Dear God, we come before you today to pray for our relationship. We are grateful for the love that you have given us and for the friendship that we share. Thank you for all of the joy we find in each other’s presence, and thank you for the comfort we find in sharing our burdens with one another.
We pray now for our marriage. We pray that we would grow closer to each other day by day, so that we may continue to be a blessing to one another in this life and the next. We pray for patience when things get difficult between us, and for forgiveness when we hurt each other unintentionally. We ask that you would help us see each other as more than just another person—that you would help us see each other as a partner in this journey through life, someone whose presence is as necessary to our happiness as air or water is necessary to our survival.
We pray also for peace in our hearts and minds, so that even though life may be hard sometimes, it may never be enough to drive us apart from one another or away from your loving protection over both of us.

Prayer for Helping the Homeless
God, our Sustainer, we come to You this morning asking for Your wisdom on how we spend our money today. Open our eyes so we can see what truly needs to be spent and what we can save for our future and for helping others. Open our eyes and our hearts so that someone who is truly needy does not go unnoticed by us. Help us to see them as we pass them on the street. Put in our mouths the words to say to them to spread Your love. Give us the courage to look directly into their eyes and acknowledge their humanity. Help us to let them know that we do care, and we do see them. All the money in the world means nothing when we leave this earth, God. Your love is all the riches we could ask for. Help us to use our money to further Your love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Prayer for Fertility
O Lord, our Healer, we come before You this morning to pray for fertility. As we start today, we pray that we have the seed and the healthy womb to bear children and carry on our family line. We live our life for You, Lord, and we hope to bring a child into this world to glorify Your name. We are faithful believers, Lord, and we know that You have a plan for our lives. If it be Your will, Lord, please give us Your gift of children. In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.
Prayer for Our Struggles
Jesus, the Great Physician, this morning we pray to you about our struggles with each other. We knew there would be roads that were unlike the roads we have traveled before. We knew that decisions and choices would have to be made in life, dear Jesus, but these trying times are weighing so heavily upon us. We are tired of the problems and struggles. We are worn down by the big issues. Please, Jesus, continue to guide us, relieve our tension, and calm our thoughts. Help us get through this, Jesus. Amen.
Prayer for Good Health
O God, our Strength, this morning we come together as a couple to ask that You watch over us during the day and protect our health. Just as You promised the outcasts of Jerusalem that You would restore them to health, please, Lord God, keep our immune systems strong and give us the willpower to make healthy decisions about what we eat and drink. We will live out this day in Your holy name, Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Prayer for Our Work Day
Righteous Savior, we praise You this morning that we both are employed. Please be with us in our decision-making while we are at work so that we perform well. Be present in our thoughts so that our words are kind. Fill us with energy to accomplish our tasks, and the focus to do them correctly. Let us feel the Holy Spirit indwelt within our hearts so that we radiate that joy to everyone we see. Bring us home safely to each other. Amen.
Prayer for the Earth
God of the Universe, in the beginning, You created the heavens and the earth. You said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. You blessed us with this beautiful morning. You bless us with a new day every day. Whether it’s raining or sunny, we praise Your holy name and thank You. You bless the crops with raindrops. You scorch the earth with fire and allow for the rebirth of plant life. You give us the wind and water. Thank You for Your gifts to us. Send Your Holy Spirit to live within our souls. Fill us with Your love and have Your way in us today. You are our all-powerful Father. You are the Name above all Names. You are the almighty and everlasting God. We are so small and are humbled by Your greatness. Amen.
Prayer for God’s Light Within Us
Light in the Darkness, as the sun comes up this morning, channel its radiance into our souls and fill us up with You. Calm our racing minds and crush our self-doubt. Inspire us with the confidence we need for the day ahead. Instill kindness in us, so that we may be kind to each other and others even though we face the stresses of the day. We rejoice, dear Lord, that we can have complete confidence in You. Amen.
Prayer for Our Friendship
Name above All Names, hear our prayer this morning as we come before You as a couple in love. Hear our plea as we reach out to You, needing Your divine help to strengthen our relationship. Life is so busy and there is so much to do. We try to work as a team to get everything done, but we end up going in different directions and barely finding time to come back together. Come into our hearts, Lord Jesus, and plant the spirit of friendship for each other within us. Help us to reach out to each other during our busy days to check on each other. Help us to find small ways to show each other that we care. Keep each other ever-present in our minds and show each other friendship which is reflective of our love. Amen.
