Commonly, traumatic experiences of the past hardened our hearts in such a way that we no longer let anyone else into it or sensitized us to the extent of lowering our defenses around us. This can be a reason for suffering.
For many, God is the best relief for sorrows, and disappointments are to pray a prayer to soothe the heart.
These prayers also apply if it is you who wants to enter into a hardened heart.
Prayer to soothe the anxious heart
Jesus Christ, you have known the weight and pain of betrayal in your flesh in the most extreme form.
I know what a suffering and sorrowful spirit feel. I come with this prayer to soothe my heart and broken soul after all the evil my friends did to me not long ago.
Lord, I know that at some point in my life, I will have to forgive all those who have hurt me and betrayed me, but it is so complicated that I am not sure that I will be able to achieve it alone.
My heart is sad, Lord, it holds resentment within it. I don’t know what to do to calm it and relieve so much pain. I don’t think I can forgive so much anguish and bitterness, but I count on you to heal me of all the damage they have done to me, Heavenly Father.
I trust in the Holy Spirit to calm my heart, to take away this tightness, this anguish from problems, and to bring serenity, peace, and spirituality. I know my defects and anxiety, my nerves, my pain. But I am hopeful that my heart will calm down from the feeling of rejection.
Amen Holy Spirit! Amen Lord!
Prayer to soften the hard heart of the loved one
Dear Jesus Christ, you who take away the sin of the world. Have mercy on me and help the one I love most to accept me into his heart after so many disappointments that he (name) had to endure throughout his life.
You know what a betrayal of your companions, friends or loves, of those who thought they were with you in good times and bad. Lord, then I beg you with all my heart to make it possible for my love (name). Which has a hard heart, to be able to forget all the bad things that were done to him at some point and understand that I am not the same as those who caused all the bitterness he carries.
I have found that he has suffered, but these are not my situations, and I have nothing to do with those feelings. I only ask the Holy Spirit to calm his heart, to forget about past cases and defects, and to have the sense of hope in his spirit to free himself, and to know how much I love him.
Amen, Holy Lord!
Prayer to calm the soul
Dear Lord and Savior Father, my soul is afflicted and filled with resentment for terrible things done to me in the past. I know you have always talked about forgiveness and understanding with our fellow human beings, but there comes the point when our pain has no strength to soothe our hearts.
I pray, Lord, that you will make me calm down. I need you always to remove those evil thoughts and desires of petty situations that flood my mind and heart to move forward in life without significant setbacks.
Lord, take away all the resentment from my soul and make me as happy as possible.
Amen Holy Spirit!
Can prayer heal a broken heart?
A prayer to soothe the broken heart can remedy all the pain a grieving soul feels. Nevertheless, It only works when the one who prays the prayer is fully willing to forgive those who have harmed it.
If this does not happen, there is no divine power that can help those who allow their past demons to prevent them from going forward.
