Prayer: Heal my broken heart Lord

Look upon my heart O Lord and You shall see my hurt as happiness seems so fleeting and joy so far from me. Deep within me I feel the sorrow, as I think about the love I once had and the loss that I now feel. The tears, they come so easily as I feel this weight pushing down on me. It crushes me even as I look to my heart which feels like it has been crumbled and broken into a thousand different pieces.

Draw me near to You and show me how I can pick up the pieces O Lord. My life is a wreck, my spirit is a mess and now, more than ever before, I need to see Your divine love, Your divine hand guiding and leading me through the hardship and the pain of it all. I need to know that You are there with me, drawing me closer to You even as I feel the loneliness and sorrow gripping me tightly.

I know Your promise, You will be close to the brokenhearted and bind their wounds in Your love, hope and mercy for them. I call upon You now, O Lord, my God, to take hold of me in those promises. Take the pieces of my heart and put them back together, find the pieces that are still held prisoner by a love that is now gone, that is now no longer a part of my life, and free them for me, restoring it all in Your healing touch and Your boundless grace.

Then, though my heart still may bear scars, they will be a reminder of the love You have for me, and the hope that You have put it back together that it can hold something better as You lead me according to Your plan.

In the name of Your Son, my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.
