Prayer for Marriage Restoration

Father, I PRAISE You and thank You that You are God of reconciliation. In the words of Ann Voskamp, through Your Son Jesus, You “loved us all the way to death and back to life again”! We have that same hope of redemption, that same story of Jesus saving us and giving us hope of resurrection in our marriage. Father, I thank You that You can bring dead marriages back to life! Father, I pray You will grow our faith to believe and hope for the resurrection of love in marriages that have grown bitter and where hearts of flesh have hardened to stony tombs where love once lived. I pray that by Your Mighty outstretched arm that You will save us and roll back the stones so hearts can beat again for You and yearn for their spouses.
Lord, bring the dead marriages back to life by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Breathe life into the marriages that resemble bony frames lacking health and vigor– Skeletons that await Your command to rise up and stand (Ezekiel 37). As we breathe life by speaking life, which is Your Word, give us faith to see those dead things become full of life and nourishment in our relationships with our spouses. Lord, restore the years and help those who have been waiting for restoration to understand that Your timing is not delayed*.
Thank You Lord for restoring my marriage, and I put my hope in You for the fulfillment of promises and good things that have been prophesied over me and my husband. Give other couples faith to do the same concerning theirs. Lord, help us do our parts in keeping our walks right with You Lord. For those believing in You for the restoration of their marriages, give them joy and peace that surpasses understanding as they seek You instead of trying to endure on their own. There are many who feel hopeless and are weary. Bind up their wounds and shelter them under Your wings. Hide us from the enemy, and replenish those who have lost their strength or will to press forward in their stand. Remove every adulterous relationship, addiction, selfish motive, any issues or obstructions that stand in the way of husbands loving their wives and wives respecting their husbands, according to Your will. Refresh us and help us bless others with a word of encouragement so we are refreshed yet again. I give You thanks for what You have done, are doing, and will do in our marriages!!!! All to Your glory!!!! In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
*Habbakuk 2:3 ” For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak and not lie. Though it tarry, wait for it, because it will surely come; it will not tarry.”
