Dear Lord, Blessed Mother, The Holy Spirit, and St. Jude I beseech thee to come to my assistance to fix my relationship with the woman who means everything in the world to me. Please touch her heart and her soul to make her truly realize just how much I love her – and always will. Or please give me the strength to recognize and move on if she and I aren’t meant to be together after having known each other now for 16 years.
My heart aches and I would rather know one or way or the other than feel so hurt and depressed not knowing. This isn’t the first time we’ve been apart, but I know I can’t take the hurt anymore of not knowing whether she’s going to come back into my life the way that I truly want. In God’s name I pray.
Relationships are like gardens, they must be cultivated. One of the most difficult things to restore is a broken relationship. Though it is difficult to do, broken relationships can be restored and as with other issues of life, the Bible has guidance for this. The Bible tells us, “Wait on the LORD; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD” (Psalm 27:14). If you’re having problems in your relationship, you are not alone. Remember that sometimes the Lord gives us trials in our life so that we take time to cultivate our relationship with the Lord is right all other relationships on earth fall into place. Relationships, just like gardens are hard work and require constant cultivation. Commitment, humility, time, forgiveness and proper communication are all steps that will lead to restoration in a way that will please the Lord. If you know in your gut that your relationship is worth saving, here are six ways to manage the ups and downs and get your love life back on track.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
