Return to 7 Daily Prayers to Get You Through The Week
Are you brokenhearted? We have 2 prayers for you (1) is a prayer for healing a broken heart due to past relationship and (2) a prayer to heal a broken heart from unfulfilled dreams and desires.
It is a wonderful feeling to be in love but to get hurt is painful. 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
Ruth and Boaz
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.
You can even get your heart broken when things don’t go your way. This happens between you and God. Yes, we do get heart broken when we have hopes and dreams that are not God’s will.
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, unforgiveness and unfulfilled dreams and desires. When you have done that, you will have a clear picture of why you are heart broken.
It is important to release forgiveness to your past relationships. Whatever he or she 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 to pray for yourself or you can read it and then pray it for someone you know who may need this prayer–
“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 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.”
Here is the prayer for healing a broken heart for unfulfilled dreams and desires.
Abba Father, I know that you plan is perfect. What I hoped and dreamed for didn’t turn out the way that I thought it would. I’ve been waiting for such a long time for my dreams, desires and what has been prophesied over me to come to pass. God I am tired of waiting and I am beginning to lose hope and feel broken hearted because of this whole ordeal. Lord I ask that you would heal every wound in my soul for these unfulfilled dreams. Mend my broken heart and bring me back to wholeness. Renew my trust and hope in your plan even though I may not know what it is. I use my will to have faith in your goodness, in Jesus Name, Amen

What others are saying around the website
When God promises us something, He can be counted on to keep it. I had a dream where God promised to heal me in all areas; the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Deep in my heart I believed Him.
Jesus said he was sent to heal the broken hearted. This he has done for me. Most of my life I was mentally abused. I was told by my father and later by my husband that I was stupid and crazy. They said I couldn’t do anything right. I was even compared to the neighbor’s kids who were the same age as I. I was asked:
“Why can’t you be like them?”
It wasn’t good enough that I got on the honor roll. Why couldn’t I do better? I studied and tried so hard to make it. I didn’t even make the honor roll.
I could never please my father. There was only one time he was ever proud of me. I had won the American Legion Medal in the eighth grade. My Dad was in the hospital at the time. Nine years later after I got married, he was in the hospital again, dying of cancer. My husband went to see him. My Dad told him that he wished he would have treated me better and that I was the best of the bunch. I was surprised that my husband even told me that. He treated me like my dad did.
The statement my dad made of regretting that he didn’t treat me better, came a long way to heal my broken heart. It helped me to forgive him. It showed me that it wasn’t just my imagination that I was treated badly. As a good consequence, I was able to forgive him but not right away. Even today, when the devil attacks me by telling me how bad I was treated, I remember that. It keeps me in line with a forgiving spirit.
Since I felt I couldn’t do anything right, I decided not to do anything at all when I could get out of it. I became a perfectionist. I set high goals for myself, knowing I would fail. This way I could say my dad was right about me. I was just no good.
My mother wasn’t satisfied with me either. I couldn’t even make a bed right to please her. She would do it herself instead of taking the time to make me do it until I got it right. It was easy to get out of doing anything. My Dad cursed and swore at the family, my mother included. I didn’t see until now that she was hurting inside, too. She developed a martyr complex.
When my dad wasn’t swearing at us, he gave us all the silent treatment for days at a time. This was often worse than his verbal anger. I walked around on tiptoes so as to not stir him up again. It wasn’t pleasant. My siblings had their own way of dealing with it.
I was curious about life and quite adventuresome. When I tried to get close to my mother and discuss things with her, she wouldn’t listen. She wanted to know why I was always arguing with her. I learned to keep my thoughts to myself.
My parents never showed me any love; any hugs or kisses. I was starved for affection. Between my parents and my church, I came to the conclusion that God was just like them. He was stern, unforgiving and unloving. He was ready to punish me at the least mishap. I pulled myself into a shell. I added brick by brick to build a wall around me so no one could get close enough to hurt me. I couldn’t stand rejection
I became the god of my little make believe world. I buried my head in my books where people were always nice to each other. My dream world was much better than the real world was. Outwardly I was doing what normal people did, like dancing, roller skating, going to the movies and so on. I pretended people were different than they were. I could never take them at face value and just accept them as they were. I wasn’t accepted so why should I accept others?
My real life was in my own universe. I pretended all the time that life was different than it actually was. I had my make-believe playmates. They couldn’t hurt me. I could not and refused to face reality. I lived a lie. No one but no one ever knew! I was a good actor. I smiled on the outside while I cried on the inside.
I only say all of this to show you what a mess I was. I know there are others who have had similar experiences or even worse. What God has done for me since the year 2000 when I had the dream, and is still in the process of doing now in 2006, is hard for me to believe. Now, at the age of seventy-five, I accept it. It is making me happier every day. God has healed my broken heart and set me free! He opened my blind eyes. I have been delivered from the bondage of my own prison. I praise the Lord everyday. It is never too late.
I have been able to forgive my parents and realize maybe they did the best they could. I’ll never know just what kind of life they had. My past is where it belongs; in the past. It doesn’t hurt any more. I bring it up, hoping maybe that someone reading this will see that God can do the same for them. I just hope they don’t wait as long as I did to receive the new life God wants for all of us.
I see now that my parents did teach me many good things which I will talk about at another time. My life wasn’t as bad as I made it out to be. I just developed a bad attitude. So many hurting people and I was one of them. If I can help just one person, it will be worth all the problems I had faced for such a long time.
I will write another article about how I could forget the negative and concentrate on the positive. All this is a big part of my emotional and mental healing. God is breaking down my brick wall.
I Praise Him that I am still a work in progress. That is why we have Christmas, celebrating the birth of Jesus. He has come to fulfill the prophecy of Isaiah 61:1 â€œAnd he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Isaiah, And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me; because He has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent me to heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him, (Luke 18, 19 & 21)
And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears. Jesus is the same today as he was yesterday. God’s Word still holds true. I heard the same preaching in this generation as they did way back then. This preaching was for me. I was poor in spirit, broken hearted, captive to my imaginations. I was blind for I couldn’t see the truth. I was set free of all these prisons, including my self-made ones. God is the God of promises.
We serve a wonderful God. God bless you.
