Prayer When Love Has Failed

Dear Lord, I have been hurt very deeply by someone who I thought truly loved me, and we wanted to spend our lives together, but they have caused me deep pain and left my emotions in tatters. Lord, at times I have felt that my heart would break and have been finding it very difficult to come to terms with the fact that love has failed.

Restore my brokenness I pray, and send Your comfort and strength into my soul, as I try to pick up the pieces of my brokenness and begin to face the future once again. Lord, I know that I cannot do this in my own strength, but only as You carry me in Your loving arms and pour Your healing and comfort into my broken soul. Help me to leave this disappointing time of sadness behind and look to a future with fresh hope and expectation, knowing that in You is the fullness of joy and from You alone comes the only true love that can fully satisfy the heart that is hungry for love.

I pray that I may allow the healing process of Your love to begin to mend my brokenness, so that in Your time and in Your way You would bring the person of Your choice into to my life, for You are the Lord of Love, and have given us the capacity to love others and to be loved by them. Help me to pray, "Thy will be done," in this area of my life and teach me how to love You as I ought, and give me the capacity to love others in the same way that You have loved me. In Jesus' name I pray,
