I know you brought me here for a reason and not just a season. I offer you my suffering and J’s suffering. I am not fighting this breakup because I know you have something far greater and better for both J and me, even if that means going our separate ways. I thank you, Lord, for helping J make the decision that I couldn’t do. We both love each other. I know that. He knows that. You, Lord, know that. But we both have so much more to learn. I need to learn how to be led. J needs to learn how to lead. I spent almost our entire 7.5 relationships chasing him and didn’t give him a chance to pursue me. I didn’t give him a chance to lead me closer to you, Lord.
I thought I heard your voice, Lord. I thought you said to wait and be patient because J is the man you promised me to marry. I still have hope. I still hope that that is in your will. But of course, if it is not, I won’t fight it. Because “thy will be done.” And whatever it is you have in store for both of us, I know it will be infinitely better than what we had, even if I can’t even begin to fathom that.
But if J and I are meant to be together, if that is in your will (and I do hope it is), I offer you this prayer to help with our current relationship situation. Please use the pain and hurt in my heart and in J’s to bring us closer to you, Lord. Please bring love, joy, patience, and understanding into our lives during this time of brokenness. Bless J and me, so that we may never surrender to whatever challenges that may come our way. Fill our hearts with more love for each other. And may you make each of us realize the other’s worth, flaws and all. Please touch the heart of J’s and fill it with love, understanding, and patience for me. Please make our complicated relationship become uncomplicated. Please help us use this time apart as a form of healing and understanding. I seek for your mercy and blessing that you may allow us to spend the rest of our lives with each other. Please make this feeling mutual for both of us, especially during trying times. Please lead us not into temptations. Guide us where ever we go. Please always put us in each other’s heart and mind.
Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer. I love you. Amen.
