Prayers for Marriage Restoration: 27 Powerful

Prayers for Marriage Restoration: 27 Powerful

Prayers for Marriage Restoration will help you to restore your broken marriage.

When a marriage deteriorates, a couple can believe they can do nothing to restore it to its former glory.

However, God promises to restore what we have lost in Joel 2:25. He can restore an ailing marriage and make it strong.

Rebecca Barlow Jordan says, “Marriage restoration is possible when a husband and wife are willing to work together with God on their relationship.”

Each spouse needs to commit to the process of restoration and be willing to allow the Holy Spirit to work in them.

Eston Swaby notes that it may be tempting to make timelines when changes should be made, but you can’t put a time frame on when a marriage is going to be “okay.”

Prayer will fill you with the peace you need as you wait on God to restore your marriage.

Every married person knows that the proverbial thorns in the bed of roses eventually show up even in the most blissful of marriages.

It’s not a question of if it happens but rather a question of when it happens.

So if your marital bliss gets rudely interrupted by some turbulent waters, it is not time to abandon ship.

Instead, it is time to stand firm in faith and engage the gear of prayer for the fervent prayer of the righteous will avail much.

Here are 27 Powerful Prayers for Marriage Restoration.


1. Restoration of First Love.

Lord, forgive my spouse and me for allowing our love to wax cold. And help us to revive the stones of our first and genuine love.

Let the passion and desire that drew us to one another be revived in our hearts again.

Let our hearts burn within us again. I realize that a lot has transpired over the years but I also realize that your grace is sufficient and your strength is made perfect in weakness.

May you perfect our love in this moment of weakness, Amen.

2. Restoration of Romance.

Father in heaven, help my spouse and me to model our marriage on the pattern of Ephesians 5.

You command the husband to love the wife just as Christ loved the church and you also command the wife to submit to the husband.

I must confess that this often seems like a tall order but I also recognize that you wouldn’t tell us to do something that you knew was impossible.

I humbly ask for your help in our marriage that as we seek the model of the Bible in our marriage, our romance will be rekindled and we will not desire any form of satisfaction outside our union.

Thank you, Lord Jesus. Amen.

3. Restoration of Peace.

Dear Lord Jesus, I pray for the peace that surpasses human understanding in our marriage.

The world is turbulent enough and home should be a place where we can count on getting peace.

After dealing with the issues that we deal with on a daily basis, my spouse, the kids,

and I deserve to come home to a peaceful environment where we can rejuvenate and be ready to tackle the challenges of the next day.

Home shouldn’t be a place of battle, pain, and anguish where we don’t long for anymore.

Let your peace overshadow our marriage so much that home will be the oasis of hope again.

Thank you in advance for your help, Amen.

4. Breaking the Bondage of Infidelity.

Dear Lord, I ask for forgiveness for allowing infidelity to almost destroy our marriage.

Even though it looks like there is no coming back from this, I ask you for mercy and for a second chance to make things right.

Open my eyes to see where I may have faltered and done the same for my spouse as well.

And I take authority against the spirit of fornication and infidelity that is working overtime to ruin my marriage.

I rebuke that spirit in the mighty name of Jesus.

I declare that my spouse and I are totally free from the spirit of unfaithfulness and we shall always be committed to one another.

In the mighty name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.

5. Breaking the Bondage of Divorce.

Lord, you have said in your word that you hate divorce.

You made it clear to the disciples that even though you allowed it in Israel through the law of Moses, it wasn’t really your will for your children’s marriages to end that way.

And I chose to believe that your will for my marriage is to stand the test of time instead of being another statistic of divorce.

I take authority against the bondage of divorce that is trying to attack my family from different angles.

I declare the words of Mathew 15:13, that because this tree was not planted by my heavenly father, it shall be uprooted in the name of Jesus Christ.

May the bondage of divorce be broken now in Jesus’s name, Amen.

6. Breaking the Spirit of Barrenness and Impotence.

Father in heaven, you promised in your word to bless us with the fruit of the womb. I stand on that promise and come against the spirit of barrenness and impotence in my family.

You are the one who blesses couples with children and irrespective of what the situation around may look like, believe that you are blessing us with children too.

The same way you opened the womb of our matriarch of faith Sarah, I believe you are also blessing us as a family.

Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer and taking away our shame and pain, in Jesus’s name I pray, Amen.

7. Breaking the Spirit of Jezebel.

Lord Jesus, I approach the throne of grace with boldness for I am in need of your mercy.

I rededicate the life of my spouse and I to you that we might continue to lead holy and quiet lives that bring glory to you.

Father, I realize that we are up against an enemy that is constantly seeking an opportunity to devour us.

I ask that you help my spouse and me to be always alert and sober.

I take authority against the spirit of jezebel that comes to seduce me and my spouse to lust after other people.

May that spirit not take root in us. May any such weapon from the enemies come to go back to the sender without achieving its intended purpose.

Like Job made a covenant with his eyes not to look lustfully upon a woman.

I pray that you will help my spouse and me not to fall for the cheap tricks of the enemy. Thank you, Lord, Amen.

8. Financial Prosperity.

Father in heaven, it is your will for us to prosper and be in good health just as our soul prospers.

It is not your will for us to struggle financially as a family to the point that our marriage gets threatened.

I pray that you are going to heal our finances as a couple.

And even more importantly, I pray that you are going to help my spouse and me to be better stewards of the resources you entrust to us.

And as we do that, may you help my spouse and me to continue flourishing in our different pursuits.

May money and the lack therefore not cause unnecessary strain in our marriage.

In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen.

9. Spiritual Warfare.

Heavenly Father, your word reminds me that even though we live in the world, we cannot wage war as the world does.

Right now, my marriage is under attack but it is more of a spiritual attack.

My war is not against human beings but against the powers of darkness that are working against my marriage.

I take the breastplate of righteousness, the helmet of salvation, the belt of truth, the shield of faith, and the sword of the spirit.

Father, I wage war in the spiritual realm against any power of darkness that has been assigned to cause havoc against my family.

In the name, of Jesus, I stand on my watch and declare that the devil’s darts will be quenched by the shield of faith and they will not reach my family.

I enjoy victory from today henceforth, in Jesus’s name I pray, Amen.

Humanly speaking, it looks impossible to get back to where we were before but I take comfort in the promise of your word that what might be impossible with man is possible with God.

I, therefore, lift this heavy burden to you and leave it at your cross.

Help us through your divine providence to reach a place where we can trust one another again.

Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer, Amen.

There is no wound that is too bad that you can’t heal. And I, therefore, come to you in faith asking for the healing of my emotions.

Help me to get over every wound be totally healed as well. In Jesus’s name, Amen.

Dear Lord Jesus, you modeled for us the importance of forgiving those who wrong us when you forgave the soldiers who crucified you.
