The following prayers are for you to pray for restoration of your marriage and also a prayer that you can pray to restore the marriage of others.
As Christians we go through difficult times in our marriages much like the unsaved world. However the one thing we have is our Savior Jesus Christ whom we go to with our marriage restoration prayers.
He is waiting on us to come to Him and allow Him to work in our lives. The word of God says “Whom God has joined together let no man put asunder”. Therefore, it is His will that your marriage should work. When you go to Him in prayer keep this in mind so that you do not doubt that this is His will for your life.
There are times when even after you’re prayed these prayers for restoration of your marriage it still does not get restored. Well, there are several things you need to keep in mind:
- Are you both saved? If not then you need to look at the Prayer of Salvation also know as the Sinners Prayer
- God wants what is best for both of you so you need to be open to where He will lead you. You should both be praying through this process and confessing your sins so that there is nothing standing in the way of your answered prayers.
Here is the Marriage Restoration Prayer that can be prayed for someone that you know who may ask you to pray for them.

Marriage Separation Advice
Are you wondering if a temporary marriage separation would save your relationship? Well, you won’t find any judgment here. Michael and I have been exactly where you are now. We didn’t separate but we certainly considered it early on in our marriage…
Dealing with the same issues month after month, and year after year wore us out! Emotional exhaustion made the thought of separation seem very appealing to us.
We reasoned with ourselves and with each other that a marriage separation would allow us time to think things over and perhaps gain a new perspective on our relationship. To be honest with you, I think we were just tired of dealing with each others issues.
I don’t remember exactly what happened to change our minds. I can only say it must have been God’s grace. Because at some point, we realized marriage separation was not the answer.
Here are two reasons why:
#1 It’s Not the Will of God…
“Since they are no longer two but one, let no one separate them, for God has joined them together, Matthew 19:6.” Despite what others may believe, we believe God’s original intent was that marriage would be a lifetime covenant.
The above scripture says, “let no one separate them” and for us it means just what it says. Christian couples should not let anything come between them.
Are there cases when christian marriage separation is necessary? Yes, but only in extreme circumstances.
When you said your wedding vows, you made a vow to God. The Bible says, “It is better not to vow than to make a vow and not fulfill it, Ecc 5:5”.
Maybe you don’t have a problem breaking promises, but breaking a promise to God should not be taken lightly. It’s very serious.
“But I need space to think.” No, you don’t need space to think — It’s the voice of God you should be listening to. And He can speak to you right where you are.
“But I need time to find myself.” Child of God, you’re not lost. And even if you were, how does something that is lost find itself?
Besides, God has the best navigation system in the world . He knows your exact location and how to lead you to His purpose for your life.
Beloved, if you seek Him with your whole heart, He’ll reveal your true identity; He’ll show you how you got where you are. Then, He’ll guide you safely to victory.
There’s no doubt He can do it because He did it for us!
#2 It Opens a Door for Satan…
Anytime you go against God’s instructions for your life, you are opening a door for Satan to come in and cause destruction. The Bible says that Satan walks the earth like a roaring lion seeking those he can devour. (1 Peter 5:8)
One of Satan’s most used weapons is the spirit of division. The spirit of division is out of control in the world today.
But as a Christian, you must be discerning enough to recognize it when it comes and then fight against it by the Spirit of God!
Marriage is about unity. (Gen. 2:24) Again, division is a tactic of the devil. Once you open the door for Satan, rest assured he won’t stop until he has caused even greater damage. We see it happen all the time…
What was supposed to have been a trial separation ends with each person permanently going their separate ways.
If the two of you have not yet separated, we urge you not to do so. You stand a much better chance of fighting for your marriage united than you do divided.
You see, there’s power in unity and agreement. If you join together as one flesh, and stand in agreement, no demon in hell can tear you apart!
Next, seek professional help. One mistake that many couples make, myself included, is waiting too long to get help. If you can’t afford marriage counseling and would prefer not to talk with your pastor, we can relate to that, but there are other counseling options available.
But My Spouse Already Left Me — What Can I Do?
If you are already separated, our best separation advice is to block out any voice that says your marriage is over…
Nothing is over until God says it’s over! It’s that simple.
Is that denial? No, it’s faith in an all powerful God who can do anything, except fail. There is no question of whether He can restore your marriage.
The question is, do you believe He can? If you believe He can, there’s only one thing left to do–fight for your marriage!
“Since they are no longer two but one, let no one separate them, for God has joined them together.” Matthew 19:6

In extreme conditions, it may be necessary for a couple to separate. Find out what those conditions are.
End of Marriage Separation
Regardless of our best intentions, there will always be times when even the best marriage will experience problems and issues. Instead of running away or refusing to face these problems, we should instead run to God, who can make things right.
And since the institution of marriage is His product, it therefore makes perfect sense that the maker and designer of this great product be consulted when there’s a problem. God is the one who knows what is wrong with your marriage and how to fix it.
The power of prayer cannot be overemphasised. Prayer can repair any relationship, no matter the level of damage. It can bring spouses together, no matter how sour their relationship has gotten.
Prayer can mend any damaged bridge, clear any confusion, straighten any heart, resolve any conflict, and heal any hurt. It can bring reconciliation to your marriage.
All you have to do is call upon God. Believe in his ability to answer your prayers, and remove any doubt from your heart (Mark 11:23).
It doesn’t matter if your own situation is that of a trouble relationship; a spouse who has left the matrimonial home; infidelity; confusion; breakdown in communication, or a marriage heading towards divorce.
God wants, and is able, to heal your marriage. Nothing is impossible with God.
How to Use This Prayer Guideline
God has given man free will. He will not intervene in the affairs of man by forcing him to go against his own will. Neither can we control the behavior of another person.
What God does is to bring a change of heart and mind. And what we can do is pray to God and ask Him to touch the heart and mind of our spouse.
God will go to places we cannot, and do things that we can only dream of. Use these prayers as guidelines for how to pray for the resolution of all that ills your marriage.
When making these prayers, back them up with the Word of God. Engage the power and potency of the Word against the power of the enemies (Hebrews 4:12).
Personalize these prayers by replacing the parts of the prayers with your name and that of your spouse where applicable.
After making these prayers, believe that God has answered and consolidate your victory by thanking God for the changes you hoped to see and the restoration of your marriage.
Below are the seven prayers that will help you bring back your focus on God, who alone is able to permanently heal and restore your marriage.
