Prayer For Healing From Emotional Pain
Prayer for Healing from Emotional Brokenness
The moral degradation of our society today is one of the causes of emotional despair. Nothing can ease the pain when someone is hurting except God's healing love. When we bring to God our concerns, He is always willing to listen with undivided attention. All you have to do is open your heart to Him.
I remember the time when I was terribly hurting. The pain was so intense. I felt I could no longer breath and couldn't go on living for even another minute. I grabbed the Holy Bible and hugged it so tight as if it was Jesus Christ himself I was hugging. I poured my heart out to God and cried out as I agonized in pain for more than an hour never letting go of the Holy Bible.
Then thoughts of the Lord's betrayal crossed my mind. And it occurred to me how deep His hurt was when all of His disciples except for John The Beloved abandoned Him. So I asked, "Lord, is this how you felt at the hour of your abandonment on the cross? When after laying down your life for us, we still chose to disobey and turn away from you? If I am hurting because of the wrong choices of others, how much more must you have hurt? But you never complained. Instead, you intercede for us by asking God, the Father, to forgive us.
I embrace this pain and offer this pain to you. Please accept it as my offering for all those who are hurting in more ways than I am. Despite all the pain, I choose to forgive those who have hurt me, especially the one who have hurt me the most. I forgive them and release them to you. I also forgive myself for my lack of trust and faith in you. Lord, give me the grace to love the person who is most difficult to love and has hurt me the most.
I thank you for healing my emotions for you can do all things. Amen.
More often than not, it is very difficult to pray when we are emotionally broken or when we are hurting. We find it very difficult to express ourselves to a loving God whom we do not see yet by faith we believe to always be with us.
If that sounds like you, you may take comfort in this prayer. I feel helpless when I see somebody, especially someone who is a friend, agonize emotionally. There are times that our sympathy and words of comfort at the hour of their suffering is not enough. They need God's healing touch. "Prayer for Emotional Healing" by Maribi Mapa Garcia is a beautiful and powerful prayer
I hope somebody will find this prayer to be God's instrument for their emotional healing and blessing because God is a living God and can do all things to all those who trust in Him
Prayer for Emotional Healing
I come before You with faith in Your promise that whatever I ask for in Your name You will grant to me if it is for the good of my soul and in accordance with Your Divine Will.
I come trusting in Your great love for me and believing that only You know what is best for me. I come to You now to ask that You enter my heart and heal all my wounded emotions.
You know me better than I know myself. Bring Your healing love into every corner of my heart and release all the buried negative emotions inside that have not been resolved and continue to cause me anguish.
Remove all my unhealed hurts and painful memories that block the flow of Your graces, robbing me of Your peace, love and joy. Heal all feelings of sadness, loneliness, fear, and anxiety.
Heal all guilt, despair, feelings of betrayal and rejection. Heal all feelings of anger, hatred, resentment and bitterness.
Bring Your healing love to all my emotions that have caused me feelings of hopelessness, discouragement, helplessness and despair. Grant me the grace to forgive all those who caused negative emotions and likewise to be forgiven by those to whom I have done the same harm.
O, Lord, give me a repentant heart, forgive me for my sins and failures, and be merciful to me Help me to realize the blessings that resulted from each painful experience and how this had led me closer to you.
As You release from me all these painful emotions, fill all the empty spaces with Your love, Your peace, Your joy and the powerful presence of Your Holy Spirit. After I have been healed, may my life be a witness to Your power and glory and may I reach out to others, too.
All these I pray in Jesus name through Mary and all the angels and saints. Amen
