Hello. Can you please pray for me? I just broke up with my boyfriend of 5 years. And I'm really struggling ☹️ please pray that God gives me peace with my decision and that I may move on from this. Thank you.
Hello! :) 5 years is quite an investment, so I believe it when you say you are struggling. :/ For whatever reason it didn’t work out, there’s no doubt in my mind the Lord is definitely guiding you. He is also guiding him, but that’s another story…
Father in Heaven, You are mighty to love us and strengthen us no matter what condition we are in. We give You glory for You are our stronghold through whatever circumstance we are experiencing. We thank You for the struggles we face because they bring us back to You. Lord, I lift up my friend who is having a hard time finding peace in the decision they have made. I ask that You make Your presence known to them wherever they are right now, letting them know also that the desires they had in their heart leading up to the breakup was placed there by none other than You. God, allow them to surrender in Your plans for them because Your will is perfect. In their weakness let them continually give up and give into You where You will be their source of strength. Father give them assurance that through Your Spirit, everyday is an abundance of Your grace and mercy, so that in little steps of faith, You bring them to a place where they can see from Your perspective, that in all Your doing, Your will and time is perfect just like Your love that is relentless. Lord, let them grow in faith for it is in Your will that those who love and seek You will be rewarded. Show this person God that nothing is impossible when they put their full trust in You, help them to look ahead onto better things, guarding their heart and mind from the things of the past, teach them Lord that this walk with You is a relationship everyday, and that the more they spend time with Your Son Jesus through praise, lifting Him up makes for struggles to be as insignificant as yesterday’s battles. Reveal to them time and time again there isn’t anything so terrible that they haven’t yet endured because in all that You put us through we only come out of them stronger, and it was all because of trusting You. Please convict them that the time they spend with You in this season of singleness will be worth their value in the future because You intend to build the character of those who need You the most. And Father equip my friend with all that they need to follow Jesus closely so they are led to the right friends and company that will encourage them even more on this walk with You. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
2 Corinthians 4:8-10 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.
Romans 8:18 I consider that what we suffer at this present time cannot be compared at all with the glory that is going to be revealed to us.
Matthew 11:28-30 Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke and put it on you, and learn from Me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit; and you will find rest. For the yoke I will give you is easy, and the load I will put on you is light.
