Verses & Prayers for the Brokenhearted Woman
Saying a prayer this morning for anyone whose heart is / has been broken.
For those who have been told they were loved, accepted, chosen, safe only to have those making the promise change their mind. May we rest knowing that in God Almighty we are truly loved, accepted, chosen, safe forever and ever. God will never change his mind.
Understand, therefore, that the Lord your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands. (Deuteronomy 7:9)
A faithful God is absolutely dependable and can be leaned upon … Contrasted with human agents, who often break their pledges, the Lord faithfully keeps his covenant. (Commentary on Deuteronomy 7:9, Tyndale NLT Study Bible)
Don’t say, “I will get even for this wrong.” Wait for the Lord to handle the matter. The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?(Proverbs 20:22,24)
Lord, we ask for your justice today, and for you to help us forgive those who have hurt us. We are not perfect, and know you’re dealing with our missteps too; open our hearts to receive your loving discipline. Help us give all our pain to you, knowing all things are in your hands and that we can live in your joy and peace while we wait for you to work all things out for your good. May we never forget the glory of your wondrous love. In Jesus’s name, I pray. Amen.
