Prayers for marriages

Week 260: Couples Who Have Been Disowned by Their Children Please join us this week in praying for couples that have been disowned by their children. The nature and causes of fractured family relationships are varied, complex and rarely one-sided. The division can be the choice of the parents or the child/children. Regardless, the division is always painful to someone, if not to everyone.

One variety of fractured family relationships is when children disown their parents. The impetus for this separation can be rooted in bad parenting choices or in the equally bad choices of adult children. In either case, the painful effects the division has on the disowned couple can be a challenge to the very existence of their own husband/wife relationship.

If the estrangement from their children is the result of bad parenting choices, particularly if those choices were those of one parent (for example, an absentee father or an overly protective/smothering mother), the other spouse may harbor resentment and blame. No marriage will last long if one spouse holds over the head of the other the responsibility of such devastating hurt as the loss of a child’s affection. 

On the other hand, if the relational fracture with their children is the result of the children’s bad choices (for example, if children decide or are convinced by others that their parents are a drag on their life style or relationship), the couple can feel bewildered, even abandoned, and be pressed into the situation of trying to fill the gap in each other’s life that has been left by their children, a gap they are ill-equipped to fill.

Please pray this week that couples disowned by their children will

  • Cast their burden on Christ, for He cares for them
  • Realize that harboring resentment or blame will not repair the rift with their children or enhance their marriage
  • Forgive and/or seek the forgiveness of their spouse as their particular situations demand
  • Forgive and/or seek the forgiveness of their children as their particular situations demand
  • Pray for their children without ceasing
  • Keep doors of communication open with each other
  • Seek the wise counsel of friends and professionals
  • Try to live life positively and joyfully despite this great hurt
  • Never, never give up

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. Blessings on my spouse and I

Father God, I thank you for who you are and for the promises that you have made concerning me and my spouse. Your Word is ever true and your promise of blessings and multiplication that you have promised 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.

  1. Remove all negativity 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.

  1. No weapon formed against our marriage shall prosper

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.

No weapon that is formed against my marriage will stand. Click To Tweet

  1. 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. Re-Build Trust and Honesty

Lord, it is your will that we be reconciled together and that our love for each other will grow and blossom, no matter what has happened between us in the past.

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.

Lord, I command seven-fold restoration of the trust and honesty that the evil one has stolen from us, in Jesus name.

  1. Remove bitterness, anger, and all manners of negative emotions.

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.

  1. 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.
