Prayer For Couples In Crisis

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,


Dear God,

I come to You today and pray for marriages that are facing any kind of crisis. You know everyone's situation well, so I ask that You intercede on behalf of husbands and wives. May You fill their hearts with courage, comfort, understanding and love. Please shed light on the different circumstances and remind everyone of the hope they have in You. I pray for protection against the schemes of the enemy. Send angels to guard our hearts and minds. I pray for reconciliation, I pray for healing, I pray for stability, I pray for transformation, I pray for anointing, I pray for joy, I pray for encouragement, I pray for accountability, I pray for more strength and more faith in Jesus' name Amen!

Dear Lord, please hear this prayer for our marriage, which needs Your divine assistance. Intervene to remove any sinfulness that separates us. We pray for peace, joy, and sacrificial love to renew this relationship for us and our entire family. Guide us to the help our relationship requires and give us the humility to accept that help. May we continually turn to You in times of need. Let no one contribute to the disintegration of this union. We trust that You know our needs, and that Your will can be done for our marriage and for all marriages needing Your urgent assistance.


Dear God, we place before You our marriage and family, requesting Your urgent and divine assistance.

We humbly pray that You bring healing, calm, peace, and clarity of thinking to all involved in our current situation. In some ways, our hearts have hardened and the desire to heal our marriage may at times have wavered. We pray for softened hearts that can listen to one another. We pray for an openness to rehabilitation of our relationship, whether or not we feel hope or even if at times we fear it long over or decayed beyond repair. Help us make a new beginning, putting the past behind. We may have done things we regret, but with humility, we approach one another again.

Please heal the wounds we brought into our marriage through childhood and other life experiences. Help us recognize how those wounds can affect how we relate to one another now. Please assist us in seeking and accepting help and healing where needed.

We pray for a recommitment to the health of the relationship. Lead us on the path to trusting one another again. We ask You to drive away fear and pride, and to give us courage for the road ahead.

We pray You will infuse us with hope in all aspects of this relationship, even the deepest and darkest corners. Please help us turn away from any temptations and addictions. Where necessary, lead us to experts in healing from these addictions and give us the humility to accept assistance.

Please help us focus on You and one another. Give us wisdom regarding the sacrificial love needed in our marriage. Intervene in any areas of injustice, infidelity, and impurity. Help us to forgive, and, as we process past hurts, help us to forgive again and again. Help us build a strong disposition of good will toward one another and help us remember the qualities in one another that initially drew us together. Give us patience as we await Your beautiful work in this marriage. May Your healing lead to deep reconciliation.

Since marriage is a covenant for life, may any false promise of counterfeit happiness with anyone else now lose its appeal. We beg You to remove any forces that separate us. We pray for Your guidance back to a strong marital commitment and ask for You to rekindle in us the beauty of the marital embrace.

We know that many children of divorce face anxiety, hidden and unspoken pain, lack of confidence, feelings of abandonment, lack of protection, and anger. Please help us care for and protect our children. Help us strengthen our intact family structure which was created for their security, mental and emotional development, and moral education. May that motivate us to try harder and surrender to Your loving guidance. Knowing that divorce causes suffering in the immediate family, the extended family, the circle of friends, the generations to come, and society as a whole, help us sustain our marriage as a witness to overcoming difficulties and honoring the marital bond.

Please send with haste solid and faithful friends to stand by us, to share the truth in charity, and to be listening ears and advocates for our marriage. Send people who are faithful to true teachings of marriage, family, and life. May no one in our circle of friends or family contribute to the disintegration of this marriage. Help us to reject and stand against any false support from others who try to convince us that our marriage is irredeemable, hopeless, or too difficult. Protect us from believing that abandoning our vows will lead us to happiness. We call the angels, archangels, and saints to duty, to strengthen and encourage our hearts, and to quiet the voices and influence of any people who drive a wedge between us or who feed the fire of discontent.

Help us embrace sacrifice and suffering as a path to holiness. We know this is how saints are made and how long-married couples overcome periods of difficulty in order to finish their story together, not quitting before the last beautiful chapters are written.

Help me to be compassionate and tolerant towards our differences and
forgive me for the ways that I have hurt our relationship.
Help me to forgive my spouse for the ways he/she has hurt me.

the way you want me to.

Please pray for us, my husband has become emotionally distant and although he has not physically left us he has emotionally abandoned me and will not speak to me. It has been two and a half months.

My son is feeling the strain between us and is only two years old. I am fighting for my marriage but I am exhausted and hurt, I pray that Jesus heals us both and allows for us to come together as one again. We are loving parents to a beautiful child, I pray Jesus can help open up my husband's heart and show him all the love and compassion he needs to work on repairing our relationship and allowing me back into his life.

Please pray that there is peace, love, and hope restored for our family, I realize that in Jesus miracles can happen so as you pray I pray for healing and a miracle that will allow us to come back together.

I love my family and my commitment before God to be married was a serious one. I already told my husband I would not divorce him he would have to do it if he wanted out of the relationship, pray his eyes open to the seriousness of the marriage commitment and that God touches his heart and his mind so that he can think rationally once again.

All things can be accomplished in Christ, and my faith keeps me going daily, I give these worries up to God, that he has the answers and he will show me the way. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.

Father, we bring this marriage before Your throne of mercy. We trust that You are able to intervene and restore them, to unite this family with the unlimited resources of heaven. Thank You Father for knowing exactly what they need and how to help them. You are our Awesome, covenant keeping God!

Holy Father, I call on Your name and Your victorious nature on behalf of this marriage. I invite Your truth to be revealed to both Cassandra and her husband. I invite You to destroy the strongholds of pride and allow them both to see what You need them to see about themselves. I declare that Cassandra's feelings of being trapped and doubts about marriage are from the destroyer and they are to be thrown into the sea, buried and never to return. Let Your staying power hold them together. Let Your faithfulness become their faithfulness toward each other. Let Your humility become their own toward each other. It is in Jesus name and for HIs glory, that I pray these things believing they are ALL possible. Amen
