Prayer For Restoration Of Marriage

To the extent that both spouses are willing to seek God’s help in mending their marriage, reconciliation is possible. Here are three encouraging prayers that can aid in the restoration of your marriage, whether the trouble stems from a failure to communicate, from emotional issues like unforgiveness and pride, or from a standstill caused by an inability to resolve differences.

There will always be times when even the best marriage has problems and issues, no matter how much we try to avoid them. Instead of avoiding or ignoring these issues, we should seek God, who has the power to put things right.

Since marriage is His creation, it stands to reason that He should be consulted when difficulties arise within the institution. The only one who can tell you what’s wrong with your marriage and how to make it work again is God.

It is impossible to overstate the efficacy of prayer. A broken relationship, no matter how severe, can be restored through prayer. It has the power to mend even the most strained of marriages.

Any broken connection can be restored through prayer, as can a crooked heart be set straight, an argument settled, and wounds healed. Reconciling in marriage is possible.

You need only pray to God for help. You must have faith in God’s ability to hear your prayers and cast out any doubts you may have (Mark 11:23).

Whether you are experiencing a troubled relationship, a spouse who has left the marital home, infidelity, confusion, a breakdown in communication, or a marriage on the verge of divorce, you are not alone.

God is willing and able to restore your relationship. When God is involved, there is no such thing as an impossibility. In this article, you’ll read about midnight prayer for marriage restoration, and scripture prayer for marriage restoration.

Prayer For Restoration Of Marriage

Dear God, first of all we want to pray that You would bless our marriage. We pray that You would bring healing to our hearts and minds. We pray that You would draw us closer together by removing the things that are pushing us apart. We pray that You would help us communicate with one another with love, kindness and patience. I pray for forgiveness for anything I’ve done to hurt my spouse, and ask for the forgiveness of my spouse for anything I’ve done to hurt them. Heal our marriage from any wounds or scars caused by words said out of anger, frustration or irritation…

Dear God, first of all we want to pray that You would bless our marriage.

Dear God, first of all we want to pray that You would bless our marriage. We are asking for Your blessing on our marriage and ask that You help us grow closer together. We need Your wisdom in how to communicate with one another so that we can be more understanding and loving toward each other. We also acknowledge there has been sin in the past that needs to be dealt with, and we ask for forgiveness in this area as well.

We pray that You would bring healing to our hearts and minds.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We pray that You would bring healing to our hearts and minds. We are hurting. Please heal us from the pain of this infidelity. Help us to understand that we are not alone in this struggle, but that You are with us and will help us through these difficult times. We pray for forgiveness, grace and mercy in our lives as we seek Your face in prayer during this difficult time.

We pray that You would draw us closer together by removing the things that are pushing us apart.

We pray that You would draw us closer together by removing the things that are pushing us apart.

We know that there are obstacles and sin in our lives, and we want to be free from them. We want our marriages to be restored to their original purpose: a bond of love and respect between man and wife.

We pray that You would help us communicate with one another with love, kindness and patience.

We pray that You would help us communicate with one another with love, kindness and patience.

Help us to understand each other’s point of view and why we each act the way we do. Help us to see things from each other’s perspective, even when it seems hard for us to do so. Help us know how to respond appropriately when our spouse does something hurtful or unkind and then help them respond appropriately when we do something hurtful or unkind so that we can move forward in our relationship together.

We pray that You would remove any areas of sin in our lives that are causing division in our marriage.

You are the only one who can restore our marriage. In your infinite wisdom, please show us what we need to change in order for our marriage to be restored. Please help us become better people so that we can have a healthier relationship with one another and with You.

We pray that You would remove any areas of sin in our lives that are causing division in our marriage. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, amen!

I pray for forgiveness for anything I’ve done to hurt my spouse, and ask for the forgiveness of my spouse for anything I’ve done to hurt them.

