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. 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.

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. 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.
