Prayer for marriage reconciliation
(a prayer for a husband or wife to pray for forgiveness and restoration in a marriage)
You are the ground beneath our marriage.
You are the foundation to our friendship.
You are the safe place in which we rest.
Lord you know that problems we have been having, the reasons behind this sadness.
We confess our fears, failings and bitterness to you Lord.
And we put our trust in you.
We ask that you may turn the tide of our difficulties with your love.
A love that works through us,
A love that gives us your heart for each other.
We ask that you would give us hope as we work to overcome our differences.
A hope that turns the tide of bitterness,
A hope that restores our dreams.
A hope that awakens our passions and gives us strength for the future.
And we ask for your peace to be with us.
A peace that surpasses all understanding,
A peace that allows us to rest.
A peace that covers the hurts,
A peace that paves the way for reconciliation.
You are the ground beneath our marriage Lord.
We look to you.
Prayer for reconciliation with an ex
(a prayer for reconciliation after divorce)
You, and only you have seen and understood the reasons for our separation. We now come to you, our Lord and ask for peace. Peace to continue with our lives as individuals, peace to allow grace and mercy to heal the past. And we ask for grace. Your grace that enables us respect one another and the family and friends that journey with us. Help us to learn how we can release one another. Help us to desire blessing for the other and to see your healing through all aspects of this process.
"There is no fear in love; perfect love drives out all fear. So then, love has not been made perfect in anyone who is afraid, because fear has to do with punishment. We love because God first loved us."
(1 John 4:18-19, 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)
