Prayers about marriage

Here, we offer a marriage prayer for those who are experiencing marital troubles. As humans, we are imperfect and that goes as well for the relationships we form.

It is right to ask God for help in troubled times.

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

Heavenly Father,
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.

Prayer to bring Back Lost Love

Please pray that my heart’s desire be granted,
the return of the love of my life, my one true
love. I pray that my spouse may have
healed his wounds from the past and forgiven
all that has gone wrong.

Lord, help my husband (wife) be able to follow
his heart to his desire and love for me and
permanently return to me to be forever
reconciled as one, as husband and wife.

 Are you praying for a wife or a husband? The preceding marriage prayer is a suitable wedding prayer for you.

God is not only the Creator God but also the God who authored love and romance. The Scriptures begins and ends with marriage — of Adam and Eve and the Bridal body of Christ with Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God. And in-between the Old and New Testaments, godly men and women of the Bible tied the knot and

fulfilled God’s destiny for their lives together.

Marriage is more than a signed contract between a husband and his wife. It is a divine covenant with God as the third party. Marriage is a blood covenant being sealed when the hymen membrane in a woman is being broken and blood is shed for the first time during consummation. God has placed this institution in the society for married couples not only to procreate but to respond to His call to inhabit and take dominion over the earth and proclaim the gospel to the lost.

In this contemporary day and age, the original intent of God for marriage has slowly been forgotten because of the propensity of man towards divorce, legal separation, annulment, illicit co-habitation or living-in, homosexuality, sexual perversion, pornography, and fornication. Those in the Christian circles are not exempted from all these.

However, there are still Christian men and women who are keeping themselves pure and holy while waiting for the right and the best godly

Praying for a Wife

spouse for them. Many of these godly bachelors and bachelorettes have been praying for a wife or husband and fasting to seek the will of God for their lives. Perhaps, you are one of them—patiently waiting and eagerly expecting that one day, you will meet the one God has for you since the foundations of the world.

Do not lose hope because if God has placed a desire in your heart until now to marry a spouse, experience sexual intercourse, and bear children, then be assured that they can happen in God’s appointed time. Begin to pray wedding prayers  for your future husband or wife everyday, blessing him and praying for his protection and goodwill. You may list down Bible verses to declare as prayers for him daily and thank the Lord for him even though he has not arrived yet in your life. Thank God in advance for him. You may listen to God for his specific qualities or character and pray them through.

Then, for the practical side of it, prepare yourself for your meeting and for the marriage you have so long been praying for. Take care of your body and make yourself presentable, neat, and clean because any moment could be the day that he will come. Become emotionally stable, mature, and strong in your spirit as marriage is not as easy as you think it will be. Organize your life and make preparations to become a wife or husband. Learn how to cook, clean, fix household stuff, work efficiently, and handle finances. The moment you prepare yourself seriously for marriage, perhaps the faster your spouse will appear before you.

Continue on praying for a spouse and allow the Holy Spirit to renew your mind with God’s Word daily and take control over your will, emotions, and heart. Guard your heart at all times as not all prospective men or women is the right one for you. It takes a strong discernment to know and to choose God’s best for your life. Do not settle for anything less. You will know the perfect spouse if you are attuned to the voice of God, rested in His presence, and know His perfect will. The result of love is beauty and life. If this person is imparting beauty and life in you and you are at peace, in joy, and excited then this can be God’s spouse for you.

It is important that you have an accountability partner like a trusted pastor or spiritual mentor or a close friend to consult with the matters of the heart. God is the one who gives a man his wife and He speaks to the man and woman that they are meant for each other and the biological and spiritual family in the church or ministry will confirm it.

You may have prayed many prayers before. You may use this prayer for marriage as a guide —

Our Father God, you know the deepest longings of my heart. How I yearn for someone to be with, to talk to, to love me, and to share my life with. I have spent countless nights crying out to you to bring the right person and ordain our meeting. Instill in him the sense of urgency to find me. Let him long for me as well and speak to him that it is me you have chosen for him. Prepare us now in all aspects of our lives and set us free from anything that binds, ensnares, entangles, and addicts us. Remove the wrong people from our lives and cut all our ungodly soul ties from our past relationships and even our emotional or romantic entanglements now with other persons. I ask You, Lord to mold us to be a responsible and committed spouse for each other that our marriage will last for as long as we live. I pray for him that You will protect my spouse and deliver him from all temptations. Give me to someone who will honor me and respect me, love me, cherish me, and take good care of me. I am praying for the best and right spouse for me, the one you planned for me to marry. Order our steps so that our paths will cross in Your beautifully ordained time. Orchestrate events for us to find each other. Keep us pure and holy at all times even when no one is watching because indeed You are. I bless my spouse that he will become who You called him to be. I bless his spirit, soul, and body to be whole. I plead the blood of Jesus over both of us and everything concerning us. Thank you Jesus for this desire to marry and the hope and excitement to enter into this sacred union with You. Have Your way, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

