Good morning another day to tell the Lord thank you. God is faithful! He always promises to heal our broken hearts first, and then bind up our wounds. Why? I believe that one of the biggest causes concerning why we have wounds is because we have broken hearts before God binds up our wounds. Let God see if there is any brokenness in our hearts that causes us wounds, pains, and hurts to live a victorious life on earth. “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” (Psalm 147:3)
James 5:13 tells us “A prayer offered in faith makes a sick person well.” God our Heavenly Father cares about our whole being – body, soul, spirit. Whether we need physical, emotional, or spiritual healing – He knows and He cares. Let us pray in God’s will that what He complete is ours. Does God want your heart to be broken? No, God do not want your heart broken, and He will most assuredly surround you with His everlasting love as you wrestle through it. God is mighty and able to use even grief to refine you and accomplished His great purposes. “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28) God’s Scriptures in the Holy Bible are full of His promises for your broken heart.

Dear Heavenly Father,
I need You. My heart is a mass of broken pieces and I do not know how to find hope and peace. I know my sadness is not Your desire, but the pain is so real to me. It hurts me deeply. Lord God, I sometimes wonder if there is something wrong with me. Please shield my heart from pain, and people, and Satan the enemy of my heart, mind, soul, and spirit. Help me to know You, and to never forget that You are the lover of my heart, soul, mind, and spirit and that You are stronger than any storm. Please Lord God, keep my heart and fill it with Your love, joy, and peace. Lord, forgive me for the times when I try to navigate the broken path of life on my own. When my heart is heavy with burdens, please forgive me, give me Your strength, and remind my soul to trust in You and to lean not to my own understanding regarding your plan and purpose for me. Lord, please heal my broken heart and fill me with the peace and joy I know only come from You during this challenging time in my life. Today, I choose You. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
