7. A Prayer to Believe Broken Hearts Can Be Renewed
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. – Psalm 147:3
Father, you are truth. Your words are healing balm, reminding me that you even raise to life what is dead! Not only can what is hurting or broken be renewed in your power, but even what we didn’t expect can be generated by your goodness. There is no end to your ability to love beyond measure.
Today, I lift up my prayer of belief in your ability to heal broken hearts. I join with the psalmist, praying “Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit” (Psalm 51:12).
Scripture shows us the way...that we are made new by our faith, we put on new selves, we are constantly being renewed. And I believe—that those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength.
Prompt me, God, to be inspired to move in ways that fulfill your vision. Don’t let me take the course alone, in my own hands. Give me the excitement of knowing you promise to wipe every tear, and that you have great plans for me. Today, I pray with gratitude that you heal the brokenhearted. Let it be so, and praise be to You!
In Jesus’ name, amen.
Beloved, God sees every facet of your heart. In fact, he’s already mending the broken pieces. Prayer is your lifeline to hold onto, as you wait for his miraculous transformation. Prayer keeps your heart open to his healing.
Pray continually, and believe... that broken hearts are made whole in the Healer’s hands.
