Prayer For Struggling Marriage

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for blessing me with a partner for life. I want to glorify you in honoring my marriage vows and being the best spouse I can be.

I pray for an abundance of the fruits of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) within myself and my spouse.

Peace over our home and our spirits.
Love that overcomes all.
Joy that is ever present, especially during trials.
Faithfulness to you God and one another.
Patience in your perfect timing and will for my marriage and also towards my spouse.
Kindness at all times towards my spouse.
Goodness, that is honorable and pure.
Gentleness to handle a hurting heart and bruised spirit.
Self-control to resist the temptation to sin against you and my marriage.
Father, please grow my marriage and place in each of us a burning passion to serve you. Help my spouse to be the kind of leader in our family that he needs to be. May he lead by example in his own spiritual walk.

I pray that you would heal conflict in my marriage and place in each of us a forgiving heart. Help each of us to love, honor, and cherish each other always.

Your Word describes love as patient, kind, non-envious, not boastful, not self-seeking, not evil, protective, trusts, hopes, perseveres and never-failing (1 Corinthians 13:4-8.)

I pray Lord that you would saturate both of our hearts with this kind of love.

Lord, thank you for the purity of marriage. Help us to be sober-minded and on alert against the evil that seeks to devour.

Protect us and our marriage against a moment of weakness.

Place in us an eagerness to serve each other with love, humility, and patience. Make us both of the same mind and love. Grant us freedom from selfishness.

Father, no man can separate what you have joined together. I pray this in Jesus' name, Amen.

Lord, I feel like my partner and I have had a difficult time clearly communicating with one another lately. We are both lacking in our compassion and understanding towards each other. I pray we would be better than this, and that You will open our hearts to You. Holy Spirit, please help us be better communicators with each other. I pray that we would live with understanding for what the other person is going through, and that we are thoughtful in our words and actions. Amen.

Heavenly Father, I come before you and lay this troubled relationship in your hands. I ask that you would revive this couple, and draw them toward happiness shared together. I ask that you would renew their love and passion for one another, and that you would untangle the conflicts and strife that has damaged and angered them towards one another. Please bring understanding and tenderness of heart to both of them. May they both embrace the miracle that you desire to do for them, and within their spirits. Amen.

Precious Savior, please pray that my heart's desire be granted, and the return of the love of my life would come to fruition. I pray that my spouse/partner may have healed his/her wounds from the past, and forgiven all that has gone wrong between the two of us. Lord, help my lost love be able to follow his/her heart to their desire and love me for me. I ask that we be forever reconciled as one, from this day forward.

My heart cries out to You, my Maker of Heaven and of Earth! Please bring healing to our broken hearts, bring restoration to our relationship, ignite lost passion, and inspire forgotten intimacy. Please transform the two of us from the inside out, and lead us in Your way. We trust in you, Precious Jesus. Always. Amen.

Please pray for the restoration of my marriage. My wife of 20 yrs moved out 4 months ago. We have three beautiful children together. She is seeking a separation. I have been praying and asking God to work in our hearts. I ask God to remind my wife of all the good times and happy memories we made together. Please pray for us.


Lord, I come before you today with a heavy heart; my marriage is in grave trouble, and I need Your help and closeness. Please make changes in my spouse's heart. Make us compatible again, and bring us closer together as we were before. Fill us with Your love and give us the strength to love one another, care for one another, and fulfill your life long wishes for us. Show us the harm caused by careless, uncalled for words, and the pain caused by emotional distance. Heal the division between the two of us. Make us one again. In Your precious name I pray, amen.

Jesus, I lift up my heart to you. It is cold and hard and bitter roots have formed. You know why and I don't think you blame me. I truly think you understand. But I don't want to be known as an angry or sad or pathetic woman. Regardless of my circumstances, I want to be a woman who is close to you, and receives her value from you, who knows she is loved, and who has the strength to persevere and live fully no matter what. So I give you my heart. Show me what's inside. Cleanse me deep down. I give you all of the hidden places, all of the things I am clinging to so tightly even my pain and entitlement and resentment and anger and I ask that you will forgive me, change me, heal me, and strengthen me. Amen.
