Prayer For Ex Spouse

Heavenly Father, as we strive to continuously build a stronger marriage, help us to forgive one another for things that may hurt or offend us. Help us to walk in forgiveness and never lose sight of the fact that you have forgiven us. Help us to show your mercy and grace to our spouse each time they need it and not bring up past hurts or failures. Let us be an example of forgiveness to not only our spouse but to those around us so we can continue to show your love to all we meet. Help us to also forgive ourselves if we struggle with condemnation. Thank you for your life-giving words of truth that we may be redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen

Heavenly Father we come before you to thank you for all you have done and continue to do in our lives and marriage. We come before you today, God, asking for a stronger bond of unity in our marriage covenant. Father we ask that you will give us the ability to be a united front for you letting nothing come between us. Help us, Father to identify and work through anything that is not pleasing to you so we can continually reach higher levels of unity in our marriage spiritually, physically, and mentally. We are thankful and excited to see the work of your hand as we do our best to seek your face daily. We love you and thank you for all of these things. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen!

Dear Lord,
The Power of a Praying Ex-wifeHelp me to be a good ex-wife. I fully realize that I don't have what it takes to be one without your help. Take my selfishness, impatience, and irritability and turn them into kindness, long-suffering, and willingness to bear all things. Take my old emotional habits, mindsets, automatic reactions, rude assumptions, and self-protective stance and make me patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle and self- controlled. Take the hardness of my heart and break down the walls with your gentle touch of revelation. Give me a new heart and work in me your love, peace, and joy. I am not able to rise above who I am at this moment. Only you can transform me.

Show me where I have failed in my heart, especially with regard to my ex-husband. I'm sorry for the times I've been unloving, critical, angry, resentful, disrespectful, or unforgiving toward him. Help me to put aside any hurt, anger or disappointment I feel and forgive him the way you do totally and completely, no looking back. Make me a tool of reconciliation, peace, and healing in this relationship. Enable us to communicate well and rescue us from the threshold of hurtful words and actions and disrespect where the realities of not seeing him as child of God exist.

Make me my ex-husband's prayer support. Help me to create a peaceful spirit around us. Teach me how to take care of myself and stay healthy. Grow me into a creative and confident woman who is rich in mind, soul, and spirit. Make me the kind of woman that can rise above and love my ex-husband according to your will.

I lay all my expectations at your cross. I release my ex-husband from the burdens of any expectations where I should be looking to you. Help me accept him the way he is and not try to change him. I realize that in some way he may never change, but at the same time, I release him to change in ways I never thought he could. I leave all the changing that needs to be done in your hands, fully accepting that neither of us is perfect and never will be. Only you, oh Lord, are perfect and I look to you to perfect both of us.

Teach me how to pray for my ex-husband and make my prayer a true language of your love. Create new love for him. Show me how to love him and how to communicate it in a way he can clearly perceive it. Bring unity between us so we can be in agreement as parents who love our sons dearly. May the God of patience and comfort grant us to be like-minded as parents according to your holy will. Make us loving parents not pursuing separate, competitive or independent lives but working together, overlooking each other's faults and weakness for the greater good of our sons. Help us pursue the things which make for peace in our new type of family. May we be joined together in the same because of the love we have for you and our children.

I pray that our commitment to you and to our sons grows stronger. Show us how to be respectful with each interaction. Help me to understand things from his perspective. Reveal to me what he wants and needs and show me potential problems before they arise. Breathe your life into my ex-husband, our sons, and me.

Make me a new ex-wife. Give me a fresh perspective, a positive outlook, and a renewed relationship with my ex-husband. Help me see him with new eyes, new appreciation, new compassion, and new acceptance. Give my ex-husband a new ex-wife in me.


I ask you to heal my wounded heart. I surrender all the broken pieces to you for healing. Don't allow me to let bitterness live here. Help me remember that I have a beautiful purpose for my life living for you. My loving family, children and friends are more than I could ask for and let their love embrace me during this difficult time. I don't understand how this is happening, but I believe that you are working through me and have a plan for my life. Help me to see your diving purpose in all of this. Let my heart be filled with your purpose. Help me to never speak negatively about my spouse, and instead be filled with peace and serenity. This won't come quickly, but with your help my heart will be whole again. I believe in that and I believe in You. You gave your Son for me, I will give you my trust and heart.

In Jesus' Name We Pray,


I spend my days pretending things are fine. I use all my energy to put on a smiling face and show my children that I am strong and we will be able to get through this. But I am running out of strength. I am feeling defeated and broken down. It's getting harder with each passing day to get out of bed. The world seems grim and my future too dark. Please fill my heart with the knowledge of your love, your goodness and your faithfulness. Remind me that it is okay to cry, that it is okay to let out my frustrations and ask for your help. Remind me how valuable I am to you. I want to feel your loving arms surround me and lift me up from the dark hole I am in. I want to use this time to draw closer to you and gain a stronger relationship! I do not want this pain to tear me down. Give me the strength to continue on. I entrust my life with you.


I cry out to you Lord,
I sit here feeling completely broken. I never thought this could happen to me or our family. I wanted to pretend everything was perfect, and I ignored the problems right in front of me. I am completely lost. I feel anger for all the hurt that they have caused in our lives. I cannot forgive them for what they have done right now, but I trust in you Lord. I allow you to forgive them through me. Each time I feel anger, bitterness, revenge, or hate remind me to allow your forgiveness and love to flow through me. I will take the high road and show all the amazing things that the Lord can do in tragedy.

Dear Heavenly Father,

I pray to you with all that I have for my ex-husband Kevin to return to me and to his three children. Our marriage fell apart after 15 years because we did not have Christ as our center. We were divorced in Feb, 2011 but I have never stopped loving him.

Before he left us an affair began which is still continuing. Approx. 3 months ago, Kevin found his way back to you and to the church and the changes in him have been amazing. Throughout this journey I have felt you telling me I am meant to be with him as he is the love of my life. Even though it seems the odds are stacked against us, because he is a believer now, I feel the impossible can be accomplished because with faith in you all things are possible. Please help expose Christina to him for what she is, and restore his heart to me and our family. He is the love of my life.

I have spoken to our pastor who has revealed to me that he speaks to Kevin frequently, and that he is also hurting very much. Though it is difficult to wait on your timing, I am placing all my prayers and faith in you to restore our relationship and our family. I pray this prayer to you with all my heart. I love you Lord. Amen