If you have hurt your spouse in any way, ask for the forgiveness of your spouse. If you have been hurt by your spouse, ask that they forgive you.

If there are things you want to continue doing to or with them, it’s okay to tell them that as long as what is being requested is within the boundaries of marriage and doesn’t violate the marital commitment (e.g., cheating on each other). It’s also okay if someone wants something different than what they’re currently doing or receiving—the important thing is making sure that both parties are satisfied with their lives together overall.

Heal our marriage from any wounds or scars caused by words said out of anger, frustration or irritation.

  • Forgiveness.
  • Healing.
  • Restoration.
  • Peace between you and your spouse.
  • Unity in Christ through marriage, despite any differences that may exist between you

Help us forgive each other when we have been hurt by each other’s actions or words.

Forgiveness is a choice to let go of anger and move on, not forget the hurt. Forgiveness is not condoning the behaviour or ignoring it. If we do not forgive each other, then we will be unable to truly love each other as we should. We may think that forgiveness means forgetting what happened, but this does not have to be true for us. Instead, forgiveness means letting go of bitterness and resentment towards our spouse so we can both start fresh again with a clean slate in our relationship with them.

Help us forgive ourselves when we have disappointed you or ourselves.

Dear Lord, please help us to forgive ourselves when we have disappointed you or ourselves. We know that our sin separates us from you and others, but we also realize that the power of Christ’s blood can wash away all sins. We need your forgiveness to change our lives for the better.

We cannot change the past, but we can learn from it and move on in life together with each other as one family again.

Holy Spirit, please draw my spouse near to you right now, as well as myself.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for all that you have given me. I know that without You, I am nothing but a powerless sinner. Thank You for being my Savior and Redeemer.

Please draw my spouse near to You right now, as well as myself. Draw us before Your throne of grace and mercy so we may find healing in our relationship with one another, through the power of Your Holy Spirit working within us both. May our hearts be softened toward each other by Your love and grace, so that we can experience true forgiveness in Christ Jesus–not only from each other’s sins but also from any sin committed against us by others who have hurt or offended us along life’s journey (as well as those specific sins which still need healing).

Forgive us for worshiping anything other than You in this relationship and remove the idols that have taken Your place in our life together.

Forgive us for worshiping anything other than You in this relationship and remove the idols that have taken Your place in our life together.

Idols can be anything that we put ahead of God—our jobs, hobbies, even other people. They can also be things that we put ahead of our spouse or children or friends. When an idol is placed above God, it becomes a barrier between you and the one you love. You are called to take down this barrier by surrendering your will to His will so that nothing gets in the way of His love being expressed through your marriage.

Remind us often of how much we mean to each other and how much joy there is in our relationship when it is focused on You instead of ourselves or other idols. Amen!

As we go through the day, we are often distracted by our own thoughts and feelings. We get so wrapped up in what we are doing that we forget to focus on God. This can have a negative effect on our relationships with others because it leads us to be self-centered instead of putting other people first.

So remember: when you’re feeling angry or frustrated, do not take out your anger on your partner! Instead, take some time alone with God and ask Him for forgiveness—and then apologize to your spouse as soon as possible. Then try again tomorrow by making sure that at least 50% of each conversation centers around them rather than yourself!

Prayer is one way that we can connect with God; another way is through His Word (the Bible). Reading it will help us understand His desires for us as individuals and couples alike so that hopefully next time someone asks about “that” person in their life who’s been causing problems lately; there won’t be any hesitation when answering “I don’t know.”

To You, who are far above all powers and dominion, we bring our great need for the healing of our marriage. We put our faith in Your strength to slay this lion and reclaim our lost love. Amen.

Supplication for Protection From Evil Influence

Please grant us the courtesy of speaking to one another with respect, seeking consensus before acting, and doing what it takes to make our partner happy. Amen.

Help us overcome our defensiveness and hurt feelings so that we can communicate openly and humbly. Explain what must be done to get things back to normal. Amen.

