Precious Lord, 

You declare in Your Word that you hate divorce.  The pain of tearing apart  my divinely-sealed covenant is far greater than You ever intended me to bear.  I confess my sin and take responsibility for my part in our downfall. Please forgive me and cleanse me of the residual effects of my divorce.  Even when I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I know You are with me.  Weeping when I weep.  Encouraging me when I feel discouraged.  Giving me hope to go on.  Thank You for never giving up on me.   By Your grace, mend my broken heart and comfort me in my grief.  Give me beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for heaviness.  May  this be  acceptable year of the Lord. 

Use this tragedy in my life as an opportunity for growth.  Soften my rough edges that hinder true intimacy.  Water the seeds of my brokenness that I would bear an ever increasing harvest of the fruit of the Spirit. Rebuild the remnants of my shattered soul.  Re-establish my identity not on what has been done to me, but on what Christ has done for me.  Thank You for transforming me into the righteousness of God in Christ. 

I refuse to carry the yoke of unforgiveness and bitterness toward my estranged spouse.  Your yoke is easy, and Your burden is light.  Despite the hurt and the pain I have suffered, what Your endured on the cross for my sins was far greater.  Yet You forgave me.  So I release every burden and bondage into Your hands. 

Guard me from rushing into relationships that seek to fill the emptiness only You can supply.  My fulfillment can only be found in You. Thank you that divorce is not the unpardonable sin.  Use the hurts of my past to bring healing and wholeness to me and ultimately through me into the lives of others that I may be called a tree of righteousness, so that you will be glorified.  In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