God is our Husband and Maker. Accept His invitation to be the lover of your soul. Love God first and then when He knows that you are completely His, He will give you the man or woman of your dreams because by then God knows that He is your first love even though you have an earthly partner to share the rest of your life with. If you learn this, God will give you the desires of your heart because it is He who placed those desires as you delighted in Him. Every time you feel discouraged and hopeless about getting married, go back to this marriage prayer and be encouraged.

How’s Your Marriage Prayer Life?

Consider making marriage prayer a daily routine with your spouse.  Don’t wait until your marriage hits a brick wall before you start praying. Why? Because including prayer in marriage really does make a difference.

Do you realize there are some things in your life that will not change until you make a commitment to pray?  Perhaps this is why the Word of God tells us to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Today, Wanda and I want you to make a commitment to pray daily for your spouse and with your spouse. We are absolutely convinced about the power of prayer in marriage.

We personally have a ton of Christian testimonies to prove it! That’s why we’ve made it a habit to pray together every evening before going to bed.  Praying together is one of the most intimate things you can do as a couple.

Not only is it an act of intimacy, but your combined prayers are the most powerful, and effective weapon that the two of you have to fight the attacks of Satan.

prayers about marriage

John 10:10 says that Satan comes to steal, kill, and destroy. Believe us, Satan would like nothing better than to destroy your marriage. In fact, he’ll even use you as a weapon.

Why? Because if your marriage dissolves, your children will be affected, your relationship with God will be affected, your witness will be affected, your community will be affected, and ultimately the church will be affected.

It’s like throwing a pebble into a pond, the ripples are far reaching. This is why you must take an offensive approach with your prayer life today! If you don’t know how to pray it is crucial that you make an effort to learn.

Not because the family that prayers together stays together but because it increases your odds of success.

We have seen situations in our lives completely turn around just through consistent prayer coupled with our faith.  If you haven’t been praying with your mate and for your mate, start today.  Prayer is one of the most powerful spiritual weapons that you have!

Prayer Tips

On the Internet (in Pinterest), we stumbled upon the prayers below that you can pray for your marriage. Corresponding scriptures are included below each prayer request. We’re sure this was less of a stumble and more of a leading. God, and Darlene Schacht (from originally wrote them together, no doubt. (FYI: Cindy LOVES Darlene’s web site and recommends wives visit it, regularly.)

Someone wrote: “Prayer has the biggest impact on your marriage. Use it as your everyday tool.” We agree. Below is a GREAT tool to use for your marriage. May it bless you both in your marital union!


1.  We would draw closer to God.

Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. (James 4:8)

2.  Our marriage would be a testimony of faith.

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. (1 Timothy 4:12)

3.  We would fulfill the responsibilities given to each of us as husband and wife.

From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. (Luke 12:48)

4.  We would be content with little or much.

For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. (1 Timothy 6:7-8)

5.  We will run to God in times of trouble.

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” (Psalm 91:1-2)

6.  For good health.

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. (Proverbs 16:24)

7.  We would stand strong against the pull of this world and the spiritual warfare that theaters our faith and our marriage.

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:10-12)

8.  We would encourage each other with our words.

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. (Ephesians 4:29)

9.  We would be patient with each other.

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. (Ephesians 4:1-3)

10. God would put a hedge of protection around our marriage.

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” (Psalm 91:1-2)

Henry Blackaby says:

“As we pray our attention is turned towards God and we become more receptive to aligning our lives with His will. He won’t equip us with His power while we’re racing off to our next appointment! His Spirit won’t empower us if we’re oblivious to what He’s saying. He requires our complete attention.”

We hope God has got your complete attention, as far as how important it is to pray for your marriage. Pray that it will reveal and reflect the love of Christ to all who need to see Him clearer. It is our hope that as we pray together, God will grow our marriages to be the best they can be!
