God, Life can sometimes throw a curve ball where we become hopeless. We stumble upon situations where only God can heal our most profound pain. No matter how hard we try, we cannot seem to fix the problems in our lives. It drives us to our knees, shouting, “God help me!” from the bottom of our hearts.
During these times, God wants to shower us with love if we will only let Him. The Bible says in Hebrews 13:5 that He will never leave or forsake us. Maybe you are going through a hopeless situation in your life. Although many circumstances can make us feel hopeless, I would like to focus on these three. If you are dealing with any of these situations and want God to help you, please pray the prayers after each circumstance.
Death of a Loved One, God help me!
It is easy to go through your entire life, never healing from the brokenheartedness of losing a loved one. However, God does not want you to be in mental torment over this. Instead, he wants you to hand your loved one over to Him because they are now in His loving care. He wants you to cling to the beautiful memories.
God, help me. I release my loved one over to you! They are now basking in your Holy presence. I know they would not want to come back here for the world. Thank you for taking them home to your splendor. God, help me heal from my broken heart. Remind me that I will see them again one day. Amen.
Being Diagnosed with a Terminal Illness
It would be straightforward to walk through this situation scared to death. However, God is the God of all comfort. He can give you peace even in the midst of this valley, and the very thing you might think is a curse can wind up blessing many other people. Let’s pray.
God help me see the beauty in my pain. Help me understand that nothing happens to me without your first knowing about it. Please help me not fear the unknown but entrust my situation to your wisdom. Amen.
Feeling Suicidal/ Dealing with Depression
Most of the time, people that are suicidal do not want to die. They feel as if there isn’t any way out. However, God says in His Holy Word that He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. You have to trust that! God is the only person that can heal any of these painful hurts. Know your life matters, and it has a unique purpose!
God help me! I feel broken inside, and I can no longer deal with this. God, I need your intervention. I feel like there is no way out anymore. I feel like nobody cares, but please remind me that you care about me. As long as you care about me, that is all I need. Please takes these suicidal feelings and depression away. In your precious name, I pray. Amen.
