View all Prayers: Prayer for a Broken Heart

O Lord, there is nothing but hurt left.

I feel so broken, my heart is torn apart.

All I can do is wait.

Wait in this desolate place,

And trust that somehow you can meet me.

I feel too weak to go on.

I am like a shell, living, breathing, yet so empty.

All I can do is give up.

Give up in this heartbroken time,

And believe that somehow you can restore me.

I find the sadness overwhelming,

Like wave upon wave of emptiness

All I can do is rest.

Rest within your suffering and hope that through you –

Your love, your forgiveness and your strength –

I will wake to a new day

A new dawn for my heart and my life.

Amen.
