Prayer When You’re Feeling Hopeless


Dear God,

I’ve been feeling hopeless lately. Being in this marriage has been so hard. Nothing that I expected marriage to be is happening. Everything I wanted in my life has been broken. I just don’t know what to do sometimes.

How can I live with and continue loving this man who has hurt me so deeply? How can I try to trust him when he has been proven untrustworthy? God- it’s impossible. Sometimes I just want to give up. I feel like I can’t take this hurt anymore. God- only You see me as tears fall down my face in bed at night. God- You know how much I gave my life and my heart to this man. I loved him freely. In return, he tricked me into believing a lie about our love.

I know he has his own problems. He grew up with pornography. It’s not about me. I know all that in my head. But right now, I don’t care about any of that. Right now I’m crushed. Right now it’s hard to go on. That’s why I’m asking You, God, to come and help me. Please come into my heart and bring comfort, hope, and relief. I know now that only You God can I trust. Only You fully love me and want me to be blessed. Please help me to rely on You alone God. You are my strength! In You I will find hope! I am believing in Psalm 30:5 that says

Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.

God, I pray for that joy and I know You’ll be with me through the weeping.

In Jesus’ Name,

  1. Wow!! I read this prayer and seriously thought you had read my journal or my thoughts. Thanks for the comfort in knowing I’m not alone. My hubby of almost 8 years is in a faith crisis and denounced any belief in God, refuses church, has been looking at porn AGAIN, has lied to me and broken more promises about drinking. I’m fumbling around trying to figure out how to make my marriage work with my broken trust and respect and without enabling him to continue.


  2. Hi Lindsay,
    I’m glad to hear you’re following God through this and making sure you don’t enable your husband’s sins. I know all of this can be so difficult and often confusing. Have you tried seeing a counselor together or making boundaries in your marriage? I am praying for you.


  3. I have seen a counselor friend. I’m just trying to find a Christian counselor I can afford. In the meantime I just got the book boundaries in marriage to read. Thanks for your comments. It means a lot
