Prayer For Committing Adultery
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.
I will exalt You, my God the King; I will praise Your name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom. The LORD is near to me and I call on You, in truth. Hear my prayer, O Lord; let my cry for help come to You. Do not hide Your face from me when I am in distress. Turn Your ear to me; when I call, answer me quickly. You will fulfill the desires of those who fear You; You hear my cry and save me and my spouse.
Lord, I have faith in God, and You said, If anyone says to this mountain, Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Lord, You know my mountain of circumstances in my marriage. So I am believing You, that whatever I ask for in prayer, that I believe that I have received it, and it will be mine. And when I stand praying, if I hold anything against anyone, I forgive them, so that my Father in heaven may forgive me of my sins. Lord, with man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.
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,
Lord, I repent of all the sin in my life. I have committed adultery against my spouse, and I am so sorry. The decision I made to cheat on the partner you placed in my life was and is a terrible act on my part. Please forgive me. Please allow my spouse to forgive me in time, and heal our marriage. I am truly sorry for the wrong that I have done, and the hurt that I have caused to You as well as my family. If there is any sin that I don't know of, please bring it to my mind that I may repent as well. Please forgive me Lord of any pride, rebellion, vanity, jealousy, judging, distrust, prejudice, dishonesty, theft, greed, spiritual adultery or fornication, or any spiritual murder. I ask this in Your precious name, amen.
Dear Lord, Your Word clearly states that I shall not commit adultery. The commandment is simple and I must honor my partner and not defile the marriage bed under any circumstances. I pray that whenever I feel distant from my partner or angry or hurt, let me not respond to these fleshy emotions. Let me seek Your face at all times. This is my prayer, Amen.
Dear Lord, I pray that You give me the strength to run from sexual sin! Sexual immorality is not only a betrayal to my marital partner, but this is a sin against my own body. I pray that my body is a temple of Your Holy Spirit which is within me. Therefore, my body is not my own to give away so freely. Help me to honor You Lord with my body, 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
