Prayer for wisdom and reconciliation for a broken relationship

by Raquell (NC)

Dear Lord,

I come to you in prayer for a broken relationship. I ask that you reconcile the relationship that I ended abruptly in October of last year. I ask for your forgiveness for any verbal pain that I caused, and I forgive him for the verbal pain he caused as well.

It did not end on a good note, and I ended the relationship because he was not willing to compromise in order to make the relationship work. I did have suspicions, and became fearful when he did not treat me with the same respect he had for me in the beginning of the relationship.

Despite all of this, I do believe that if we worked through this hard time, then we would have made it to the marriage we talked about for our future. Our relationship was long distance and ended in a short 9 months,but so many trials came that tested both of our faith. He had a job loss, and I stuck by him with faith and prayers until he obtained another one. I lost my apartment, but it seemed like when I went through my trial, he became distant.

My heart has been broken since. I not only brought him into my life, but the life of my 4 yr old son. I decided to let him go because I felt like he didn’t appreciate me anymore, and did not have time for me. Although friends and family tell me to move on, I don’t go a day without thinking of him. God knows I loved this man, and felt as if he was sent to me.

I pray for this pain to be lifted from my heart and for God’s will to be done in my situation. I know God only wants the best for me so I also ask that he reconcile our relationship if it is in his will, and if it is not then I ask that he lift this pain from my heart, and allow me to move on to whom he has chosen for me.
