A Prayer for the Broken Hearted

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

Lord, comfort empty arms, tonight; 
Those arms that held another tight,
But had to let them go…
For Father, only You know
What they need.
Lord, comfort broken hearts, tonight;
Those hearts compelled to shut up tight
Against the pain, the sorrow…
For Father, only You know
How they grieve.
Lord, comfort lonely souls, tonight;
The ones whose friends have gone from sight,
And left a void that only seems to grow…
For Father, they must know
You’ll never leave.
Lord, comfort those whose faith is gone;
Who fear that it has been too long
For prayer to even flow…
For Father, YOU still know
That they believe.
“Because of the LORD’s great love
we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.”
Lamentations 3:22-23 NIV
