Prayer For Honesty In A Relationship
Dear Father God, there are so many marriages that are failing, which are leaving relationships devastated, lives fractured and hearts stricken with grief. And so today, I want to lift up all those that are struggling with a marriage relationship that is falling apart, and pray Your healing touch on so many who are facing separation or even divorce. I ask that in Your mercy, You would look down in pity and enable many of these fractured lives to be renewed by the touch of your mighty hand.
I lift up all that are in a marriage relationship, and pray that You would strengthen the bond of love and unity between them, so that their relationship may become stronger with each passing year. May forgiveness and grace, forbearance and peace become flowers in their heart that blossoms into the fruit of the Spirit in their lives, and may each husband and wife consider the needs of the other before they consider their own.
Establish I pray, healthy marriage relationships, which are grounded on biblical principles, where the Lord Jesus is the focus of their lives and the bedrock upon which their marriage is secured. May broken hearts and broken families be reunited in the love of Jesus, and may their children rise up and call their parents blessed as they see their parents honouring their Saviour, Jesus Christ. In Jesus' name,
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You, that You are the One Who heals the broken hearted and sets the captives free. Thank You, that You are the one that knows every intimate detail about our lives, and Who sticks closer than a brother. Thank You, Lord, that You have promised never to leave us nor forsake us but desire to give all your children the peace that passes understanding, as we look to Jesus and secure our hearts upon Him.
Thank You also, that You were the one that instituted marriage and ordained that a man should leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife, and that she in turn would honour and submit to her own husband under biblical principles. Lord, I confess that our marriage has become stale and the spark of love between us has become dim over time, so that we have become cool towards each other and careless towards You. Forgive us for allowing ourselves to slowly slide into this state of lukewarm love for each other and indifference towards You.
And so I ask for healing in our marriage and a revival of the love that we once had for each other. Help us together to seek You, and to once again build up our relationship into a happy, harmonious unity where Jesus is returned to His rightful position in our lives. Father, I confess that because we have become careless in our relationship with You, our relationship with each other also suffered. Renew a right spirit within us both, and may we seek first the Lord Jesus and His righteousness, knowing that a marriage that is grounded in Him is the only way for a relationship to truly be blessed. We ask this in Jesus' name,
Father God, I come to You in earnest pray asking that You would bring my future life-partner and help-meet into my life. Father, Your Word says that it is not good for a man or a woman to be alone and I ask that in Your grace You would provide me with the person Whom You have chosen to become my special life-partner and friend.
Prepare me I pray, in the days and months that lie ahead for this life-partnership, and help me to learn the importance of the biblical lessons, of thinking of others before we think of ourselves. Father, I know that my times are in Your hands, and I pray that I will not be impatient but learn to wait for Your best timing. Thank You, Lord, that You are a God Who hears and answers prayers. Keep me I pray in the centre of Your will in every area of my life.
Father, my dear desire is to have a precious life-partner, but in everything including this, I pray Thy will be done. In Jesus' name,
Heavenly Father, I bring before you this increasingly difficult relationship that I am in and pray that by Your grace, I may be willing to learn the lessons that You would teach me through this problematic time. Lord, I know that relationships are not always easy, but we seem to have slid into a constant cycle of hostility and accusations. Forgive me for the part I have played in developing this bitterness and ill-feeling between us, and I pray that You would help me repent of this wrong attitude, and turn right away from my own natural, fleshly reactions and start to walk in spirit and truth. Lord, I know that I cannot do this in my own strength but only in the power of the Holy Spirit. And so Lord, I pray that I may be willing to listen to Your promptings and to submit to Your training and chastening hand on my life.
Help me each day to lay my life before You and to search my own heart, so that I may identify any seeds of my own bitterness and hostility and I pray that I may be honest in my assessment of my own faults and failings. Teach me Your way and endow me with wisdom, grace and counsel, so that the damage to our relationship may be repaired by Your grace. Help me to live my life as the person that You would have me be, and in a manner that is pleasing in Your sight.
Guard my heart and all that proceeds from my lips, and may my words be seasoned with salt and pleasing to the Father. Thank You, Lord, that You are a God Who hears and answers the prayers of Your children, and I pray that you would graciously renew a right spirit, within this relationship. In Jesus' name I pray,
Heavenly Father, thank You for the many gifts and graces You give to Your children and for the people that come into our lives who mean so much to us. Thank You for the sweet fellowship we enjoy with brothers and sisters in Christ, and Lord, how good it is to walk when members of Your body live together in love and unity.
Deepen we pray, the bonds of fellowship within the body of Christ and may our hearts be knit together in love in Christ Jesus. Forgive us for the times when our fleshly natures have broken or damaged the precious relationships we have with each other in Christ, and keep us we pray, walking in love, knowing that we are a spiritual house joined together as one in Him.
Thank You, Lord, for those special people and relationships you have placed in my life with whom I enjoy a close bond of unity. May we encourage and edify each other as we wait for the any day return of the Lord Jesus in the air to claim His church for Himself. May we all draw ever closer to each other and to You as we see the day of Your return approaching. We ask this in Jesus' name,
Acknowledge to God that good sense will make you slow to anger, and it is your glory to overlook an offense (Proverbs 19:11). Pray that God would help you not be easily offended by the words, actions, or attitudes of others.
Ask for the Lord's help in putting all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander away from you, along with all malice. Pray that He would give you a kind and tender heart that is willing to forgive in the same way you've been forgiven by God
Father God we come before you today to ask you to help us do everything with absolute honesty in our marriage. Sanctify us by your truth your word is truth (John 17:17).
Help us to never lie to one another. Help us to come clean if we mess up or make a mistake that can affect our marriage no matter how bad we may feel or embarrassed we may be. Give us the ability to be completely transparent with one another regardless of how we feel.
We thank you for the discernment to know your truth and the conviction to call on the name of Jesus. If there is anything that we have been untruthful about in the past, please help us to share it with one another and give us the wisdom to work through it. We thank you for helping us to be honest as we choose to submit to your spirit.In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
