Prayer for a Hurting Heart

Dear Father,

I come to you so empty, needing to be filled. I am exhausted and drained.

Thank you for being there for me to pour out my heart to and for binding my hurts and my brokenness.

Thank you for creating me the way I am and for making me the exact person you want me to be.

Please continue to mold me into your image, even when it is painful.

Thank you for friends who love me and care about me and who give of their time to sacrifice for me. Bless them greatly for their ministry to me today.

Fulfill the desire of our hearts to know your peace and joy. Touch our hearts in the deep places and fill us with your presence. We long for your healing touch.

Forgive my anxiety and desire to cast my burdens upon myself and to drag them around. You know the end from the beginning. Help me to enjoy the journey.

I feel your love through my family and friends, through the blessing of community in worship this morning, through the surprises you send my way.

Grow me in gratefulness. In faith, hope, and love. In trust that you know me and love me perfectly.
