Prayer For Healing A Broken Heart

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 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.”

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

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. Through reading and meditating on His word He will heal your heart.

  1. I so appreciate all the encouraging comments in the article and from readers. My sweet daughter has gone through a lot in the last month and it’s been hard for all of us to deal with. She has two beautiful boys, and was surprised to discover she was pregnant again, and it was a girl. When she went for her 4 mos check up the dr discovered the baby had passed away. Then, she was one of 2 finalists for a big promotion at her job. She had already been doing the job, traveling, developing curriculum, timelines, getting proper certifications, only to find out the other person got the job even though that person had none of the qualifications. I feel so angry, so upset that everything she has worked for and dreamed about has just been taken away from her. I don’t doubt the sovereignty of God, but I am wondering why pray in the first place. What will happen will happen anyway. My heart is broken for my child, and I am having a hard time being supportive and encouraging to her and keeping my own feelings to myself..

    1. Jo, thank you for your honesty. There is no scripture that I can give you that will take away the pain and doubts that you are feeling right now. All we can do is pray for you. It is difficult going through hard times to pray especially when you feel like you’ve been punched in the stomach. The scripture says when we don’t know what to pray the Spirit of God makes intercessions for us. Jesus is in heaven also interceding on your behalf. We pray the Comforter will guide you daily in wisdom to find the right words for your daughter. That you will both be healed from this trauma and loss. That God will restore your heart and hope. We know better days are ahead and your latter will be greater than your former. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t grieve over the past but know that it does get better as the days, weeks, months and years roll by. Sorry for your loss. You grand daughter is in the presence of Jesus…this is your reassurance and hope and one day you get to meet her. God bless you.

  2. I am grateful for the prayers of the broken-hearted. I am believing God for total healing, so I can be ready to receive what He has for me. My ex fiancé waited until we were in marriage counseling to reveal to me that he wasn’t attracted to women. He had several sexual encounters with men, and waited 2 years to tell me because he didn’t want to mess up his Army career. The day after his retirement date is when he told me. I need God to heal me so I can truly forgive and be restored.

  3. I found you website by accident at the end of May 2017. My daughter told me to view the Hebrew calender and some how I found this site. I havd been reading the prophetic word every month since and feel each month has something for me. Unfortunately, I did not follow all the steps in May, soon as I found the site, I became ill and did not read May again so of course I forgot what it said. I do feel like I’m going through a transition. I was praying for a breakthrough that my ex-husband and I be reunited in marriage. In the June prophetic word, it said June was a good time for marriages. Well he married someone else in June and even though through prayer I was travailing, (not know what it was at the time) but soon figured I was in a spiritual warfare battling for restoration of my family. Although I did not win the battle, deep in my heart I feel the war is not over, no matter what it looks like. Before this tear God showed me many dreams and visions of our marriage and the work we have to do in His name. I am asking God for His guidance on what to pray for. I would like to truly thank you for the monthly prophetic word as well as the prayers listed on the site. I feel I have truly been blessed by this website. Thank you

    1. Meme, what you must ALWAYS remember is that you are loved by God. You are APPROVED in God’s eyes. You are not less than You are enough. Accept the love of God as it fills you to overflow. Release the pain, anger, hurt, bitterness and unforgiveness and allow God to fill all those empty unfulfilled places with His love. The prophetic word was correct it just did not manifest in the way that you thought it would. If you look at this month the prophetic word says PECULIAR blessings. That means your blessings are not going to appear in the way that you are expecting them to appear. Remember God’s word says “no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly”(Psalm 84:11) That means, even though you don’t feel like it, God has you exactly where He wants you. Now you just need to let go of “how” He is going to restore you and accept how He decides to do it….without your husband. You have to let go of the old to embrace the new. You are loved with an everlasting love and precious in His sight (Jeremiah 31:3). Allow your heavenly Father to shower you with His comfort, peace, love and compassion and pray that your heart will be open to receive the peculiar blessing that He has for you. You may find out that what you thought was the worse thing that happened to you turned out to be the BEST thing that happened to you. God bless. Praying for you.
