Broken Heart

I feel that it’s wrong to ask for prayers for this because in the grand scheme of things it doesn’t amount to much. But my heart is hurting over a past relationship.

I dated John 2 years ago. In fact, this is the time of year he broke it off with me. I really felt that he was “the one”. I met some very dear friends of him one evening and one of them made a point to tell me that he’s “always so good to women and ends up getting treated badly”. I thought to myself that the last thing I wanted to do was hurt him. Anyway, I saw him a few days later, he told me again how much his friends liked me,and he left. Permanently. Said he didn’t know what he wanted from dating, and some other excuses.

I see him occassionally because he lives in my neigborhood. And I’ve recently seen him with a woman. I hate to say it, but it hurts. I feel jealous and I wonder what she has that I don’t. Why did he pick her and not me? Does he maybe somehow enjoy being treated badly? Is it a comfortable pattern for him?

I’ve prayed in the past about this situation and for God to reunite us, but I don’t know if I was ready for that, or if it would even be the right thing for me. I do know that I would handle this (and any other ) relationship differently. It kind of left me feeling that I was only seen as body parts and not as a worthwhile human being, an I am never going down a road that makes me feel that way again.

May I ask for some prayers that if it be God’s will that John and I reunite and have the kind of relationship God wants us to have; and if I have to let go, to please allow me to let go and find what is right for me?

Thank you!

Lord, Denise has learned a great deal from her relationship with her ex-boyfriend. Please help her to keep her excellent resolution to keep chaste, and help her to find a boyfriend who will respect her as a sister in Christ and as a consecrated (at baptism) child of yours. May she find joy and happiness in a good, chaste, and holy relationship with a boy, and be blessed for her virtue. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer.

*Discernment of the Lords will for one’s self is a difficult but nobel undertaking and I pray your answered swiftly and can acept his calling for your life ( which my not always be the same as your hearts desire).

Please continue to pray for me. My thoughts are consumed with him right now. I know it isn’t the biggest problem in the world,but my heart hurts so much. Please pray for God’s help for me.

Thank you.

I’m sorry I keep posting in my own thread. I hurting tonight because I keep thinking of him.

I know that with God all thing are possible, but how do I know when to just let go and face that it’s not meant to be? If he had always been hurt in relationships, I wouldn’t have hurt him. Why couldn’t he see that?

I’m sorry. This sounds so foolish. Please don’t only pray for me and my heart, but for him to. If it’s meant to be,please ask the Lord to help him see that.

Dear God, when John and I were together I was wrong about so many things, and I was too foolish at the time to realize it. I wasn’t living my life according to what would be pleasing to you, and looking back, I am filled with regret and shame. I am truly sorry for being so foolish.

I feel that I have learned so much recently. I used to think I knew it all, but now I know that’s not true. I thought I was doing things right, and then when I was disappointed, I wondered why things were going wrong and I was unhappy.

John has been hurt in the past, too. He may be making the same mistakes and repeating the same pattern of behavior that leads him to pick women who treat him badly and hurt him. Please help him to break that cycle. I believed that he and I were the missing parts of each other. Maybe the timing was wrong for us both. I’ve learned, and I hope he has as well.

I want so much to be reunited with him. I ask you to please bring our hearts together again. This time, in the right way. With wisdom and respect for one another,and allow a mature loving relationship to develop.

In Jesus name I pray.

God of love, may I come quickly to thee, when I am in need of protection and sympathy.
Guard me against sorrow that is drawn from the imagination.

may I find happiness in thy daily will.
Amen

A Prayer to Redeem Lost Time, by St. Teresa of Avila

O my God! Source of all mercy! I acknowledge Your sovereign power.
While recalling the wasted years that are past, I believe that You, Lord,
can in an instant turn this loss to gain.
Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that You can do all things.
Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Your grace, both now
and in the future, that I may appear before You in “wedding garments.”
Amen.

Thank you everyone for your prayers!

Over the last couple of weeks I have experienced a change in the way I’m thinking and feeling. The pain has subsided and I have finally accepted that if being together is not in God’s plan, then that is what is best.

I pray that everyone else who is struggling with a lost relationship finds the comfort that they need and the courage and strength to move on!

Praying for you, I know it hurts.
