Prayer For A Couple That Is Struggling

Father in heaven, you are our God. You brought my partner and me together. That is why I boldly come before your throne of grace today, Lord, asking you to heal our relationship. There has been so much hurt between my partner and me, caused by arguments, pride, and the schemes of the enemy. Lord, heal our hearts and minds. Help us to see ourselves as being on the same side, and not against each other. Wash away any bitterness that is in our hearts with the blood of your Son, Jesus. Restore our relationship and make us fall deeply in love again with each other. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.

Father God, I am struggling to understand my husband, and he doesn't understand me either. Things between us do not seem to be working. But Father God, I know that nothing is impossible with you. You know us inside and out. You know our hurts and pains and how to mend our broken hearts. Help us to understand each other. Remove any preconceived assumptions we have about each other from our hearts. Help us to see each other the way you see us. Bring us closer together than we were before. Thank you, Lord, for answering our prayers. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Father, give us peace as a couple. We argue and just don't get along with each other. I am not even sure we like each other anymore. We have done everything that we know how to do so we can keep our relationship together. But Father, we need to stop doing things our own way and start doing things your way. Show us your way. Guide our thoughts and our actions. Father, we know that your grace is sufficient for us as a couple. We have the confidence that we will have victory as a couple because we put our relationship in your hands. Our trust is in you. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.

Father God, there is disharmony in our relationship. We have tried to reconnect, but things seem to be getting worse. Lord, you say in your word that two are better than one, and I believe this to be true. But God, right now, we are on the verge of a divorce and desperately need divine intervention to salvage our marriage. Rekindle our love so that we can remain as one. War on our behalf. Do not let the enemy come between us. Bind us with cords of love that can never be broken. Help us to understand each other's needs and give us wisdom so that we can rebuild this relationship. In Jesus' name, we pray, Amen.

Jesus, I lift up my marriage to you. It is broken. It sometimes feels irreparable. If I'm honest, I'm not sure I want it to continue, and I have no idea what else to do to fix it. But you are holy and you are powerful and you are all-knowing. Please enter in. You desire us to be whole. You desire us to live out our oneness on a daily basis. And to do that, we will need your help. Protect us from the enemy. Place a hedge of protection around our relationship. Keep all others out. Bring us healing and strengthen our partnership. Help me do things that build into us and not tear us apart. Today, I am declaring that I am fighting for my marriage. Amen.

Jesus, I lift up my husband to you. Thank you for providing for me through him. Thank you that he goes to work each day. (If he is unemployed, please provide work for him and provide our daily bread.) Please bless the work of his hands and help him find fulfillment in what he does, no matter what the job is. Help me encourage him and show gratitude, even when it's painful to do so. Help me to partner with him by handling our finances with care. Amen.

Jesus, I lift up my husband to you. You know the struggles of his heart and mind, better than I do. You see everything that he faces and battles on the inside. Please deliver him from evil. Please lead him not into temptation. Please keep all outside influences that are inappropriate away from him. Please dull his appetite for unrighteousness and please repel him from anything that could hurt him or us. Where he is in bondage to anything, please break those ties. Help him choose you and me over any damaging choice. Amen.

Jesus, I lift up my heart to you. It is cold and hard and bitter roots have formed. You know why and I don't think you blame me. I truly think you understand. But I don't want to be known as an angry or sad or pathetic woman. Regardless of my circumstances, I want to be a woman who is close to you, and receives her value from you, who knows she is loved, and who has the strength to persevere and live fully no matter what. So I give you my heart. Show me what's inside. Cleanse me deep down. I give you all of the hidden places, all of the things I am clinging to so tightly even my pain and entitlement and resentment and anger and I ask that you will forgive me, change me, heal me, and strengthen me. Amen.
