Prayer For Hard Times In A Relationship
Lord, my relationship has become difficult. There is fighting and unease. There's tension and resentment. I feel that I have nowhere to turn.
Please let there be peace between my partner and I. Grant us the kind of peace that only you can give, Lord, and help us to feel at ease with one another. Drain away any resentment, anger, or tension that has built up between us. Help us to seek compromise rather than struggling with one another in order to win.
Please bless our home to be a place of peace and restfulness, as it should be.
Thank you, Father. Amen.
Dear God, I ask that you please heal the damage that has built up through the long struggle my partner and I have been through in our relationship. Please bless us both with the wisdom to take the knowledge of what we've done wrong and use it to make things better.
Lord, let love suffuse our relationship. Let it fill every corner of our lives, healing the rift between us. Help my partner and I to love one another as Christ loves the Church, as you love your human children: unconditionally and respectfully.
In Christs' Name, amen."
Heavenly Father, I profess that I do not understand my partner's needs. I don't know how to fix our problems.
Please open my eyes to my partner so that I can see why he or she acts the way they do. And please help me to understand, too, my own motivations and needs so that I can know when I am in the wrong.
Lord, grant us both a greater understanding of one another, and take away the preconceived notions and assumptions that are keeping us from truly communicating. Bring my partner and I closer together, and closer to you, than ever before.
In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
Dear Lord God, I feel like I am stuck in a relationship that has no sense of direction, and this is causing a lot of agony in my life. I know that you put my partner and I together for a higher purpose. Help us to walk in that purpose together. Father, show us areas we need to grow as individuals and as a couple. Grant us the grace to follow what you tell us to do. Fill us with the courage to step out of our comfort zones and what the world calls normal so that we can represent the kingdom and glorify your holy name. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
God Almighty, your name is always glorified when the relationships of your children thrive. Please transform our relationship so that it may align with your plans and your word. Let this transformation helps us be salt and light to other couples that are struggling in their relationships. Uproot the bad seeds that have been planted in our relationship by the world and let your word be the only standard upon which we measure ourselves. May your love and grace transform our hearts and minds that we may live for the glory of your holy name. In Jesus' name, we believe and pray. Amen
Lord, I take comfort in the fact that you know all things. My relationship is struggling, and I don't know what to do. Please reveal to me the things that I, or my partner, can do better in order for our relationship to please you.
And if it's time to end the relationship, please help me to see and accept this. Open my eyes to any abuse that I may be suffering, and give me the strength to escape it. If my partner is hiding something from me, let it come to light so that I can make an informed decision.
In Jesus' Name, amen."
Father God, I am struggling to understand my husband, and he doesn't understand me either. Things between us do not seem to be working. But Father God, I know that nothing is impossible with you. You know us inside and out. You know our hurts and pains and how to mend our broken hearts. Help us to understand each other. Remove any preconceived assumptions we have about each other from our hearts. Help us to see each other the way you see us. Bring us closer together than we were before. Thank you, Lord, for answering our prayers. In Jesus' name, Amen
Almighty God, we ask you today to help us show love to each other, instead of animosity. Let this relationship be guided by the love you have for us and not our selfish interests. May our hearts be filled with your overflowing love. Help us to overflow with that love, and spread love to others wherever we go. Holy Spirit of God, remind us of your unconditional love so that we can always walk in your love as a couple. Give us the grace to be kind to one another even when we disagree. In Jesus' name. Amen.
