come to You today with a burden in my heart. I am going through so much pain and my heart hurts. 

On my own, I have tried everything I can to get rid of the pain of heartbreak, but all of my efforts have proved futile. 

Lord, I ask that You mend my broken heart with Your mighty power and heal me of this pain.

There’s a popular saying that goes, “he that wears the shoes knows where it hurts.” The same applies to whatever pain you’re facing now.

If you’re currently dealing with a heartbreak, you’re the only one who can tell others how you feel and how much it hurts. Unfortunately, telling others about your heartbreak will not mend your broken heart because humans can only help you to a level.

They can only offer you temporary solutions, but there’s someone you can talk to and he takes away your heartache forever; God.

If you’re brokenhearted right now, there’s no need to sulk anymore. Go to God in prayer and pour out your heart to him. He heals the brokenhearted and he is waiting for you.

The book of Psalm 147:3 says:

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”

When people are heartbroken from bad relationships, they can do a ton of things without thinking it through. Some go as far as making terrible decisions they will regret later because of the state of their hearts.

If you know someone who is brokenhearted from a relationship, it is important that you mention them to God in your prayers.

 Do not think that being heartbroken from a relationship is very normal and it does not concern God. Actually, it does.

Say this prayer as much as you can until your friend’s or loved one’s heart is completely healed.

The book of Lamentations 3:22 says:

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.”
