You know exactly how and why a heart breaks. Mixed with feelings of anger, frustration, bitterness, or sadness, no matter what it feels, it hurts. I lift up all who have or who are experiencing a broken heart. Lord, I pray for healing.May You reach down and comfort those people. Bring peace to their lives. Please restore them Lord, help them to mend their hearts, and not just patchwork where seams can be weakened and subject to breaking again. Mend their hearts perfectly, whole, new. May You help them to regain confidence, trust, and the ability to forgive. May Your will be done in Jesus’ name AMEN!
Heavenly Father, there is a pain implanted in my heart that doesn’t seem to go away. It has crushed me, it aches, I can no longer bear it.
This pain of the past consumes my thoughts daily. It hurts so much, Father, these tears that fall long to see joy once again. Give me peace in my heart, please, I’m crying out to You: hear my prayer.
He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds. Psalm 147:3

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.
