Prayer For Adulterers

Lord, You know that my husband has been living a lie and is deeply embroiled in the sin of fornication and adultery. Father I pray that You would move speedily in this distressing situation.. and I ask that he would stop seeing this other woman.. and that this ungodly relationship will be brought to an end. I pray that You would intervene, as only You can.. to bring this on-going, adulterous relationship to final closure.

Lord.. distressing though this situation is, I know that You are a God who can mend broken relationships and I pray that in Your goodness and grace You would restore our marriage and renew my husbands love for me. I pray that the Holy Spirit would convict him of his sin and that he would turn from his fascination with this other woman to Jesus - for saving grace.

Living in a marriage triangle is getting more than I can bear and I pray that You would give me the sufficient grace I need to deal with this situation.. and the sufficient strength to live godly in Christ Jesus - despite the deep grief and pain I am going through.

I earnestly pray for my husband to turn away from his wicked ways and look to Christ as Saviour, for I know that without Him, my husband will be enslaved to sin and remain without hope in the world.. - lost in his trespasses and wallowing in immoral acts.. Thank You that it is not Your will that anyone should perish.. but that all come to faith in Jesus. Help me Lord, to trust Your good work in both of our lives, and may I learn to wait patiently for You to fulfill Your perfect plan in both our lives.. in Jesus name I pray,


Loving Lord, we come before You today to ask for Your steadfast love and healing comfort on all those that are grieving, as a result of a spouse that has proved to be unfaithful to their marriage vows but we also pray for those that are blinded to the destructive effect that adultery has on marriages and families.. and pray for godly repentance and a change of heart.. so that there may be a speedy reconciliation between husband and wife..

We pray for restoration and reconciliation in all marriages that have been adversely affected by gross sexual sin and adultery. But we also lift up those who have already repented of their sin of adultery.. and ask that You would be gracious to the husband or wife who broke their marriage vows, but has come to a realisation of the devastating result of their adulterous affair. We pray Your mercy and grace on all who genuinely seek to change their behaviour and have confessed their sin before You.

We pray that in Your grace.. marriages that have suffered from the devastating effect of adultery may be restored, and we ask that through godly repentance on the one hand.. and true forgiveness on the other, You would heal any pain that was caused, release any shame or resentment and draw both partners into a closer marriage union and more intimate relationship with each other - and with You.. this we ask in Jesus name,


Heavenly Father, we lift up this dear man to You who has been so devastated by his wife's betrayal and her adulterous affair. Lord this is a dear brother in Christ who has been heart-broken by his wife's betrayal, and we pray that You would touch him at his very point of need and fill his heart with Your special comfort and peace so that he may know that You are His heavenly Comforter, Who can heal his deepest pain - and that You are his ever present Helper, in this time of deep suffering.

We lift up his straying wife to You too.. and pray that You would touch her conscience, soften her heart bring her to the point of true repentance. We pray that she may recognize her sin and ask his forgiveness, (and for Yours Lord, too) and we pray that she may return her to her marriage relationship, with a better understanding of the unique bond between a man and his wife, which is so precious in Your sight and which can never be replaced or duplicated.

We pray that You would work in both their hearts so that they may not only be reconciled back together, but that they may discover a closeness in their marriage that they had not experienced before. This we ask in Jesus name to Your praise and glory,


Lord Jesus, I have sinned before You and committed adultery. Forgive me Lord for winking at my own sin while I was gratifying my fleshly lusts. I repent of my wrong actions and foolish choices and confess that I have sinned against You.. and have caused deep distress, not only to my spouse but to the wider family as well.

Help me Lord to live a life from this day on that is pleasing to You, for I choose to turn from my fleshly lusts and sexual sin, which has caused so much grief and pain. I pray that with Your help and strength, I may learn to walk in righteousness and purity from this day on.. and in a manner that is pleasing to You.

I pray that not only my actions but the thoughts of my mind may be cleansed and made pure. Help my inner heart to be purified of all lustful imaginings, which could cause me to be led astray.. and may I learn to bring into captivity every thought, in obedience of Christ.

