Prayer to Help With Letting Go

by Amber (Indiana)

Dear God,

My heart is hurting every single day over a man who I was with from the time I was 16 until 29 years old. We have two small children that I’m trying to take care of and my depression from all of this is beginning to take a huge toll on me. I’m so hurt and do not understand why this is happening. He was never faithful but I loved him enough to stay but he obviously did not love me enough to do the same. He moved out on the day I buried my sister in 2011 and hasnt been back since. He has now “moved on” to another woman whom he was seeing while we were living together and demands that I do the same but I can not seem to let go. I have had thoughts of suicide, I have no appetite and am losing sleep. He tells me how much he doesnt love me anymore and that he wishes I remove myself from his life. Those words hurt me to the core and I do not know what else to do. I’m seeking help but nothing seems to be working. Sometimes I ask if you hear me b/c my days continue to get weary. I do not love myself anymore. He took everything from me. The only thing keeping me here are my children. God PLEASE help me. I’m not sure how much more I can endure. Letting Go and Letting God seems to be a lot easier said that done.