Superior to Former Methods Lord, my fortitude, I pray that you will breathe new life into this stale union. From a human point of view, this may appear impossible, but with You, anything is possible. For Your own sake and the sake of Your honor and glory, I beg You to reverse the current course of events. Bring back what was lost, and our relationship will be better than ever.

While we are dusting ourselves off and starting anew as a married couple, may You be praised and glorified. Amen.

Help us, Holy Spirit, to love as Christ loved, by giving our lives for others. Change our hard, unyielding hearts into soft, receptive ones. Bring Your powerful might to bear on us so that we are not destroyed but rather renewed. Amen.

Recognizing Problematic Conduct Prayer
Almighty God, Restoring this marriage would be a beautiful metaphor for the bond between You and Your church, and I pray every day that it may be so. I have to admit that rather than looking at my own shortcomings, I have been placing the blame for our marital woes squarely on the shoulders of my better half. Please, Holy Spirit, shed light on the ways in which my actions and attitudes have contributed to the breakdown of my marriage. Please help me to quickly acknowledge my faults to You and my spouse so that I may receive their forgiveness and be restored in my relationship with them. Amen.

Christ’s Mind, Please, Prayer

We pray for harmony of mind and heart, and that we may be one in Your Holy Spirit and mission. May we be humble enough to put the needs of others ahead of our own and let that perspective guide our actions. Please assist us in looking out for our loved one’s best interests as well as our own. Bring peace and healing to our shattered relationship. Amen.

Conversing as Led by the Spirit: A Prayer
Holy One, I recognize that the devil, not Your Spirit, has been in charge of my recent conversations with my better half. Please save me from this destructive mood, I beg You. Dear Lord, we beg You to perform a miracle and save our marriage. Help us all to humble ourselves before You so that our conversations are guided by the Holy Spirit and serve to heal, rather than inflict more harm. I ask that the vastness of Your power be used to repair our marriage in every way that we’ve let the devil in. Amen.

Confronting the Opponent Prayer

As the leader of our household, we ask that you instruct, direct, and soften us so that we can more easily follow Your lead. Amen.

Prayer: “Father, the Battle is the Lord’s, and I Will Rest” Despite your role as the savior of my marriage, I am exhausted by my constant fight to keep my life together. The Lord has the upper hand in this, so I’m going to let Him have it. Thanks to Your divine protection, I will recover the lost ground. I pray that the negativity, nagging, and sarcasm that have wounded our love may be vanquished by Your mighty hand. Help us, Holy Spirit, to instead cultivate a spirit of affirmation and encouragement. Help us remember that what we say has the potential to either destroy or create. Amen.

Dismantling fortresses Prayer
Dear Lord and King, I implore You to destroy the fortifications of human logic. I’ve tried to justify and explain away my bad temper toward my wife or husband. Please pardon my transgressions and help me to forgive my own wounds. Please give us a fresh start in our marriage so that we can begin acting in ways that truly reflect our love for one another. Please assist us in overcoming our negative assumptions and limiting beliefs. Amen.

Amen.

Give us the ability to understand the other person’s perspective and validate their emotions. Please remind us to always sacrifice for the needs of others. Amen.

Scripture Prayer For Marriage Restoration

Marriage is a wonderful institution, with so many benefits. But sometimes things don’t work out as we would like them to. This is where prayer comes in handy. It’s God’s job to deliver us from the troubles that come our way, and through prayer, He always will! If you’re working on restoring your marriage or thinking about doing so, these verses might give you some encouragement:

Psalms 85

  • Psalms 85:8-13, “ 8 The LORD will bless you from Zion; he will bless you on your land. He will bless the fruit of your womb, the crops of your land, and your herds and flocks. 9 Your country will be sacred to them as long as they live. You are a people blessed by the LORD, who saved their ancestors and themselves when they came out of Egypt”
  • Psalms 95:7-11: “ 7 Come let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the LORD our Maker. 8 For he is our God and we are his people, the sheep with which he feeds himself – his flock; in that day may we all come near him for judgment! And may all these nations serve him whom my soul has chosen for myself; this is what I asked of my God!”

