Prayer For Restoration

Heavenly Father, you who makes all things new and brings beauty from our ashes: bind up my broken heart, proclaim freedom over my life, and release me from my darkness. For you are the One who promises to comfort those who mourn and bestow upon me a crown of beauty, oil of joy, and a garment of praise. You will turn my despair into rejoicing. For I will put my trust in you and believe in your promises of hope. My suffering will become a testimony to your greatness and faithfulness. Amen.

Loving Father, I come to You knowing that You are a God Who hears and answers prayers. I ask Lord, that You would visit each member of our family, which has become so disunited and critical of each other, and restore the joy of Your salvation in all of our hearts.

Lord, we know that times are difficult and that stress often play a part in foolish disputes and disunity in a family or home - but in times of trouble we should remain closely united as a family unit, as well as keeping close to You.

Thank You, Lord, for every member of my family. Minister, I pray, to each one of us in a unique and wonderful way. Touch each of our hearts and help us to stop our foolish squabbling and become united together in thought and deed.

May Your Spirit of peace and hope fill each of our hearts as we recognise that our hope is in You alone. I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ,


Forgive me Father God, I have realised that I have become so engrossed in my own affairs and interests that I have wandered far away from You and my life seems to be pretty meaningless.

Thank You, Lord, that in Your grace You have sustained me thus far, but I know Father that I need to get my life back on a spiritual level. I do thank and praise You that in Your grace You have got my attention and made me realise my need to return back into a right relationship with You.

Thank You for sustaining me even when I had wandered far from You, and thank You that Your steadfast love never ceases and that Your tender mercies are new every morning. You are a great and faithful God. Help me I pray, to get a proper perspective on life and I ask that You would restore the joy of my salvation. Help me to keep my eyes looking to Jesus my feet firmly planted on the road of righteousness and peace. This I ask in Jesus' name,


Dear Heavenly Father, my marriage is falling apart and I feel helpless and hopeless and I don't know what to do. Lord, I feel powerless and just ask You to please restore my marriage. Bring us back into a loving relationship with each other and with You.

Lord, I confess that I have fallen so far short of how I should have behaved and do not deserve a second chance, but I ask Lord that in Your grace You would restore again the joy we had at the beginning and help us both to move forward in our marriage and help us to live in a way that is pleasing to You.

Heal the wounds we have both received from each other and revive and restore us so that we may move forward in our lives and life together. Lord, You have promised to heal the broken-hearted and I pray that in a wonderful way You would restore my marriage. In Jesus' name I pray,


Heavenly Father, I feel I have wasted so many years of my life pursuing wrong things and getting involved with worldly activities, fleshly pursuits and the various temporary things of life, while neglecting the important spiritual issues, that are eternal and lasting.

I ask for Your forgiveness and pray that in Your grace You would restore to me the years that the locusts have eaten, the years that I have foolishly wasted.

Lord, I want to be a good and faithful servant when I stand before Your throne, and I know that most if not all of the good works I have done are likely to be burned up, knowing that I have been striving in the flesh instead of resting in You and letting Your Holy Spirit live and work through me. Restore to me the heavenly joy and inner peace that has been evading me. Help me to focus on the eternal rather than the temporal and from this day forward, may I start to live my life in a way that you would have me live. In Jesus' name I pray,


Father, I repent of the years that I have wantonly wasted. I desire to turn away from my misspent years and return to You with all my heart, and get back into a right relationship to You.

Lord, I know that I do not deserve to have this prayer answered, but I ask for the sake of Jesus Christ, Who died to pay the price for my sins that You would look down on me with pity and mercy and that You would forgive me of my sins and give me back those years I have lost, when I was walking in unbelief and wanton ignorance of Your love and grace towards me.

I know that I do not deserve Your kindness, but You are a good and gracious God, long-suffering and of great kindness. I pray that You would restore those lost years and ask that You would enable me to start to live a life that is honouring to You. I ask this in the name of Jesus,


Heavenly Father, thank You that You care for all of Your creation and all of Your children, but Lord, there are so many areas in our home and family life that are gong wrong that it seems that our whole family is about to implode.

Father, I know that we have all made mistakes. I know that have made mistakes and ask Your forgiveness. We have all made some foolish choices, but Father I know that You are in the business of restoring those that are hurting and mending those that are broken, and I pray that You would restore our broken family at this time.

Lord, I come to You for guidance and help to restore our family's relationships. I pray that we would renew our love for each other and may the respect that we used to show to one another return. Restore the family unity we once enjoyed and may we all look to You to lead and guide us as we move forward in our relationship with each other and with You. I ask this in Jesus' name,


Dear Lord,

We have seen the damage firsthand that storms can cause in our lives. We know the destruction, aching, and devastation that they cause. If we are being honest, at times it can seem impossible that anything beautiful or good can come from such sorrows. We know within our hearts that this isn't the end of the story, that You have something far greater to come.

Father, we ask today for Your hand in our lives. We pray for the restoration of our lives by Your process. That process may not look like what we would think or plan, but we know that because You see all that is, was, and is to come...that ultimately, You will do what is most compassionate and best. Father, today we come before Your Holy throne to ask for Your restoration in our lives. We submit ourselves to Your ever-loving Will and kindness throughout.

In Jesus' name,
