Prayer for Healing and Restoration

Heavenly Father,
In this moment of deep despair and brokenness,
I come to You, feeling lost and doubting Your goodness.
I am struggling to see Your light and to feel Your presence.
Please, Lord, draw near to me in my pain and confusion.
Heal my wounded heart and restore my crushed spirit.
Renew my faith, and help me to see Your hand even in these dark times.
Remind me of Your unfailing love and Your promise to never leave me.
Bring peace to my troubled mind and hope to my weary soul.
In my weakness, be my strength; in my doubt, be my certainty.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