Psalms 126

Psalms 126 is a wonderful psalm that speaks of the power and presence of God. The first verse says, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though its waters roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with its swelling.”

The psalmist tells us that God is our fortress where we can take shelter from any storm. He gives us peace when everything around us seems to be falling apart. What a great promise! When you feel like your marriage is falling apart or you are in danger of losing your spouse completely this verse will remind you that it doesn’t matter what your situation looks like on earth because your husband/wife will always belong to God who loves them dearly (Deuteronomy 7:6).

Psalms 127

  • The Bible says, “A good wife is a woman who can find? But one who sins against her husband and causes him to break the marriage bond?
  • What does it mean for God not to suffer the marriage bond to be broken? In other words, why would He keep us bound together when we don’t want to be?

It means that God blesses our marriage and wants us to stay together. He will not allow anyone or anything (including ourselves!) To break up our union as long as we are both willing.

Zechariah 10:1

The God of Israel is a faithful God who will restore the fortunes of his people. In this chapter, you will learn how to pray for your marriage restoration. You will also receive the biblical scriptures that will help you get back on track in your relationship with your spouse and strengthen the bond between you two.

In Zechariah 10:1-4, we read about how God will bring back the captives and heal their land. He also forgives their sins and restores their fortunes as he brings them back home again (Zechariah 10:2-4). We can apply these principles to our lives today because they were written by prophets who lived during different periods of time but all share one thing in common; they all had an encounter with God through His word or through miracles which enabled them see clearly what was going on around them at that moment in history!

James 4:8

James 4:8 says, “Come near to God and he will come near to you.” Pray for your spouse, pray for your marriage, pray for your family, pray for your children. We often underestimate the power of prayer and how it can change our lives positively or negatively depending on what we ask God in prayer.

Pray not only for yourself but also your friends and neighbors! We are a part of each other’s lives so let’s be praying together.

Jeremiah 33:3

“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3

God is faithful to his promises, so he will restore your marriage. God is the only one who can fix your marriage, so don’t trust anyone but him with this matter. God has already given you the power to pray for your marriage (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Deuteronomy 28:1-14

You must obey the LORD your God by keeping all of his commands and laws. You can’t add anything to them or subtract anything from them. Then you will live long in the land that he has given you.

1 The LORD is merciful and compassionate, always forgiving Israel’s sins and never holding a person’s sins against him.

4 If you pay attention to these laws and teachings that I give you today, if you love the LORD your God and serve him with all your heart and soul, 5 then I will send rain on your land in its season—rain enough for every seed planted by your enemies around you to grow into something useful for food. 6 Your threshing floors will be full of grain; the vats where wine is pressed will overflow with new wine.

Hosea 2:14-15

God loved Israel and was faithful to her. He promised her that he would restore their relationship and forgive them of their sins. And in this way, God is showing us his love for us.

Matthew 7:7-11

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”

  • -Matthew 7:7-11

God Can Restore Your Marriage Pray To Him

If you have been praying for your marriage, God will answer your prayers. He is the only one who can restore a broken relationship and make it whole again. If you are praying for God to help your marriage, then He will definitely answer that prayer!


In conclusion, I hope that this article has helped you to understand the importance of prayer in restoring marriages. The Bible is full of verses that can help guide you on your journey towards reconciliation with your spouse and the Lord. There is no substitute for prayer when it comes down to matters of the heart; so don’t be afraid or ashamed about asking for help from above!

God blesses us with the desire for marriage, but He doesn’t make it easy. We have to ask Him to heal our hearts and minds so we can grow in love for one another, and that takes time and patience. God has also given us many tools to help us along the way, such as forgiveness and prayer. We hope that these prayers will bring you closer together as well!
