Prayers of Hope for the Brokenhearted by Jill Kelly.

Sometimes the deepest hurts are the most difficult to express. Times of heartbreak and sorrow can also be times of great loneliness, when it seems you bear unbearable burdens by yourself.

As you let these prayers become your own, you can trust that God is very present. You can believe that He sees each tear, hears each cry of pain, and listens closely to each whispered plea. You can know that He will never leave you nor forsake you.

Everything Is Yours

When I look at my children, I am amazed.

You have blessed me beyond measure.

Lord, Your Word says that You knit them together in my womb.

I can’t even imagine.

Fix My Focus

With all that’s going on right now, it would be easy for me to focus on the trials at hand, but I don’t want to do that.

When I focus on the circumstances, I take my eyes off You.

My Purpose

Lord, I have so many roles to play.

Wife, mother, daughter, friend — the list goes on.

I’m lacking in all areas.

I can’t please everyone all the time.

Be Near

Where are You, Lord?

Why do You seem so far away?

We draw near to You, Lord.

We have nowhere else to go.

When I Don't Understand

I don’t understand why all of this is happening.

I can’t fight this battle.

I hate suffering.

I cannot bear to walk through this one more day, one more hour, one more minute.
