6 Prayers to Help You When You Are Hurt By Someone You Love
When you are hurt by someone you love, figuring out how to handle it can be tricky. For some people, dealing with the pain is simply a matter of cutting the person off. For others, they sweep it under the rug and choose to forget about it until it happens again. And still, for others, all they can think of is how to curse the person out. If you’re a Christian, none of these options are scripturally viable. The Bible says that God won’t allow you to take on more than you can bear. So, here are 6 scriptures and prayers to help guide you as you deal with the pain and try to figure out God’s purpose in the situation.
When Hurt By Someone You Love – God will fight for you
Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again.The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
Prayer: God, I want to retaliate. I want to exact revenge on those who hurt me. Help me to be strong and allow you to fight on my behalf. Help me to be still.
When Hurt By Someone You Love -You are strong enough
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
Prayer: Thank you Lord for reminding me of your faithfulness. Though this pain is overwhelming at times, I am encouraged to know that you have equipped me with just what I need to deal with it. Because of you, I can and will endure it according to your purpose for my life.
When Hurt By Someone You Love – You are not alone
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
Prayer: Lord, when I open my eyes each day, help me to feel your presence. Help me to keep in step with your Holy Spirit and be counseled by your word. My heart aches and I am worn out from crying. Please help me rise out of my hurt and sorrow.
When Hurt By Someone You Love – God is your strength
Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God ; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
Prayer: Lord, when I have no where to go, I turn to you. You are the rock that I stand on so help me to find my strength. I am weak from suffering and I have no where else to turn. Only you can restore honor to my name as I have been falsely accused. My spirit is shattered but help me to find hope in you.
When Hurt By Someone You Love – God will use this for your good
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Prayer: Lord, I don’t know why this is happening, but I pray that through this situation, I can lead someone to you. I pray that you use me any way you choose so that your name may be glorified even through this dark situation.
When Hurt By Someone You Love – Bless those who hurt you
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
Prayer: God, I won’t lie. I want to curse like a sailor. I am so angry and hurt and disappointed. But, I trust in your unfailing love and know that you desire to see everyone in a right relationship with you. So, I pray for the one who hurt me that you will bless them and help them to come to know you through my example.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.

God can and he will , I took care of mine and my nephew!!
Leesha when I was 25 I went through my whole pregnancy alone yes all 9 months because of a man who didn’t love me. I was embarrassing and very hurtful. I am now 57 and the son I gave birth to is very successful, yes his dad is in his life because of illness. I’m here to tell you once you set eyes on that baby or feel the movement in you stomach of life you will make it. God forgives us and then he’ll send you something better. God bless you, you gonna be ok!
Very Good. Thank you.
Thank you so much for this website. I was really helped by the six scriptures and prayers when you’re hurting. They really helped me to become more focus on God as my refuge. . I look forward to receiving all that God has given you to share.
I came across this by the leading of the Holy Spirit. I was googling a scripture and came across this. I’ve been hurt by my pastor who constantly hurt and humiliated me both in private and publicly. No matter how I tried to gain his approval some how it’s never good enough. He made fun of me publicly and doing Facebook live and mentioned my name so they’ll know he was talking about me. I think he has a narcissistic spirit and he’s a bully. No he wants people to call him Father. Please pray that I hold my Peace and I don’t cuss him out cause he’s been doing it to me since 2011.
Thank you for those words of hope, God is still in the working position.
Nothing is in possible for in to do he takes me to it so he will me though it.
God is always in it.

I was in an abusive relationship for 8 years, he finally had enough of using me and kicked me out. I am now single for 7 months… I am in a very bad space I’m miserable and sad and I ireally miss my ex. He is happily moved on with another woman…. I don’t know how to move on I think about him and contacting him even though he treated me bad. I’m a good person and gave him my everything…. I know I don’t deserve he’s bad treatment and this breakup was a blessing but I can’t help my heart… I really want another chance to work things out with him… I know he can be a good person. I don’t know why I’m desperate for him. I need prayer please.

In Need of help says
My wife cheated and I am hurt and really fighting the feeling of wanting to hurt the other man. I pray for him but he deserves it he knew that we were married with two kids. It hard to follow the rules when the world is filled with people who don’t. He deserves it and I am not sure why I shouldn’t be the change he needs to be better. I know I am supposed to pray for him but how am supposed to not feel this way.
In need of my brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ to pray for my marriage and my husband that I hurt with my regetful desicion that I take full responsibility
It hurts .. deep!! over 10 years you think you know someone and they will do a whole 360 on you!! I know GOD got me …but now it’s a healing process and a learning experience!!
Roberta Rose Gonzales says
hey is it hard to pray for someone that has hurt you really bad. like your mom that told you. you were not her kid when you were young or destroyed your life by taking away your brother and taking you away from your only family that cared about you and also saying that your dad is dead is it also hard to forgive a person like that because i think it is and i really want to pray for her i also want to forgive her because she is my mom and i love her even though she has hurt me and my brother
I pray that God please heal our Land.
Please keep all of us who has been really practicing the teaching of your son Jesus making and doing good put of the gift of life you have us. That we will soon be back to our normal daily routine and be able to be reunited with our loveones.
I pray this through your Son Jesus. Amen
Thank you so much for this.. I have just recently suffered another cheating from my husband and this time it really hurts so bad, and these scriptures are exactly what I needed and the prayers I have in my heart. So, thank you. May God continue to bless you.
