Return to Marriage Prayer

I woke up from a dream, of a woman who I have never met breaking down to me on how her husband had left. I could feel the burn of her pain so deeply, as I embraced her and began to pray. When I woke up, that burden was still pressed on my heart and I felt God calling me not just to pray, but to share this prayer as He prayed it with me. So this is the prayer. Pray it for your marriage if you need to, pray it over someone’s marriage who you know is going through a rough patch. Whatever you do, don’t stop praying.

For the Broken Marriage

For the broken marriages on the brink of separation and divorce. I pray healing in your hearts. I pray for restoration and deliverance. I pray that there is peace in your spirit and in your marriage. I pray for reconciliation. I pray that if there has been a change in the feelings for each other, that there will be a renewal of insight for each other. I pray that the childish natures will be transformed into maturity. I pray that where there has been deceit, that there will be honesty. I pray where there has been darkness, that there will be transparency. I pray that where there has been hurt, there will be healing. I pray that where there is discord that there will be unity. I pray where there has been misunderstanding that there will be effective communication.

I pray God that You will rebuild and renew. I pray that God that You will bring clarity to their minds. I pray that You will console and hold up the hearts that are too broken and weak. I pray that each spouse would be honest with themselves. That they would be able to look internally on what You desire for them and how You desire for them to change and move. I pray that You will bring a fresh lens.

The Abandoned Spouse

For the spouse who has been abandoned, I pray that You will remind them that they still belong to someone, they are still loved by someone, they are still chosen first by someone, they are still being pursued by someone….You. I pray that they will find You in ways that they never knew or could understand before. I pray that instead of running away from You that they will run towards You. I pray that You will transform their hearts from victim to victor. I pray that they will allow You to dive into the deepest parts of their soul and restore them. That the burning of the pain of loss will be cooled with an awareness and comfort of what they can gain through You.

The Conflicted Spouse

For the spouse who can’t make up their mind. I pray that you will bring them direction. And when You bring that direction, I pray that their eyes, heart, and soul will be in the position to receive that clear direction and respond to it. Respond to it without fear of what they would look like, without fear of what others may say, without fear of how they will stay or move on. I pray that You will rebuild their confidence in themselves and that they will see themselves as You see them.

The Family and Friends

I pray for the family and friends who become involved by choice and by default. I pray that You will counsel them on what to say, on how to speak words of life to these spouses. I pray that You will help those family and friends through their own grief of the pain, shock, and confusion that hits them when they discover the news. I pray that You will help those family and friends not to take out their emotions on these couples. I pray that You will bring insight and clarity. I pray that You will show them how no to disappear, but how to show up stronger and love on these couples with your agape love. I pray that these family and friends will impart Your wisdom. I pray that in their presence Your peace will abound. I pray that You will help these family and friends to be encouraging and not disruptive nor destructive to what You are trying to do with these marriages.

Back to the couples, I pray that Lord You will place them in the paths of those who can be used by You to speak truth, maturity, love, peace, and wisdom into their lives individually and into their marriage. I pray that no boundaries are crossed unless it’s to save a life.

Giving Thanks

God I thank You for how You see us and know every detail of us, even when we have no clue ourselves. I thank You that You are able to take every sour situation and turn it sweet for our good and Your Glory. I thank You that You are the ultimate example of forgiveness. I thank You that You reach us into the depths of the valley’s in life and that You can easily reach us when we’re on the high points as well. Thank You for scriptures like Psalm 23, Jeremiah 29:11-13, Romans 8:28… Thank You for simply loving us, even when we find it hard to love others and ourselves.

In Jesus Name, Amen.

prayers for broken marriage

Do you feel like your relationship is in trouble? Perhaps your better half has left, your marriage is on the rocks, or you simply feel out of place with the person you are with. You value the relationship that you have with your husband or wife, and you honor and respect the vows that you took in front of God and witnesses. Despite the best of intentions, there are times when even the most perfect relationship has problems and issues. It is common for a member of the relationship to run-away from those problems, or refuse to face them by trying to leave the relationship and the home you’ve made together. Do not despair, there is hope, you just have to find faith and encouragement from our gracious Lord above.

Prayer can repair the most damaged marriage. The power of God can bring two people, who are intended to be together, back into a love filled marriage. Your union will know the love from the blessings of God if you keep your eyes on Him in all things. Through prayer, anything is possible. God is all-powerful and all-knowing, He can mend any bridges that may have been burned by conflict, clear away any confusion, and give you the power to forgive when needed most. If your relationship is in need of a blessing and you have nowhere to turn, always consider the power of prayer. God is always there to listen, and his followers on earth are always ready to assist in having your prayer requests heard.

“And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.” Ephesians 4:32

Prayer for Financial Peace In Marriage

I lift up my heart to You today, my precious Lord. Please help us to rely on You more in our marriage when it comes to our finances. We can be easily distracted by the amount of money in our bank account, or even by the jobs we currently have. Help us not to trust in the matter of money itself, but more importantly, trust in Your economy and Your word. May Your Holy Spirit fill us with wisdom in how to manage our finances, give us generous hearts to give to those in need, and teach us to not worry about money so much. We pray there would be peace in our marriage, especially over finances, at all times, and in all ways. May Your presence keep us grounded, keep us calm, and keep us in Your will always.

Prayer for Clear Communication in Relationships

Lord, I feel like my partner and I have had a difficult time clearly communicating with one another lately. We are both lacking in our compassion and understanding towards each other. I pray we would be better than this, and that You will open our hearts to You. Holy Spirit, please help us be better communicators with each other. I pray that we would live with understanding for what the other person is going through, and that we are thoughtful in our words and actions. Amen.
