Prayers to Help a Failing Marriage
From the beginning, God meant for man and woman to be together, joined in holy matrimony. It is not good than man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him. But, just because it is Gods will does not mean it is always easy.
Use this marriage prayer if you need Gods help and guidance to heal a failing marriage.
Prayer to Restore a Marriage
I come before you today with a heavy heart; my
marriage is in trouble, and I need your help.
Make changes in my spouse’s heart. Make us
compatible again, and bring us closer together.
Fill us with your love and give us the strength
to love one another, care for one another, and
fulfill your destiny for us.
Show us the harm caused by careless words,
and the pain caused by emotional distance.
Bring us together, like we once were. Show
us how to love one another again.
Heal the division between us. Make us one again.
In your name I pray, Amen.

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.
1. Prayer for God’s Blessings on my Spouse and I
Heavenly and Merciful Father, I thank you for who you are and for the promises that you have made concerning me and my spouse.
Your Word is forever true. And your promise of blessings and multiplication that you have given me throughout the ages (Genesis 22:17; Hebrews 6:14) is forever mine, in Jesus’ name.
You have promised to bless me exceedingly and it is your heart’s desire to enlarge my coast.
Every satanic covenant that is going against your continual and uninterrupted blessing in this marriage, I command the rain of fire to consume them, in Jesus’ name.
I pray against every spirit of lack and wretchedness. Oh Lord, let your peace, joy, happiness, and comfort saturate this marriage, in Jesus name, Amen!
Proverbs 3:33-35 The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous.
2. Prayer to Remove all negativity from the relationship caused by external people
Lord, I come to you with this petition because I know that you have made me one flesh with my spouse and you have said that no man should come between us (Matthew 19:6).
So I take authority over every outside influence that is polluting our marriage. Every foreign power that’s manipulating this marriage is dealt a heavy blow in Jesus name.
Oh Lord, reveal their evil agenda. Expose them and bring their plan to nought.
I pray that their seed of discord, hatred, malice, and separation that has been sown is uprooted by fire, in Jesus name. Amen!
Matthew 6:24 No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.
Malachi 2:16 For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the Lord, the God of Israel, covers his garment with violence, says the Lord of hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless.

Heavenly Father, I give you all praise and adoration, because your word is ever true. I give you thanks, because no weapon that is formed against this marriage will stand (Isaiah 54:17).
I declare that every arrow shot to destabilise this marriage is broken to pieces, in Jesus name.
With the spiritual authority given to me through Christ Jesus, I command the fire of God to consume every wedge that is meant to be put between me and my spouse, through bad and ungodly advice, and false teachings.
Every evil hand of demonic manipulation is crushed, in Jesus name.
I retrieve my marriage from the jaws of the evil one, in Jesus name. Thank you, Abba Father, because IT IS DONE, in Jesus name.
Ephesians 4:32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.
4. Holy Spirit work in both of us to bring us closer to God and each other
Oh Lord, I believe you are working in my life and that of my spouse to reconcile us back to to you and to each other.
Lord, stir my spouse’s thoughts with the same good and loving thoughts that existed when our love for each other was still very strong.
Let my heart and that of my spouse burn in love for you and for each other.
Lord, rekindle our love for one another. Where ever my spouse needs understanding to be drawn to you, Father give him or her that understanding.
Lord heal each one of our emotional wounds and cause our hearts to be drawn towards each other in Jesus name. Amen.
1 Corinthians 13:7-8 Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

Lord, heal our marriage of all spiritual attacks and manipulations. Let this healing start with me.
Lord, have mercy on our relationship and rebuild the trust and honesty that has eluded this marriage. Remove and break all ungodly soul-ties.
Lord, I command seven-fold restoration of the trust and honesty that the evil one has stolen from us, in Jesus name.

