Lord Jesus, we need your assistance. As our marriage breaks down, we keep running into the word “divorce.” Both of us have been listening to other “voices” that advise us to give up since the struggle is not worthwhile.

We don’t want to end our bond or renege on our agreements to stay together until death do us part. And we are aware that You also desire to heal. But we are at a loss on what to do. Show us how to begin closing the holes and exits we have made out of self-interest, passivity, or arrogance.

Show us what we are unable to see for ourselves. The Truth, the Way, and the Life are all in you. We need assistance in order to return to our initial affection for one another because we have abandoned it. Restore in us a willing attitude, and aid us in resisting the need to criticize or speak in a defensive manner.

You are a wise Counselor, and You are aware of everything we require. We put all of our faith and trust in you. Please point us in the direction of people who can actually assist if outside Christian guidance is required to bring us back and “start over.” Lord, you are the solution. We do not want to get divorced. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Lord Jesus, it seems like nothing in our marriage is going well. We have been arguing a lot lately. Or we leave in quiet or with fury, unable to address the situation.  Teach us how to communicate so that we can once more interact civilly and kindly.

Again, Lord, demonstrate to us what it means to honor and submit to one another in the spirit of a man and a woman in love with You. All the fundamentals have been forgotten. And we have a feeling that if we don’t address even little issues now, we will eventually run into a much bigger obstacle.

Perhaps we have lost sight of what true love is like. Or perhaps we didn’t truly know. However, Lord, our union is in peril. We require you. No matter how challenging the situation, we want to confront it with You by our side.

You have warned us that we will face difficulties while living on earth, but that You are the great Overcome. We can patch up the tears and correct the mistakes with You, Lord. Together, we can create a happy marriage. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen

Lord God, our marriage cannot continue to stagnate. However, we are unable to advance and will not reverse the course. We feel as though our relationship is broken, like a vintage phonograph needle that is stuck in the same groove.

We fight against our enemy, who seeks to dissolve this union, in the name and through the blood of Jesus Christ. Lord, we pray You to chastise the enemy who is attempting to destroy the lovely covenant that was started in us as a marriage.

We turn to You in times of adversity as our defender, protector, refuge, and haven. We declare in the name of Jesus that You live in us and are bigger than the one who prowls around looking for victims to destroy.

We are willing to put forth joint effort since we are aware that it is Your will that we pray and hope for the restoration of our marriage. We stake our lives on Your promise, Lord, that You will guide our footsteps when we put our complete confidence in You.

With the help of Your Holy Spirit, You have united our two spirits and joined them together. We don’t allow our opponent to sow discord to what God has already united together.

We will battle for our marriage with You as our Supreme Warrior and Commander because Your Word contains the truth and because it is the third thread in our relationship with one another.

We will do this while wearing the spiritual armor You have given us. We ask in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.

It is getting harder and harder for us to handle the difficulties because we are both emotionally and psychologically spent. But Lord, we are aware that You have dominion over our union. Everything is possible in You.
