Return to Marriage Prayer
Here is a prayer I should have been praying the first fifteen years of our marriage instead of trying desperately to control my husband and our circumstances. I learned that even if your circumstances don’t change right away, your heart and mind can. Begin by allowing God to change you, and other things will begin to change as well. A printable version is available by clicking HERE or at the bottom of the post.
Several years ago I would have said that healing our marriage was absolutely impossible.
Thankfully, our God is so good at doing the impossible.

There is so much wrong with our marriage, I don’t know where to start. I’m sorry we haven’t made You the center of our marriage like we meant to. I’m sorry I haven’t been the wife, his helper, that I should have been. Please forgive me, Father.
It seems impossible to fix this marriage, Jesus. We’ve been going the wrong way for far too long. But I know You are the God who does impossible things. We need You to do the impossible for us, Lord. Our marriage feels so dead, so lifeless. But You breathed life into dry bones in Ezekiel 37. You created us from dust. Please, Lord, breathe life into our marriage.
I don’t want to give up, but it’s so hard, Lord. I’m tired of being angry, hurt, and frustrated all the time. Heal us. Soften my heart toward him. Help me to see him the way You see him, Lord. Bring to my mind the plans You have for him, the gifts You have given him, and all the wonderful ways You created him to be.
Keep Satan far away from us, Lord. Help us to recognize he is the true enemy here, not each other. We know he would like our marriage destroyed and our family broken. He has already had too many victories in our marriage, but not anymore. Protect us from every strategy formed against us, every lie he would like to whisper, every doubt or any fear he would like to plant in our minds.
Create something new for us, Jesus. Fill us with a new love for each other and a renewed hope for the future. Ignite in us a passion for You above all else, and then for each other as well. Mark out a straight path for us, so we know which direction to go when we get off this toxic merry-go-round. Guide each step, Lord, I’m not sure we have the energy to take much more than a step at a time.
We know You are for us and that You want a marriage for us that will bring joy and glorify You. We have tried to do this on our own, Lord, and it hasn’t worked out well. So I place our marriage in Your hands and give up control to You. I am Yours, and our marriage is Yours. Thank you for Your promises to restore and love us in ways we can’t even begin to fully understand!
In Your Precious Name,

prayer for a broken marriage
Father, I pray that You will deliver us from self-centeredness. Grant us a servant’s heart (Ephesians 2:3; 2 Timothy 3:2; Matthew 20:28; Philippians 2:5-11). I choose to forgive my spouse and bless them. Forgive us from hardness of heart. We repent in the name of Jesus!
Father, in the name of Jesus, I bind the work of Satan from my marriage. The enemy would love nothing more than to destroy our marriage. I ask You to stop His work in our lives and destroy his attacks against my marriage (John 8:44; Genesis 3:11-13). I cancel ALL satans assignments over my marriage. Lord, dissolve and render to nought every evil counsel fashioned against my home and marriage. I bind every spirit of Ahab, Jezebel, strife, and home wreckers, in the name of Jesus.
Father, please open his/my eyes so that he may be established as my head so he will put Jesus as our covering.
Lord, I ask You to convict and deal with any unconfessed sin our life. Enable us to deal with any sin that is hindering our marriage (1 John 1:9).
Father, I plead that we will speak the truth to one another in love. Help us to honestly share our feelings without being arrogant or spiteful. Through love and honesty, enable us to work through our differences (Ephesians 4:25; 1 John 4:7, 11).
We loose the spirits of forgiveness, love, patience, tenderhearted, sound mind into us, In the name of Jesus. Father, we ask for a spirit of agape love to manifest itself in this marriage, in Jesus name!
We take authority over and bind all spirits of bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and slander, pointing the finger, blame, along with every form of malice. Let every evil spiritual marriage with spirit husband / wife be divorced, stolen love, he doesn’t care/she doesn’t care, in the name of Jesus. We break all curses of divorce and separation off of ourselves, and this marriage.
Father, I plead that You would bring us into a more intimate relationship with You. Grant us a hunger in our soul for You.
We cancel all assignments of being defensive and self-righteous about the problems in our marriage and Your conviction concerning these things. Grant that we would humbly accept Your conviction and will change as You deal with us (John 16:7)
Father, I ask that You would deal with any past problems in our life that is causing trouble now. Your Word declares that You heal the brokenhearted and that You bind up their wounds. In the name of Jesus, I ask You to be true to Your Word and heal the emotional wounds and baggage that we have in our lives. (Psalm 147:3).
Father, I pray that You would rekindle passion and desire between us. I ask You to bless our relationship and help us to rejoice in it. I pray that we would be satisfied and exhilarated with each other’s love (Proverbs 5:15-23).
Lord Jesus, you have declared that what therefore God has joined together, let no man separate. You have declared the will of the Father. It is the Father’s will for marriages to be for a lifetime. You desire one man to be with one woman for life. This is Your heart’s desire. Because this is Your heart’s desire, I plead with you to save and strengthen my marriage, in Jesus name.