Lord, deliver me and my spouse from the evil spirit of unforgiveness, hatred, anger, bitterness, and abuse that is poisoning our minds and relationship.
Fill up every space in our hearts with your peace, love, joy so that there’s no room for negative emotions.
Lord teach us to treat one another with dignity, love, and respect.
Lord, I asked for the grace and emotional strength to avoid the use of anger and unforgiveness as a weapon to fight against my spouse.
I pray that we will no longer allow our emotions to be manipulated and used to drive a wedge between us, in Jesus name. Amen.
Matthew 6:14-15 For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Romans 12:19 – Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord.
7. Give us the strength to work through our differences
Lord, thank you for the good work that you have started in my marriage. I know that you will do mite to the end. I ask for the strength to stay courageous and strong in your promises as you work out things in our marriage.
Replace every negative feeling with love and help us to work through our differences.
Every man or woman determined to scatter thus marriage will not succeed. Their evil plans will scatter in Jesus name.
I refuse to be tempted to try other alternatives. I will not be discouraged even if it seems that nothing is happening at the moment. Your word is greater and surer than any other power. So I choose to trust in you.
Prayer for the strength for forgiveness between couples
Heavenly Father, I pray for forgiveness between me and my spouse. Lord, we have hurt each other in so many ways, but we have hurt each other mostly by refusing to forgive each other.
Lord, I’ve tried my own way but realize I can’t do it on my own. My God, help us forgive ourselves and heal our hurts.
May we totally and completely reconcile ourselves to you and your word.
Give us a testimony that we may be able to help other couples struggling with these issues as well. In Jesus’ mighty and powerful name I pray, Amen.
Restore Love in my Marriage
Please God, bring restoration to my marriage. The vows we gave each other, let us yearn for them, and each other, once more.
Let him realize that no one else is there for him as I am. May he leave all and everyone behind and understand that they are so toxic for our relationship, in every way.
Bring him back to a full love for your word and may what you have joined together be fully restored.
May he cleave to me, this very moment, in God’s Mighty name I humbly pray. Amen.
I praise You that You are always in control and I pray that You will show us the power of prayer. Father please breathe hope into our marriage, showing us and speaking to us that You can heal, restore and rebuild our covenant before You. Lord, we praise You and thank You that we have confidence in approaching You in intercession; that if we ask in anything according to Your will, You hear us. Father please restore our “First Love” for Jesus Christ and our passion for one another. Lord, we lift our marriage and all the other marriages around the world to You Lord and trust You to protect us from the evil one. In the precious and mighty name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.

And call on me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me. – Ps.50:15
When her 3-year-old marriage began to break down,
Yvette knew she couldn’t just sit there and do nothing.
She says that for months she had been praying and fasting.
But it looked as if nothing was happening.
Until she stumbled upon ONE prayer bullet in our daily emails.
A prayer that makes the enemy to break out in a cold sweat.
NOTE: most people also saw that prayer but had no idea what to do with it.
Not so this sister.
She began to take it like a crazed bulldog… and something shocking happened.
“I just could not wait to share my testimony.
My three year old marriage was breaking down. For months, I had been going through midnight prayers and fasting but it looked like there was no significant change.
My husband had been emotional and physically abusive, going in and out of the matrimonial home.
And what I thought was the final straw is when I wrote to you, if you remember brother elisha, two weeks ago telling you that I needed help.
I had caught my husband red-handed in adultery and he wasn’t even ashamed or apologetic.
The morning after this adulterous incident he was calling me and making all sorts of threats.
I was crushed in spirit.
That same day, at midday I received one of your weekly bulletins. It had the title “why her marriage failed”.
This was God sent. I opened it eagerly and read quickly through it. There was this one prayer bullet which I thought would work for my situation:
“Blood of Jesus, wipe away all handwriting of hatred and rejection from my life in the name of Jesus.”
I immediately fired this prayer bullet rapidly and repeatedly for about 20 minutes.
The calls from my husband stopped. In the evening I was surprised by his call in which he said he was coming back home to discuss the future of our marriage.
Indeed he came and for the first time had bought a nice present for me to show how sorry he was. Also for the first time in three years he truly apologized for ill-treating me.
Remembering our Lord Jesus’ teaching in Luke 17:4, I forgave and took him back.
I continued to fire this prayer bullet at midnight.
I am at a loss of words for the transformation this prayer bullet brought to my marriage. My husband is now the sweetest thing ever. Our love has been revived.
Yesterday he even confessed that in the past he harboured so much hatred towards me but now he doesn’t know where it is gone.
I know where it is gone; the blood of the Lamb wiped it away. Indeed we serve a mighty God! Glory be to God. I can never thank him enough but all I can do is praise and worship Him.
My hearty thanks to you man of God. Through you, I have been delivered in many areas of my life.”
– Sister Y
