Prayer to move on with my life and forget my ex-boyfriend
It has been almost eight months to the night when a man I loved deeply broke up with me. I still think about him day and night - but I really want to get over this because it's no use hanging on to a fractured past.
Please deliver me from the suffering of remembering our times together - both the good and bad times - and please, I implore you, please help me to move on and do Your Will.
Even though we do not keep in touch anymore, we are still colleagues (albeit in different offices) and it's hard not to think about him when his name is mentioned. But please help me to move on and treat thoughts of him that creep into my mind with nonchalance. I beseech you, O Lord, to let me truly forget and forgive him to the point when I would feel absolutely neutral, the way a mere acquaintance would, when I next see him or hear news of him. Please help me to get over my ex-boyfriend so that the goodness in life that You have in store for me will manifest itself soon. I beseech you, Lord, to help me forget him soon and for a good man who's equally yoked in Christ with me to appear in my life soon.
I pray that you bless me with the willpower, courage and ability to really move on from lingering thoughts of my ex-boyfriend and get on with my life...Amen!
