Prayer for troubled marriage
I promised that I would always love, honour, cherish and respect when I married. Sometimes it is hard to keep these promises.
Please reignite our love where it has faded.
Please help us to communicate our needs and understand one another.
Please help us to remember good times and to cherish new times together.
Please help us to forgive, and also to respect and enjoy our differences.
You are part of our vision, you know us both deeply, only you understand the problems we face.
So we trust in you to restore our love. We choose to live in your promises, to take each day and transform it into a beautiful picture, an intimate friendship, and a testament to your love through us.
Prayer for a broken relationship
Father in heaven,
I feel so sad, because my heart is broken. I have lost the feelings of love in this relationship. I feel empty and so bewildered by what has happened.
You are my rock, my help in times of trouble.
I need you. I need your restoration, your love and hope in my heart. I trust you can heal the brokenness I feel.
"Above everything, love one another earnestly, because love covers over many sins."
(1 Peter 4:8, GNT)
"Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn't want what
it doesn't have.
Love doesn't strut,
Doesn't have a swelled head,
Doesn't force itself on others,
Isn't always "me first,""
(1 Corinthians 13:4-5, The Message)
"Love cannot be drowned
by oceans or floods;
it cannot be bought,
no matter what is offered"
(Song of Solomon 8:7, CEV)
"we trust in you to restore our love"
