More Scriptures on Marriage Restoration
Here are a few scriptures on marriage restoration.
James 5:16 (KJV) says:
“Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”
I believe this to be a vital verse of scripture on marriage restoration because it shows us that an honest confession of wrong doing paves the way for spiritual and emotional healing.
In Luke 4:18, the Bible tells us that Christ came “to heal the brokenhearted”.
Couples in need will do well to understand that their healing cannot simply come from the other person. In fact, they will both need Divine intervention as there is no substitute for Supernatural healing.
Whether couples are dealing with years of hurt, overcoming adultery, or constant fighting, we find that it is less than wise to leave God’s healing power out of the equation. In fact, it should be noted that Luke 4:18 bears out that one of the reasons why Christ came was to heal the many hurts that life tends to leave.
Forgiveness is not exactly an option in the Christian faith. This point is emphatically made in Matthew 6:15 when Jesus said:
“But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” (King James Version)
Of course, forgiveness does not mean that a spouse should facilitate negative behavior such as pornography, alcoholism, or abuse. But, it does mean that we should be willing to forgive our spouse just as God has forgiven us.

To the woman He said: “I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception; In pain you shall bring forth children; Your desire shall be for your husband, And he shall rule over you.”
Live joyfully with the wife whom you love all the days of your vain life which He has given you under the sun, all your days of vanity; for that is your portion in life, and in the labor which you perform under the sun.
A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon. Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.
1 Corinthians 7:2-4
Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.
For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she is released from the law of her husband.
Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
2 Corinthians 6:14-15
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?
So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
“So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” They said to Him, “Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away?” He said to them, “Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so. And I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and whoever marries her who is divorced commits adultery.” His disciples said to Him, “If such is the case of the man with his wife, it is better not to marry.”
