Proverb 27:6: Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
How do you feel when your heart is being broken by the one you love dearly? especially when all your mind already centered around marriage and all of a sudden, the person walked out of your life without saying goodbye. Do you feel happy about it? The nature of a man is characterized by a lot of uncertainty that is why man is unpredictable.
How that someone you share your heart with, someone you can die for will just wake up one morning and decide to walk away leaving you heartbroken. There is no drug or antidote that can cure that pain from going away only the grace of God can. Today we shall be looking at prayer for a broken relationship. Many men and women have fallen into depression due to heartbreak, there are some people who have built a deviant behavior just because someone they trusted so much broke their hearts.
When heartbreaks happen, society expects that the two parties should move on with life. Many times, the feelings of the one whose heart was broken are not always put into consideration. Meanwhile, there are so many people who have given up on love, hence, they vowed never to get married because they don’t want to experience such a gory experience again.
Another side of the story is that whenever there is a broken relationship, at times God wants us to learn a lesson or He has a better plan. For instance, if the two partners will not have a happy marriage even after counselling and intercessory prayers, God can allow a disparity between them which will save the duo from the pending doom coming in future. So, it is not all broken relationships that are entirely bad, if the only man can see the future.
You all must know that high expectations precede disappointment. When the expectations of a man are high on something, disappointment is not far. The nature of a man is such that it will always cause him to misbehave and disappoint even those that he was not meant to disappoint. For instance, the book of Genesis recorded that God repented in his heart that he created man because of the works of our hands. If a man is capable of causing heartbreak to God Almighty, how much man to man relationship?
Nevertheless, God has a way of healing the deepest of all wounds if only we will give him the undeniable access to work on us. To as many people that suffer heartbreak due to a broken relationship, these are the prayers to help you overcome the feeling of heartbreak.
3 Ways To Avoid A Broken Relationship
1. Ask God For Direction: Before going into a relationship, it is highly important that we seek the face of God before we go into any serious relationship. Whether it is a love relationship or a business relationship. When we seek His face, He saves our face from shame and heart break. Many Christians are suffering from broken relationships today because they did not seek to know the will of God concerning that relationship. Not all that glitters are gold, even the devil can appear like an angel of light, that is why we must watch and pray before we enter any relationship.
2. Pray For The gift Of Discernment: The gift of discernment is one of the gifts of the Spirit. This gifts enables you to smell evil from afar. When this gift is operational in your life, you will recognize a wrong person when they come into your life. In Acts 16, Paul knew that the young girl prophesying behind them was possessed with the spirit of divination, so he was not fooled. Also Jesus Christ knew that the Pharisees where evil, while others where seeing them as the closest to God, Jesus knew who they really were because he could discern them from His Spirit. When you are endured with this Spirit, you will know when you see the right person. I encourage you to pray to be imparted with this gift.
3. Be Faithful: Don’t just look for a faithful partner, be a faithful partner. Be willing to give that which you want to get. The best way to change the world is by changing yourself first. If you want unconditional love, give unconditional love, if you want respect give respect, If you want the best, you must make yourself suitable to deserve the best.
