Prayer: A Sad Heart

A Prayer Against Sadness

Peaceful, Loving Father, I humbly ask that you heal this ache in my heart, Oh Lord. Allow me to find that joy that I once knew. The sadness of my heart consumes me but I will not give in, for I am stronger than the mind games the devil tries to play on me.

Psalm 107:19-20  Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.  He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

Psalms 30:2   O LORD my God, I cried unto you, and you has healed me.

 

I will not give up

Even though I am hurt and the pain lingers on each day, I will not give up, for the battle is already won. This sadness sickens my soul. These tears that hit my pillow at night longs to see happiness once more and I pray that You will open up a way for me.

Psalms 118:17  I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.

Isaiah 41:10  Fear not, for I am with you. Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes, I will help you, yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.

 

Give me Strength

I need You, Lord, now more than ever. This sadness in my heart craves to find that wonderful joy only You can give and that peace that passes all understanding. My heart cries out to You. Give me strength, oh gentle Savior. In Jesus’ name, love, joy, peace and happiness will follow me wherever I go and this sadness within me will be destroyed, Amen and Amen!

  1. I am a Christian of little faith. I try to be good and follow my heart, but it has led me to do some “not so good things” in my life. I am a 34 year old male who has been homeless for a month. I became homeless when my EX had me put in jail (long story) for 3 weeks. I lost everything. My love, my daughter, my home and my job.
    Luckily I was a able to get my job back and have a home lined up soon. But I hit more walls on my path to recovering (an even longer story.) But the reason for this comment from me is because I feel I have suffered a great loss for the past 30 years. Parents divorce, sexually assaulted as a kid, drugs, death of a girlfriend in my arms, lost connection with family, leading to today…I have extreme depression, paranoia, anxiety, possible P.T.S.D. from everything that has happened.
    I try reaching out to GOD, I talk aloud on long nature walks explaining my feelings and my heartbreak asking for guidance, a smoother path, happiness, etc etc etc but it seems like I am unheard. I hear my own voice talking back to me asking myself questions, just to make it easier to talk aloud. I probably come off as schizophrenic but it’s never negative towards me. I’ve used that inner voice since I was a kid.
    But it feels like I’ve never been heard, ignored even. The things that are making me survive on the streets, I know are from my own strengths. The voice, also my own.
    Some would say that’s GOD working through me, than why a lifetime of pain? What am I doing wrong? Do I need to read a bible? Pray more? Beg for forgiveness for all my mistakes? What exactly? What lesson do I have to learn from all this? Losing everything and losing my mind to gain it all back? It would be easier if my faith hadn’t died a long time ago. I still know there is a force out there higher and greater than all of us, I am just to blind to see it in my case I guess. Sorry, for the long message.

    • Please stay strong. Your story is not my story but I fell your pain. And we are his chosen ones. We will have a testimony that will blow our minds. The doors are opening and this is the season that we are going to another level. Just stay strong. It’s hard I know. Right now I’m broke, depressed and waiting on the lord for my breakthrough and it’s in the way. So rejoice. Love you all.

    • Jay do not despair, do not give up, do not stop reaching out to your Heavenly Father because He does hear you and He will bring you though this time of hurt and pain. You have traveled a difficult path and for a long time but sometimes Jay that is what God asks us to do. He breaks us down so He can build us up again better than we were, its a little like being under construction. God demolishing a building then re-builds something new and pleasing to His eye. Sometimes we need to go through these stages so that we can receive the best God has for us in our lives. As I read your story its as if you we’re being stripped and there is a mass of broken pieces everywhere in your life. But as your heart and soul begins to get restored and reshaped, you are being healed Jay, you are being renewed, and when you have gotten rid of everything that has you bound, just like the new building, you will be new,whole and ready to walk in your true purpose for God. That is just how my heart sees Gods great Plan for your life and God is always faithful He will never break His promises. God Bless.

  2. Why Jesus never hears my prayer? I’m having a really hard time now! I just want to study. Why’s everyone looking down on me?!! I hate my life! I wish I’ve someone else’s life.. it would be amazing.. 😢😢😢

    • Dear Tina, The Bible tells us that God does answer our prayers. John 16:24. But there are a few things we should remember…God’s answer may not always be what we were hoping for. His answer sometimes is simply “no.” And His answer might be something we’ll never really understand. In any case, His answer is always the best answer for us. He loves us so very dearly, and His answers to our prayers are always what we need …even if they are not really what we want. If you’re praying for something and it seems God does not answer, “please keep on praying” until God speaks to your heart and tells you to stop. Keep on praying until He says yes or no. God has an amazing plan for your life Tina and His plan will be reveled only in His time. I held you up today in prayer, that your studies will progress well, and that God will work though them to bring about a successful career. God Bless.

  7. Tuzna sam puno, toliko da boli…svaka suza, svaka kap, svaka misao….molim se da mi oci ponovo vide, molim se da ponovo cujem, molim se da dusa nadje ponovo radost, jer sad je tako mracno i tiho oko mene.

    Translation:(I’m sad a lot , so much that it hurts … every tear , every drop , every thought … .molim that my eyes can see again , I pray that once again I hear , I pray that the soul finds joy again , because now it’s so dark and quiet around me.)

  8. Amen! Great prayer for so many troubled in their hearts. God bless you more

    Almighty Father,
    Many hearts are troubled deep
    Tears flow as they are sorrow filled
    Only Your great love and compassion can heal
    And bring these hearts to peace
    Amen!
