Our Marriage Restoration Prayer

Dear Lord, we pray for Your very special blessings in the hearts and lives of every visitor to this site because we know it’s a broken heart, a troubled spirit or a longing for comfort and answers so desperately needed in a time of marital despair that most likely brought them here. Your Word tells us that from the very beginning, You created marriage as a one flesh covenant relationship; that what You joined together, no man can separate or put asunder and that You hate divorce. It also assures us that You will heal the brokenhearted and bind up their wounds, that You will comfort all who mourn, and that You will bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. So we thank You that instead of shame or disgrace, they will rejoice in their inheritance, that they will inherit a double portion in their lives and that everlasting joy will be theirs as You restore the marriages Satan came to destroy. May they learn to approach Your throne of grace with confidence and receive Your mercy and grace to help them in their time of need.

We’re thankful that all things are possible with You, Lord Jesus, and that You alone give us peace that transcends all understanding. And we thank You for Your assurance that no wisdom, no insight and no plan can succeed against You, that the gates of hell will not prevail against us and that NO weapon formed against our marriages will prosper because we are Your servants. Since Your Word also assures us that the hearts of our beloved spouses are in Your hand, and that You will direct their hearts like a watercourse wherever You please, we know they can’t plan or understand their own way and that it is You who will determine and direct their steps. Your Word also teaches us that unfailing love is what every man desires, so teach us how to express our faith with love.

Lord, we also ask You to work in us to will and act according to Your good purpose. We believe You and are Your disciples and want to understand and hold to Your teachings so we will know the truth which You said will set us free. Thank You for Your Word, which is a lamp to our feet and a light for our path. You are our refuge and our shield, so we put our hope in Your Word.

Since faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen, help us to live by faith and not shrink back because we know it’s impossible to please You without faith. Your Word also teaches us that whatever we ask in prayer, and believe, we will receive and that we are to walk by faith and not by sight; You even said that according to our faith it will be done to us. So, Lord Jesus, please give us the faith and patience necessary to inherit all that You have promised.

Never let us forget that we don’t live by the standards of this world. We live in the world, but we don’t wage war as the world does. And we thank You that the weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world and that they have divine power to demolish strongholds and are mighty to demolish arguments and every pretension setting themselves up against the knowledge of You, our God, and the covenant of our marriages. So teach us to take every thought captive and make them obedient to Christ, which we know is the Word.

Always remind us that we need not be afraid because You are with us. And we need not be dismayed because You are our God. You will strengthen us. You will help us. You will uphold us and our marriages with Your righteous right hand. Thank You for Your assurance that all those who are incensed against us and the sanctity of our marriages are as nothing; that those who contend with us and war with us are as nothing, as a nonexistent thing, because You, the Lord our God, will hold our right hand, saying to us “Fear not, I will help you.”

Father, teach us to always rest in the confidence we have in You because Your Word tells us that it will be richly rewarded. And give us the strength and grace to persevere so that when we have done Your will, we will receive what You have promised. And help us keep Your commandments and do those things that are pleasing in Your sight so we can receive from You whatever we ask; including the restoration of our marriages.

Bless us with faith that enables us to speak to our mountains and make them move, and confidence assuring us that nothing is impossible because we can do all things through Christ Who strengthens us. We know that with You, nothing is impossible, including living our lives full of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control; even during times of trouble, which Your Word tells us You will turn into a gateway of hope. We thank You that Your Spirit intercedes for us, Your saints, in accordance with Your will, and that You cause all things to work together for good to those who love You, and who are called according to Your purpose. And we thank You that Your thoughts and plans for us are for our welfare and peace and not for evil, and to give us hope in our final outcome. And thank You, Lord, that when we are still, we will know that You are God and that You will be exalted in all the earth.

Thank You for the comfort and assurance we have in Your Word that to man belong the plans of the heart; but from You comes the reply of the tongue, and that we can confidently rely on Your awesome promise that the Word that goes out from Your mouth will not return to You empty and that it will accomplish what You desire and the purpose for which you sent it! So thank You for assuring us by Your Word that You will uphold the covenant made when You were a witness to our marriage vows and that you consider it treachery whenever husbands or wives are faithless and dishonor their marriage vows through divorce and remarriage.

We ask and give thanks for all this in the most precious and powerful name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
