We have all experienced days or seasons of broken-heartedness. And when we do, there is really only one way to find peace and comfort. Turn to the Lord in faith and petition. He has promised to heal the broken-hearted and give comfort to the distressing soul. Pray this beautiful prayer by a saint who has gone before us into glory many, many years ago.
A Prayer of Confession and Repentance in Broken Heartedness, from “The Valley Vision”
O Lord, No day of my life has passed that has not proved me guilty in your sight. Prayers have been uttered from a prayerless heart. Praise has been often a praiseless sound. My best services are filthy rags.
Blessed Jesus, let me find a shelter in your peacemaking wounds. Though my sins rise to heaven your merits rise above them. Though unrighteousness weighs me down to hell, your righteousness exalts to your throne.
All things in me call for my rejection. All things in you plead my acceptance. Allow me to hear your voice assuring me that by your stripes I am healed, that you were bruised for my iniquities, that you have been made sin for me that I might be righteous in thee, that my grievous sins, my manifold sins, are all forgiven, buried in the ocean of your concealing blood.
I am guilty, but pardoned, lost, but saved, wandering, but found, sinning, but cleansed. Give me perpetual broken-heartedness, Keep me always clinging to your cross. Amen
Psa 34:18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
Psa 147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
Isa 57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
Isa 66:2 For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
1 Pet 5:5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to
the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives,
and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised (Luke 4:18)
