Isaiah 61:1 | Healing The Brokenhearted | A Call To Bring Love And Compassion To Those In Need


Isaiah 61:1 reads, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to heal the brokenhearted.” These words remind us of the profound role believers play in bringing healing to those who are struggling with brokenness and pain. Today, we shall explore several practical ways to fulfill the call to bring hope and healing to the brokenhearted.

Listen with Empathy:

One of the most powerful ways to bring healing and comfort to the brokenhearted is to simply listen. Listen not just to the words that are spoken but to the emotions behind them. Ask open-ended questions and provide a safe and non-judgmental space for the person to share their struggles and heartaches.

Show Compassion:

Express compassion and empathy to those who are hurting, remembering that we all face challenging times. Assure them that they are not alone and that together, through God’s help, we can find healing and restoration.

Point to Hope in Scripture:

Bring the comfort of God’s Word into the situation by sharing scriptures that provide hope and encouragement. Psalm 34:18 reminds us that “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Also, Jeremiah 31:13 says, “I will turn their mourning into joy; I will comfort them and give them gladness for sorrow.” By sharing these promises, we can remind the brokenhearted that God is with them in their pain and can bring joy out of their mourning.

Pray for Healing:

Prayer is also a powerful tool for healing broken heartedness, both for those in need and ourselves. Ask the person how you can be praying for them, and make sure to follow through on your promises. The power of prayer can bring peace and provide a supernatural healing touch that only God can offer.


Isaiah 61:1 tells us that God has anointed us to heal the brokenhearted. We do this not just through our words, but also through our actions, compassion, and the love of God. By providing a listening ear, showing compassion, sharing scripture, and praying for those in need, we demonstrate God’s love for them and ultimately bring healing to their brokenness. So let us be faithful to the call to bring healing to all those in need, trusting in God to provide the wisdom, strength and comfort to make a difference in their lives.
