Prayer For Adultery Forgiveness
Oh Lord, Builder of all things, I ask that You rebuild my marriage. My spouse has been unfaithful but has repented and returned to me. And yet, I find it hard to trust and easy to resent. Help me to be forgiving without being enabling, and trusting without being foolish. Help us to rebuild this marriage together into a stronger union than it was before. Let us experience joy and gladness together. Amen.
Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me. Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight; so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge. Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb; you taught me wisdom in that secret place.
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
Then I will teach transgressors your ways, so that sinners will turn back to you. Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, you who are God my Savior, and my tongue will sing of your righteousness. Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare your praise.
Lord, I know that I am a sinner. Please forgive me for [insert specific incident or issue], and please guide me to become more like You. Please help me to watch my words and actions, and guard me against future mistakes and errors. Thank you for sending your son, Jesus, to die for my sins and thank you for your forgiveness. In the name of Your son Jesus, I pray, amen.
Lord, please help me to remember the power of forgiveness, and please help me to extend this to [insert name(s)]. I know what it means to forgive, and I know all of the things You have forgiven me for, but the pain sometimes makes it difficult to forget and, at moments, to forgive. This is especially difficult due to my love for this person [or these people]. Please help me to move past what was said and done by filling my heart with forgiveness for [insert name(s)]. Please help me to focus on the importance of our relationship, and give us all strength to get back to a stronger place. In the name of Your son Jesus, I pray, amen.
Dear Lord, please forgive me for my sins [consider inserting details on specific situation]. I recognize that I made a mistake. I know that You forgive me, but I also ask that you help me to cope with the emotions I'm experiencing as a result of my error. Please guide me, sustain me and help heal me from the pain and shame that I am experiencing. Help me to remember that I am a child of God, and give me the power to make it through this season. In the name of Your son Jesus, I pray, amen.
Lord of Miracles, We come before you and lay this marriage in your hands. We ask that you would revive this husband and this wife, and draw them toward happy matrimony.
We ask that you would renew their love and passion for one another. We ask that you would untangle the conflicts and strife, and heal the hurts.
We ask that you would bring understanding and tenderness of heart. May they both embrace the miracle that you desire to do for them and with them. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
Dear Lord, I have committed adultery. I have broken the marriage vows that I made to you and to my spouse. I know that I have done an evil thing. I truly repent of my wrong doing. Help me to turn from this wickedness and never go back to ___________ again. I confess that I am powerless over this situation. I ask that you give me the power of the Holy Spirit to overcome this temptation. Help me to do my part by breaking the soul ties off all further communication with this person.
Your Word tells me that if I turn from my sin, commit my life to you and continue to walk in your commands then I will be forgiven and my soul will be saved from hell. I now choose to recommit my life to your will. Help me to no longer live for myself and my own desires, but for what is best for my marriage, my family and your will. I now allow the precious blood of Jesus to cover my sins. As I pray this the bible tells me that I am now washed white as snow, clean and pure. Help me to maintain my integrity, to see that adultery is NOT AN OPTION and that with your power I will daily overcome and be the man/woman you created me to be.
Lord, give me a fresh love for my spouse. I cannot love __________ the way they need to be loved. I allow you to love her/him through me. Make me a vessel of your love, your servitude and your faithfulness.
I ask all of this in Jesus name. amen
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,
