Prayers For Marriage Restoration – Women
Effective prayers for marriage restoration are not possible without first KNOWING that God wants us to stand for the restoration of our marriages. And Jesus clearly stated God’s plan for marriage in Matthew 19:4-6, which says:
And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning “made them male and female,’ and said, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
Then Malachi 2:13-16 (AMP) tells us just as clearly what the Lord thinks of divorce and separation because it says:
And this you do with double guilt; you cover the altar of the Lord with tears [shed by your unoffending wives, divorced by you that you might take heathen wives], and with [your own] weeping and crying out because the Lord does not regard your offering any more or accept it with favor at your hand. Yet you ask, Why does He reject it? Because the Lord was witness [to the covenant made at your marriage] between you and the wife of your youth, against whom you have dealt treacherously and to whom you were faithless. Yet she is your companion and the wife of your covenant [made by your marriage vows]. And did not God make [you and your wife] one [flesh]? Did not One make you and preserve your spirit alive? And why [did God make you two] one? Because He sought a godly offspring [from your union]. Therefore take heed to yourselves, and let no one deal treacherously and be faithless to the wife of his youth. For the Lord, the God of Israel, says: I hate divorce and marital separation and him who covers his garment [his wife] with violence. Therefore keep a watch upon your spirit [that it may be controlled by My Spirit], that you deal not treacherously and faithlessly [with your marriage mate].
It’s hard to see how anyone can read these passages of Scripture and believe God would EVER take divorce and separation lightly or want anything other than the restoration of our marriages. Fortunately, once we understand that, we can confidently rely on God’s promise in Isaiah 55:10-11, which says As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. So use the following marriage restoration prayers to speak the Word of God and life to the restoration of your marriage and release His awesome power as He works to restore your marriage.
