Prayer For Wayward Spouse
Father God, I present to you this day ___________ and ask that you put the hedge of thorns, according to Hosea 2:6, around them to keep them from falling into sin. Cause them to not find the way of unfaithfulness. Cause these ungodly desires to not be fulfilled. May they return to a covenant relationship first and foremost with you, God, and secondly to the covenant relationship that You have ordained from the foundations of the earth. I pray for grace, patience and peace to guard my heart as I wait on You Lord to bring this prayer to fulfillment. I pray that You would send away all these ungodly desires. May _______ lose the desire to go that way, reveal to her/him that this way is destruction and against your will. Give him/her dreams and visions to see that the end is of no good. I pray that You will season my speech with grace so that I will know what to say and when to say it. I pray that you will cleanse my heart and root out any seed of bitterness. Give me grace to forgive. Put a guard over my mouth and show me how I can accommodate the reconciliation and restoration of this covenant relationship. If I have any responsibility in driving ______ away from you God and from this covenant relationship, please reveal it to me. Forgive me God and prepare me for their return. Guide them and me with your Holy Spirit, in Jesus Name, Amen.
But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. Be merciful to those who doubt; snatch others from the fire and save them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh. To him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.
Father, I come humbly to you and ask that you build a hedge of thorns around my husband Agustin, so that he may not find his path to sin but return home to me and his his children. Build a hedge of thorns around him so that his lover may lose interest in him and depart.
Soften his heart toward me and his children so that when he returns home he is a different husband and father. I also ask for our marriage restoration. I ask for prayers so that feelings of anger, resentment, and unforgiveness be transformed into feelings of love, grace, mercy and forgiveness.
I ask for prayer so that our marriage become stronger in the Lord so that we may be a living testimony to His glory. I ask this the the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
Great God in heaven, I know that only You can grant repentance (2 Tim 2:25) and so I am asking my spouse for their forgiveness in the hopes that our marriage might be restored again. I am so troubled God by what is happening in our relationship. I know I am responsible for making a lot of mistakes and doing things that I knew were wrong but I have asked for Your forgiveness and for their forgiveness but the silence is deafening. It grieves my heart to know that our relationship might be over. God please help them to know how much You have forgiven them and meto see Your forgiveness as infinitely greater than any human could ever extend to another. It was infinitely costly tooso please help us to be restored again as one flesh and one in unity and by the strong name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.
Father, Your Word says that You control the heart of the king and direct it in the way that pleases You (Prov 21:1) so I am asking You to revive our hearts as a couple. Please help me to know how to rekindle that ember into a fire again and once again burn in desiring one another again. I know that I have not always been the most loving and I have neglected to be thankful to my spouse for all they do and for that I repent and ask for Your and their forgiveness. I know that only You can revive the broken hearted, only You can restore the shattered lives, and only You can renew the human heart and guide it to whatever purpose You desire, so please work in my heart and in my spouse's heart so our marriage can be renewed so that we can come back together again and praise You for the all of the marvelous things You do and in Jesus' name I pray, amen.
Great God in heaven, when our relationships with our spouses are in trouble, it seems that it is too much of a burden to bear alone. I would ask You God to help me endure this time of trouble with my spouse. I can easily think of things that I did wrong and failed to do something I should have done. Please forgive me for these sins. I have confessed my faults to my spouse and asked for their forgiveness, yet they are still not receiving it. Oh God, my heart is breaking for my beloved, please bring to their mind the times and circumstances that brought us both together, how we grew to love one another, and made marvelous plans for the future, but it all seems so far away now. Please God, bring these precious memories back to them in the hopes that we can be reconciled, one with another, and for the glory of the name I pray in, Jesus Christ, amen.
Trusting in the promise that whatever we ask the Father in Jesus' name He will do, I now approach You Father with confidence in Our Lord's words and in Your infinite power and love for me and for my [husband/wife, person's name] and with the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, Blessed Archangel Michael, the guardian angels of myself and [person's name] , with all the saints and angels of heaven, and Holy in the power of His blessed Name, as ask you Father to send forth Your Spirit to convict [person's name] and to allow him/her to see any and all wrongs that he has done and how they offend Your infinite goodness.
Father I ask in sorrow, knowing that You do not intrude upon free will, but that You can give Divine Influence like you did with Hosea's wife, that You send a hedge of thorns and wall around [person's name] so that he/she cannot find the paths that lead him/her away from me and our marriage, and though he/she shall pursue his/her [i.e. lovers, lifestyle, sinful ways, etc.] , he/she will not [i.e. overtake them, practice improper lifestyles, engage in sin, etc.] ; though he/she shall seek [i.e. lovers, improper lifestyle, sin, etc.] , he/she shall not find [i.e. them, desired lifestyle, the sin that draws him, etc.] ; that no matter what path or what [i.e. lover, lifestyle, sin, etc.] he/she seeks he/she shall not find satisfaction or happiness until he/she returns to me, his/her wife/husband where he/she may then be taught by Your Holy Spirit the true meaning of marriage and sexuality and to be a good and loving wife/husband, and to know the ways of righteousness and true womanhood/manhood.
Father, I am powerless against these spiritual forces and recognize my utter dependence on You and Your power. Look with mercy upon me and upon my wife/husband. Do not look upon our sins, O Lord; rather, look at the sufferings of your Beloved Son and see the Victim who's bitter passion and death has reconciled us to You. By the victory of the cross, protect us from all evil and rebuke any evil spirits who are attacking or influencing us in any way. Send them back to Hell and place a wall of protection around this marriage. Send your Holy Angels to watch over us and protect us.
Father, all of these things I ask in the most holy name of Jesus Christ, Your Son. Thank you, Father, for hearing my prayer. I love You, I worship You, I thank You and I trust in You. Amen.
