Prayer to Get over a Break Up

Turning to God when Your Heart Breaks

Turning to prayer to get over your break up sounds so simplistic, but God can provide you with some of the best comfort you will ever receive. Anyone who has been through a break up knows the devastation it can cause, even if you are the one ending the relationship. It's okay to cry and grieve for the loss of something special, and God wants to be there for you when you're hurting.  He wants to provide us with comfort and love during the hardest of times.

Here is a simple prayer to get over your break up that you can say to ask God to be your comfort during this difficult time:

Lord, thank you for being you and for your willingness to be here with me during this time. It's been difficult lately with this break up. You know that. You've been here watching me and watching us together. I know in my heart that if it was meant to be it would have happened, but that thought doesn't always mesh with how I feel. I'm angry. I'm sad. I'm disappointed.

You are the one I know I can turn to for comfort, Lord. Provide me with reassurance that this was the right thing for me in my life, as it is right now. Lord, show me that there are so many great things in my future, and offer me solace in the thought that you have plans for me and that one day I will find the person that fits with those plans.  Assure me that you have my best intentions in mind, and while I don't know what all of those intentions are, this wasn't a part of them.  That one day you'll reveal someone new that will make my heart sing.  Allow me the time to get to that point of acceptance.

Lord, I just ask for your continued love and guidance during this difficult time, and I pray for the patience of others as I work through my feelings. Every time I think of the happy times, it hurts.  When I think of the sad times, well, that hurts, too.  Help those around me understand that I need this time to heal and work through that pain.  Help me understand that this, too, shall pass for me.  That one day the pain will become less, and remind me that you'll be there right with me the whole time.  Though I may have difficulty letting go, I pray that you surround me with people that help me through and lift me up in prayer, in love, and in support.

Thank you, Lord, for being more than just my God in this moment. Thank you for being my Father. My friend. My confidante, and my support.

In your Name, Amen.
