Have you been suffering from a hurting heart? Maybe you are in a fight with someone, or maybe there’s a distance, and it’s been going on for a long time. Or perhaps someone you know is hurting themself. It seems like there’s no way out, no solution.
Perhaps you’ve reached a point where you’re no longer interested in who’s right or wrong. You just want the relationship and people to heal. You hope for restoration. But there may be a lot of history, the struggle continues, and the hurt remains.
So you can choose to run away, harden your heart, or run to God. Is love is worth the wait? Let the Spirit be your comfort and your guide.
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.1 Peter 5:6-7
PRAYER FOR WHEN YOUR HEART HURTS
O merciful Lord,
I tremble. I’m weak. I barely have the strength to pray.
I just want to run away from it all. Part of me has been hurting for oh so long.
But my heart knows, and my spirit knows.
And my soul cries out “Go to the Lord!” In you I will find my refuge.
I struggle to understand. It so hard to accept the pain I feel in my heart.
For love lives there, and love will suffer for its beloved.
Here I am, O Lord! Here I am!
I have nothing left to give. I feel empty & abandoned.
So I seek you. I cling to you. In Jesus name I ask for your healing mercy.
I go to you as I have no other answer, no other hope
than Jesus Christ my Savior, my Lord.
