After breaking up, we often describe what we feel as having a broken heart. We may become depressed and lose all interest in life. We may feel stress, we may feel abandoned and rejected and unloved and we lose hope of ever knowing how to be happy again. Here is a prayer to God with Bible verses to help you express your pain and need for God to heal your broken heart.
Prayer for Healing a Broken Heart
Dear God, I am hurting terribly right now. It’s so hard for me to remember ever being happy, and when I do, it hurts even more because of what I’ve lost. Here’s what makes me the saddest about what I’ve lost after this break up…
I am desperate to go back to the way things used to be. If there is still hope for this relationship, please give me guidance as to what to do to reach out to my ex. Here is one thing I have been thinking about trying___________________________
God, I need to figure out if I’m thinking rationally trying to reconnect with my ex. Help me to listen to you and to seek the advice of someone I trust before I act. Here’s one person I will ask for advice_________________________
If all attempts to reconnect with my ex fails, give me the strength I need to accept the finality of the breakup and the reality of my broken heart.
My friends and family mean well, but they don’t seem to know how to help me. They tell me that things aren’t that bad, that I should get up, go out, get even and enjoy myself. They tell me to look at all of the good things I still have in my life. They say that I’ll find someone else to love some day. But someday won’t help me today because my heart and spirit are crushed from loss and loneliness.
I do all right for a while, then something reminds me of my ex, and I fall apart all over again. Here are the things that I need your help with that most remind me of my ex _________________________________________
God, I don’t have anywhere else to turn but to you. I know you understand because it says in the Bible, “My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God? My tears have been my food day and night…” (Psalm 42:2, 3) “I am worn out from groaning; all night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears.” (Psalm 6:6, NIV)
I claim today the following promises for my broken heart:
“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18 )
“Weeping may remain or a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.” (Psalm 30:5)
“I will be glad and rejoice in your love, for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul. You have not handed me over to the enemy but have set my feet in a spacious place.” (Psalm 31:7,8)
“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” (Revelation 21:4)
Please give me the strength to get through each day as my heart slowly heals. Carry me in your arms of love. Give me a personal sign of your presence. Restore my ability to smile. Give me back my energy. Clear the fog from my mind. Bring vitality back to my body. Help me to regain interest in life. Show me how to reach out for help when I need it.
This is the hardest thing I’ve had to do, and I can’t possibly do it without your help. Help me to grow and gain wisdom from this experience. But most of all, help me not to give up on myself, on You or on love. I believe that You have created me to love and to be loved. Give me your courage to open my heart to the possibility of loving again, loving faithfully and joyfully and fully. In your name I pray. Amen.

You will grant me if it is what is best and in accordance with your Divine Will,
I lift up to You (name of person) who is in need of healing of his heart disease.
Hear my prayers and bring (name of person) into your loving presence.

and let his body organs function normally.
Touch his blood vessels and arteries and let his blood flow properly.
Bring healing to all his nerves, muscles and tissues,
especially those surrounding his heart.
Console him, ease his pain and suffering and restore him
to full health in body, mind and spirit.
May he find hope in his suffering and offer it as a share in your own passion.
Create a new heart in him and renew his life, loving Father.
And after he has been healed, may he be a witness of your
healing power and love and bring glory, honor and praise to you.
All these we pray in Jesus’ name through Mary with all the angels and saints.
“Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank you for the family that you have given us on this earth. They are the precious jewels you have entrusted to us. Lord, _____________ means so much to this family. You made him/her, and you know there is only one of _________________ out in the world.
______________was fearfully and wonderfully made in your image, Lord. He/She is a child of God that has a heart that is weak. We lift up this feeble heart, and we ask that you give it the power it needs right now.
The devil is trying to attack the ________________ family by hurting __________________ and taking away the joy of good health. We stand against this attack. We lift our shields of faith and we remember all the past victories of battles (that were not even as serious as this situation). We know that you can take this ugly turn in ____________’s health and use it for your glory.
We ask that you do that for the ______________ family right now. Give them a hope and a faith that is so strong that the prayers that come out of their lips (and hearts) will burst forth a new life in that weak heart. You said that the prayers of the faithful will be heard.
In the name of Jesus, I ask that you cover ___________________ in his/her hospital bed. Give _____________ comfort as you lay your loving, healing hands on his/her weak flesh. Revive what is weak and reverse the damage. Touch _________________’s heart to beat stronger than it ever has before. Let it beat with a new furvour for you. Until the day you take _________________ home, fill him/her with the Holy Ghost and the power of Christ’s heart.
Amaze the doctors and the nurses, as his/her family stands by and watches what they already know in their hearts is the miracle of God Himself. Make ___________’s heart be a beating testimony to the power of the most high, El Shaddai.
In Jesus’ precious name, may many come to your kingdom as a result of this trying time, Amen.”
