         The Broken Heart Prayer

© by George Hartwell M.Sc.

Broken heart - painful outcomes

A broken heart can result in a hardened heart - difficulty loving.

A broken heart can result in bitterness - the intention to get revenge.

A broken heart can bring on health problems - emotion express in our body.

A broken heart can bring on heart problems - emotion effecting our heart health/

Conclusion: we don't want to go on living with a broken heart. Lets pray for healing for our broken heart!

Broken heart - who can fix it?

Prayer is for those who are ready to say: "I can't do this. I need God to do it."

Are you ready to say: "This is too much for me. I need God to heal my life?"

When we admit our own poverty, lack of resources, helplessness, then we are ready to let God heal us.  Are you willing to let go of  control. Ready to let God heal your broken heart? the broken heart prayer is a way to: "Let go and let God."

When I pray or guide people in prayer I will use tools to actuate faith of the heart and, as you will see, physical movement or inner pictures of Jesus are some of the ways I do this.

Broken heart prayer - how to do it.

One way to do this is to tell Jesus what you need and then physically go through a motion of putting your heart in His care.

This can be done with the heart by picturing yourself putting your heart - your physical organ - in His hands. 

Do either or both of the above and wait, listen and note what happens.

Trust and stand by faith in the position that Jesus is taking care fo your heart.

If you feel a positive emotion after doing one of these prayers then wait and soak in that feeling.  You may be sensing the love and life of God.  Invite the Holy Spirit to stay and deepen the effect of this prayer.

I know this can make a great difference in your life. It can ehlp your heart from getting totally bitter and hard.

Broken Heart Counseling - a Testimony

"George's friendly and truly caring personality makes a great amount of difference in each session.  I feel he is a "God Send" as he uses his experiences, education and faith in Jesus Christ to heal me from the inside out.  I believe in the way George counsels and that God brought him in my life to help mend my broken heart."  Amy

Example of Broken Heart e-mail counselling

Request: "Hey george I recently had a really bad breakup of 8 months and now im hurting because the girl lived with me for 8 months and now I face coming home to an empty room and I can't avoid thinking of her and I just dont know what to do anymore"

Answer: "Here are a few prayer things to do:

1.  Imagine putting your heart in Jesus' hands and asking that He give you a loving heart and that you not get bitter.

2. Pray the Lord's prayer to the Father including deliverance from the Evil one.

3.  Imagine Jesus in between you and your girl friend to cut off ungodly soul ties.  Ask Him to cut the umbilical cord in the spirit so you can both be free."


Problem:  I was involved with someone for the past 14 months, in which I gave my heart 100% and pure to this man.  We talked a lot in the past 14 months, it averaged 2-3 hours a day, I learned a lot about him and shared a lot about myself.. This is not my 1st relationship, but honestly only the 2nd time I have really been in love&ldots; I can’t even say the word “love” without my throat getting tight and tears swelling in my eyes&ldots; I will admit I am upset with myself for a number of reasons; loving someone so deeply and also allowing him around my daughters who are very fond of him&ldots;I have always thought of myself as a smart caring woman who was a pretty good judge of character-now I feel very shaky and don’t trust my own instincts&ldots;..Please Pray for me that GOD heals my Broken Heart&ldots;.Thank you

Answer:  What can I say?  Such love is beautiful and the loss even the more painful.  Do not trample on the beauty in what you have experienced not close yourself from love in the future.

 Put the whole relationship on the altar and give your heart to God to hold for now so you do not get brittle and do not go into self-blame.

Feedback:  Thank you for the kind words of encouragement.  It is very easy to go into self blame.  I did, I kept wondering about did I do or say and cried many tears and had a many of sleepless night..GOD is good.  Psalm 34:18 says: The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.  I have been holding onto that verse physically(I keep a copy with me to remind me) and in my heart&ldots;Slowly but surely I am feeling better&ldots;.I was consumed at having an answer to how everything ended, but now I am believing it’s probably best I don’t know. Everything happens for a reason and Everything has its season&ldots;&ldots; Thank you again


Notes re: for a Broken Heart counseling

Contact me if you need counseling for a broken heart.  It is a lot more effective if someone listens with compassion and joins their prayers to yours.  Let us see healing of your broken heart and restoration of your healthy identity. 

I love to see fulfilled the biblical promise of 'a new heart and a new spirit' and 'set the captives free.' 

People are different in the way they will receive God's healing or experience an 'inner healing' encounter with God.  In my counseling storehouse are many tools so we do not get easily "stuck" when doing inner healing prayer.