For all the pain that I have caused to others, and especially to my spouse, I pray that You would heal the hurt and lessen the pain I've caused, so that in Your grace we may mend the rift that has come between us and draw closer to each other and to You. This I ask in Jesus name,


Heavenly Father, I have wandered far away from You and become deeply embroiled in an extra-marital affair from which I want to break free.. so that I may get my life back on track. Deliver me I pray from this life of lies and deception.. Deliver me from the guilt and shame that is overwhelming me .. and I pray that in Your grace You would help me to flee every kind of sexual immorality, or of any impurity, or fleshly lust, from this day forward..

I have been weak-willed and careless in my Christian life and utterly foolish and selfish in my own marriage and my adultery has adversely affected the lives of too many people deliver me from the shame I feel, for I know that I am guilty on all counts.. and my sin is constantly on my mind -

Lord I confess my fault to You. I pray for Your forgiveness and repent of all my adulterous sins, but I need to ask forgiveness of my spouse.. and all the other people whom I have hurt due to this affair.. and I ask that in Your grace You would help me to do what is right. Oh Lord help and deliver me from the guilt and pain I feel and from the dark cloud of shame that is hanging over me like a shroud. Return to me the joy that I once knew in You.. and lead me in the way of righteousness in His name sake,


Heavenly Father, we come to You to lift up the increasing numbers of couples that are facing adultery in their marriages both the one that is feeling betrayed and let down by an unfaithful spouse.. and the one that has been foolishly led astray, by sexual sins and the gratification of the flesh.

We ask that You would intervene in all marriages where adultery and infidelity are taking place.. and pray for Your healing hand on every life that is touched by the destructive nature of adultery.. and each marriage that has been impacted and devastated by sexual sins and infidelity in their marriages

We ask You to intervene in each situation where infidelity, fornication and adultery has caused such sadness, pain and loss of trust. We also pray that You would revive the marriages of couples that have gone through the painful discovery that their spouse has been unfaithful and the devastating repercussions that are caused through the adultery of ones marriage partners.

We pray that You would disentangle the web of deceit that is woven through an adulterous relationship and ask that in Your goodness and grace You would touch the hearts of both partners, so that godly repentance may be received with godly forgiveness we ask this in Jesus name,


Lord to my shame I have committed adultery, broken my marriage vows.. both to You and to my spouse and caused untold pain and I am so sorry Lord and repent of all my sin and the evil consequences of my fleshy weakness.

Lord I confess that I am weak in this area, but that is no excuse and I ask that in the power of the Holy Spirit You would help me to turn right away from this gross and evil sexual sin. Help me to overcome temptation and not to fall prey to the enticements of flesh lusts.

Help me to run from sexual sin as the Bible says, and to break free from any sexual soul-ties that I have made - and keep me I pray, from being tempted to make any further contact. I ask that You would help me to resist all temptation and to help me make a complete break with this ungodly part of my life.

Purify my heart I pray and enable me to turn away forever from this fleshly weakness which I know must be called for what it is ungodly sexual sin - adultery. Help me to no longer live for my own gratification but rather I pray that I may be enabled to change my whole behaviour towards my spouse - and live in marriage union with my spouse, as You have outlined in Your Word.

Give us both fresh, new love for each other and may this evil that I have done not become a stumbling-block in our marriage but the start of a new closer fellowship with each other - and with You. This I ask in Jesus name,


Father, I have been deeply hurt and grieved because of my spouse's adultery and the pain at times is more than I can bear. It is so hard to come to terms with the fact that the one person in your life that you are closest to.. and have trusted implicitly, is discovered to be an adulterer who has betrayed the loving trust we have between us.

I lay my brokenness before You and pour out my heart to You, for I have no one to turn to Lord but You.. and I need Your comfort and healing touch to get through this tremendous sadness.

Father.. in my heart I know that if I nurse this grief and continue to feel sorry for myself.. that it is likely to turn into sour bitterness and acidic resentment. Prevent me Lord from going down that self-indulgent route, but rather heal me I pray.

Touch the areas deep within that are still raw with pain; bathe my wounds with Your love and peace.. and bring me through this ordeal, stronger and more able to be of service to You.

Help me to forgive too.. I know that in my own strength this would be impossible, but I ask that You would give me the sufficient grace to forgive their unfaithfulness.. and the ability to remember their sin no more this I ask in Jesus name,
